It was a great weekend, all-around, for North Langley Football Association teams.
The Bears’ atom team fell to a powerful Abbotsford squad, but on the flip side, North Langley’s peewee, junior bantam, and midget squads rolled to impressive victories.
The Bears showed a lot of heart despite falling to last season’s atom division champion, Abbotsford Falcons by a 38-12 score at McLeod Athletic Park (MAP).
The Bears bounced back from a tough loss in week one to shut out the Abbotsford Black Falcons 37-0 on a wet MAP field Saturday.
North Langley’s defence was outstanding, with Brody Hunter, Jesse Davison, Lucca Patterson, and Talon Schroeder leading the way. Rowen Engele, Aiden McMurtry, and Patterson all had quarterback sacks.
The Bears offence was on fire. Ben Evans set the pace with a game-opening, 65-yard kick return touchdown and the Bears didn’t look back.
Evans added another running touchdown in the game. The Bears finished with six touchdowns , including two from Damon Bernemann and one each from Lachlan MacInnes and Lucas Kinch.
The Bears battled to a 22-14 win over the host Meadow Ridge Knights on Saturday.
As the clock ticked down to the final three minutes of the fourth quarter, the Bears managed to grind out one last touchdown, snapping a 14-14 tie and giving them the lead for good as the game drew to a close.
The Kodiaks dominated the Westside Warriors in Vancouver, striding to a 40-0 win.
The Kodiaks dominated early with Ethan Bernardin and Caleb Nelson scoring twice while other touchdowns were added by Luke Chalk and Jacob Ronald with the latter’s being a fumble recovery in the end zone after a botched punt attempt by Westside.
lmf midget Stampeders
The Stamps moved to 2-0 after beating the North Surrey Bears 36-21 Friday at Bear Creek Park in Surrey.
The Stampeders defence harassed the Surrey quarterback all game, with sacks by Joe Nicole, Kai Sommerville, Colten Dejong and Harry Somerville.
Joshua Fletcher and Kofi Twumasi had an interception each, while Leatham Bright, Twumasi, Dejong, and Stryker Roloff led the way with five solo tackles each. Owen Jenkins, Jacob Smart, and Nickel posted four tackles each, and Pandeep Hayer had three takedowns.
On offence, the Warriors couldn’t Azuka Okoli, who chewed up 200 yards of real estate.
Stamps quarterback Shawn Lal threw for 75 yards, connecting with Chavis Spencer (50 yards receiving), Sheldon Gangloff (15 yards), and Smart (10 yards).
Touchdowns were scored by Okoli with a pair, Jenkins, Gangloff, and Spencer.
