Both teams ended up wet, but only one group ended up winners.
The Barsby Bulldogs dominated the Hugh Boyd Trojans by a 40-6 score to open the junior varsity football post-season on a rainy Thursday evening at Merle Logan Field.
“I think the weather helped us. We’re a grind it out team…” said Matt Heinrichs, coach of Barsby’s JVs. “I was really happy with [our] effort. I thought our best week of practice reflected with our best game. They’re really coming together as a team, starting to jell as a team and that shows on the field.”
Seamus Irwin led the Bulldogs with two touchdowns and Jacub Gillman, Zachary Taylor, Colin Nutting and Ethan Laing also scored TDs.
“I think it’s going to give us a good boost of momentum,” Heinrichs said. “Our motto is get better. We did get better this week.”
GAME ON … The Bulldogs juniors will continue the playoffs against the Abbotsford Panthers on Thursday (Nov. 19) in the Fraser Valley.
