FINAL: 11.09.18 Friday Night Lights Subway Bowl Round 1 edition – Varsity Letters’ B.C. high school football report

LANGLEY — Welcome to the second season. The Subway Bowl playoffs opened on six fronts at both the Triple-A and Double-A tiers on Friday and we’ve got reports from all six games. Five more game follow Saturday.
