GW Graham’s varsity football Grizzlies downed Pitt Meadows 21-7 and lost 21-14 to Mission in spring football friendlies last weekend.

The locals were led by quarterback Ryan Connelly and running back Brett Westad, both with two touchdowns.

Receiver Emerson Smith scored on a 37 yard TD toss from Terrell Sparvier,  and Trey Walsh also found the endzone.

Billy Hanson, Alex Bannerman and Tristan Davis provided rushing yards behind an outstanding offensive line led by Josh Mander and Elijah Schellenberg.

The Grizzlies defense was led by hard-hitting safety Ben Pretty and linebackers Kirk Kennedy and Tyler Sprott.

The defensive line, led by Diego Pineda and Braydon Winger, notched three sacks in the two mini-games.

“This varsity team is so deep at so many positions” noted coach Laurie Smith, “Our third and fourth QBs, running backs and receivers would start on most teams. It’s a very good problem to have.”

The Grizzlies next action is a five day team camp in Oregon in July where they will play top teams from Washington, Oregon and Idaho

Fall camp opens Aug. 18, ending with exhibition action against AAA Notre Dame.
