Monday to Friday Colin Bradley uses his head to lay out framing floor plans, but come Sunday, his teammates use his head like a billiards bumper, hammering in crosses for Bradley to knock in with his noggin.
Halfmoon Bay used Bradley to its advantage in their 3-1 win over Ridgepoint.

Sechelt Indian Band teams opened up nine-pack of xspilitin (Salish for ‘’whoopass’’) against their opponents this week, with Wolves beating Sitas 9-1, and Chiefs beating Bulldogs 9-0.
Rick Timothy scored three, while Rich Watson and Junior Dixon each scored a pair with singles from Eddie Paul and Dan Muir for the Wolves.
Chiefs’ scorers were Kellen Feschuck with two, Keith Johnson, Byron Baptiste, Scotty Johnson, Marty ‘’McPretty-Fly-for-a-father-of-4-guy’’ August, John Jackson, Matt Joe Sean Dixon, Allen Marks and goalie Travis Nooski who dropped his gloves to trot out and bang one in.
Though the Bulldogs lose on goal count, they are the easy victors on the sportsmanship scoreboard. Their squad is a triumph of spirit over sore knees, of yin over yang; of soccer over golf. It is said that on the day a man hangs up his cleats and pulls out his clubs that his guardian angel weeps. Yet every Sunday that these silver-backed Bulldogs take to the field, they declare that that day is not today.
