Bill Moore Park, Courtenay, BC
Week 3 of the regular season continues with our JV’s travelling up the road to play the G.P. Vanier Towhees under the lights at Bill Moore Park in Courtenay. The drive is approx 1 hour in duration and there is bleacher seating and a concession for spectators. We are encouraging all parents, friends and supporters of the program to wear red and come support our JV squad. We are looking forward to a great evening of ball and a lot of fun on and off of the field this coming Wednesday night! When at games please remember to cheer for your squad and not against the other squad. Sportsmanship is big on and off of the field of play.
The Tale Of The Tape
Record: John Barsby 1-1 G.P. Vanier 0-1
Vanier Colours: Forest Green, Silver and White.
School Size: Number of Boys G. 11/12: Barsby 158 G.P. Vanier 337
Size Advantage: G.P. Vanier
Speed Advantage: Draw
Team Quickness: John Barsby
What we know about GP. Vanier: These guys like to play a very physical brand of football and have a very strong running game offensively. Vanier has a reputation for being tough ball players and we have to step-up to the plate to play ball with them. Playing at home, they will come out very intense and we can take nothing for granted in any phase of the game versus this squad.
Last week vs they: Had a bye.
