It’s a double championship contention year for the Mt. Douglas Rams as they take on the New Westminster Hyacks in the Junior Varsity AAA championship only five hours before they play the Senior Varsity AAA final against Vancouver College under the safe roof.
In their semi-final game last week, the Rams beat Lord Tweedsmuir 26-14. The JV team will feature grade 9 standout Gideone Kremler at quarterback. Kremler just happens to also be the starting quarterback for the Rams’ Senior Varsity team meaning it will be quite a busy day for the youngster. This season, the JV Rams went 2-2 and ranked third in the JV AAA West division, and scored 122 points while only allowing 60 points, which was the second lowest for points against for all JV AAA teams. The last time the Rams made it to the JV AAA final was back in 2011, where they lost to St. Thomas More after winning the championship the previous year.
The Hyacks, meanwhile, defeated Seaquam 66-38 last week to earn their spot in the Final. This season, the Hyacks went undefeated in the JV AAA West division in four games and finished above the Rams, who finished third in the conference. In four games, the Hyacks put 160 points on the board but also let 97 points against them. The Hyacks ranked highest in all JV AAA teams in the amount of points they scored during the regular season. This also marks the Hyacks’ first ever appearance in the Junior Varsity AAA final, and they’ll look to make it count.
In a matchup of a strong offensive team in the Hyacks and a strong defensive team in the Rams, which team will come out victorious? Find out on Saturday!
