Bandits’ Buckley helps steal late win

Touchdown run on game’s final play sends Langley flag football team to victory

Behind the lead blocking of Kyle Rowe and Mathew Crontenko, Colten Buckley galloped 40 yards into the end zone on the final play of the game to send the Langley Bandits to a 12-9 victory over the Westside Warriors on Sunday in flag football action.

The Bandits were able to get one more chance on offence after a game-saving flag by Kai Verbicky.

Sammy Fritz also had a strong game with his blocking for Langley.


The Langley junior bantam Outlaws were led by a four touchdown performance from quarterback Adam Rodentstein in a 48-22 victory last week (Sept. 18) over the North Surrey Eagles at McLeod Athletic Park.

Jacob Jelic and Connor Desnoyers each ran in a touchdown.

Stryker Roloff was successful on all six converts.

A big story in the game  was the Outlaws’ offensive line — Ethan Croome, Tysen Bright, Tysen Tombe, Mateo Ciampellitti, Kody Brooks and Devon Laboucan — stood strong and opened up holes for the run game.

On defence, Jackson Omelaniec, Nick McCrory, Brendan Anderlini, Joe Nickel, Thomas Maki and Roloff came up with some big stops. Maki also had a quarterback sack.


The Langley Cowboys run game could not be stopped as they ran for more than 400 yards and six touchdowns in a 37-6 victory over the Royal City Hyacks in New Westminster.

Running back T.J. Fujimura had two touchdowns and 213 yards while quarterback Jack Laurin ran for 173 yards and another three scores. Anthony Ghent had the team’s other touchdown.

For the defence and special teams, Jesse Tomica had both a kick-off and fumble recovery, while Tyden Currie had a kick-off recovery.

Erin McBride also came through with a quarterback sack while the defence was consistently delivering gang tackles.

Andrew Steinman, Nick Gerussi and Ghent all had solid games.


The Langley midget Stampeders blasted the Comox Valley Raiders 61-0 on Sunday in Comox.

Wonjae Boo scored twice while Steve Smith returned an interception 93 yards for the touchdown. Smith also had well over 100 yards on punt returns.

Ryan Porteous and Reagan Doucette also rushed for touchdowns while quarterback Stephen Legare connected with Gurjot Bains on a touchdown reception.

Ben Ferguson was also on the receiving end off a couple of Legare passes, which kept the chains moving.

Defensively the Raiders struggled to move the ball. The running game was shut down by defensive linemen Jacob Cook and Marcel Mirek along with linebackers Dylan Twells and Chris Ramsden.
