HOME OPENER THIS FRIDAY

Hyack fans will get to welcome back their favorite team this Friday night as the 2018 season gets under way at Mercer Stadium. And it won't be the traditional early season exhibition game, thanks to an expansion in the AAA Western Conference, Friday's showdown against Carson Graham will be the first regular season game of the year.

 

The Hyacks, currently ranked 3rd in the AAA Provincial pre-season rankings, are coming off a hard fought 28-12 loss to Liberty High School in Renton, WA. Senior RB Broxx Comia got the Hyacks on the board with an electrifying 65 yard catch and run where he broke several tackles. Kinsale Philip had one of the best games of his career, completing 12 of 23 passes for 201 yards and a TD, he also rushed 17 times for 54 yards and a TD and added 6 tackles on defense. His favorite target was Ajay Chol who caught 6 passes for 80 yards. Defensively Evan Nolli led the way with 8 tackles including 1 for loss.

JV SEASON STARTS ON THURSDAY
 
The 2018 JVs will begin their season at Mercer Stadium on Thursday against South Delta. This will be the first ever meeting between the two programs at the JV level. A number of JV team members have had a very good fall camp and were rewarded with the opportunity to "play up" on Friday night for the Varsity team: Andros Dancey, Deakon Taylor-Young, Gus Oliver, Jayden Kastelein and Jacob MacCumber all contributed and should be key performers for the JVs on Thursday.
 
The JVs have won 81 percent (52-12-1) of their games the past 6 seasons and there is every reason to expect that trend to continue in 2018.

HOMECOMING, PRESENTED BY KEYWEST FORD, ON SEPT 14th
 
Homecoming 2018 is right around the corner, as the Hyacks will celebrate the new season and their 2017 championship, along with another exciting game. The whole community is invited to cheer on the Hyacks Varsity team as they take on the Abbotsford Panthers, next Friday night, September 14th at Mercer Stadium.
 
The pre-game festivities start at 4:30 p.m. with the annual flag football challenge for Hyacks alumni. Family-fun starts at 5:00 p.m. and features on-field kids' activities like the bouncy castle and football toss.
And of course, you could WIN a pre-owned Ford vehicle in a raffle, courtesy of Key West Ford.
 
The game kicks off at 7:30 p.m. just after the game ball is parachuted onto the field by the B.C.Sky Diving Team. For those out of town fans who can't attend the game, it will be broadcast live on SportsCanada.tv:
