Langley Rams scored all three player of the week awards for week 6 in the B.C. Football Conference.

The Rams defeated the Kamloops Broncos 70-24 on Aug. 31 at McLeod Athletic Park, in the only junior football game of the week. The win improved Langley to 4-1 while Kamloops fell to 3-2.

Running back Mario Narte was offensive player of the week after scoring three touchdowns on 13 carries, finishing with 156 yards rushing as well. It was the first time he has won the weekly honour.

Defensive player of the week went to defensive back Clovis Lumeka, who had a pick-six, taking the interception 77 yards for the touchdown. He also finished with four solo tackles and one pass knockdown. It was also his first weekly honour.

Kicker Steve Thomas won the special teams player of the week for the second time.

Thomas was two-for-two on field goals, nine-for-nine on convert attempts and also scored a single on an 85-yard kick-off.

The Rams are back in action on Sept. 6 as they travel to Kelowna's Apple Bowl to face the Okanagan Sun in a battle of 4-1 teams.
