North Langley Bears rally past Raiders
David Fredo’s fourth quarter touchdown run was the difference as the North Langley Bears rallied for a 13-8 victory over the Richmond Raiders.
The Valley Community Football League midget division rivals squared off at Richmond’s Minoru Park on Sunday.
The touchdown capped off a big game for Fredo, who surpassed more than 100 yards in receiving/rushing.
The Raiders were driving for the go-ahead touchdown but the North Langley secondary came up with some great pass coverage which allowed Chris Baerg to sack the Richmond quarterback for a huge loss.
The Bears other touchdown came from Mook Kim on a first quarter run.
The North Langley defence came up big on the game, consistently pressuring the Raiders quarterback. Barry Dugama, Fredley Garrett, Nathan Hutton and Baerg all had quarterback sacks while Dugama also forced an intentional grounding penalty.
James Aalhus and Samuel Cleary both had picks while Harsahib Sandhu came up with a fumble recovery.
