The GW Graham football program had hoped to win two provincial championship banners this fall.

Instead, it comes away empty handed after the senior and Grade 8 teams went down to defeat.

The senior varsity squad fell 24-21 to the Carson Graham Eagles in a Saturday afternoon semi-final at BC Place Stadium.

The Grizzlies nearly rallied from a 21-7 deficit, driving the ball inside the Carson Graham 30 with less than a minute to do.

But an incomplete pass on fourth and long sent the Eagles on to the provincial final against Chase Claypool and Abby Collegiate.

Claypool’s school handed GWG’s Grade 8 team a 39-12 loss in Monday afternoon’s AA provincial final at Abby Collegiate.
