The West Kootenay Men’s Flag Football League got off to a slow start Sunday at the Mount Sentinel field in South Slocan.
Game one of the two-game set was cancelled as defending champion Castlegar Vikings failed to field a team.
In the second game of the day, Hume Brewers appeared to be in mid-season form, pounding Dam Inn Mates 21-1.
Hume pivot Steven Doyle picked apart for three touchdowns en route to the lopsided victory. The victory avenged a loss by the Brewers to Dam Inn in the 2009 playoffs.
The Mates, last year’s finalists against the Vikings, used a couple of different quarterbacks in an attempt to ignite the offence.
However, the Mates could not penetrate the Hume defence.
The WKMFFL is a five-team league — Castlegar Vikings, Hume Brewers, Dam Inn Mates, Nelson Impact and Our Glass — playing Sunday’s the Mount Sentinel field.
Games time are 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.
Each team plays six games with the league ending in October.
The playoffs follow with the top place team facing the fourth best in one semi final and the second and third-place teams meeting in the other contest.
All games are played at Mount Sentinel Field.
