Travelling to Chilliwack this weekend, the Atom Knights took part in an old-school trench battle when they met up with the Giants.
Special teams played a vital role with Jessie Chartrand and Tristan Maschke keeping the Giant's returners pinned in their own end, while defensively, continuous pressure up the middle by Austin Pattenden and Lucas Deane kept the offence on its heels.
Grinding out the ground game for the Knights, offensive linemen Tyson Smith, Gabe Fitzpatrick, and James Harder stood shoulder to shoulder to earn every yard their ball carriers gained.
When it was over the Knights put another one in the win column, defeating the Giants 12-7.
