AA Varsity Game Of The Week



GI's Picks


Correlieu @ College Heights: Looks like College Heights is playing the second best football in the Northern Division.  Correlieu is not of the same calibre.  GI's Pick: College Heights by 27


Carson Graham @ John Barsby: Friday begins with a huge game out West between undefeated Carson and once bitten Barsby.  The Eagles have been scoring in bunches on the ground with their province leading rusher and via the air with a talented qb/set of receivers.  Up front they are tough and athletic.  They will be looking at themselves in the mirror when Barsby lines up across from them as the rosters are very similar.  Barsby's defense is a tough nut to crack so this one will likely be close throughout.  Special teams, turnovers and penalties will weigh heavily on the outcome of this tilt.  GI's Pick: Barsby by 6

Ballenas @ Argyle: Ballenas laid a big score on visiting Frank Hurt this Saturday.  Argyle got pummelled by Carson Graham.  Look for more of the same from both teams. GI's Pick: Ballenas by 31

Holy Cross @ Sprectrum: Spectrum is making strides but not big enough to tangle with Holy Cross and their zaney jet sweep run game.  The HC defense has also been playing some statement games of late. GI's Pick: Crusaders by 39

Langley @ Robert Bateman: Langley is much improved over last year's version.  Unfortunately for the Saints, Bateman is having a similar improved year and is really running the ball hard. GI's Pick: Bateman by 22

Sentinel @ Windsor: This used to be one of the great rivalries on the North Shore.  Windsor is presently better than the Spartans in every phase of the game.  Look for a big score in this one for Windsor and a goose egg on the board for Sentinel. GI's Pick: Dukes by 40

Vernon @ Valleyview: Great match-up here!  These are clearly the two best teams in the interior with the underdog betwixt the two hosting.  I think Valleyview will score some points in this one for sure with their pistol offense.  Vernon hasn't broken a sweat yet this season.  GI's Pick: Vernon by 11

Nechako Valley @ Kelley Road: This will be entertaining.  The Roadrunners possess the size and speed in this contest and this will add up to a W for the Northenders.  GI's Pick: Kelley Road by 14

Mt. Baker @ Salmon Arm: Salmon Arm needs this game bad and will milk the contest for all it is worth.  GI's Pick: Golds by 28

South Delta @ Hugh Boyd: Well, Hugh Boyd laid a pretty good smacking on Spectrum this past Thursday.  Now the role will be reversed as the Sundevils will be flat out overpowering defensively and will score points a plenty when they have the ball in their hands. GI's Pick: South Delta by 31

Duchess Park @ Prince George: Good night PG.  Better times are ahead in 2014.  GI's Pick: Duchess by 36

Abbottsford @ Samuel Roberts Technical: Abbottsford will get another quality win this week when they tangle with SRT.  GI's Pick: Panthers by 22

Clarence Fulton @ Westsyde: The Maroons ought to place third in their division this year.  Westsyde will be another step in that ascent. GI's Pick: Fulton by 28


Rick Hansen @ Mission: We've all been waiting for this one!  I am picking an upset.  Mission got gassed and wound up in a tough scrape with GW Graham last Friday night.  Now the Roadrunners play a balanced offense, a defense that can match up in the trenches and a team with a deeper bench.  GI's Pick: Hansen by 7
