Bears ground Falcons
The North Langley Bears had no problem moving the ball — they had 300 yards of total offence — but had troubles finding the end zone.
But thanks to a strong defensive effort, the bantam football team defeated the Abbotsford Falcons 12-6 on Saturday at McLeod Park.
David Fredo scored both North Langley touchdowns — one rushing and the other on a pass from Braeden Pritchard — and the defence came up with four interceptions, three fumble recoveries and a blocked kick.
David Nathan, Adrian Clements, Michael Chan and Tyler Aasen all had interceptions, while Eric Boomars, Kyle Isaacson and Won-Jae Boo had fumble recoveries.
The win improved North Langley to 5-4 in the Valley Community Football League and a win in their season finale will earn them a playoff spot.
The North Langley junior bantam team fell 30-8 to Chilliwack Red Giants. Zander Bailey scored the Bears touchdown on a nice 40-yard run.
