It was a good game and the score doesn't do the West vancouver JV Highlanders justice as they played great against a very very good Belmont Bulldog football team
Coach Currie said the JV Highlanders came ready to play in this one. Swapping scores on each of their opening drives. Belmont ended up going up 21-6 late in the first half. The JV Highlanders answered back before the end of the first half with their second touchdown of the day and a 2 point conversion to end the 1st half only down 21-14.
The JV Highlanders put Belmont under pressure in the 2nd half forcing a fumble which for some reason got overturned to "intentional grounding" and Belmont regained their composure to score two plays later.
West Van had an impressive drive late in the game to march from one end of the field to another, but unfortunately ended up fumbling and turning the ball over at the Belmont 5 yard line.
The final score was 35-14, but this game easily could and should have been 28-21 or even 21-21 had the JV Highlanders had a few events go in their favour or a little luck.
Coach Currie is proud of the team and states it was their best game as a unit they have played all year. The team has lots to build on from this game.
