Photos: STM Knights season ends after loss in B.C. AAA football semi-final

The Burnaby school was undefeated until tonight's (Nov. 26) match with GW Graham.

And just like that, the season is over. 

After going 6-0 during the regular season and 2-0 during the playoffs to date, the St. Thomas More Knights dropped their semi-final game at the B.C. AAA senior varsity football championships 27-10 to the GW Graham Grizzlies tonight (Nov. 26). 

The Knights' regular season was impressive, going 6-0 and finishing atop of the central division standings with wins over Mt. Boucherie (38-14), Centennial (24-0), Terry Fox (21-15), Seaquam (29-0), Lord Tweedsmuir (21-14) and a 52-0 thumping of New Westminster. 

They continued their dominance in the playoffs, securing a 36-21 win over Mt. Douglass in the wild-card game. 

They then came out victorious with a three-point (37-34) win over WJ Mouat in the quarter-final, setting up Saturday's match with the Grizzlies. 

At BC Place, the Knights were down 3-0 after the first quarter before coming back to take a 10-3 lead into halftime. 

The Grizzlies would fight back and score a touchdown to tie the game at 10 with 5:53 remaining in the third quarter. 

GW Graham would add another field goal before the end of the quarter and take a 13-10 lead into the fourth. 

With 2:42 to go in the game, the Grizzlies extended the lead with a diving touchdown to go up 20-10. 

They added another late touchdown to seal the victory and a chance to win a second straight provincial title.
