QUITE POSSIBLY OUR BEST TAILGATE AUCTION YET
Another successful Tailgate Auction sponsored by River Market at Westminster Quay is in the books. Last Saturday evening nearly 180 guests and sponsors helped us reach our fundraising goal for the NWSS Hyack Football program (with a portion of proceeds going to the Royal City Hyack Football Club).
There were special moments throughout the evening, including the NWSS Gr.12 Jazz Quartet that added the perfect ambience for the pre-auction reception sponsored by Pacific Breeze and Steel & Oak Brewing Companies. We welcomed our team sponsors, The Record, G&F Financial Group, Westland Insurance, Key West Ford and Team Dave Vallee and friends - whose support on and off the field have helped make our Community and high school football programs stand out for all the right reasons. Barb Beale put up two tickets to KURIOS Cirque du Soleil for the auction - and she also scored the winning bid for the grand prize Hawaiian Vacation, donated by Live Auction sponsor Westland Insurance and WI director Brent Atkinson, a long-time friend and supporter of the Hyacks.
Isaiah "Big Pappy" James
edged out fellow varsity captain, Yanni 'Zeus' Angelopoulos in an arm wrestling bout that caused a frenzy amongst their fans.
If you want to get in on the fun of organizing next year's 15th annual Hyack Football Tailgate Auction, emailMary-Beth Philip. A number of our volunteers are 'graduating' and they want to pass the torch to new Hyack Football parents.
HYACKS START FAST AT HOME
The varsity Hyacks returned home and continued their winning ways, knocking off defending Western conference champion Notre Dame, 44-27 at Mercer Stadium. Broxx Comia opened the scoring on the Hyacks 2nd offensive play, taking a short pass and going 63 yards for the TD, his first of 2 TDs in the game. Sammy Sidhu also scored the first of his 2 TDs on a 63 yard fumble return, as the Hyacks jumped out to a 31-7 lead mid-way through the 2nd quarter.
Defensively, Sidhu (11 tackles) and Severio Asaba (8 tackles) led the way. The special teams also contributed as Sebastien Reid scored on a 75 yard kickoff return and Zachery Northgraves chipped in with a 39 yard field goal. Sidhu was named the Sportcheck Player of the Game, while center Anthony Dillman was named the Dairy Queen Lineman of the Game.
The Hyacks are now 4-0 in league play (6-1 overall) and will play host to Belmont Secondary on Friday at 5 pm. Please note the early start time.
For a complete recap of last Friday night's game
JVs remained unbeaten with a thrilling 14-9 over STM on Thursday at Burnaby Lake Sports Complex. Taran Birdi opened the scoring, catching a TD pass from Payton Meyers. Himat Garcha scored the other TD as the Hyacks took a 14-0 lead into halftime. In the final moments, the Hyacks needed a goal-line stand to preserve the win. Dom Racher, Matthew Drake, Pavan Kainth and Vishaan Narayan were among those who stood out on defense. The JVs are now 5-0-1 overall (2-0 in league play) and will play host to WJ Mouat this Thursday night at Mercer Stadium.
Some outstanding performances in a loss to Cloverdale. Teagan Barre put on a passing clinic, throwing for over 100 yards. Jairus Angelo, Nic McKinnon, Terrance Booker and Dennis Glavas were on the receiving end of some nice passes. Angelo scored a pair of TDs, one through the air and one on the ground, while McKinnon also added an interception. Strachan Liberman made some touchdown saving tackles at safety. Jordan Baba scored a rushing TD and continues to lead the defense in tackles.
After a slow start, the Atoms outscored Richmond 36-22. Nathan Hillmann returned the opening kickoff for a TD. Mateo McDonell added a TD while Amun Thiara was on the receiving end of a pass from Eli Smith. EJ Hansraj came into play some strong defense in the 2nd half. Lukas Lalji added 3 TDs and an interception. If the Atoms win their regular season finale this Sunday at North Surrey, they will earn a home playoff game.
The Hyacks defeated the GSL 49ers 28-12. Jett Abel ran for a TD and threw for another to Aj Meltzer. Meltzer also ran for a TD and had a kickoff return for the final score. Defensive standouts were Kai Lewin and Brody Busch.
Team Orange fell 18-8 this week to North Surrey. Christhony Dela Cruz and Miguel Perez each scored TDs and were dominant on both sides of the ball, while Austin Zhang added a 30 yard run to the 1 yard line. Aaron Hughs was solid at center. Defensively, Sean Inglis, Liam Uppal and Aryan Jhutee turned in great efforts.
