Catholic schools knocked out

Football provincials go public

The St. Thomas More Knights and Vancouver College Fighting Irish both lost their high school provincial football semi-final games, making next week's final Catholic-free.

Both games took place on Saturday at UBC's Thunderbird Stadium.

Mt. Douglas Rams demolished the previously undefeated Knights 54-7, advancing the team to its first ever Subway Bowl Triple A final.

“That was the best football Mt. Douglas has ever played, in the history of Mt. Douglas football,” said Rams head coach Mark Townsend. “I would not have guessed that the score was going to be anything close to what it was. The theme of our week was ‘Whatever It Takes’ and we couldn’t have played a better game on on offence, defence or special teams.”

The W.J. Mouat Hawks had a more difficult time against the Fighting Irish, winning by a razor-thin 14-13 margin.

It was a tough defensive struggle but the No. 2-ranked Hawks edged out the No. 3-ranked Irish at Thunderbird Stadium. A missed extra-point convert by the Irish's Justin Sanvido with 5: 36 left in the fourth quarter turned out to be the difference, as the Hawks' defence managed to make one more stop late in the game to secure the win.
