Our Varsity travelled to play Seaquam HS on Saturday and came away with a dramatic 24-22 win over a great Seahawk squad. Well done Fellas!
JV's Versus Ballenas HS, Wednesday, 3 November at 3:01 PM
The Whaler File:
The Ballenas JV's throw the ball very well out of multiple formations and have an excellent draw-play. On the ground, Ballenas loves to pound the ball behind their outstanding offensive tackle and tight end. We can expect play-action pass off of just about every Whaler run play and of course, well developed screens. Ballenas will have trick-plays by the bushell so our defense needs to expect the unexpected from start to finish.
Defensively, the Whalers are tough up front with a fast flowing crew of linebackers. The defensive backfield is very disciplined and can play man and zone coverage equally well. Whaler special teams will feature fake kick-offs and fake punts. They run a good fake field goal as well.
Make no mistake, Ballenas is playing hard to win this one! We have to be our best.
Varsity vs Sands HS Friday, November 5th, 1:46 PM
Our Varsity squad will host the Sands Scorpions of North Delta this coming Friday in The Canem Cage. This game will represent the last game our Grade 12's will ever play on our home dirt. It is a special day for these young men and we aim to bring our best on to the field to support them!! Many of our 12's began playing flag football in grade 5/6 on our field and this is the closing act. A special day, a bitter-sweet special day.
The Sands File: Sands is HUGE and physical. This team loves smashmouth football and is very good passing the football off of play-action. The Scorpions have an arsenal of trick plays and use them well throughout the game.
Defensively, look for lots of Scorpion blitzes and a very good defensive line surge. This game will be PHYSICAL right out of the gates! Sands special teams are well coached and they will run a good reverse on their kick-return. The Sands kicking game is good in terms of depth and they do a very good job covering punts and kick-offs.
Bottom-Line: Barsby beware...this team almost beat AAA champion Centennial earlier this year and is now healthy. Sands is playing for a playoff spot on Friday. They will be motivated to say the least! We have to bring our A-Game!!
Parents: We need help with down-boxes and sticks as well as our field-take down post-game. Please lend a hand if you can.
