Mount Douglas will face Terry Fox Ravens for spot in B.C. high school football championship

The Mount Douglas Rams earned their spot in the B.C. high school football final four with a convincing win over Kelowna.

The Rams’ ground attack rolled over the visiting Owls, with three Mount Douglas rushers surpassing 100 yards. Declann Michielin had 129 yards on 14 carries and a pair of touchdowns, while Gavin Cobb notched 113 yards and two touchdowns on seven carries and Manny Lopez finished with 101 yards on seven carries.

Gideone Kremler completed 11-of-15 for 151 yards and two touchdowns, including a 60-yard strike to Gevhahn McNally-Hardisty. Kremler connected with Cobb for the other touchdown strike, while Aidan Kachanoski also rushed for a touchdown.

Kachanoski also contributed six tackles and a sack on defence, with Michielin also finishing with six tackles. Isaiah Hunt pulled in an interception, while Lopez, McNally-Hardisty and Ethan Hendricks all had fumble recoveries.

Mount Douglas moves on to face the Terry Fox Ravens in Saturday’s semifinal at BC Place stadium. Vancouver College tackles New West in the other semifinal. The winners will move on to the Subway Bowl Dec. 5 at BC Place.

The Junior Rams also picked up a semifinal berth with their 19-0 win over St. Thomas More College. The Junior Rams face Lord Tweedsmuir Wednesday.

Mount Douglas’ varsity squad is well represented among all-star selections for B.C. high school football’s western conference.

Rams receiver Gavin Cobb was named offensive MVP, while offensive lineman Aidan Kachanoski, running back Declann Michielin, quarterback Gideone Kremler, defensive lineman Trystin Watersand and defensive back Oliver MacKenzie were named western conference all-stars. The all-stars are selected through voting by opposing conference head coaches.
