Trio of teams eliminated

Season ends for Seaquam, Lord Tweedsmuir and Holy Cross

The provincial playoffs lasted just one game for three local high school football teams.

In a Senior AAA playoff game, the Lord Tweedsmuir Panthers were eliminated 41-14 by the Vancouver College Fighting Irish on Friday night.

Two teams competing in the Senior AA playoff tournament also had their season come to an end Friday in Nanaimo, as both the Seaquam Seahawks and Holy Cross Crusaders suffered first round defeats.

The Crusaders fell 57-14 to the John Barsby Bulldogs, while Seaquam went down 63-35 to the Ballenas Whalers of Parksville.

“Usually, you score that many you win,” said Seaquam head coach Jerry Mulliss. “But the Ballenas offense was amazing.”

Mark Lego ran for three touchdowns for the Seahawks, while Lee Lai and Gabe Pamintuan each caught touchdown passes.
