Following the Hyacks game on Friday at Mercer Stadium, the program will continue its tradition of recognizing our graduating seniors. Included in the list of 19 seniors are six players who have been with the Hyacks since Jr Bantam including: Trew Dancey, Connor Pattison, Sarban Sidhu, Matthew Thind, Jasdeep Uppal and Nick Walia. Other names like Liam Mackay and Josh Olango, joined the program in JV, while 5 others have transferred into NWSS for their senior seasons. This group of young men has grown together, worked extremely hard, and has helped to build the winning tradition of Hyack Football.
The players and the parent/guardians who have supported them, not just as football players but as students and young men for the past 17 years will also be recognized after the game, in what has become a very special tradition in the Hyacks program. Thanks to all of them for their contributions. Parents of the seniors are asked to check in with Mary and Deb behind the player's bench with 5 minutes to play in the 4th quarter.
As the season winds down, the Varsity Hyacks are still looking for help in a few of areas off the field, with no more than 2 home games remaining on the schedule. The most pressing need is for additional game night concession staff and season wrap up banquet assistance. If you are interested please contact Barb Drake or coach Lalji to get more details. Our program continues to receive outstanding parent and community support. We look forward to hearing from you.

On what turned out to be a perfect Friday night for football, the Varsity Hyacks staged a dramatic come from behind 13-10 win over 3rd ranked Vancouver College. The offense began things with a 15 play, 70 yard drive, capped by a Kinsale Philip 1 yard QB sneak, to make it 7-0 New West after the first quarter. The visitors took a 10-7 lead into the 4th quarter, before Philip found TE Prento Durigon for a 30 yd TD pass with less than 5 min to play for the game's final points.
Throughout the game the Hyacks defense held the opposition out of the endzone. Ben Tjernagel and Sammy Sidhu made TD saving tackles. Connor Pattison finished with 8 tackles and was also named Lineman of the game. Sidhu and Player of the Game Andrew Delamere each had 7 tackles and a turnover.
The Hyacks are now 2-1 in league play (4-2 overall). For a look at the photo album from last Friday's game courtesy of Alan Wardle, please go here .     
Their next opponent will be defending provincial champion and number one ranked Mt Douglas, who will visit Mercer Stadium on Friday. Please note the early 4:45pm kickoff time. 

Neither pounding rain nor gusting wind could stop our 14th annual Tailgate Auction from becoming our biggest and most successful to date. Over 200 guests and sponsors helped us raise the most-ever funds 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 NWSS Music director Steve Clement's Gr. 10 & 1l Jazz Band performance, which added the perfect ambience for the pre-auction reception sponsored by Pacific Breeze and Steel & Oak.  Key West Ford GM Adam Isfeld surprised everyone, offering up tickets to auction for the Dec. 3 Canucks vs Toronto game, where fans will see rookie phenom, Auston Matthews. We had some wild bidding wars - especially for the Chilcotin Ranch/Enterprise Rent-A-Car Holiday; and the headliner Hawaiian Vacation donated by Live Auction sponsor Westland Insurance and WI director Brent Atkinson, a long-time friend and supporter of the Hyacks.

Varsity player Connor 'The Answer' Pattison emerged triumphant in the hotly contested arm wrestling competition, defeating Yanni 'Zeus' Angelopoulos in the final.

The JV's got things started for the program on Thursdayr, with a 40-33 win over Vancouver College. Trailing 33-32, Kinsale Philip found Mattew Lalime for a 19 yard TD pass, in the back corner of the endzone on 4th down with just 9 seconds remaining in the game. The Hyacks trailed 25-6 at halftime but rallied with a strong second half. Broxx Comia scored on TD runs of 76, 10 & 70 yards. Philip also found the endzone on a 57 yard run, while Michael Zhang scored from 4 yards out.
With the win the JVs improve to 3-1 in league play (5-1 overall). They will host Mt Douglas on Friday at 2pm, in a rematch of last year's Provincial Championship game.


The Pee Wees were dominant on defense with a 7-0 win over the North Shore Panthers. Callum Rogers had another big day carrying the football and scored the only TD of the game (and the point after). Karrson MacCuaig and Jaxson Domville each recorded big QB sacks. Kushaal Aujla, Iija Scow and Liam Noakes all played well along the offensive line.
The Atoms turned in an offensive explosion as they defeated Richmond 49-12 at Minoru Stadium. Benicio Hageleit scored 3 TDs while Nathan Hillmann added 2, including one on a punt return. Daniel Penalver scored his first ever TD and QB Lukas Lalji rounded out the scoring. This Friday the Atoms will play at Mercer Stadium at 7:45 following the varsity game.
Team Orange defeated Silver 25-6 on a windy, rainy morning at Mercer Stadium. Christhony Dela Cruz scored on a 50 yard TD, Gavin Domaas added a pair of TDs, while Jacob Armstrong returned an interception for another major. James Contini turned in a great defensive effort. For the Silver team, Ethan Dunbar scored, while Dakota Hankins stood out on defense.
Lost 13-0 to North Surrey in a game that was moved to Mercer Stadium. Despite being held off the score sheet, the offense still played well, with big rushing gains from Jayden Dhinjal and JJ Pagaduan. Raaweya Maghera and Jai-shon Llewellyn stood out on defense.
