Huskies win provincial football title

Abbotsford middle school wins Grade 8 provincial crown

The Abbotsford Huskies celebrate a provincial title win on Monday.

The Abbotsford middle school Huskies are provincial champions.

The Huskies capped off a perfect season at Panther Field on Monday, beating the GW Graham Grizzlies 39-12 in the Grade 8 provincial championship game.

Running back Kevin Endozo had over 300 yards rushing and scored four touchdowns, while Karl von Einsendal caused multiple fumbles, and scored a touchdown off one.

The title is the second AA Grade 8 provincial crown for the school in the past three years. The Huskies put together an unblemished record of nine wins and zero losses over the regular season and playoffs, and outscored the opposition 348-18.

“A great team effort and team win,” stated the school’s athletic director and team teacher sponsor, Shawn Mani. “We had 28 dedicated players coming out to practices in the rain and cold. We had 28 kids who love football and want to get better every day and had coaches who wanted to pass on their love of the game as well.”

Mani said coach Brian Townrow and parent helper Robert Browning were both big factors in the team’s successful season.

“The recent successes of our program at the middle school is directly related to what is happening at Abby senior as all three teams are having very successful seasons,” he said. “The future continues to look bright for Abby football.”

The Panthers junior varsity team lost in the semi-finals, while the Panthers senior team battles for a provincial title at BC Place on Saturday.
