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.
