Facing the same opponent for a second consecutive week, the North Langley Bears were once again able to pitch a shutout, blanking the Meadow Ridge Gold Knights 18-0.

Marcus Stang led the Bears offensive attack with 56 yards rushing and a pair of touchdowns.

The other touchdown came courtesy of Jordan Williamson, as the quarterback scored on a one-yard keeper.

Jedakai Hurley finished with 50 yards rushing.

The Bears defence was dominant as they held the Knights to a net gain of 27 yards. Connor Bernardin set the tone in the first quarter, as he tackled a ball carrier for a 14-yard loss.

Callum Middleton and Nicholas Reimer both had big games with drive-ending tackles. Middleton also had a fumble recovery.

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.

The junior bantam football game was played in Chilliwack last Friday night.

Evan Rees was named player of the game after a solid game rushing the ball, and recovering a Giants fumble on defence.

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.
