 HYACKS RETURN HOME FRIDAY NIGHT

After a bye week, the Hyacks will return home to Mercer Stadium where they also hope to return to the win column, as they will take on Vancouver College in a key league game for both teams. The Hyacks have had a strong two weeks of practice and will be expecting improved defensive performances from a number of key players, starting with defensive linemen Yanni Angelopoulos and Isaiah James, along with linebackers Connor Pattison and Trew Dancey. Both teams are currently 1-1 in league play. The Irish defeated the Hyacks 28-12 in the AAA Provincial semi-finals last year at BC Place.



JVs WIN IN DOWNPOUR
 
Even a night of heavy rain couldn't stop the Hyacks from coming up with a hard-fought 32-28 win over Notre Dame. Kinsale Philip found tight end Evan Nolli for a 16 yard TD reception. Later in the first quarter Philip scored on a 2 yard QB sneak, which gave the Hyacks a 16-14 lead. The home team wouldn't trail again, thanks to Michael Zhang who scored on an 8 yard run in the 3rd quarter, before Evan Pattison scored from 25 yards out to make it 32-22. The JVs are currently 4-1 overall (2-1 in league play) and will travel to Vancouver College for a game this Thursday.

YOUTH FOOTBALL


JR BANTAM:
A second straight win, this time a 25-6 decision over Vancouver at Mercer Stadium, improving their record to 3-2-1. Andros Dancey again scored 4 TDs, with Gus Oliver leading the way on the offensive line with several "pancake" blocks. Aiden Sattler led a dominant D-line performance with a pair of sacks, while Gabriel Bastos ran well and kicked a pair of PATs.
 
PEE WEE:
In a tight Defensive battle, the Hyacks fell 6-0 to the Westside Reds. There were a number of standout defensive performances, led by Jack Nyang, Gavin Garret and Issac Shirshac. Offensively, Marcus Savela completed passes to Greg Palmer and Jaxson Domville.
 
ATOM:
The Atoms fell 26-0 to North Surrey. Despite the loss the Hyacks played well, with multiple long drives deep into T-birds territory, but couldn't convert them into points. Gianni Bosa, EJ Hansraj and Lachlan Mackay turned in solid efforts on defense while Oliver Romero ran a kickoff back 40 yards to the 15 yard line. Benicio Hageleit had another strong game running the ball. The Atom Hyacks will play in a flag game this Friday night at BC Place prior to the BC Lions game.
 
FLAG BLACK
The Tyke Black team defeated the Richmond Raiders 33-0. Demitri Biniaris and Dylan Jones both scored a pair of touchdowns and Alexander Biniaris added one. The defense was tight with key support from Jai-shon Llewellyn and George Paterakis.
 
FLAG ORANGE:
Lost 20-6 to Coquitlam. Keegan Wilson opened the scoring for the Hyacks with a 30 yard run. Christhony Dela Cruz and Jacob Armstrong stood out defensively.
