HYACKS BACK AT MERCER FRIDAY NIGHT
The varsity Hyaks return to the friendly confines of Mercer Stadium this Friday night as they take on the Centennial Centaurs. It will be the Hyacks first game of the year against BC competition after falling 55-20 last Friday night in Blaine, WA.
Despite the loss, there were plenty of positives for the Hyacks, including a record setting performance from receiver Michael Thind, who caught 10 passes for 164 yards, breaking the single game marks previously held by Tristan Sands (2013) and Daniel English (2009). Thind opened the scoring on a 59 yard TD reception from Jamie Shiho. The senior QB may have played his best game as a Hyack, completing 13 of 23 passes for 187 yards and 1 TD, adding 58 yards and another TD on 6 rushes. David Penalver had a spectacular 95 yard kickoff return for a major, to round out the Hyacks scoring.
The Hyacks defeated the Centaurs last season 11-6. They are always a team with plenty of fast athletes, and this year is no different. Game time is 7:30 pm. For a complete recap of last Friday's game and a look ahead to this week's action, please check out The Record
JVs TRAVEL TO WJ MOUAT ON THURS
The JVs fell 24-0 to Belleview HS, one of the top high school programs in America. Some close to that program called this freshman class their best in the last 20 years. Despite not being able to find the endzone, the Hyacks moved the ball effectively for much of the game and forced the Wolverines to work for most of their points.
Receiver/DB Shane Belsher, RB/LB Sammy Sidhu stood out for the Hyacks on both sides of the ball. Among the freshman Evan Nolli continued to show improvement. This week the JVs will travel to Abbotsford to take on WJ Mouat at 6 pm.
It was Hyack Football Family Day on Labor Day Monday, as the Royal City Hyacks youth football program began its season at Mercer Stadium. All tyke flag and tackle teams played at home on the same day for the only time this season.
The JBs started the season with a 55-15 win over White Rock. Greyson Planinsic, Payton Myers and Stewart Phillips scored 2 TDs each. Gustin Oliver, Anekin Gladstone and Paven Kainth led the defense. Josh Baba capped the day of with a QB dive up the middle.
Despite playing with a small roster, the pee wees played with a tremendous amount of heart in a loss to Coquitlam. Jacob Maccumber was strong on both sides of the ball. Daniel Cooper finished with 4 tackles and a forced fumble, while Alex Dragon had 3 tackles and a fumble recovery.
The Hyacks shutout the Richmond Raiders 24-0, thanks to a stingy defense kept the visitors on their own side of the field all game, giving up only 3 first downs! Andrew van den Driesen registered a sack which caused a fumble. The offence was led by Markus Savela with two rushing touchdowns and 3 successful PAT kicks.
All five flag teams were in action and all were involved in very close games, coming away with two wins. Strong performances came from Lukas Lalji who caught a pair of TD passes in the Grey team's 19-6 win over North Delta. Jake Gardiner scored a pair of TDs for the Black team against North Surrey.
While registration has now filled up for most of the teams, our pee wee team is still looking for more players. If you know of anyone aged 10-11 (2004-2005) that is still interested in joining, please have them register online here
