In a battle of unbeaten teams, it was the Langley Junior Blaze who emerged with their perfect record intact.

The U16 baseball team handed the North Delta Junior Blue Jays a pair of defeats, 7-2 and 3-1, on Saturday afternoon at McLeod Park.

Langley improved to 5-0 while the Blue Jays fell to 5-2 in the B.C. Junior Premier Baseball League standings.

In the opener, Dominic Baptista blasted a three-run home run while Cole Cantelon had a two-run double. Broden Bydeweg had the other RBI.

On the mound, Yi-Fan Pan went the distance, allowing a pair of runs and four hits over seven innings.

Langley received another solid seven innings of work from Jake Polancic in game two as he allowed just one unearned run and five hits.

Aiden Mordecai had an RBI double while Jesse Unger had an RBI single.

The Blaze will look to continue their winning ways when they host the White Rock Junior Tritons tomorrow (Wednesday) at McLeod Park. Game time is 6:30 p.m.
