WESTERN CONFERENCE CHAMPS
The Hyacks saved their best performance for last, with a dominant 63-16 win over South Delta on Seniors Night. Sammy Sidhu opened the scoring on the Hyacks first possession with a 41 yard run. Lucas Sabau from (3 yards), Kinsale Philip (50 yard) and Sidhu again (18 yards) paced the Hyacks to a 29-8 lead after the first quarter. Sebastien Reid scored twice in the 2nd quarter on runs of 33 and 56 yards to give the home team a 43-8 lead shortly before halftime. Sidhu rushed for 187 yards in the first half. In the third quarter, Sabau again (43 yards), Juan Cespedes (20 yards) and Michael Kinglsey (10 yards) rounded out the scoring, as the Hyacks racked up 551 yards rushing, a new single game school record.
The defensive performance was equally dominant, with Philip leading the way with 12 tackles and 2 QB sacks. Sidhu was named the Sportcheck Player of the game, while Isaiah James was named Dairy Queen Lineman of the Game.
The win gave the Hyacks the coveted Kushnir Boot, along with the Western Conference regular season title. It also capped a first ever unbeaten regular season, as the team finished 7-0 in league play (9-1 overall) and will earn a first round playoff bye. A complete recap of last Friday night's game here.

JV's TO HOST PLAYOFF GAME ON THURSDAY

The Hyacks enter the game following an unbeaten regular season (7-0-1 overall, 4-0 in league play) and a bye last week. The Hyacks will have Mahtab Garcha back in the lineup after missing the last couple of games due to injury. He joins the backfield with his brother Himat, along with Greyson Planinsic and Dominic Racher, who continues to impress with his play on both sides of the ball.
Won 38-12 in their VMFL semi-final game over White Rock. Leading just 8-6 at halftime, the Hyacks used a very strong 2nd half performance to score 30 straight points and pull away with the win. Key to the win was the improved play of the offensive line, which included
Noah Perera, Jason Rithaler, EJ Hansraj, Amun Thiara
and Zafar Hassanali. Nigel Derasp scored the first 2 TDs for the Hyacks, Lukas lalji also added a pair of majors, while Nathan Hillmann scored 1 TD and was his usual "Beast" self defensively with countless tackles for loss.
The team will now advance to the VMFL Championship this Sunday at Centennial Oval, this marks the first time in the history of RCHFC that an Atom team has reached the VMFL finals.
Saw their season come to an end with a 9-8 loss at North Surrey, snapping a 2-game winning streak
. Teagan Barre connected with Nick McKinnon for a long TD pass to give the Hyacks an 8-0 lead at halftime. Nick Pomper intercepted 2 passes in what was a very good overall defensive performance.
The Hyacks defeated the GSL Raiders 22-20. AJ Meltzer scored all 2 TDs and converted two of them. Nickolas Weeks and Mathew Kastelein stood out with their blocking. The team finished a successful regular season in 2nd place with a 6-2 record. They will open the playoff next Sunday against the 7th seeded team.
Hyacks Team Black dominated their pool in the VMFL Jamboree, winning all four games. Matt Madigan scored in every game, Ken Marasigan threw touchdown passes including one to JJ Pagaduan who also did well protecting the QB. Jack Chambers and Austin Che also reached the end zone.
Team orange finished 1-2-1 in Pool B. Payton Vahra, Austin Zhang, Miguel Perez and Cruz all made impressive 50 yard TD runs throughout the tournament and stood out on both sides of the ball. Owen Coelho also made a number of good runs and Sean Inglis was dominant of defense.
