NWPAFL Grand Final: UBC, Vancouver
The Burnaby Eagles team arrived at the UBC with big expectations. The Eagles had won the local series 5 to 2 against their cross town rivals the Vancouver Cougars and also took out the prestigious Kelowna and BC Footy Cups. The Eagles were keen to add one more piece of hardware to the newly built Colin "Handyman" Hilton trophy cabinet. Unfortunately the Eagles were not able to cap of a great season with a premiership. The Burnaby Eagles players and committee would like to congratulate the Vancouver Cougars on their premiership victory.
The Eagles would like to farewell the following team members who will be moving on later this year and will not be able to wear the Eagles yellow and blue in 2008.
