Some nasty weather couldn’t slow the first-place Langley Stampeders.
Azuka Okoli burst through the line of scrimmage on the first play of the game, breaking off a 66-yard touchdown run and the rout was on as the midget Stampeders continued their winning ways with a 45-0 victory over the Coquitlam Falcons last Friday night at Coquitlam’s Town Centre Park.
Okoli would add another touchdown on a 30-yard run while Devante Wilson scored on a 19-yard run and Wilson connected with Victor Belanger for a pair of passing touchdowns as the receiver scored on plays of 15 and 29 yards, respectively.
A big key to the victory was the play of the Langley offensive line as Ryan Keiss, Travis Evans, Zack Janzen and Eric Vanderwerff dominated in the trenches, opening holes for the running game and providing their quarterback time to throw.
The remaining points came courtesy of the special teams with Kyle Clarot booting a field goal and Tyler Pickett returning a blocked punt 25 yards for the score.
Owen Jenkins, Kai Sommerville, Harry Sommerville and Chris Derkson spearheaded a great defensive effort.
