The senior varsity football season is over for the W.J. Mouat Hawks after falling 42-13 in the playoffs to the Mount Douglas Rams in Victoria on Friday (Nov. 12).

The Hawks opened the scoring with a touchdown drive led by Caden Martens, but after that score the Rams scored 42 consecutive points.

Mouat had no answer for Rams running back Miltiadis Koulelis, who scored four touchdowns. The Hawks did get a strong game from Martens, who scored two touchdowns and rushed for 112 yards. Austin Berry led the Mouat defense with 12 tackles and two sacks.

“Proud of our boys and the effort we put forth,” Mouat head coach Andrew Harder told the Varsity Letters website. “Mt. Douglas is a big, physical team that we struggled to play with when they got into their ‘heavy’ formations. We’re looking forward to the future of our Hawk program and the great group of guys we have in it.”

Meanwhile, the Robert Bateman Timberwolves closed off the regular season with a 34-29 win over West Vancouver on Friday.

Running back Micah Barker ran for 130 yards and two touchdowns and quarterback Nolan Watrin rushed for 54 yards and two touchdowns in the win. Taejshon Catlin also added a rushing major.

A.J. Nguyen and Dakota Kehler both collected a team-high four tackles. With the win, the Timberwolves finished the season at an impressive 7-1. They next host the John Barsby Bulldogs at Abbotsford Senior Secondary School’s Panther Field on Friday (Nov. 19) at 3 p.m.

After the team’s spectacular season, a number of Bateman players were recognized by B.C. high school football. Coastal Division AA all-stars include: Logan Thiessen (offensive line), Micah Barker (running back), Quan Michaels (defensive line), A.J. Nguyen (defensive back), Braden Tuchscherer (defensive back) and Nolan Watrin was named the co-winner of the most promising Grade 11 player award.
