Abbotsford Falcons win Gold at 2018 BC Football Championship

Falcons won 12 straight season games including the provincial title

The Abbotsford Falcons Peewee Black won the provincial title this past Sunday at Percy Perry Stadium in Coquitlam over the South Side Dawgs from Vancouver Island.

This year the Dawgs had a bye to the big game wile the Falcons had to play a semi-final game against the Champion of the VMFL, the North Surrey Cardinals.

The Falcons, representing the VCFL, won the coin toss to start the game, this high octane offense got right on the game to score their first touchdown of the game, followed by an outstanding defense that just allowed one first down to the Dawgs team.

All game long, the Falcons offense worked like they had all season, scoring in all but one of their times to the ball, leading to the final score of the game, 46-0.

The players who scored on this game were Elija Black and Joel Muller with one TD each from Jaden Sharma and Rielly Mcdonald, with two td’s each, plus five kick two point conversions for Jaden Sharma.

All this wouldn’t be possible with out the offensive line and block from the receivers too.

The defense’s show of speed and response to the ball carrier made it impossible in the running game for the Islanders.

Abbotsford brought big crowds to cheer them up between trumpets, air horns and even an Indian drum, called a dhol. Loud cheering from the parents and friends that created a great atmosphere.

Sunday’s game against Nanaimo was the culmination of the hours put in. The Falcons’ organization was proud to watch the sportsmanship demonstrated by both teams as players on both squads helped each other get up off the field after a good tackle or block. Also the helmet slaps as the players passed each other lining up.

The Falcons won 12 straight games including the provincial title.
