Moxin scores a major for Team BC
Tyler Moxin of North Delta scored the lone touchdown for Team BC, lifting the group of under-15 players to a 10-7 win over Team USA during the International Bowl in Arlington, Texas.
Staged by USA Football, the International Bowl was three days of activity for Team BC, which included the game Friday against Team USA at Maverick Stadium at the University of Texas-Arlington.
"I still can’t believe this happened," said Team BC head coach Peter McCall. "We were prepared, we were inspired and we were motivated. We just played unbelievably.
"We rose to the occasion. We got past all the hype of it being Team America and we showed that this was Team BC and that we have some of the best players in this age group playing for sure."
Moxin caught a touchdown pass on the opening drive of the game to give BC a 7-0 lead.
Team USA would tie the game, but a Team BC field goal midway through the fourth quarter was the difference.
Moxin, a receiver from the North Delta Longhorns minor football team, was one of five local players on the team selected by Football BC. Others included defensive back Joel Klaasen and running back Zander Bailey of North Surrey Minor Football, linebacker Cole Barron of the Holy Cross Crusaders high school program, and offensive lineman Brayden Gatland of Cloverdale Minor Football.
