North Langley Bears topple Giants 38-21

Pablo Wigwigan rushes for three touchdowns as junior bantam Bears beat Chilliwack

North Langley Bears' Caleb Nielsen breaks a Chilliwack tackle during junior bantam football at McLeod Park on Saturday.

The junior bantam North Langley Bears topped the Chilliwack Giants 38-21 in a highly entertaining game Saturday afternoon at McLeod Athletic Park in Langley.

Both offenses were able to move the ball but the North Langley running attack proved nearly unstoppable due to a dominant performance by the Bears offensive line.  Pablo Wigwigan was the Bears main offensive weapon running for 225 yards and three touchdowns.

Connor Hurley also scored twice on the ground with Caleb Nielson running for the fifth Bears touchdown.

An opportunistic Bears defense forced five Chilliwack turnovers making it difficult for the Giants to sustain much momentum on offense.

Hurley led the way picking off two Giants passes and recovering a fumble, while Damon Limoges and Ryan Taylor also recovered fumbles for the Bears.
