‘Dawgs expect physical football game

Barsby’s AA varsity football team will take on Abbotsford Collegiate on Friday (Nov. 18) at the University of British Columbia.

The Barsby Bulldogs love to tackle, so this week’s playoff matchup suits them just fine.

John Barsby Community Secondary School’s AA varsity football team will take on Abbotsford Collegiate in the second round of the post-season on Friday (Nov. 18) at the University of British Columbia’s Thunderbird Stadium.

Barsby coach Rob Stevenson said Abby is a “super physical” team, and will have momentum, just like the ’Dawgs.

“The next team not only won the right to be in the playoffs, but they won a playoff game, so that’s a hot team,” Stevenson said.

The winner of Friday’s matchup advances to the provincial semifinals.

GAME ON … Barsby and Abbotsford Collegiate kick off at 3 p.m. on Friday. To read about the Bulldogs’ playoff win this past weekend, click here.
