GW Graham Grizzlies handle Holy Cross in homecoming game

The football squad improved to 2-0 with a win over their rivals from Surrey.

The GW Graham senior varsity Grizzlies came out on homecoming weekend and ground out a 22-13 win over Surrey’s Holy Cross Crusaders.

The teams squared off last Friday under the lights at Exhibition Stadium.

The Grizzlies were hyped up after a good week of practice and came out flying against their rivals, opening the scoring on their first possession.

Running back Jaiden Claassen led the charge.

He carried 15 times in the game for 129 yards, adding one reception for 32 yards.

Energized by the electric atmosphere and energy radiating from the homecoming fans and school’s Pep Band led by Shane Monkman, the Grizzlies got things rolling in the third quarter.

Colton Holt took a three yard pass from quarterback Grayson Frick and turned it into a 60 yard touchdown.

Josh Caverly added a two point conversion to give GWG a 10 point lead, and Colby Bessette rounded out the scoring with a seven yard TD run.

Daniel King led the GWG defence with seven tackles while Colby Bessette and Brent Bilodeau had five tackles each. Bilodeau added a two point safety and a forced fumble in an impressive effort.

The Grizzlies (2-0) are home again tonight with a 7 p.m. kickoff against the Langley Saints (2-0) in a battle of the top two teams in the Eastern conference.
