TERRY FOX 29 at CENTENNIAL 7
COQUITLAM — Ethan Elliott returned an interception 52 yards for a score, and teammate Zach Kristmanson did the same from 60 yards out, both in the fourth quarter, as Terry Fox (2-5) won the Coquitlam Cup with a rip-snortin’ defensive effort against its crosstown rivals, the Centennial Centaurs (0-7).
“We played a complete game tonight and it was really great for our seniors to win our crosstown rivalry game,” said Fox head coach Martin McDonnell. “This one always means a little more and our kids were ready to play tonight. We are excited to get another shot in the playoffs for sure, but we know it will be a great challenge for our team.”
The Ravens had six picks on the night, highlighted in a most uncommon way by the team’s field goal kicker.
Kyle Huish booted three through the uprights on special teams, then took his spot on defence and came away with two interceptions.
Alex Malcic had six tackles and an interception while Kristmanson also had three knockdowns.
Ravens’ quarterback Matt Lew Henrickson went 7-12 for 85 yards and Malcic also had 21-yard run for a major score.
Kayle Cowley scored the lone touchdown for the Centaurs on a 65-yard reception which eventually put them ahead 7-6 in the second quarter.
Brandon Wong with seven tackles and Zach Wawryk with six led the Centennial defence.
Cole Kashino carried 12 times for 43 yards, while also returning five kick-offs for 84 yards.

Rivalry games a tale of four teams

The Tri-Cities’ two high school senior football teams won’t have much more than civic pride on the line when they play their annual crosstown rivalry game Friday, 7 p.m., at Coquitlam’s Percy Perry Stadium.
The game concludes a regular season in which the Terry Fox Ravens and Centennial Centaurs have just one win between them.
The Ravens lost for the fifth time in six games, 36-0, to Kelowna, while Centennial remained winless after they fell 21-7 to St. Thomas More in a doubleheader of BC Secondary Schools Football Association games last Friday at Percy Perry.
The schools’ junior varsity teams will have more at stake when they play each other Thursday, 2 p.m., at Percy Perry.
Centennial and Fox each have two wins and a loss in three conference games. They’re tied for second place in the AAA East division, four points behind undefeated Lord Tweedsmuir.
The Centaurs defeated Abbotsford, 42-8, last Wednesday at Percy Perry Stadium, while the Ravens are coming off a 28-21 win over the New Westminster Hyacks last Thursday in New Westminster.

No. 5 ST. THOMAS MORE 21 AT CENTENNIAL 7
COQUITLAM — Rickey Parsons couldn’t have delivered better if it were happening in his dreams.
The reality of the situation, after the St. Thomas More Knights standout scored all three of his team’s touchdowns in the second-half, including two off pick-six thefts, is that the Knights will head into their Eastern Conference regular season finale against Lord Tweedsmuir next week with a chance to finish a perfect 7-0.
After running back Nick Osho had a pair of first-half rushing majors wiped off the board by penalties against an inspired Centennial defence on Friday at Burnaby Lakes, Parsons put his imprint on the game over its final two quarters.
First, he returned a 25-yard interception for a touchdown on Centennial’s first offensive series of the second half.
Then, on STM’s first series after the break, quarterback Anthony De Lazzari would hit Parsons with a 30-yard fade for the major score.
And then on Centennial’s ensuing drive, Parsons once again sizzled on defence, this time from midfield with a 50-yard pick-six play.
“The interceptions for touchdowns turned the tables on us,” admitted Centaurs head coach Dino Geremia. “We couldn’t fight back from it.”
Osho had 15 carries for 125 yards while De Lazzari was 7-of-14 for 80 yards passing and a touchdown.
Parsons added five tackles along a defence led by the eight of Alex Cordeiro. Jack Wagner had five tackles, while Kaishaun Carter had four.
Luca Iallanardo and Bryson Vanloo each added sacks.
For Centennial, Keyshawn Beswick had four receptions for 46 yards, and scored the Centaurs’ lone major in the fourth quarter.
Antonio Bianchi and Felipe Ruiz each made five tackles in the loss while Cole Kashino provided tough yards and had another big night on kickoff-return duty.
The Junior Varsity Centennial Centaurs fought back to beat the Vancouver College Fighting Irish on their home field for a fantastic victory.
The closely fought game came down to the last quarter where the Centennial varsity Centaurs let the game slip out of their grasp. The slick turf and the Centaurs inability to stop the bunch run formation made for a tough match.

MISSION — Matt Roadhouse had a career day at the Mission Sports Park, rushing for 196 yards and three touchdowns, all a part of the host Roadrunners’ 30-14 win over Coquitlam’s Centennial Centaurs.
Mission took the opening kick-off, and on a drive which lasted over a quarter, it culminated with Roadhouse’s first touchdown.
“Its nice to set the tone of the game with a super long drive and a score,” said Mission head coach Danny Jakobs.
At the end of the second half, with Centennial knocking on Mission’s goal line, Cody McMahon came up with a big sack, jarring the ball loose for a Roadrunners’ recovery.
Five plays later, Roadhouse exploded with a 60-yard scoring run to put Mission in front for good.
In addition to Roadhouse, fellow running back Saxon Kernahan gained 128 yards on 13 carries.
Defensively, Jaden Desrosiers led the way with six tackles and also chipped in with a three-yard rushing major. Cody McMahon had four tackles and a sack.
