JV Roadrunners defeat G.W. Graham 24-0

The Mission secondary football team hopes to make the provincial final for the fourth year in a row

Mission secondary’s junior varsity football program is facing the same challenge as their older “brothers.”

Continue to excel at the AA level and make the provincial championship final game again this year. The JVs have appeared in the final the past three years in a row, and coach John Kapty is eager to see history repeat itself.

“It looks like we’re in the mix this year,” he said.

Competition will be tougher than in past years, Kapty noted, as many of the other conference teams have put together strong squads.

“There’s no weeks off this year,” he remarked.

The JVs now sit at 2-1 for the season. The team took on G.W. Graham from Chilliwack last week, routing them 24-0, which pleased the coach.

“I think they’re going to be a pretty powerful team,” he said of the Chilliwack school, which just launched its football program this year.

The Roadrunners squeaked out a victory over the AAA W.J. Mouat Hawks Sept. 19, 33-32.

Leading the offense for the JVs will be quarterback Jesse Walker, who doubles as the starting receiver for the varsity team.

The Roadrunners were expected to play yesterday against Abbotsford Collegiate, and the next home game will be Oct. 11 at 3:15 p.m. against Rick Hansen.
