2013 Semi-Final Edition

2013 BC AA Varsity Semi-Final

GI's Picks

Carson Graham @ South Delta: This is going to be a terrific game.  Both squads are big, fast, deep and loaded with talent at every position.  The respective defensive coordinators have raised the trading stock price of Pepto-Bismol by a factor of three as soon as it became clear who they were facing.  I think the team that limits the most explosive plays that are run against it will triumph.  The Carson running back will garner a lot of attention and the South Delta receivers will have to be on their A-Game for sure. GI's Pick: South Delta by 6

Mission @ John Barsby: This will be an all out dust-up between two very disimilar yet familiar teams.  Mission holds an edge in terms of top end speed. but Barsby is bigger and has a bit more depth than their opponents.  Defense and limiting turnovers will win this game, hands down. GI's Pick: Barsby by 3

AA Junior Varsity Semi-Finals

Ballenas @ Vernon:  Ballenas has had its toughest games against teams that are patient and run, run, run the ball.  Vernon has not played the calibre of competition that Ballenas has week in and week out.  This game will be very close for two and a half quarters before the Whalers pull away. GI's Pick: Whalers by 14

Argyle @ GW Graham: This game matches two programs that were not even in existence three seasons ago.  A battle of up and comers for sure!  Both teams can throw the ball very well.  Argyle is going to have to play its A-Game vs the pass in order to compete.  Graham has the edge in size. GI's Pick: Grizzlies by 12
