Chilliwack football stars make mark with Team B.C.

The team results weren’t what they wanted, but Logan Buchwitz and Dhillon Myers impressed in Edmonton

Chilliwack’s Logan Buchwitz had a productive time at last week’s U-16 Western Challenge Football tournament, but Team B.C. came out of the four-team tournament without a win.

The U-16 squad joined Team Alberta, Team Saskatchewan and Team Manitoba at Foote Field in Edmonton.

Buchwitz and fellow Chilliwackian Dhillon Myers played two games each for Team B.C., starting last Wednesday with a 21-16 loss to Team Alberta.

Buchwitz had three catches for 72 yards in the defeat, including a long gain of 61 yards. He also carried the ball twice for 10 yards.

Myers did his thing in the trenches. Lining up as a defensive lineman, he recorded two tackles.

While Team Alberta moved on to face Team Manitoba in the tournament’s gold medal game, Team B.C. was left to face Team Saskatchewan in a consolation match. Myers recorded another tackle in a 17-9 loss.

Buchwitz continued to post numbers on offence, catching six passes for 86 yards and carrying the ball nine times for 28 yards.

He also added a special teams tackle.
