Mariners receiver Patrick Grabowski sheds a tackle as he runs upfield during last week’s game against the Moscrop Panthers.

Mariners win game on home turf

Owen Dickie throws three touchdown passes in victory over Moscrop Secondary.

The Earl Marriott Mariners senior football team continued its success on their home turf last week, earning a 24-0 shutout over the Moscrop Secondary Panthers.

The Mariners – who edged Nanaimo earlier this month and are now 2-0 in preseason action – found much success through the air against the Panthers, as quarterback Owen Dickie was 10-for-20 passing, for 349 yards and three touchdowns.

Two of the TDs were hauled in by Dickie’s favourite target on the day, wideout Patrick Grabowski, who finished the game with five catches for 189 yards – including one 89-yard catch-and-run that he took into the end zone.

Fellow receiver Allan Hogg also had a big day, with three catches for 111 yards, while running backs Rhys McMartin and Al Vergara each had rushing scores, of 13 and two yards, respectively.

Grabowski was equally strong on the defensive side of the ball, leading the team with nine tackles.

Elsewhere on the defence, linebacker Wylie Gillette had six tackles, McMartin had a key interception and Brooks McNabb had a fumble recovery.

“It was a good team effort – the players played with determined resolve,” said EMS head coach Michael Mackay-Dunn.

The Mariners are back on the field today (Friday) when they host the Frank Hurt Hornets at Earl Marriott. Kickoff is 3:45 p.m.
