It will be an all-Coquitlam junior bantam Lower Mainland Football League final this weekend, after both the Coquitlam Vikings and Coquitlam Raiders won their semi-final games.
The Vikings took the lead on Nic Greene's punt return in the first quarter and added a handful of scores in the second half to blast North Surrey 32-0.
Moe Hassan and Cam Shahrabi-Doust also scored touchdowns, while Quincy Cultess and Brendon Dieno added point-after kicks.
Racking up fumble recoveries were Keon Fuoco and Dieno, with Greene pulling down an interception.
Delivering a good number of tackles were Joseph Bianchi and Mitch Bye. On offence, Xavion Fleary and Hassan piled up the yards, while quarterback Max Kennedy connected with his receivers on two successful passes.
The Raiders, meanwhile, edged the South Delta Rams 17-16 to advance to the final.
The two teams finished the regular season with a dramatic tie that was the lone blemish on a near-perfect run for Coquitlam. Monday's playoff test was a chance for a little revenge and the Raiders took it.
They built up a 17-0 lead in the first half and had to hold on during the dying seconds to advance to the final.
"The last three minutes was crazy time," remarked Raiders coach Kevin Parks. "We had the ball and marched it into their red zone but lost it on downs... On the last play [South Delta] threw the ball down field and I just saw it fly over my head but it hit the ground."
The league final goes Saturday, 7: 30 p.m. at Percy Perry Stadium.
The defence put on a clinic, setting the tone in the Coquitlam Wildcats' 16-0 shutout win over the defending peewee champion North Delta Longhorns last week in the opening round of the VMFL peewee playoffs.
The defensive line of Stephen Bowers, Michael Evans, Uriah Hesdalen, Mathew Hewabadegge and Liam Stewart was in full-deny mode as they held North Delta to limited yardage all game long. The secondary of Cole Kashino, Kieran Little and Jamal Mensah delivered drive-halting tackles.
Mensah would also score the game's first touchdown on a 40-yard run in the first quarter, and added some insurance late in the game.
