Week three saw Barsby dismantle a chewed-up Carson Graham squad while Robert Bateman did much the same in blanking the Hugh Boyd Trojans by a lopsided score. South Delta continued to put big points on the board and Ballenas transitioned into what it is truly capeable of after a slow start vs Windsor. Mission played AAA Centennial close and though short benched and nicked-up, gave em all they could handle with the return of qb Kevin Weins. Its on to league play from here on out.
Teams gaining traction: The Handsworth Royals have been playing some good competition the past couple of weeks and it is becoming evident that defense is a huge priority for the North Shore squad. When Handsworth has played good defense, they have historically fared well deep into the playoffs. Nanaimo District was impressive en-route to a 30 plus point win on Friday afternoon as well and are off to play the Pitt Meadows Marauders this coming weekend in a statement game for both programs. Seaquam posted another W on the running of Mark Lego. Will be interesting to see whether this crew can succeed if their uber-back gets slowed down by somebody. In the Interior Kalmalka looks to be one of the teams to beat along with Valleyview. In the North, the sons of Vanderhoof are positioning themselves as the team to beat in 2012.

GI's Picks Week 4
Tuesday, 25 September
Friday, 28 September
Hugh Boyd @ South Delta: Out of the pot and into the fire. The Trojans are transitioning from a tough road trip vs valley powerhouse Bateman to a divisional road game vs red-hot South Delta. The Trojans usually play very good in big games and Coach Haddow will have his boys prepped. Problem for Troy is that their are physical limitations to prepping for size, speed and team quickness all of which the South Delta crew possesses in copious amounts. GI's Pick: South Delta by 22
