nick Boughen, the director at cg Masters academy in new westminster, surveys the space in his new visual effects school that will become a green screen studio.

Computer animation school opens mario bartel

opened CG Masters Academy at New Westminster’s Plaza 88. By training artists to create photo-realistic effects, Boughen and his faculty of instructors—in areas like particles and dynamics, photography, lighting and shading, compositing and rigging—hope to fill a gap that often forces local production houses and effects studios to import talent from around the world to meet the ever-growing demand for computergenerated visuals by the film industry.

The measure of Nick Boughen’s success as an instructor will be when nobody notices his students’ work. After 15 years as a visual effects artist for films like I, Robot, Invictus and Salt, and TV series like The L Word, along with hundreds of commercials, Boughen has embarked on training the next generation of computer-savvy artists seeking to bring their imagination to life on the big screen. He and his wife Vickie have just

That can get expensive, dealing with language barriers, work visas, accommodation. Using homegrown talent also allows studios to take advantage of provincial tax incentives. Boughen says visual effects are no longer the exclusive domain of big-budget science fiction or action blockbusters. As locations become harder or more expensive to access, and directors push their imaginations, visual effects can bring the images in their head to reality.

“Creative people are seduced by the idea they can create anything they can imagine,” says Boughen. Sometimes those imaginings can be as mundane as placing a specific building in the background of a shot. It’s not glamourous work, says Boughen. Creating that background can take a team of artists days of writing code. A low-res version is then delivered to the director as a reference for the foreground action he wants to shoot. please see FuLL-tIme, A3




There’s a buzz about New Westminster, and it’s bound to get louder at the New West Economic Forum to be hosted Nov. 8 by the city and the Chamber of Commerce. The forum will bring together leaders in retail, health care, education, real estate and demographics to discuss key issues and trends that will influence the city and region’s economy, said Mayor Wayne Wright. “New Westminster’s position and economic advantages will be a key focus of the event.” Compared to the rest of Metro Vancouver, New Westminster issued the greatest value of building permits per square kilometer in 2011- $15,120,960. By 2031, the city’s population is expected to surpass 90,000 residents. “New Westminster has experienced tremendous growth over the past decade and this is a great opportunity to hear from some of the key players behind the success,” said Chamber of Commerce president Andrew Hopkins. please see reNNIe, A3

Spreading the gospel of the blues Mario Bartel

Brent Morrison is a bluesman. But he’s not much of a guitarist and he can’t blow a lick on a harmonica.

The two elements must then be tracked so the camera movements are in sync and the visual effects lit and shaded so they look realistic before everything is composited together. The whole process can take weeks or months for a final product that might appear on screen for four seconds. And if the visual effects team has done their job well, says Boughen, nobody will notice the White House behind Angelina Jolie as she strides towards a helicopter in the movie Salt isn’t the real deal. It’s that kind of seamless subtlety that Boughen has come to appreciate as his own career has advanced from being a CG generalist to a supervisor with a specialty in lighting and shading that makes textures look realistic. “When visual effects are done spectacularly good, you rejoice,” says Boughen. “But you cringe when they’re done spectacularly bad.” Since the spring, Boughen has traded his keyboard and mouse for hammer and nails as his crew assembles three classrooms with up to 14 computer workstations each, and high definition projectors all connected to an eight-terabyte server, as well as a studio equipped with green and blue screens and digital cameras. The school is holding a bootcamp in Houdini programming in October and the first semester of full-time studies is expected to begin in January. Locating in New West, away from the hub of film production in Vancouver, does present some challenges, says Boughen. But the city is only a SkyTrain ride away, and his students will benefit from more affordable living expenses as well as a new creative energy he expects will begin percolating Downtown when the new civic centre is finished across the street. Having a brand new 10-screen cinema just down the hall doesn’t hurt either. He’s had some preliminary discussions with Landmark Cinemas about getting access to the big screen for students to be able to view their handiwork as it would be seen in a movie environment, and possibly even show it off to the public. “We consider ourselves a production house,” says Boughen. With the goal of turning out work so good, viewers won’t even notice it until the credits roll. • To learn more about CG Masters Academy, go to www.

Same-sex marriage more accepted

Jeff Nagel Black Press

Experts say a jump in same-sex couples counted in Metro Vancouver in the latest census likely reflects society’s growing acceptance of gay marriage since Canada legalized it in 2005. The 2011 census counted 6,425 same-sex couples in Metro Vancouver – 1.2 per cent

of all Metro couples – a jump of more than 2,200 from 2006. Urban Futures demographer Ryan Berlin suggested gay couples are now more likely to disclose their relationship than they were in 2006. “In the seven years since [gay marriage was legalized] there’s a lot more acceptance and understanding,” he said. “People are

Courts in crisis


Even if you’ve never committed a crime, or a had a run-in with the law, you’ve likely encountered Canada’s justice system. Whether it’s disputing a speeding or parking ticket, or filing a civil claim against a neighbour for damage to a hedge, or seeking unpaid spousal support, the average everyday Joe and Jane still need the courts to work. But when you pass through the front doors to Richmond provincial court, the beautiful architecture and appearance mask a broken system. Frowns are everywhere, from judges to court clerks, to lawyers, witnesses, victims and the accused. This week, Richmond provincial court Judge Ron Fratkin, who shares a full-time position with another senior Richmond judge, expressed his frustration. Faced with an unmanageable court list, he had no choice but to add on to the frustration. Ask local lawyers, and they’ll tell you there are lots of local needs. More judges, more Crown counsels, more sheriffs, more money for Legal Aid. And they will all cost money. Lots of it. Who cares? you ask as you’re reading this. You should. A broken justice system means bad guys are staying on the road, police officers are spinning their investigative wheels, and lawyers are wasting their breath. It means children in ministry care are staying there longer than they should, it means family disputes are left to fester, it means people who are caught with their hands in the cookie jar are set free. While it will cost more money to fix the ailing system, the alternative is the resulting everyday waste in the form of the efforts of those well-paid people who keep our communities safe. —Richmond Review/Black Press

Swapping sociology for socket sets VICTORIA – Premier Christy Clark’s latest employment announcement set the tone for one of the big issues in the 2013 election. Flanked by aircraft technician students at BCIT in Burnaby, Clark announced a $75-million program to upgrade aging trade and technical school facilities and hire instructors. And she did it with some pointed criticism of the career path chosen by many of today’s high school students. Clark introduced a student electrician, the first woman to win the senior technology education award at her high school, who then went on to get a bachelor’s degree in English and sociology. No job, so she went to BCIT. Her message was clear. The government’s pre-election budget is going to shift priorities to the huge number of skilled trades jobs that are already going begging in the north. More students will get started in high school, instead of being subsidized to wander around

and find themselves with an unfocused university degree that still leaves them in need of practical skills. Shop upgrades were announced for trades training in Prince George, Kelowna and Greater Victoria. There will be new student financial aid, but it will be tied to skill programs the economy needs now. And with the government’s financial situation, you can bet that sociology, women’s studies and the rest of the dead-end programs dear to the hearts of last year’s Occupy campers will feel the pinch. The B.C. Liberal skills training push was partly inspired by last year’s “inequality” protest, after Dawson Creek Mayor Mike Bernier waded into the Occupy Vancouver squat to hand

out business cards. They need cooks and labourers as well as pipefitters up there these days, and that’s before the B.C. gas patch goes into a huge expansion for Asian exports. A version of Kevin Falcon’s “welfare air” idea to move unemployed recipients north was included in last week’s announcement by Clark and her jobs czar, Pat Bell. Called “Job Match,” it’s a $2.9-million pilot program in the Peace region. It will deliver basic education and work boots for people in that region before anyone will be flown up from Nanaimo or Nelson. Cruising along at nearly 50 per cent in the polls, the NDP have also put a heavy emphasis on post-secondary. But they’re still playing to the urban Occupy crowd, with a promise of a tax on banks to fund student grants. Instead of providing loan relief after successful completion, they’re going to hand out money at the front end, just like they did in my student days. My experience as a student, a











job seeker and a parent is that free money encourages aimless study, and the selection of courses that are appealing rather than safe investments. We already have far too much of that, and I think most students today would be better off with a bigger debt and a well-paying job. As the new trades plan was being rolled out (and mostly ignored by the Vancouver media), former finance minister Colin Hansen announced he’s retiring. It was Hansen who started the push for skills training back in 2008, emphasizing that there will be a million new jobs open by 2019, 600,000 of them due to retiring baby boomers. Hansen made a sales trip to snowy Toronto to launch advertising to lure people to B.C. That effort is being revised with a series of interprovincial and international trips, because even if all 650,000 high school students graduate and go to work in B.C. from now to 2019, it won’t be enough to fill all the jobs on the horizon.

Revised application no better than first As we have been saying since March 2011, the value of the benefits of the Elizabeth Fry Society expansion have been greatly overstated and exaggerated so as to draw New Westminster City Council into turning its back on the residents of Lower Sapperton. In the revised proposal, gone is the much-touted social benefit of a daycare. Gone is the vaunted economic benefit of job creation (i.e. daycare workers). City staff submitted a report to council last week saying that EFry has backed away from the daycare and would like to build a dramatically different three storey building instead. The reasons given are exactly what we said

all along: they cannot meet the regulatory requirements and there will be more than enough daycare provided by others in the very near future. EFry also wants to further reduce the parking down to 20 spaces. This is quite odd as throughout the Official Community Plan process EFry maintained that the reason they only needed 26 parking spaces was because the kids would be dropped off and their daycare staff would be using transit. So why should the elimination of the daycare have an effect on the parking? Because they can save themselves a huge amount of money by building less parking, that’s why. Watching city staff answer questions about

the parking situation made for some cringeworthy viewing as staff continue to obfuscate the parking situation. The truth is that the 15-space parking lot across the alley from the 402 East Columbia St. building was purpose built for the Sapperton Medical Building. It is on the drawings, which are not identified as being either 402 East Columbia or 275 Sherbrooke—they are identified with the three relevant legal descriptions and the project name: Sapperton Medical Building. This project proposes to remove the existing parking from 402 East Columbia and leave it with no parking. They now plan to build a three storey office building

and a two storey, 10 unit housing project with only 20 parking spaces. This is a neighbourhood that has huge parking problems brought on by the proximity to the SkyTrain station, the hospital and the commercial strip along East Columbia Street. The rezoning process requires that the applicant should use the feedback from the neighbours to decide it they should make a formal application. The neighbourhood has spoken loud and clear that they were opposed to the OCP change and they are opposed to the rezoning. Most of those contacted in the immediate neighourhood are against it. The McBride Sapperton Residents

Association is against it. The Sapperton Business Association is against it. If the city follows its own procedures and a majority of councillors actually abide by the wishes of their constituents :00

: A salesperson who calls on our company has recently begun sending small gifts to my home. He has never mentioned the gifts when visiting my office but I feel I should say something. Do you have any suggestions?

You need to ask yourself, “Why is he giving me these gifts?” The answer may be more complex than you realize: gifts given to people in a business relationship generally have a different intention than those given to friends. If you recall the last time you received a gift from a relative or close friend, you valued it is a symbol of love or affection. The motive was obvious and nothing was expected in return. On the other hand, the salesperson is giving you these gifts with a more practical purpose in mind. You have rewarded him with business— which has probably enhanced his commissions— and so now he is tangibly demonstrating his appreciation. In addition, the gifts are implicitly communicating that continued business will mean more gifts. The connection between the two should not be overlooked. More troubling, however, is the fact that the gifts have been sent furtively to your home. They are, in effect, being given to you secretly in order than no one in your office should know. You say he has not mentioned the gifts when



This notice is published pursuant to section 4 of the Recall and Initiative Act. Approval in principle has been granted on an application for an initiative petition. The petition will be issued to proponent Dana Larsen on Monday, November 19, 2012 and signature sheets must be submitted to the Chief Electoral Of ficer by Monday, February 18, 2013. The Title of the Initiative is: An initiative to amend the Police Act. Summary of Initiative: The initiative draft Bill entitled, “Sensible Policing Act” proposes to amend the Police Act to no longer use provincial police resources on the enforcement of current laws in relation to simple possession and use of cannabis by adults. The draft law would prohibit the use of provincial police resources for this purpose, would require police to report in detail to the Minister of Justice any actual use of resources for this purpose and why it was necessary, and require the Minister to publish that report. The Bill also proposes that the Province would call upon the Federal Government to repeal the federal prohibition on cannabis, or give British Columbia an exemption, such that British Columbia is able to tax and regulate cannabis similar to the regulation of alcohol and tobacco. As well it proposes that British Columbia shall establish a Provincial Commission to study the means and requirements necessary for the province to establish a legal and regulated model for the production and use of cannabis by adults. Last, the Bill would make non-lawful possession and use of cannabis by minors an offence similar to possession and use of alcohol.

Initiative Advertising: Individuals or organizations who sponsor initiative advertising, other than the proponent and registered opponents, must register with the Chief Electoral Officer before they conduct or publish initiative advertising. Registration applications are available from Elections BC. Who May Sign the Petition: Registered voters as of Monday, November 19, 2012 may sign the initiative petition. Individuals may only sign the petition once, and must sign the petition sheet for the electoral district in which they are registered at the time of signing. Signed petitions are available for public inspection.

visiting you; this is not surprising because the gifts have been given to you personally. You may not like the word, but I would suggest you are accepting “bribes.” And, while the gifts are not particularly valuable—at least in contrast to the money offered to some disgraced politicians—it is really the principle you should consider. It is entirely possible that the gifts will incrementally increase in value so you may suddenly realize they total something quite significant. Your only option I believe is to return all the gifts and request that he immediately desist sending you any further gifts. You don’t have to embarrass him or make him feel uncomfortable. The idea of sending you gifts make even have originated with his supervisor, so it is not necessary for you to reprimand him. Once the “slate is clean” you may continue to have a productive professional relationship which should not affect the continued opportunities for you to purchase needed products and services from him and his company.

Hyack Festival Association

Fraser River Discovery Centre

Hyack Festival Association is extremely pleased to be co-presenting the inaugural RiverFest celebration with our friends at the Fraser River Discovery Centre. 2012 has been a year of profound change for our organization as we re-shape our calendar of major festivals and events to ensure they are vibrant, contemporary and inclusive. The introduction of RiverFest is part of that renewed commitment and we are delighted to be working closely with the Discovery Centre, the City of New Westminster, the Arts Council of New Westminster and River Market in a celebration of BC Rivers Day and our Fraser River heritage. By leveraging partnerships with key community stakeholders, we are building stronger foundations that allow us to combine resources to produce a higher quality event for the community. RiverFest is an outgrowth of our FraserFest event and the FRDC’s Artists on the River. Working together made great sense and we hope you will enjoy the results of this new alliance. We invite you to join in the fun and be Inspired by the Fraser. Sincerely, Douglas Smith, Executive Director Hyack Festival Association

The Fraser River Discovery Centre is happy to celebrate the BC and World Rivers Day with you again this year. The Fraser River is at the heart of everything we do and a constant source of inspiration and energy for our organization. Stretching almost 1,400 km from the Rocky Mountains to the Pacific Ocean, the mighty Fraser is unparalleled in B.C. in natural beauty, economic importance and human diversity. New West is a community that owes much of its unique identity to the environmental, sociocultural and economic impact of the Fraser River. Our community has a long history of celebrations for the Fraser River. With our partners and supporters we are proud to bring you RiverFest, a true celebration of the Fraser sure to inspire you and hopefully create a renewed appreciation and understanding of the economic, environmental and social importance of this unique resource. We hope RiverFest will also inspire you to take action to effect positive change on the river’s environment so it can be sustained for generations and continue to be an economic driver. Sincerely, Catherine Ouellet-Martin Executive Director Fraser River Discovery Centre

I live the good life

to be the best wife, mother and sister I can be.

Great music, films, art and hands-on fun On Friday night, RiverFest will feature great music on the YVR Main Stage on the New Westminster waterfront between 6 and 9 p.m. Then all day Saturday, the music will continue to ramp up, offering great bands from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., with the added excitement of things for the kids—crafts, games and more hands one activities—a tugboat parade at about 3:30 p.m., and short films at the Fraser River Discovery Centre. And as part of the new partnership between the Discovery Centre and the Hyack Festival Association, there are twice as many reasons to come down to the river this weekend. On top of activities and music, the waterfront will also feature the Artists on the River exhibition, featuring artists and artisans who produce original pieces focusing on the river or who have been influenced by the river.

The impetus for the festival is B.C. Rivers Day and World Rivers Day—both which got their start in this province. “What better place to celebrate these two events than in New Westminster, a community with deep connections to the Fraser River,” said Catherine OuelletMartin, executive director of the Fraser River Discovery Centre. “With its new Pier Park, River Market and a Discovery Centre completely dedicated to the Fraser, the city’s waterfront is a perfect setting to celebrate B.C.’s greatest river.” The quality of the musical offerings at the festival is sure to impress, said Douglas Smith, Executive Director, Hyack Festival Association. “We are absolutely delighted with the YVR Main Stage line-up,” Smith said. RiverFest is the result of combining two previous events held

on the Quay—Hyack’s FraserFest and the Discovery Centre’s Artists on the River. The hallmark Paddlewheeler boat tours and workboat parade return along with art exhibits and interactive activities from conservation organizations and community groups that build upon the river and environmental themes. The event also marks BC Rivers Day a world-wide event held every year on the last Sunday in September. This year is the 32nd anniversary of BC Rivers Day. With its strong connection to the river, New Westminster is marking the occasion with RiverFest, bringing environment, art and entertainment together, in celebration of the living, working Fraser River. RiverFest is free to the public and will take place on the boardwalk at Westminster Quay on Friday, Sept. 28 and Saturday, Sept. 29.

Port Metro Vancouver is excited to participate in the celebration of the living and working river in honour of BC and World Rivers Day. We also took part in and supported this year’s Shoreline Clean Up on Sunday, Sept. 23 along South Dyke Road in Queensborough. Visit us at the Fraser River Discovery Centre during RiverFest to compete in our jigsaw puzzle game, meet our seagull mascot, Salty, and learn about the cargo we trade and our environmental efforts through fun activities and interactive displays. Join the Port’s Community Relations team and local historian Archie Miller from A Sense of History Research Services and explore the river aboard the MV Native, a replica of the paddlewheelers used to

move cargo and people at the turn of the 19th century. These steam-powered ships once traveled the Fraser River carrying goods to and from the Port. Today, they have been replaced by visits of ships moving containers, automobiles and cargo such as forest products, grain, and steel. Hourly tours take place between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 29—rain or shine. Tickets are $5 for adults and $2 for children, and can be purchased on the dock below Inn at the Quay, during RiverFest or at the Fraser River Discovery Centre from today until Friday, Sept. 28. Proceeds from the tours benefit the Fraser Alumni Association for leadership and maritime education programs

for sea cadets. Port Metro Vancouver is Canada’s largest and busiest Port, trading $75 billion worth of cargo each year and generating 1 in 12 jobs in the Lower Mainland. But our business is not just to deliver goods; it’s to do it in a good way. We identify areas of importance for our neighbours and work to build strong relationships to share the benefits of trade. Visit portmetrovancouver. com to learn more about the goods we trade and how we work hard to be a good neighbour.

Festival features Here is some of what awaits you at this year’s RiverFest:

Family Fun

Artists on the River Art Show

The festival will feature a variety of age-appropriate games and craft stations to provide children and adults with entertaining, interactive hands-on educational experiences. All exhibitors at the festival are required to provide hands-on activities that either promote artistic endeavors or environmental stewardship or relate to river heritage. Education about the Fraser River is a key activity for promoting understanding of the value of a healthy, productive river. Might as well make education fun!

The popular Artists on the River market on the esplanade engages local artists and artisans specializing in various media to display and sell their artwork along the riverfront. Artists on the River Art Show features artists and artisans who produce original pieces focusing on the river or who have been influenced by the river and depict the influence in their pieces. This weekend also marks the opening of the third edition of the *Click* exhibit inside the Fraser River Discovery Centre. Photographers of all ages and from all regions of the Fraser submit photos of the Fraser River through The Fraser River Discovery Centre’s Flickr page in the months leading to the festival with a selection of the best photos being exhibited until next RiverFest.

Foods of the Fraser: With its Food 360 vision, the River Market celebrates the full circle of food in a local, passionate, and sustainable way. Come see what each of the merchants has specially prepared to celebrate the River with you. Festivals goers are well served!

BC and World Rivers Day Rivers Day is an international event, held the last Sunday of September. Endorsed by the United Nations, Rivers Day brings millions of people together at hundreds of events worldwide to celebrate river systems and promote water stewardship. And it all started here in B.C.! Rivers Day was started as a simple, friendly shoreline clean up initiative by Mark Angelo. Now Rivers Day attracts up to 100,000 participants across the province. Its success inspired the creation of World Rivers Day in 2005. Now, the event is embraced by millions of people in close to 30 countries around the world. In September 1980, Angelo organized a trip to clean up the Thompson River. He gathered 40 friends on five rafts and they floated down the river, fishing out junk along the way. At the end of the day, they had collected quite the heap. They had even removed a couple of cars! Looking at the pile, Angelo realized that the day should be an annual event, locally organized to clean up and celebrate our province’s rivers. BC Rivers Day was born. Over the next few years, the event rippled across the province. In 2003, the United Nations declared the International Year of Freshwater and launched the “Water for Life Decade.” Angelo got busy again and approached the UN about turning BC Rivers Day into World Rivers Day. In 2005, Rivers Day was officially declared around the world. “Our rivers really are the arteries of our planet; they are lifelines in the truest sense,” says Angelo.

Westminster Quay Boardwalk So much to enjoy on the river this weekend Fri 6-9pm Sat 11am-6pm Take a historic harbour tour

New Westminster’s historic and contemporary connection to the working Fraser River has always been strong and significant. Join local historian Archie Miller and Port Metro Vancouver staff for a fully narrated tour aboard the MV Native, a replica 19th-century paddlewheeler. You’ll never look at the river the same way again. The hourly tours will take place Saturday, Sept. 29 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. (last departure), rain or shine. Tickets are $5 for adults and $2 for kids, and can be purchased at the Fraser River Discovery Centre prior to the RiverFest weekend or on the dock, below the Inn at the Quay, the day of the tours. All proceeds will benefit the Fraser Alumni Association for leadership and maritime education programs for sea cadets. This family-friendly

The Lucille Johnstone Workboat Parade

Always a crowd pleaser, this signature event is named after Lucille Johnstone, whose nickname “Tugboat Annie,” was the product of a 45-year career with the towing industry on the Fraser. She also made many remarkable achievements dedicated to community service. In her honour the workboats of the Fraser, which play an important role in moving cargo and ships throughout Port Metro Vancouver, will set aside their duties and gather in front of the Westminster Quay boardwalk to dazzle spectators with their amazing strength and agility. Start: about 3:30 p.m.

Special film screenings

From breathtaking beauty to heart-wrenching devastation to lifeblood connections, the following presentations will foster a stronger understanding about the importance of our river systems. 11:30 a.m. - Photos of the Fraser with renowned archaeologist and photographer Rick Blacklaws. Rick will feature the breathtaking beauty of the Fraser River from its upper reaches to the lower estuary and will preview his recent work complete and offer photography tips on using your digital camera. 1:30 p.m.— Midway Island - Kelowna-based cinematographer and photographer Jan Vozenilek began his current cinematic journey with a surprising invitation that turned into a lifetime project and reels of Partners stunning film footage. As part of a film crew working on the remote island of Midway Atoll in the North Pacific, Jan documented an ongoing, horrifically symbolic environmental tragedy affected by humans who live thousands of kilometers away. He paints a vivid picture of a remote island covered in toothbrushes, cigarette lighters,

combs and other swirling garbage. It’s home to millions of albatrosses that cannot distinguish between plastic trash and their traditional seafood fare. He explains why this is happening and what we can do about it. 4:10 p.m. — Watch Discovery Channel’s Industrious and take a behind the scenes tour of Port Metro Vancouver and the cargo we trade with countries all over the world. Learn how logs are exported, everyday goods are imported and the work required to move thousands of passengers on cruise ships heading to Alaska!

Aldrin Asuncion ran for 169 yards and scored three touchdowns to lead the New Westminster Hyacks to a 36-33 win over Mt. Boucherie Bears Friday at the Apple Bowl in Kelowna. After spotting the Bears a 12-7 lead at halftime, Asuncion went to work. He punched the ball over the goal line on a 16 yard run in the third quarter, then followed with the two-point conversion to put the Hyacks in front to stay, 15-12. Stewart Sommerfeld extended that advantage to 10 points when he pulled in a 34-yard pass from quarterback Tommy Robertson. Asuncion’s second score of the quarter put the

Hyacks up 29-19 heading into the final period. His 69-yard run for a touchdown was the only score of the fourth quarter. Asuncion’s rushing accounted for more than half the 292 yards gained by the entire team. Robertson completed 10 of his 15 passing attempts for 105 yards and one touchdown. He also ran the ball into the end zone on one of his eight carries. Sonu Kainth led the Hyacks defensive corps with five tackles, two sacks, one blocked kick and he also recovered an onside kick. Jonathan He contributed five tackles and two sacks.
