West Van 34 - WJ Mouat 23
ABBOTSFORD — After a few seasons of sticking with the program, the West Vancouver Highlanders are looking like one of the province’s most improved teams.
Quarterback Ben Corbett flashed his gridiron IQ throughout the evening, finishing 17-of-23 for 303 yards and four touchdowns as the injury-challenged Highlanders showed their resolve to grad a confidence-boosting road win over the Hawks.
“Mouat was big and strong offensively with incredible home run capability,” said West Van head coach Pooyah Dourandish. “They have athletes all over the field and we knew it would be a challenge to contain their misdirection run game. I am very proud of the guys we are playing simple fundamental football and it is paying off.”
Corbett’s two main targets thrived.
Nic Zen caught had 146 yards in receptions and three touchdowns while Ethan Johnston had 93 yards and one score.
A Highlanders’ defence led by Ryerson Wallace (eight tackles, one sack) and Connor Chapman (three tackles, two sacks) caught the eye of Mouat head coach Travis Bell.
“Our offense really struggled in the first half after our defense gave us some great stops, and credit West Van for putting a good defensive scheme in place,” said Bell. “We were always in it, but when we needed to score after a stop we didn’t, and when we needed a stop after a score, it just didn’t happen.
“That being said, we also made too many mental errors if we are to give ourselves a chance to compete in the (Triple A) East. There were lots of positives to build on and I’m hopeful we can clean up the sloppy stuff with some more games under their belt.” ~ courtesy of Howard Tsumura at www.varsityletters.ca
