The race for the Subway Bowl has reached the quarter finals and three local Catholic schools are still in the running.

Tonight, the St. Thomas More Knights, ranked 5th in the Canada, face off against Coquitlam’s Centennial Centaurs.

Tomorrow, the Archbishops' Trophy champions Vancouver College Fighting Irish, ranked 13th in the nation, have a rematch against the Notre Dame Jugglers.

“In life you don’t often get a second chance at things, but we do,” Jugglers’ first-year head coach Richard Scott said of the rematch.

“The first time we played them, we had a chance at five big plays and we didn’t make the plays,” Scott told The Province's Howard Tsumura. “And you have to make big plays in big games. Our kids watched that (Vancouver College) film a million times and know the mistakes they made. They know the personnel they are going up against, and if they make the same mistakes, they are going to get the same result.”

At least one Catholic school is guaranteed to advance to the semi finals Nov. 26. The championship game takes place Dec. 3 at BC Place.

Will the Fighting Irish successfully defend their championship or will the Knights or Jugglers take home the trophy?

Nov. 18 – St. Thomas More vs Centennial – 8 p.m. at Thunderbird Stadium (UBC)

Nov. 19 – Van. College vs Notre Dame – Noon at Thunderbird Stadium (UBC)
