Grizzles grind out win over SkyHawks

GW Graham's Grade 8 football team slogged through rain and muck to edge the HD Stafford SkyHawks in football action.

GW Graham’s Grade 8 Grizzlies football team came up with a hard fought 14-2 victory over a tough and well coached HD Stafford team  (Langley), improving their record to 3-1. The win puts the Grizzlies second in the province in the Grade 8 AA division.

Playing in driving rain and otherwise miserable conditions, the GWG offence stuck to the ground game.

Ethan Mastin and Spencer Breslin both got rushing touchdowns.

Gabe Mannes and Wyatt Uzick also ripped off long runs behind the tremendous blocking of Michael Lengert, Jake Troyan and Devan Voss.

Thanks to their experienced center Gibson Hardie, the Grizzlies managed to avoid the snap-exchange issues that plagued HD Stafford.

On defense, linebackers Miguel Wood and Dakota Mathers led the way with several tackles each.

Jaren Lengert had an outstanding game at defensive tackle while cornerback Owen Eyres shut down the outside run.

GWG’s next game is at Mission Monday afternoon.
