Pitt Meadows Marauders ground Grizzlies

The Eastern conference of AA varsity football is shaping up to be a murderer's row, evidenced by last Friday's GW Graham game.

GW Graham’s varsity football squad fell to 2-2 with a tough road loss last Friday.

The Grizzlies traveled to Pitt Meadows to take on the Marauders, losing by a single point, 27-26.

“It was a tough hard fought game by both teams,” said GWG head coach Laurie Smith. “The Eastern conference really has four or five top-10 teams, and every game is a battle.”

GWG running back Brett Westad posted his fourth straight 100 yard game, rolling up 144 yards and three touchdowns on 23 carries (6.26 yards per carry).

Wideout Treyvon Walsh caught five Terrell Sparvier passes for 111 yards and a major. Sparvier completed 13 of 26 passes, but also threw three interceptions.

Kirkland Kennedy led a swarming Grizzly defence with six-and-a-half solo tackles.

Linebacker Cainen Bergh added five tackles, with Grade 10 end Jaren Lengert recording a quarterback sack.

The Grizzlies are home Friday night for a date with the Mission Roadrunners (7:30 p.m.)
