After a perfect 9-0 regular season, the Jr Bantams will play the first playoff game in their history on Sunday at Ryall Park. Last Friday night the JBs won 45-22 at Mercer Stadium against Coquitlam. The game was close at half-time, 22-14, before the home team turned it on in the 2nd half to remain undefeated. Jamie Shiho rushed for over 200 yards, behind the great blocking of Brian Cagampan, who also had a long TD run of his own. Jeff Lugtu added an interception return for a TD.

MUST WIN GAMES THIS WEEK AT MERCER
If the Varsity Hyacks plan to make the AAA playoffs for the 5th straight season, they will need to win this Friday night at Mercer Stadium against West Van HS. Both the Hyacks and Highlanders come into the game with 1-3 league records and the winner will get the 4th and final playoff spot in the Western conference. West Van is much improved over the past few seasons. Last week they led Notre Dame 3-0 at halftime before eventually falling.
New West will be looking for big performances from the likes of Jeremy Wilson, Jonathan Lopez and Tommy Robertson. Wilson will play his first game at linebacker after spending all season at defensive line. Lopez returned to the secondary 3 weeks ago and will also be asked to contribute this week on offense. Robertson will lead an offense that hopes to return to the form it showed in the league opener 4 weeks ago.
The Varsity Hyacks are 3-1 so far this season at Mercer Stadium on Friday nights. A reminder that this Friday's game was moved to Mercer after originally being scheduled for West Van HS. Kickoff will be at 8 pm. The Hyack Pee Wee team will play beforehand at 6 pm.
On Thursday, the JV squad will play a game with similar playoff implications against West Van. Among those who have had a very good week of practice: Bogdan Pavel, Harper Sherman, Stewart Sommerfeld Tanner Jorgenson and Angelo Tanjuaquio. Kickoff on Thursday will be at 5:30 pm at Mercer Stadium.

HAPPY HYACKS HALLOWEEN
Here's a look at the Hyacks who took part in the annual costume contest. Kevin Sabau won the NCAA Football 12 video game. Coach Oatway needs to step his game up!
CONGRATS TO LOCAL TEAMS
The Hyack Football program would like to congratulate Coach Shawn Olson and the UBC Thunderbirds for their 36-23 win over the #1 ranked team in Canada, the University of Calgary. With the win the T'birds finish the Canada West season at 6-2 and will host a playoff game for the first time since 1999. UBC is now ranked 6th in the CIS, and have a pair for former Hyacks on their roster: starting LB Vivie Bojilov and RB Warren Reece. UBC will now play host to U of Saskatchewan on Saturday at 2 pm at Thunderbird Stadium.
Also good luck to the BC Lions this Saturday night in their game against Montreal at BC Place. If the Lions win they will finish first in the CFL's Western Division. That means they will have a bye next weekend and play host to the Western Final the following Sunday. If that happens, the first round of the high school playoffs will be at BC Place next weekend, and if they Hyacks win this Friday, they will be there to play their wildcard playoff game at the dome.
