HYACKS RETURN HOME UNBEATEN

The varsity Hyacks, aka Road Warriors, return home following a 28-13 win at Seaquam, in a battle of two of the top ranked teams in BC. The win was a breakout performance for senior RB, Sammy Sidhu, who rushed for 187 yards and all 4 TDs. Zachery Northgraves added a 31 yard FG for the visitors.
 
Defensively, Kinsale Philip led the Hyacks with 10 tackles, including 2 for loss, while Sidhu added 8 tackles. Taran Birdi followed up his exceptional JV performance on Thursday with another two interceptions on Saturday, one of which came in the endzone and was returned 75 yards to set up a 4th quarter Hyacks TD. Sebastien Reid and Severio Asaba each added 5 tackles and a fumble recovery. As a group the defense came away with 5 turnovers and did not allow a point in the 2nd half.
 
The Hyacks are now 3-0 in league play (5-1 overall) and return home to Mercer Stadium for the first time in over a month when they play host to Notre Dame this Friday night. The Jugglers ended the Hyacks season a year ago in the provincial semi-finals. Three of the Hyacks final four games will be played at home.

JV's KEEP ROLLING
 
The JVs remained unbeaten following a 34-22 win at Mission last Thursday. Taran Birdi scored his first of 3 majors on the Hyacks first possession, as he caught a TD pass from Payton Meyers. Birdi would also add touchdowns on a punt return and interception return. Dominic Racher scored for the 2nd straight game and turned in a very good performance on both sides of the ball. Meyers would also connect with TE Matthew Drake for his first TD reception. JV's are now 4-0-1 overall, 1-0 in league play.
The JVs are back on the road on Thursday when they play at Burnaby Lake against STM at 3:15pm

YOUTH FOOTBALL
 
JR BANTAM:
In their Friday night lights game, the JBs lost a close 8-0 decision to North Surrey. Ethan Bresser was very strong on defense, coming up with a pair of sacks. Nic MacKinnon turned a screen play into a long TD, which unfortunately was called back by a penalty. Jordan Baba had several tough carries, dragging defenders and also led the team on defense with a number of key tackles Luke Cosalter and Nick Alvarez stood out along the line. The following night at BC Place Stadium the Hyacks defeated Westside at halftime of the BC Lions game, with Jaxson Domville scoring the game's only points.
 
 
PEE WEE:
Despite a loss to North Delta, RB Benicio Hageleit continues to impress for the pee wees. Gavin Garrett showed plenty of poise despite constant pressure. Defensively Josh Bath and Andrew Van den Driesen had strong performances.  
 
ATOM:
The Atoms improved their record to 4-1 following a hard fought 44-20 win over North Delta. With a slim 24-20 lead at halftime, the Hyacks defense recorded a shutout in the 2nd half, thanks to the play of Alexander Biniaris and Eli Smith, among others. Lucas Coelho scored his first TD of the season, Lukas Lalji and Nathan Hillmann each scored a pair of TDs, while Nigel Desrap opened the scoring. Daniel Penalver kicked 4 of 5 PATs and was also very good on kickoffs. EJ Hansraj stood out among the linemen. With the win, the Atoms clinch a spot in the VMFL semi-finals, with 2 games remaining in the regular season.
 
ATOM FLAG:
The Hyacks defeated the Westside Bears 6-0, in a tight defensive battle, with both teams having goal line stops. Gavin Domaas was the difference with a punt return for the games only TD. Defensive stand outs were Chase Domaas and Evan Holkestad.
