The H.D. Stafford Middle Schoolâ€™s Grade 8 football team just couldnâ€™t topple a team of Titans from Maple Ridge in the B.C. â€˜AAâ€™ championship game on Monday.
The Skyhawks from H.D. Stafford fell 40-0 to the Samuel Robertson Technical Secondary Titans at Burnaby Lakes Sports Field.
The final game was a rematch of an earlier meeting that saw the Titans suffer their one and only loss of the season.
It was a game that saw the Titans take the lead early and run with it.
The provincial championship victory was the first in SRT Football and school history.
SRT athletic director Lesley McPherson credited all of the hard work by players and coaches who were able to meet the many challenges that building this program required.
â€œSRT has always valued athletics and understood how integral it is to school culture,â€ said McPherson. â€œ Our kids and coaches… deserve this incredible accomplishment.â€
