HYACKS COME THROUGH IN SEASON FINALE
In one of the most thrilling games in the history of the program, the Varsity Hyacks came through with a 21-14 win over West Van on Friday night, to advance to the AAA provincial playoffs. With the Highlanders on the 1-foot line in the final minute of play, Jonathan Lopez, Makoto Brennan and Jeremy Wilson combined for the game (and season) saving tackle on 4th down.
After falling behind 7-0 early in the opening quarter, New West tied the game on a 13 yard TD from Kevin Sabau. The home team took the lead on a 1 yard QB sneak from Tommy Robertson. Then on the final play of the half, Robertson found Wilson for a 20 yd TD pass. Sabau recorded his first ever 100 yard rushing game (114), while Eric Teng and Pavan Mrock rushed for 90 and 85 yards respectively. Lopez meanwhile picked up 11 tackles on defense.
With the win the Hyacks finish the regular season with a 2-3 league record (4-5 overall) and claim the 4th and final playoff spot in the AAA Western conference, it's the 5th straight season the varsity team has reached the playoffs, and 8th time in the 9 year history of the program.
The Hyacks also finished with a 4-1 record in Friday night games at Mercer. Special thanks to all of the parents that assisted at all the games. You're a big reason that Mercer stadium is the place to be on Friday nights in the fall.
