The Lord Tweedsmuir Panthers raced to an easy victory Nov. 8 with a win over the W.J. Mouat Hawks 57-7.

“We got a lot of contributions from lots of different kids today,” said Lord Tweedsmuir head coach Kurt Thornton.

LT opened the scoring when running back Noah Anderson darted in from 12 yards for a TD. LT’s defensive followed up on the next drive with a pick-6 to put the Panthers up 14-0 and they never looked back.

The Panthers face the New Westminster Hyacks (5-2) in the 2019 Subway Bowl quarterfinal round Saturday, Nov. 16 at B.C. Place. Kick off is 12 p.m.

The Panthers downed New West 15-6 in an exhibition game in September. Both teams played Terry Fox this year with LT winning 27-0 and the Hyacks winning 45-6.

“Tickets will be available at LTS office at a discounted rate of $10,” added Thornton.
