Week 6: High School Football in British Columbia Heats Up

The high school football season in British Columbia is in full swing, with week 6 providing fans with some thrilling action. Teams are jostling for positions in their respective standings, with each game carrying significant weight. The players are giving it their all as they aim to represent their schools in the playoffs. 

In this article, we will take a look at the highlights of week 6, the shifts in the standings, and what we can expect in the upcoming games.

AA standings have witnessed a slight shift in the latter half, with South Kamloops surpassing Westsyde before their Friday night game at the Hillside Stadium in Kamloops, B.C.

South Kamloops’ special teams played a remarkable role in their 53-0 victory over Pleasant Valley, leading to 257 kick return yards by Mason Lougheed with two touchdowns. With their confidence high, the Titans must be prepared for their upcoming game against the Westsyde Blue Wave, who are seeking to avenge their only loss against Vernon.

In AAA standings, teams are striving to catch up with the top three programs in Vancouver College, Carson Graham, and G.W. Graham, respectively.

St. Thomas More has moved up to fourth place from last week after winning a close 35-28 battle with Centennial. It took a second-half push from the Knights to pull away with three straight touchdowns leading to the Centaurs’ defeat.

New Westminster is just a step behind the Knights, climbing up to the fifth spot. The team’s recent victory against South Delta with a score of 21-20 was a real nail-biter. Tyson Godspower’s impressive offensive performance and Markus Savela’s strong defence were crucial to the Hyacks’ success. The boys played with such passion, as they knew that the Kushnir Boot was at stake. The team’s next challenge is to face the Seaquam Seahawks this coming Friday, and the Hyacks will have to put up a great defensive performance to keep their winning momentum going.

The Seahawks had a dominant performance against the Terry Fox Ravens, winning 42-14. Seaquam has now won two games in a row since their defeat in the season opener against Lord Tweedsmuir, and they have the chance to put together a third win by topping the Hyacks in the rankings.

Lord Tweedsmuir made a comeback against W.J. Mouat with a 48-15 victory over the Hawks. Jaxon Allen was impressive on both ends of the ball yet again with four touchdowns, three tackles, and a sack. The Panthers now await Mt. Boucherie for Friday’s BCSS Game of the Week.

Kelowna and South Delta have broken into the top ten. KSS put away Rutland 20-0, knocking the Voodoo outside of the top ten. South Delta, despite a tough loss to New Westminster, is now in the tenth position. The Sun Devils have played better than their record suggests and are always a challenge for any team in the AAA division.

Week 6 has been an exciting week of high school football in British Columbia, with several teams making significant progress in the standings. The players have shown their skills, and the fans have had some fantastic moments to cheer for. As we look forward to the upcoming games, we can expect more action-packed games as the teams battle it out for a chance to represent their schools in the playoffs. 

We wish all the teams the best of luck in their upcoming games, and we will be here to cover the highlights of the next week of high school football in British Columbia.
