For the first time in the school's history, Eugene Reimer Middle School made it to the B.C. high school football final after a stellar season of Grade 8 football. But the championship was not to be as the Ravens dropped their Double-A title game to the Stafford Sky Hawks 21-0 at Burnaby Lakes Sports Complex Thursday.
Ravens troubles could be summed up in one word - fumbles. After Stafford took the opening kickoff for a touchdown, Reimer then fumbled the next kick and Stafford recovered. The defence played well, stopping this drive and three others from inside the 30-yard line.
The Ravens drove on their first possession from their own one-yard line to the Stafford 30, but another fumble turned the ball over. Stafford's defence held for the rest of the game and the Ravens came away with a second place finish.
