WE'RE TALKING PLAYOFFS - THIS FRIDAY!
For the 6th straight year, Mercer Stadium will play host to the BC High School Football playoffs, as Abbotsford visits on Friday night, in a wildcard playoff game. The Hyacks come into the game following a close 34-28 loss to Mt Douglas to wrap up the regular season last Friday. The Hyacks held a 28-19 lead mid-way through the 4th quarter but couldn't finish the Rams off.
Broxx Comia led the way for the Hyacks offensively with 135 yards and a pair of TDs on 11 carries. Michael Kingsley added 87 yards and a TD on 13 carries, as the Hyacks finished with 331 yards on the ground. Defensively, Kinsale Philip returned to the Hyacks lineup with 10 tackles, while Evan Nolli added 9. Greyson Planinsic finished with 7 tackles and also returned a fumble for a TD in the 1st quarter.
The Hyacks defeated Abbotsford 40-6 on Homecoming back in September, but the Panthers have improved during league play. The last time the two programs met in the playoffs was in 2016 in the quarter finals at BC Place, with the Hyacks coming from behind to win 44-35. Kick-off is set for 7:30 on Nov 9th.
