The JB's turned in an impressive come from behind win, 48-20 in Victoria. The Hyacks trailed 20-16 at halftime, before pulling together in the second half and outscoring the Renegades 32-0. Kyle Huish scored 3 times, Vishaan Narayan rushed for 2 more TDs and Greyson Planinsic added one TD to his numbers. Max King, Nathan Hull and James Duffy were very good on down field blocks on sweeps as receivers.
The Atom Hyacks defeated South Delta 24-16. Issac Shirshac stood out on defence with an interception and later forced a fumble which he recovered himself. Andrew Van Den Driessen ran a reverse on two separate occasions for 50+ yards both times and scored a touchdown. Markus Savela and Greg Palmer both had solid rushing performances and each scored a touchdown. Alex Goldsberry stepped up and played a solid role on the offensive line and recorded key tackles playing on the defensive line.
It was all Hyacks, all the time, on Friday night at Mercer stadium, as the tyke teams wrapped up the evening with our own in-house flag games. All of the players were introduced and came running through the tunnel to music with some rather interesting nicknames. Thanks to Mary Feldhaus, Tandrea Jang and all of the coaches and volunteers for putting on a memorable event for the kids
Winners for the RCHFC youth raffle were also announced on Friday night:

Grey - Quintin Pleasents was big on defense with an interception. Solid throws from Kai Jang-Read and great catches by JJ Charles-Davis.
