The dream of a 2018 provincial football title is alive for Surrey’s Holy Cross Crusaders.
On the line is a trip to the division’s Subway Bowl championship game, which is set for the following Saturday.
To get to the B.C. High School Football semi-final, Holy Cross crushed a Prince George team 47-6 last weekend.

The Conrad Deugau-coached Crusaders were last-place finishers a year ago, but have rebounded big-time. Standout players for Holy Cross this season have included Finn Urqhart, Matt Fraser, Jack Laurin, Andrew Hunt, Silas Marchan and Uyi Ologhola.
In other action, at the triple-A level, the top-ranked Lord Tweedsmuir team of Cloverdale fell in a quarter-final game Saturday to New Westminster, 34-16.
Tweedsmuir’s junior varsity team remains in the playoff hunt, however, following a 7-3 quarter-final win over Mt. Douglas at Cloverdale Athletic Park on Nov. 15. The triple-A Panthers will play a semi-final game against Kelowna on Thursday (Nov. 22, 2 p.m.) at W.J. Mouat’s field in Abbotsford; the winner will get to play at B.C. Place during Subway Bowl finals day, Dec. 1.
