Playing for the first time in B.C. Place, the Nanaimo District Islanders were pretty much perfect, and became B.C. champions.
NDSS shut out the Barsby Bulldogs by a 23-0 score on Saturday in the AA junior varsity Subway Bowl title game.
“We definitely proved something,” said Finn Bradbrooke, NDSS quarterback and game MVP. “It felt amazing. Everyone’s feeling amazing.”
Clayton Hennessy, chosen the game’s best back, said he “couldn’t even process it” when time expired and his NDSS Islanders were champions.
“We came so far. We were the underdogs and we came out on top, beat Barsby. It’s something special.”
Hennessy said the Islanders played amazing and said he told his teammates to go 100 per cent every play.
