Pee Wee: Cloverdale Lynx vs Coquitlam Wildcats
The Cloverdale Lynx are pretty happy sharing the top of the Pee Wee division with two other teams thanks to their 5-0 record so far. This weekend however they just may have their hands full as they will host the Coquitlam Wildcats who are sitting right behind the Lynx with a 4-1 record.
Coquitlam’s only loss this season came back in Week 1 against the now 5-0 Westside Warriors. They have won four in a row since then.
This is a pinnacle game for both teams as a loss for the Lynx could jeopardize their chances of a top seed going into the playoffs. For the Wildcats, a win would go a long ways in getting them a home field first round playoff game.
Game time is 11 am at Cloverdale Athletic Park in Surrey.
Junior Bantam: Coquitlam Vikings vs South Delta Rams
With the season now halfway over, a clash between two undefeated teams here in Week 6 means big implications for both teams at this critical point in the season.
If you’re looking for some great football this weekend, you need to head down to Coquitlam where the 5-0 Coquitlam Vikings will host the equally impressive 5-0 South Delta Rams.
The Rams come into this game having yet to yield a single point all year and with their powerhouse offense looking to give the Vikings some trouble. For the Vikings, this will be their first real test of the year as they’ve only played one team so far with a record better than .500.
Game time is 11:45 am at Kevin Chin Field in Coquitlam (formerly Mackin Park).

Pee Wee: Abbotsford vs Meadow Ridge Gold
Meadow Ridge Gold has been waiting two weeks for a chance to get back on the field and earn measure of revenge against Abbotsford and they’ll that opportunity this Saturday, October 6 when they visit Rotary Stadium. Kickoff is at 11:45 am.
Meadow Ridge Gold and Abbotsford met Saturdays two weeks ago back on September 22 and, despite the two teams being the two highest scoring in the Pee Wee division, managed to put up only eight combined points in the contest with Abbotsford coming away as 8-0 victors.

BC Junior Football
The Okanagan Sun are by no means a lock for the playoffs but if they do get manage to get there they could be a dark horse to go all the way.
A missed field goal in the dying seconds of last Saturday’s game cost the Sun a chance to upset the Vancouver Island Raiders as they fell 32-30. Their loss, coupled with the Kamloops Broncos’ Sunday win over the hapless Chilliwack Huskers, means they enter the second-to-last week of the regular season tied for the fourth and final playoff spot.
The Sun (2-6), however, can pretty much pencil in a victory this Saturday when they meet the winless Huskers (0-8) at Exhibition Stadium. Kickoff is at 2 pm.
The Sun will also be doing some big-time scoreboard watching of the match between Westshore Rebels and Broncos later on Saturday at 7 pm from Hillside Stadium. The Rebels had their then league-leading six game win streak snapped last Saturday at the hands of the Langley Rams by a 41-7 score. It’s a big game for Westshore as well as they look to try and move into second place in the standings and a chance to host a first-round playoff game.
The marquee match of the weekend will be the one pitting the Raiders and Rams together for the final time in the regular season. The Raiders knocked off the Rams two Saturdays ago at McLeod Stadium by a 41-29 score and the Rams, who will be also hosting this Saturday’s rematch between the clubs, will be out for revenge and a chance to pull into a tie for top spot in the overall standings. Kickoff is at 4 pm.
