In a narrow loss, the junior varsity Mission Secondary School Roadrunners failed to cement back-to-back provincial titles Saturday morning.

Facing off against the John Barsby Bulldogs, the same team they defeated last year for the AA championship, the Roadrunners were out to an early 14-0 lead heading late into the game.

While attempting to get into field goal range, the Roadrunners tried for eight straight passes, each one failing to connect with its intended receiver.

Touchdowns from Dejon Lynch and Nick Johnson and two two-point conversions gave Barsby a 16-14 halftime lead, and they extended the margin on a 62-yard TD run by Brandon Parker in the fourth quarter.

Mission answered with a touchdown of its own to make the score 22-20, then recovered an onside kick with two minutes left. It set up a pressure-packed ending.

More details to come.
