Lord Tweedsmuir reaches final four in provincial playoffs

A very successful high school football season came to an end for the Lord Tweedsmuir Panthers Saturday night at the University of British Columbia.

The Panthers played in their first-ever provincial semifinal in the Senior AAA category, losing 39-33 to the Mt. Douglas Rams. Tweedsmuir went 6-1 (won-lost) in league play, before winning one of two playoff games.

Against the unbeaten Rams, the Panthers scored 33 points against a defense that allowed just 27 in six league games.

Three members of the Lord Tweedsmuir team made the provincial all-star team. Running back Jamel Lyles and defensive linemen Austin Thornton and Reece Russell were selected as all-stars.

In the Senior AA category, two players from the Holy Cross Crusaders were honured. Named to the all-star team were defensive lineman Johnathon Kongbo and linebacker Lucas Ciampelletti.
