Chilliwack’s midget football Giants got a late touchdown and held on for a 28-21 win over the Coquitlam Falcons last weekend.
The Giants (6-3) came into the game as underdogs against their 8-1 foes, but opened the scoring on an eight yard Cam Lampart scramble.
The Falcons led 14-6 at half-time, but the Giants ground game found traction coming out of the break.
Lampart, Brett Westad and Nashon Douglas took turns gashing the Falcon D.
Quarterback Jordan Fox went to the air for the second Chilliwack touchdown, hooking up with Marius Anghel, and a two point convert tied the game.
A big run from Colton Derouin, set up by a crushing Lampart block, set up a go-ahead score that put Chilliwack up 21-14.
Coquitlam came back to tie, setting the stage for Chilliwack’s game winning drive.
The Giants open the playoffs against the Langley Stampeders on Sunday.
