Abbotsford Falcons Peewee Black repeat as provincial champs

Abbotsford football club wins second straight provincial title, blank Coquitlam 20-0 in final

After a scoreless opening quarter, Falcons quarterback Elijah Black threw a 35-yard pass to Phoenix Trolland to get to the one-yard line. Black called his own number to put Abbotsford up 6-0, and the first half ended with the Falcons hanging onto that same lead.

The second half saw the Falcons take control of the game, and Black scored again with a 15-yard run to make it 12-0 after three. Falcons running back Santiago Llarena then scored the last major on a 10-yard run, followed by a successful two- point conversion.

The peewees went a perfect 8-0 during the regular season and outscored the opposition 272-54 in those games. The team also collected four shutouts during the season. The Peewee Blacks won the Valley Community Football League title back in November by beating the Abbotsford White Falcons.

Bob Dawit of the Falcons said it was another good year for the team, and this is a special group of players.

“The core of this team has won four out of the last five VCFL titles and now have their second provincial title,” he stated.

“The defence played a very large role in this year’s championship. After all, offences win games and defences win championships, they say. A very well-balanced, talented offence made up of a good offensive line, great running backs and receivers and, in the driver’s seat, an experienced quarterback. On defence, we have an unstoppable line with quick linebackers and good defensives backs.”

The peewees’ win comes just a few weeks after the Abbotsford Falcons Atom Black squad also won a provincial title on Nov. 16.

The 2019 provincial title also comes on the heels of the peewees winning a provincial title in 2018.
