HYACKS TO RECEIVE FUNDS FROM NISSAN KICKOFF PROJECT
 
The NWSS Football program is one of the recipients of this year's Nissan Kickoff Project! Our program will receive $5,000 from Nissan Canada, as they look to support youth football in Canada. The Nissan grassroots football program "Nissan Kickoff Project" will provide funding and support to 26 high school football programs across Canada. With this funding, we will be able to purchase additional equipment, training materials or whatever other support they need to elevate our game and program. As South Delta is the other program in BC that has been selected to receive this funding, Nissan Canada will be at the game on Nov 3rd to make the presentations and conduct a variety of promotions.
Thank you Nissan Canada!

STAN STEWARDSON (1938-2017)
 
The NWSS Football program would like to offer condolences to the family of Stan Stewardson, a long-time New Westminster resident, on his passing last Thursday. Stan played both football and basketball at Lester Pearson High School in the mid-50s and has been a big supporter of our football program since we re-launched in 2003. He was also the head men's basketball coach at SFU in the 1980s and a successful lacrosse player and coach with the Salmonbellies. 
A memorial service will be held on Nov 18th at 2pm in Pearson gym.

HYACKS TO PLAY FOR WESTERN CONFERENCE TITLE ON FRIDAY

The Hyacks enter the final game of the regular season unbeaten following a 30-12 win at Carson Graham. Michael Kingsley scored the game's first TD from 3 yards out, followed by a pair of rushing TDs from QB Kinsale Philip, to give the visitors a 21-0 halftime lead. That final TD of the half came on a 99.5 yard drive, that took just over a minute, during the final moments of the half. In the 2nd half Zachery Northgraves connected on a 35 yard field goal, before Sebastien Reid rounded out the scoring on a 21 yard run. Lucas Sabau paced the offense with 160 yards on 11 carries. Defensively, Sammy Sidhu was a force with a season-high 13 tackles, while Severio Asaba added 6 tackles and a pair of interceptions.  

The Hyacks are now 6-0 in league play (8-1 overall) and will play their final game of the regular season on Friday at Mercer Stadium at 7:30 pm against South Delta. Like the Hyacks, the Sun Devils are among the top teams in BC this season. With a win the Hyacks will take home the highly competitive AAA Western Conference title and a first round playoff bye. In addition, the two teams annually play for the Kushnir Boot, named after the late Bill Kushnir, who started football programs at both schools. And finally this game will also be Seniors Night, as the program will pay tribute to our 11 graduating seniors and their families.

JV's WIN CONFERENCE TITLE
 
The JVs completed an unbeaten regular season with a 46-12 win over Centennial on Thursday. Payton Meyers opened the scoring on the first play of the game, returning a kickoff 82 yards for a TD. A few plays later, Gr 9 RB Frank Chan scored his first-ever TD, he would also add another rushing major later in the game. Austin Ducommun also scored his first TD, intercepting a pass and returning it 31 yards for a TD, making the game 20-0 before the 5 minute mark.
   
Gr 9 TE Gagan Mandair caught 3 passes in this game, including his first-ever TD, from 20 yards out, Kirk Bothwell and Dominic Racher also added TDs. Other notable performances came from DB Manaf Al-Jiwadi and linemen Sam Webb and Jayden Williams. The JVs are now 7-0-1 overall (4-0 in league play) and will have a bye this week. Next Thursday, Nov 9th the team will play host to a AAA Wildcard Playoff game at Mercer Stadium.

YOUTH FOOTBALL
 
JR BANTAM:
Won their 2nd straight game, a 42-6 decision over Coquitlam. Jordan Baba had an outstanding day, with 3 long rushing TDs, and adding an interception. Jacob MacCumber caught a pair of touchdowns and was a force defensively. Ethan Bresser was seemingly unblockable, registering numerous tackles in the backfield, while Nicolas Alvarez was dominant on both sides of the line of scrimmage. Lucas Steele also played a relentless game on both sides of the ball. The JBs now need a win in their final regular season game this Sunday to qualify for the VMFL playoffs.
 
PEE WEE:
Lost their final game of the season, at North Surrey. Gavin Garrett followed up his own long run by scoring on a QB sneak. Garrett and Braiden Grant connected on a pass early in the game. Andrew Van den Driesen continued his season-long strong defensive play, while Antonio Hageleit and Jack Turner also came up with some key tackles. Linemen Cormac Knudsen, Logan Corbin and Jack Nyang also played well. Despite a very short bench, all of the players gave a tremendous effort to finish the season.
 
ATOM:
The Atoms had a bye this weekend following a 7-1 regular season. The team will play host to White Rock this Sunday at Mercer Stadium in what will be the first ever home playoff game for our club at either the Atom or Pee Wee level. Game time TBA.
                  
TYKE FLAG:
Team Orange brought home another victory, 31-6 against the Langley Stallions. Austin Zhang and Christhony Dela Cruz each scored and were dominant of both defense and offense. Payton Vahra and Aaryan Jhutee each scored their first TDs of the season, both on 50 yard runs. QB Aaron Hughes and center Sean Inglis connected on a PAT.

On a perfect night at Mercer Stadium, the Tyke Black team fell to Westside. The Warriors scored first, before Jai-shon Llewellyn tied things up with a TD. Ken Marasigan attempted and made couple of passes including a long one to Jack Chambers. Matt Madigan had some good runs and Travis Zimmerman was among the defensive standouts.
