The Duncan Dawgs won their second consecutive Western Canadian Flag Football Championship, blowing out the Vancouver Villains in the tournament finale on Sunday at Exhibition Park.
The defending champs from Vancouver Island rolled through the round robin with a perfect 3-0 record, winning by an average of 23 points per game. They capped the event with a 46-20 triumph over the Villains.
“No one really gave them a game – they really didn’t even get pushed,” tourney organizer Scott Beadell said, marveling at Duncan’s efficiency.
The lone Abbotsford squad in the field, the Fraser Valley Touch Football League All-Stars, failed to qualify for the playoffs after going 1-2 in pool play. They beat the Kelowna Browns 37-14, but close losses to the Vancouver King Cobras (33-26) and the Seattle Leny’s Bad Dogs (31-29) sealed their elimination.
The weekend event marked the third consecutive year that Beadell has staged the WCFFC in Abbotsford.
“In general, I thought it went really, really well,” he said. “It’s growing, and it got a lot of positive response throughout the city.”
