Alberni Valley Sealions win junior bantam championship

The Alberni Valley junior bantam Sealions defeated Comox Valley Buccaneers 14–0 to win their division title, Saturday.

The Alberni Valley Sealions junior bantams have won back-to-back championships after defeating the Comox Valley Buccaneers 14–0 on Saturday (Nov. 19).

The win was bittersweet for the Sealions as they were supposed to play at home at Bob Dailey Stadium, but at the last minute were forced to play in Comox because Bob Dailey was covered in snow.

“We couldn’t use our field because it’s frozen,” Sealions’ head coach John Elley said from Comox. “Parks and Rec wouldn’t let us use it. We had to play our home game in Comox.”

The Sealions scored their first touchdown midway through the third quarter at Bill Moore Memorial Park and carried their 7–0 lead until late in the fourth quarter, when they added another TD to put the game away.

“The kids played unreal,” Elley said. The ground was frozen and hard, and the weather was cold, but the team persevered.
