Mariners win first game on home field

The Earl Marriott Mariners opened the football season – and their new field – in impressive fashion Friday, as hundreds of spectators, most of them students, watched the Mariners’ varsity squad edge the Rick Hansen Hurricanes 14-13.

The Earl Marriott Mariners opened the football season – and their new field – in impressive fashion Friday, as hundreds of spectators, most of them students, watched the Mariners’ varsity squad edge the Rick Hansen Hurricanes 14-13.

The game was the Mariners’ first on home turf in two years, as they waited for the field to be renovated and made regulation size.

Ian McMaster scored the first touchdown on the new field, rumbling 29 yards for a score in the first quarter.

EMS added a second TD when quarterback Cole Meyer found tight end Nathan Muir with a pass in the end zone. “You have no idea how good it felt to be out there on our own field, at our own school,” said EMS coach Michael Mackay-Dunn.

“It’s good to be home.”
