Vancouver College opened its 2013 AAA varsity football campaign Friday with a 33-28 win over the Mt. Boucherie Bears at O’Hagan Field.
Fighting Irish running back Robbie Welch ran for three touchdowns and Grade 10 quarterback Giordy Belfiore made his varsity debut, throwing 8 of 15 for 69 yards.
In a clash of the Catholic brotherhoods, Notre Dame fell 7-28 to the St. Thomas More Knights in Burnaby on Friday.
Incredibly, the Knights led 2-0 at the half. Nick Carusi put up the Jugglers only points, rushing for a 12-yard touchdown off an STM turnover.
In AA, Eric Hamber plays its first game Sept. 13 against Earl Marriott at a still undetermined location.
