Mouat Hawks win in Kelowna

Football club keep playoff hopes alive with victory in Kelowna

The Mouat Hawks senior varsity football posted a huge win in Kelowna on Friday to keep their playoff hopes alive.

The W.J. Mouat Hawks transformed into road warriors at the most opportune time.

The Hawks travelled to Kelowna to take on Mt. Boucherie on Friday, and edged the Bears 36-35 to keep their playoff hopes alive.

Mouat running back Nelson Lokombo had a monster game, rushing for 250 yards and scoring three touchdowns. He also caught one touchdown pass. Wide receiver Balraj Mangat also caught a touchdown for the Hawks.

Defensive back Eddie Escobal recorded a team-high nine tackles, with linebacker Robert Bradley adding eight of his own.

The win keeps Mouat in the playoff hunt in the AAA eastern conference, as they are tied for fourth with a record of two wins and three losses.

They next travel to Mission to take on the Roadrunners on Saturday at 1:30 p.m.

Over in Surrey, the Robert Bateman Timberwolves were blanked for the second time this season, falling 20-0 to the Holy Cross Crusaders on Saturday.

Bateman’s offence couldn’t get going, and penalties and other mental mistakes hurt the team.

The Timberwolves remain winless in AA regular-season action, with zero wins in three games. Bateman takes on Langley Secondary at McLeod Athletic Park on Friday at 7 p.m.

The Abbotsford Panthers, who remain atop the AAA’s Pacific division, were on a bye week, but take on Rutland Secondary in Kelowna on Friday.
