Handsworth Royals (15), Hugh Boyd Trojans (13)
The Royals went to the air to get the win over the Trojans on Friday night. Quarterback Tate Williams threw two touchdown passes to receiver Keelan White who had 7 catches for 144 yards, and Ethan Moir. Williams would also get a 30-yard field goal to seal the deal for the Royals.

Defensively, James Mooney would register 7 tackles and Diallo Ighorewo had 6 tackles, 2 sacks, and 1 INT for the Royals.

West Vancouver (24), Centennial Centaurs (6)

Holy Cross Crusaders (0), STMC Knights (34)

Seaquam Seahawks (46), Seahome [WA.] (28)
While Seaquam moved up this year to AAA, the defending AA champs took on Sehome in Bellingham on Saturday which resulted in a 46-28 victory for the BC team.

Leading 28-0 just before the half, Josh Haydu was 14 for 22 to go along with 2 passing touchdowns and 1 rushing touchdown on the night. The Seahawks would score again on the final play of the game when Sehome’s pass was intercepted and returned for a touchdown. The Seahawks had 15 penalties and will no doubt be working on correcting that this week.

Westsyde Blue Wave (29), Kelly Roadrunners (8)
Head coach of the Westsyde Blue Wave, Cory Bymoen, can be pretty happy with his teams win on Friday night against the Kelly Roadrunners in a non-conference matchup.

Quaterback Devon Konst was 18 for 25 on 249 yards. He threw to offensive weapons, Conor McCoy and Branden Lys both for touchdowns. McCoy had 6 receptions for 121 yards and Lys had 83 receiving yards on 7 catches as well as a field goal. Running back, Talen St. Jean had 13 carries on 149 yards to go along with 1 touchdown. Julian Ferrian had 61 yards and 1 touchdown as well. Defensively, the Blue Wave’s Matteo Viani registered 10 tackles, and 1 PBU, Logan Henry had 1 QB sack, 1 FF, and 1 BP, Greg Griffiths had 1 QB sack.

The Blue Wave will use this to build on as they get ready for the opening of their regular season which isn’t until October when they will meet the Vernon Panthers.

As for the Roadrunners, “We had a good opening weekend, we lost to Westsyde Secondary, 29 -8, but was a good game to get prepared for the regular season of play,” said head coach Ryan Bellamy.

Vernon Panthers (42), Robert Bateman Timberwolves(7)
There wasn’t any scoring in the 1st quarter as the Robert Bateman Timberwolves went up against the Vernon Panthers on Friday night.

The Panthers struck first with a 15-yard touchdown run. They added to the score with a 29-yard passing touchdown and finished off the 2nd quarter with a 61-yard fumble return making the score 20-0 at the half.

Vernon continued to be in the lead as they added a 27-yard field goal. The Wolves answered back with a 12-yard passing touchdown from quarterback Sam Davenport to Logan McDonald. McDonald would finish the night with 224 yards receiving to go along with 1 TD, and 1 INT.

However, the Panthers once again, ran for a 29-yard touchdown bringing the score to 29-7 going into the fourth quarter.

Bateman wouldn’t score again, however, Vernon continued their onslaught and scored 2 more touchdowns (21-yard passing TD and 15-yard rushing touchdown). Vernon would have 408 yards of total offense with a final score of 42-7.

Defensively for Bateman, Taylor Smith would record 7 tackles, Samuel Henneberry would also have 7 tackles and 2 FF, and Brock McCartney would register 8 tackles on the night.

While Bateman will work hard to make the necessary corrections during this week’s practice, they are already looking ahead to next week’s matchup against Hugh Boyd on Sept. 15th at 12:30 at home.

“We are excited to play in front of our student body and feed off the energy of the crowd.  I expect us to come out and to two things; 1) greatly reduce the number of turnovers we have (we had 6 vs Vernon) and 2) finish our drives,” explained head coach for the Timberwolves, David Mills. “We had over 300-yds of offence last week but turnovers and untimely penalties limited us to only 7 points.

Defensively we need to be consistently tougher against the run.  We gave up far too many yards for my liking last week.  We do those things we will have a successful week.”

Ballenas Whalers (20), GW Graham Grizzlies (25)

Mt. Baker [Wa.] (56), C. Fulton Maroons (14)
Other non-conference actions saw C. Fulton take on Mt. Baker. At the half the score was 35-0 for the Americans, however, Fulton would score two touchdowns in the second half by Koalden Gudeit-Oakden and Ryan Rumsey.

Mt. Baker is traditionally a strong team and are well coached. The Maroons will use this game as a stepping off point as they are a young team and this was a first game for some of the players.

Valleyview Vikings (0), PGSS Polars (42)
Prince George for the AA Varsity Northern conference crushed Valleyview on Saturday.
