the team lost 15-22 they tackled hard and made tremendous progress in their new
Game two pitted the Sabres against a joint Dawson Creek/Fort. St. John team where
they captured their first ever victory by a 38-5 margin. The Sabres followed with
another win in a David vs. Goliath battle as they took on the joint G.P. Comp/Charles
Spencer team and won 24-10. They finished the season losing in the final seconds of
the game to St. Joseph’s 17-20.
The steadily improving athletes played hard in the playoffs, finishing out of the top three
but racking up countless compliments regarding their athleticism, hard hitting style of
play, and tremendous heart.
Season number one is done but the team welcomes anyone to come out next year.
The team will continue to build as they strive to earn a playoff championship of their own
