The Valley Peewee Bulldogs may not have won a provincial championship in 2012, but that doesn’t mean they didn’t have a successful season.
The peewees finished the regular season with a 6-2 record, 235 points scored and just 93 points allowed, then were upset in the playoffs, losing 12-8 to a Truro team that Valley had soundly defeated 37-14 in the season opener.
The Peewee Bulldogs officially wrapped up their season by handing out their year-end team and individual awards.
The Defensive MVP award went to Kyle Chappus, the Offensive MVP to Jayden Simmonds, and the Special Teams MVP to Kaleb Winter.
Dyton Blackett won the Most Valuable Lineman award.
The ‘Bulldog’ Award for the player who, according to head coach Kevin Hayes, “exemplifies what a Bulldog should be,” for team spirit and commitment, was presented to Ethan Sperling.
Stacey Sperling and Donna Cornelius shared a Volunteer Parent award.
All five recipients of player awards, and many others who could not be recognized formally, played a part in a successful season and a successful team effort.
