Following a lopsided 61-7 win over Handsworth in the wildcard playoffs on Friday at Mercer Stadium, the Hyacks advance to the provincial quarter finals and will play at BC Place Stadium for the first time since 2011.
On Friday night, Trew Dancy set a school record by scoring 5 TDs in a single game. He also became the 7th player in program history to rush for over 200 yards in a single game, with 225 yards on just 15 carries, and has been named the Provincial Player of the Week. Josh Olango rushed for a pair of TDs while David Penalver and Josh Nerona each added 1 TD, as the Hyacks rushed for 546 yards, the 2nd most in school history.

Defensively, Rochon Bhattacharya, Connor Pattison and Jeff Lugtu each recorded 6 tackles. Bhattacharya also added 2 interceptions, while Pattison added a QB sack, one of four on the night for the Hyacks defense. Declan Baker was named the linemen of the game. A complete recap of Friday's game can be found here.

Advance tickets can be purchased for $10 from any varsity player, or you can purchase them online and we will have the tickets delivered to you. Tickets are also available from Marilyn Davis in the sigma office. Tickets at the gate will cost $15.


Redemption will be on the minds of the JV Hyacks as they will face Mt Boucherie this Thursday night at Mercer Stadium. The Bears ended the Hyacks season in this same quarter final round a year ago, in a thrilling 39-35 game, also at Mercer Stadium.
The Hyacks enter the 2015 AAA playoffs following an unbeaten 9-0 record against BC competition and a 2nd straight division title. Following a bye last week, the JVs will go into the post-season as the number one seed in the province, the highest seed ever for the program. 


The JBs saw a promising season come to an end with an opening round 23-8 playoff loss to North Surrey. The Hyacks had 3 other drives deep into Cardinals territory that came up empty. Matthew Drake turned in a very impressive game on defense leading the team in tackles. Kyle Huish scored the lone Hyacks TD, while Pavan Kainth and Mahtab Garcha stood out along the lines. The loss follows a 5-3 record in the regular season.
The Hyack Atom team lost its opening round playoff game 38-8 to the first place Cloverdale Lions.  While playing with a limited bench, the Atom team held Cloverdale to a 16-8 score at the half with a chance to tie the game late. Greg Palmer scored the only Hyacks rushing touchdown.  Cole Kelsie and Issac Shirshac played strong on defense at the corner positions, while Jack Nyang and Andrew van den Driessen made many key tackles.
The flag teams wrapped up their season at the VMFL Jamboree on Saturday at Mackin Park in Coquitlam. Even the muddy conditions couldn't dampen their enthusiasm after what has been a fun-filled season. We'd like to thank all the coaches, volunteers, parents and of course the players for their commitment, rain or shine. We had a record number of flag players this season and hope to have all of you back next season
Grey - Elijah O'Neale was all over the field throughout the morning, with flags galore and a TD. JJ Charles-Davis threw a TD pass, Kai Jang-Read scored his 2nd TD of the season, while Lukas Lalji scored a TD in each game. The team finished 2-0-2.
Black - Picked up their first win of the season, with the kids calling their own plays at the end of the last two games.
Ben Yu played well again at QB. Alex Dolmat had some long runs, while Jonah Merinuk, who hadn't scored all season, scored 3 TDs on Saturday.
Silver & White - Combined forces and finished the jamboree with a 3-0-1 record. Key defensive plays were made by LJ Hill-Godin, Aveen Prasad, Amun Thiara and Dylan Jones was the reigning blitz king on defense. Outstanding offensive performances came from EJ Hansraj, Mateo McDonnell and Skylar Singh.
Orange - Finished 2 and 2.

From Nicole Pasacreta - Head coach NWSS Cheer,
The BC Cheerleading Association, for the first time in history has been given one partially paid high school bid to the ICU High School World Championships in Florida this coming February. The bid includes all accommodations upon arrival. Best news of all, the bid has been given to us!!!  
Because of the short time frame we have to pull it together, we are reaching out to our biggest supporters in hopes that you can help us find a way to get there.
We immediately began fundraising after learning about this just in the last few days.  But I fear we will come up short.  Many of our families are low income, and cannot afford to send their children on a trip.
To that end, we are asking if you, or any possible connection, could provide financial support to assist us in this amazing opportunity.
Our goal is to raise $12,000 to cover our flights (for 20 participants).  I believe we can raise $5000 ourselves.  So that leaves $7000.
NWSS Cheer is very unique and very well respected already in its 3rd year.  Our captains become coaches.  We have created two high school teams to allow both entry level and advanced training.  We have also launched a sister program for children - where our high school athletes gain leadership skills and work experience as they coach  (Royal City Cheer & Tumbling Society).
Any help toward this goal is appreciated from the depths of our hearts.  Please contact me at your earliest convenience below.
