The North Langley Bears improved to 3-0 after an impressive 41-1 victory over the Cloverdale Leopards in bantam football on Sunday.

The Bears used their legs for the victory as four different running backs found the end zone, led by Zander Bailey and Treven Baarts, who had a pair of scores apiece.

Nick Lacroix scored on a spectacular 42-yard run and Connor Hurley rounded things out on a 24-yard quarterback keeper which went for a touchdown.

Kicker Charlie May made five of his six convert attempts and also pinned the Leopards deep in their own territory with his kick-offs.

The Bears defence nearly had a shutout, only surrendering a single point on a missed field goal. Jake Evans and Pablo Wigwigan led the defence.

A solid effort wasn’t enough as the North Langley junior bantam Bears fell 34-0 to the Chilliwack Giants.

Joey Yeomans, Jacob Thorpe and Rees also teamed up for a big quarterback sack while Jacob Ronald and Brodie Tarling helped keep the Chilliwack offence at bay in the early going.

Brandon Brynjolfson, Ethan Berardin and Trevor Paulenz had some success moving the ball for the offence.
