Roadrunners battling South Delta in playoffs

Mission squares off against Sun Devils in Abbotsford today

The Mission Roadrunners senior varsity football team narrowly fell to the second-ranked team in the AAA, and are now set to open the playoffs this afternoon (Friday).

The Roadrunners led for much of the game against the St. Thomas More Knights on Friday, holding a 16-0 advantage after the first quarter and a 22-8 lead at halftime, but couldn’t hold on as the Knights came back to win 30-22.

Mission finished the regular season in fourth place in the AAA’s Western conference at 4-3.

The club moves onto the first round of the playoffs, and will take on the South Delta Sun Devils today at 1:30 p.m. at Latham Field in Abbotsford.

The Sun Devils finished in fifth place in the AAA’s Western conference also with a 4-3 record.

The winner of the Mission vs. South Delta game takes on the undefeated Lord Tweedsmuir Panthers next week.

The Roadrunners lost 28-0 to the Panthers back on Oct. 26.

The Roadrunners junior varsity football team also lost to the Knights, falling 30-0 in Burnaby on Nov. 1.

That loss dropped Mission’s record to 1-3, and also eliminated the club from the playoffs.
