Towhees tackle Timberline in grid playoffs

Vanier finishes high school football regular season with impressive win

 

 

 

The G.P. Vanier Towhees put an exclamation mark on their BC High School Football Tier II Varsity regular season on Nov. 9, defeating E.J. Milne 48-12.

The team made the trek to Victoria and arrived at Bear Mountain Stadium to find a gorgeous day for football.

The win clinched second place for the Towhees, who return to action Saturday, Nov. 17 in Campbell River against the first-place Timberline Wolves in what a Towhee spokesperson termed “a very strange playoff situation.

“Typically football playoffs would have #1 taking on #4 (Timberline vs. Howe Sound) and #2 hosting #3 (G.P. Vanier vs. Frank Hurt). However in questionable fashion BC High School Football has placed the top two teams against each other to fight for the right to play in the championship game, to be held Nov. 24 at UBC Thunderbird Stadium.”

Last Friday in Victoria, Cody Fletcher (#32) continued his hard running, carrying the rock for 223 yards rushing and three TDS along with three kick returns for 95 yards.

He also added six points on convert attempts.  “His ability to shift direction and make cuts where there should be none continues to amaze our coaching staff,” the Towhee spokesperson said.

Mike Roller (#34) had a great game as well, racking up 39 yards in five carries with one TD. QB Liam Pidsosny (#12)  amassed 90 yards on seven carries and added two more TDs as well as a two-point convert.

Going to the air, his receivers caught for an additional 15 yards. Jimmy Brazier (#28), coming in after a late injury to Roller, had one carry for 10 yards.

Clayton Guille (#66) scored a TD off a fumble during a kick return, running the ball 25 yards to daylight.

Defensively the Towhees limited Milne to 12 points with major tackles from Guille, Roller, Callum Passingham (#71), Cody Cyr (#61), and Brazier. Rookie Wesley Yates took Milne down to the ground for three stops.

Tomorrow’s playoff tilt with Timberline should prove interesting. The Wolves went undefeated (6-0) in the regular season while the Towhees dropped their first game before winning the next five to finish at 5-1.

Vanier scored a league-best 219 points to Timberline’s third-best 160, and the Towhees allowed 98 points against to Timberline’s stingy 32.
