As a reminder, all Football BC member leagues are invited to send us your "Game of the Week" for inclusion on our website and in our weekly e-newsletter, The Huddle.
BC Community Football Association
Midget: Meadow Ridge Knights vs White Rock Titans
Five undefeated teams remain at the Midget level after both Vancouver and North Surrey lost on the weekend.
One of those teams, Meadow Ridge, who shut out Vernon on the weekend and defeated the Longhorns in Week One, sit on top of the Midget division as one of those five undefeated teams.
Another one of those teams, the White Rock Titans, kept Chilliwack from scoring a major all day last Sunday and crushed the North Langley Bears the previous week.
This Saturday night, September 15, those two teams collide at Samuel Robertson Technical School in Maple Ridge to see who moves on to Week Three as a division leader. Game time is 7 pm.
Junior Bantam: Langley Outlaws vs Royal City Hyacks
Thirteen teams are vying for this division’s championship and after Week Two, six remain on a two-game winning streak.
In Week One, the Langley Outlaws easily defeated the North Surrey Falcons and then turned around last weekend and shut out the Burnaby Lions.
This weekend looks to be a real test for the Outlaws as they now face the 2-0 Royal City Hyacks, a team that went 9-0 last season and through to the championship game.
The Hyacks have had two very strong performances of their own so this Sunday, September 16 at Mercer Stadium in New Westminster, a real battle is going to take place and one team will carry on as undefeated. Game time is 11:15 am.

Pee Wee: Mission vs Meadow Ridge Gold
Mission won the VCFL Atom division last year and most of those players on that championship team have moved up to Pee Wee. This week’s featured match-up will showcase some of the top Pee Wee talent in the league.
Scores from last week’s games have not been updated as of this writing.
Game time is 4:30 pm this Saturday, September 15 at Samuel Robertson Technical Secondary School in Maple Ridge.

Junior Bantam: West Kelowna Sundevils vs Kelowna Dragons
This weekend’s highlight match sees the two teams with identical 2-1 records go head-to-head when the West Kelowna Sundevils clash with the Kelowna Dragons at the CNC Turf Field. Kickoff is at 2 pm.
Both clubs are trying to keep pace with the first overall Kelowna Lions who are the lone undefeated team in the junior bantam standings at 3-0.

New West is coming off a 40-0 pounding of Abbotsford last Friday while Carson Graham was shut out in their outing last Friday against Mission by a 20-0 score.

BC Junior Football
A broken down bus caused a delay of an hour and a half prior to last week’s tilt between the Westshore Rebels and the Okanagan Sun but when things finally got underway the Rebels showed that there was nothing broken about their game plan.
The Rebels (4-1) continued their run as the BCFC’s hottest team winning their fourth in a row by knocking off the Sun (1-4) by a score of 27-24. The Rebels will look to make it five straight victories this Sunday, September 16 when they return home to host the Kamloops Broncos (1-4) at Bear Mountain Stadium. Kickoff is at 4 pm.
The week’s action actually kicks off one day earlier on Saturday, September 15 with a pair of games. The Sun, now losers of three straight games, will face another tough task when they host the Vancouver Island Raiders (4-0-1) who are riding a three-game win streak after pounding the Chilliwack Huskers last week. Kickoff is 1 pm at the Apple Bowl in Kelowna.
The other game on Saturday takes place at Exhibition Stadium in Chilliwack where the woeful Huskers (0-5) will host the Langley Rams (4-0-1). Langley pounded the Broncos last week by a score of 55-10.

Given all the hype and promise the Thunderbirds had heading into the 2012 season, being winless two weeks into the campaign was certainly not where many would have expected Coach Shawn Olson’s crew to be.
They’ll look to get off their slide this Saturday, September 15 when they host the University of Saskatchewan Huskies at Thunderbird Stadium.
The game kicks off at 2 pm PT and can be seen on Shaw TV.
Last week on the road against the University of Regina, the T-Birds squandered a 13-7 half-time lead to fall 42-7 to drop their season record to 0-2.
The Huskies are also coming off a loss after dropping a 31-28 decision on the road to the Manitoba Bisons to fall to 1-1 on the season.

After dropping their home opener last week to Central Washington by a 56-28 score, the SFU Clan (1-1; 0-1 in Conference play) will go after their first Conference victory of the season on the road in Arcata, California this Saturday, September 15 when they face the Humboldt State Lumberjacks.
Kickoff is scheduled for 6 pm.
Humboldt State (2-0; 1-0 in Conference play) is the lone undefeated team left in the GNAC and are coming off a 42-17 pounding of the Azusa Pacific Cougars last Saturday.
The Clan and Lumberjacks met twice last season with Humboldt State sweeping the season series.
