2015 VMFL/VCFL Starbowl showcases community football talent

The 2015 VMFL/VCFL Starbowl was hosted by the Valley Community Football League under mostly sunny skies at Exhibition Park, Chilliwack on Saturday, April 25.  Thanks to the hard work and effort of VCFL President Chel Sanghera and her volunteers, as well as Starbowl coordinator, Gordon Francis, the large enthusiastic crowds were treated to three highly entertaining games in the 9-man Bantam, 12-man Bantam and Midget Divisions. The games were all broadcast online and the hard-hitting action was enhanced by a large video screen that provided replays of all the significant action. The integrated team format was applied to all divisions, with each team representing a mix of VMFL and VCFL players and coaching staffs.  Game award winners were selected for each game by VMFL Director Kevin Parks.
