Stafford falls in finals

The H.D. Stafford Skyhawks fell short in their quest for a second consecutive tier II provincial football championship.

The Grade 8 team lost 6-0 in a hard-fought defensive battle to the Holy Cross Crusaders on Saturday at UBC’s Thunderbird Stadium.

The Crusaders scored the only touchdown of the game on a short run in the first half. The second half saw the rainy weather force both teams to abandon the passing attack and try to churn out yardage along the ground.

The wet weather made for slippery conditions as both teams had problems holding on to the ball.

Stafford’s last chance to tie the game came late but the team came up short on a fourth and short situation.
