Hyacks make run for Borderites
Running back Angelo Tanjuaquio scored on touchdown runs of 60 and 36 yards as the New Westminster Hyacks tied the Blaine Borderites 21-21 in an exhibition high school football game last Friday to cap off spring training camp.
Eric Teng also scored on a 26-yard touchdown run. On defence, Kaeden Hnatiw had five tackles, including two sacks and a tackle for a loss. The Hyacks had a total of four sacks. Jordan Chin also had five tackles as well as opening up holes for the running backs on the offensive line.
“More than anything I was really pleased with our depth,” said head coach Farhan Lalji in an email. “Our second and third units fared well against some good competition and it puts us in a better position in the fall to deal with the rigours of a tough AAA schedule.
“Our defence showed they really wanted to get after the football. We have installed a new system so there is still a lot of learning going on, but the tackling and intensity has definitely improved.”
After the game, Grade 9 offensive lineman Harper Sherman left to attend the Nike Combine and Camp in Oregon. On Monday, he visited the University of Oregon.
