The U16 B.C. Junior Premier Baseball League teams squared off at McLeod Park on June 26.

Matthew Whieldon and Matthew Reston both belted doubles and Whieldon also drove in a pair of runs.

Justin Lawrence, Mason Verge and Steven Young had the other Langley RBIs.

On the mound, Justin Atkinson and Mitchell Kennedy combined to throw a four-hitter.

Atkinson earned the win, pitching four and one-third innings with six strikeouts, before giving way to Kennedy in the fifth inning.

The win, Langley's 10th straight, improved the Blaze to a league-best 23-5 and a 3.5 game lead on the North Shore Junior Twins.

The third-place Cardinals fell to 15-10.
