COQUITLAM — Jacob Dodd played the role of workhorse Friday night in Coquitlam, and quarterback Noah Falconer’s eight-yard touchdown pass to running back Providence Ndizeye proved to be the difference as Abbotsford’s W.J. Mouat Hawks held off a furious comeback attempt by the host Centennial Centaurs.
Dodd played the table-setting role well for the Hawks, who along with the Centaurs, were attempting to win their first games of the Eastern Conference season. He rushed 31 times for 136 yards, scoring a one-yard touchdown in the process.
After Ndizeye’s touchdown had put the Hawks up 23-14, Centennial came back with a touchdown of its own with about 90 seconds remaining, then successfully recovered an onside kick to make it 23-21.
Driving for the win, the Centaurs had a long field goal attempt blocked on the last play of the game as the Hawks hung on to improve to 2-2 overall and 1-1 in the East.
Mouat quarterback Falconer went 7-of-10 for 168 yards and two touchdowns, including a 76 yard strike to his brother Elijah Falconer, who made three catches for 110 yards.
The Mouat defence was led by Slater McCrae’s seven tackles. Reuben Reardon, Jarod Jensen and Dion Pellerin all had four tackles as the Hawks rallied from a 14-6 halftime deficit.
