Pee Wee 9:30 am – Abbotsford Falcons (VCFL) vs Cloverdale Bobcats (VMFL)

Geroy Simon’s BC Lions may not have made it to the Grey Cup game but Coach Simon’s Bobcats have a chance to make up for that with a Pee Wee provincial championship.

The Bobcats, who finished the regular season with an 8-2 record, earned their way to the provincial championship after pummeling the Coquitlam Wildcats by a 40-6 score to capture the VMFL Pee Wee title.

The Falcons, meanwhile, were the most dominant team in the VCFL Pee Wee division going undefeated in league play, capturing the VCFL Pee Wee title by defeating Meadow Ridge Gold in the league championship, and then shutting out the Kelowna-Mission Lions last Saturday by a 22-0 score in the provincial semifinal.

Jr. Bantam 11:30 am – West Kelowna Sundevils (SIFC) vs Coquitlam Vikings (VMFL)

The VMFL champion Vikings look to cap off a perfect, undefeated season this Sunday when they face the SIFC champion Sundevils.

The Vikings finished with an 8-0 regular season record then outscored their three playoff opponents to date – the North Surrey Falcons, North Surrey Eagles and Coquitlam Raiders – by a combined 86-3 en route to a league title.

The Sundevils have just one blemish on their record this season albeit that loss came as a result of a forfeit meaning this championship is really between two teams that have yet to lose on the field this season.

The Sundevils earned their way to the provincial championship by pummeling the Island champion Victoria Renegades by a 48-0 score in the provincial semifinal.

Bantam 2 pm – Abbotsford Falcons (VCFL) vs South Delta Rams (VMFL)

The Falcons and Rams have had to wait an extra week compared to all the other divisions before getting a chance to settle the provincial championship but after this Sunday the wait will be all worth it for one of these teams.

The Rams are looking to cap off their Cinderella run to the championship after finishing fourth in the VMFL standings but earning their way to the provincial title game by shocking the first-seeded North Surrey Panthers by shutting them out 18-0 in the VMFL semifinal and following that up with a 24-9 win over the Langley Mustangs in the VMFL championship game.

The Falcons finished in second-place in the VCFL standings but managed to upset the undefeated Chilliwack Giants in the VCFL championship by a 25-12 score to earn a berth in the provincial title game.

Midget 4:30 pm – Langley Stampeders vs Coquitlam Falcons

At some point you can’t blame the Stampeders if they feel like they are a team of destiny.

After stumbling in the regular season to a 4-6 record, they started to pick up steam in the playoffs first scoring a wildcard round win over the North Surrey Bears, then upsetting the defending provincial champions and top-ranked White Rock Titans in the semifinal before earning their way to Sunday’s provincial championship game by taking out the second-round Meadow Ridge Knights last week with a 30-10 win.

If you look only at the standings, one might think that facing the sixth-seeded Coquitlam Falcons would make for an easier matchup for the Stampeders but things aren’t necessary as they seem.

The Falcons officially finished the regular season with a 7-3 record but all they actually finished undefeated on the field. Their three losses were due to administrative errors with their rosters that forced them to forfeit their wins.

The Falcons proved they should have been considered the best in the regular season all along as they cruised in the playoffs earning wins over the Nanaimo Redmen, Victoria Spartans and Cowichan Bulldogs en route to the provincial championship game.
