TAILGATE AUCTION A SUCCESS
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 Winery and Steel & Oak Brewing Co. We welcomed our team sponsors, The Record, G&F Financial Group, Westland Insurance, Key West Ford and Team Dave Vallee and friends - who's support on and off the field have helped make our High School and Community football programs stand out for all the right reasons. Angela Smith, 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.

SENIORS NIGHT THIS FRIDAY
The Hyacks will recognize their 19 graduating seniors along with their parents this Friday night, in a ceremony prior to the team's game against Seaquam at Mercer Stadium. New West is coming off a bye week where the focus was tackling and competitiveness. The players have responded well and spirits are high heading into Friday night's matchup.
The team will be led by lineman Evan Nolli who is tied for the provincial lead in QB sacks with 9, he is also 5th in tackles with 47, the most among D-linemen in BC. The Hyacks will look to get the offense back on track, as it has been for much of the season, led by the 3-headed backfield of Broxx Comia, Michael Kingsley and Greyson Planinsic, a group that has combined for close to 1000 yards on the ground along with 10 TDs. The team is now 4-2 in conference play (5-3 overall) and a win on Friday would lock up a home game for the first round of the playoffs.
JV HYACKS WIN BIG AT MISSION
The Hyacks turned in their most complete game of the season, a 34-20 win over Mission secondary last Thursday.
Jayden Kastelein opened the scoring on a 24 yd TD run.
Andros Dancey then took to the air, with a pair of TD passes, 29 yards to
Aidan Sattler and 26 yards to
Deakon Young. In between
Balraj Munjal returned a fumble 50 yards for a TD. Dancey then found
Gagan Mandair for a 46 yard completion, that set up a QB sneak TD which put the Hyacks up 34-6 at halftime. The win improves the Hyacks league record to 2-1, with the next league game coming up this Thursday at 5:30 at Mercer Stadium against Seaquam.
The RCHFC continued their regular season this past weekend:
The JBs secured a playoff spot beating the Langley Outlaws 50-13. The offensive output was led by Jaxson Domville scoring three times on passes from Teagan Barre and Trey McLenan and adding a rushing major. Barre also threw touchdown scores to Jayden Bustamante and Sartaj Mahli, who also added a pick 6 on the board. On defense Jack Turner stood out, as did Harman Sanghera in the trenches.
The Pee Wees lost to Coquitlam on Friday night at Mercer Stadium. Hilighted performances came from Lukas Lalji who took off on a 100 yard run, down to the 1 yard line before Nathan Hillmann punched the ball across the goal line. Nicolas Panesar and Connor Baker were among those who stood out on defense.
