Falcons junior bantams gearing up for B.C. championship game

The Abbotsford Falcons Black junior bantam team blew out Kelowna in the provincial semifinals.

Back in the fall, Luis Garcia took stock of the talent on the Abbotsford Falcons junior bantam Black football team’s roster, saw provincial championship potential, and told his players so.

They’ve proven him right all season long, and they have a chance to take the last step on Sunday when they face the South Delta Rams in the B.C. Community Football Association championship game. Kickoff is 11:30 a.m. at Langley’s McLeod Athletic Park.

“When they apply themselves 100 per cent, they’re unstoppable,” head coach Garcia said of his squad. “I expect a good battle (against South Delta).”

The undefeated Falcons punched their ticket to the final with a dominant 68-16 road victory over the Kelowna Lions on Saturday. Samwel Uko scored a trio of touchdowns in the win, while Tyson Reid and Sachi Peterson notched two apiece.

“We played a perfect team game,” said Garcia, whose team had beaten North Langley 48-21 in the Valley Community Football League final the previous week. “They were right on top of their game, all of them.”
