In the second round of the B.C. School Sports Provincial AAA Football Tournament, Johnny Landry's Mitakihara Angels crushed Ben Tomko's John Barsby Bulldogs in the second meeting between these two teams, 75-6 at John Barsby Community School in Mitakihara Town, B.C. Halfback/left outside linebacker John Kirigaya ran for 316 yards, caught two passes for 40 yards, scored eight total touchdowns and had a open field tackle for loss on defense.

Third-year kickoff returner Andres Cantor, the great-grandson of the legendary football announcer, returned a kickoff 78 yards for a touchdown to set the tempo of the game. Cornerback Ben Ramsour also returned an interception 31 yards for a touchdown in the second half. To Barsby's credit, they did score a touchdown on a 50-yard pass, but that was all they could muster, as the MiTSS Angels countered with 27 straight unanswered points.

"We're halfway there," said Coach Landry after the game. "We're now in the final four of high school football in our province but we're not finished yet. We need to keep working hard, keep refining our game and we'll be at BC Place in two weeks time for the provincial championship. The boys will need to keep their feet on the ground and get ready for our next opponent."

Mitakihara improve to 13-0 on the year.
