Flag footballers pursue provincial crown

Chilliwack sent a flag football squad to Kelowna and BC Flag Football Provincials.

After a successful 2015 season, Chilliwack’s flag football ‘Team Parks’ traveled to Kelowna last weekend for provincials.

Seeded 10th in the field, the Chilliwackians went 2-1-1 in the round-robin with a plus-21 points for/against ratio.

A 30-0 win over Richmond got them into the Sweet 16 where they fell 6-0 in heartbreaking fashion to Coquitlam — their opponents got the winning points in the game’s final minute.

Chilliwack bounced back to beat North Surrey 37-6 in their final game.

The team MVP award went to running back Carter Dallas, an offensive leader along with quarterback Christian Beck, receiver Aiden Hewitt and six year old Rylan Parks.

Gavin Parks, Cameron Head, Lucas Pollard, Owen Vanderhoek and Pierson Capstick were defensive standouts.
