The Coquitlam Chargers playoff run came to an end last weekend when the bantam club was defeated by the Richmond Raiders in the semifinals last weekend.

The game was a back-and-forth affair for most of the 60 minutes, however the Raiders pulled away toward the end to secure the victory.

Richmond got on the board early, but the Chargers were able to fight back with two touchdowns from Martin Norman in the second quarter.

Martin and teammate Dade Motz both added touchdowns in the third, but it was not enough to slow the blistering Raiders offence.

Richmond won the game 42-30.

PEEWEE

The Coquitlam Wildcats increased their win streak to 10 when they defeated the Cloverdale Bobcats 47-0 in peewee minor football last weekend.

The Vancouver Mainland Football League club has dominated the opposition this season with a high-powered offence. On Sunday, quarterback Keyshawn Dorsey ran the ball in for three touchdowns, while Jude Buchanan, Ziad Sabry, Nathan Massey and Tremel States-Jones rounded out the scoring with a TD each.

The Wildcats' defence kept the Bobcats off the board behind the efforts of Xavier Venkatata, Zack Wawryk, Aaron Wong, Jaxon Bailey and Justice Blake.

The Wildcats will begin their run for the VMFL title when they host a playoff game this weekend.
