An inability to get the ball in the end zone cost the North Langley Bears, who lost 12-0 to Meadow Ridge Gold in peewee football at McLeod Athletic Park on Saturday.

The Bears had a strong defensive performance, led by Jacob Evans and Jedakai Hurley, who helped keep the game close.

Brian Pol and Marcus Stang had some nice runs, but for the most part, there was little room to run.

Jaxon Stebbings was able to move the ball through the air, while Jesse Nielsen had provided the offence with good field position thanks to some impressive kick returns.

The Abbotsford Falcons used a punishing ground game to hammer the injury-depleted North Langley Bears 54-7 in junior bantam football at McLeod Athletic Park on Saturday.

Abbotsford scored on their first three possessions and never looked back.

The Bears offence couldn’t muster much of an attack and the team’s touchdown came from special teams.

The lone bright spot for the Bears was Pablo Wigwigan’s spectacular 80-yard kick-off return for a touchdown in the second quarter. Charlie May connected with Connor Hurley for the successful convert.
