Terry Fox 0 at W.J. Mouat 33
Howard Tsunamura, The Province October 15, 2011
ABBOTSFORD — There’s no better way to put a disappointing loss behind you than by answering the bell the very next week with a shutout win.
Still stinging from its 25-20 loss to No. 1 St. Thomas More in its conference opener a week ago, the No. 2 W.J. Mouat Hawks (4-2, 1-1) put forward their best defensive face to blank its Port Coquitlam rivals, the Terry Fox Ravens (4-2, 1-1), Friday night in Abbotsford.
“It was first and foremost a great defensive effort by our guys,” said Hawks head coach Denis Kelly.”(Defensive coordinator Gary) Naylor had them ready.”
With the defence doing its part in the opening half, running back Devin Logan stepped up and delivered a Denard Robinson-like first two quarters.
Showing the versatility and the athleticism of Michigan’s multi-dimensional quarterback, Logan returned a punt 65 yards for a score, took a handoff 20 yards into the end zone, then went 55 yards through the air on the halfback option to receiver Deion Bain as Mouat led 20-0 at the break.
In the second half, Mouat quarterback Daniel Markin went 25 yards to Bain for the score, then 20 yards to Tanner Strauss for another.
“Devin Logan and Deion Bain showed their big play capabilities once again,” remarked Kelly. “We will need a similar effort next week (at Lord) Tweedsmuir (Friday, 2:30 p.m.).”
