The Cloverdale Panthers capped their perfect season by defeating the Mission Niners 48-0 over the weekend in Langley to win the VMFL/VCFL championship.

Walker Erickson led the offense with three touchdowns. Harshaad Jouhal and Logan Walsh added one each while Himmat Aujla caught a pass from Jaeden Reid for the sixth major.

Terrel Jones was perfect on his extra points, including one from 15 yards away.  Taran Birdi, Nathan Sawyer and Gage Mack were all very strong on defense.

Last week the Panthers beat the North Surrey Lions 38-0 to become VMFL Champions.

Season highlights:

The Panthers were first in both the Maple Ridge and Cloverbowl pre-season tournaments, had a 10-0 record in regular season play, had a 5-0 playoff record and became the VMFL and provincial champions.

The team was led by dedicated coached. The athletes have put in five hours of practice each week since July. They are very focused and dedicated players, learning both offensive and defensive positions. They played well as a team, and had great attitudes, listening and learning. Sixteen different players scored touchdowns throughout the season. The team played strong from the first to the last day.
