Bears run past 9ers 34-12

North Langley junior bantam football team finishes regular season at 8-2

Strong winds and rain which caused for some poor field conditions forced both the North Langley Bears to turn to their ground game.

And that played right into the hands of the North Langley junior bantam football team as Pablo Wigwigan carried the ball 11 times for more than 200 yards and three touchdowns as the Bears beat the Mission 9ers 34-12 on Saturday.

Quarterback Jacob Stebbings also had a big day running for 89 yards and scoring two touchdowns of his own and Charlie May successfully kicked two converts to round out the North Langley scoring.

On defence, Damon Limoges turned in a strong performance with several key tackles as well as forcing a fumble late in the game and Reid MacTaggart recovered two fumbles for the Bears defence.

The Bears finished the regular season at 8-2 and will host the Abbotsford White Falcons in a playoff game at McLeod Park on Saturday at noon.
