Langley Rams down Kodiaks, again

Coach thinks they could have played better

After a slow start and what coach Jordan McCarty termed “a few uncharacteristic mistakes,” Langley Rams went on to defeat the Prince George Kodiaks 39-17 during a Saturday, Sept. 16 visit to Masich Stadium.

“It was a tough game as they [Kodiaks] were fighting for a playoff spot,” McCarty told the Langley Advance Times.

“As the game went on, we got the ball rolling but overall, we are not satisfied with how we played. This upcoming week and throughout the rest of the season we will display the necessary effort and attitude it takes to compete at the highest level within this conference,” McCarty said.

“If you want to win, you must be at your best in this conference.”

Langley was in front for the entire game, leading 9-0 at the end of the first quarter, 18-3 by the end of the second, 25-10 at the close of the third and 39-17 at the end.
