Mission Secondary Roadrunners junior football squad blanks Bateman

Senior, junior football teams continue exhibition schedule

The Mission Roadrunners junior varsity football team opened the exhibition schedule in a big way on Sept. 5.

Mission disposed of the Robert Bateman Timberwolves 36-0 in a dominant performance at Mission Secondary field.

The Roadrunners continued the exhibition schedule on Thursday against the G.W. Graham Grizzlies, but results were not available at press time. The exhibition run concludes on Sept. 20 against the Mount Douglas Rams, with the regular season opening on Sept. 26 when Mission travels to North Delta to take on the Seaquam Seahawks. The juniors will be competing in the AAA Pacific division, battling for a playoff spot against Centennial, Earl Marriott, Nanaimo District, Spectrum, Sullivan Heights, W.J. Mouat and West Vancouver.

The seniors opened the exhibition schedule with a 7-6 loss to Langley at home on Sept. 7.

The club next travels to Meridian, Wash., for an exhibition game tonight (Friday), and then open the regular season at home against the Abbotsford Panthers on Sept. 21. That game kicks off at 3 p.m.

Mission closes the month with a road trip to Kelowna to battle the Mt. Boucherie Bears.
