The Terry Fox Ravens will host the Kelowna Owls Friday as the BC Secondary Schools Football Association playoffs move to the quarter-final round.

The Ravens will be looking to advance its winning streak to eight games after getting a week off while wild card teams battled to keep their Subway Bowl hopes alive.

One of those was the Owls, who defeated New Westminster 38-14 last Friday.

Another was the Centennial Centaurs, who will play Vancouver College on Saturday after dispatching Belmont 39-6 in their wild card showdown at Percy Perry Stadium last Friday.

Running back Ziad Sabry scored five touchdowns and amassed 228 yards in 13 carries to lead the fourth-ranked Centaurs over no. 5 Belmont.

Centaurs quarterback Malcolm Cameron completed eight of his 16 passes for 92 yards and Luciano Ruggiero led the defence with six tackles.

Vancouver College will be a formidable opponent for Centennial. The Fighting Irish won all seven of its regular season games, scoring 218 points while allowing just 26.

Their game goes at 1 p.m. next Saturday, while Fox and Kelowna play at 7 p.m. Friday.
