Langley Mustangs prevail over Spartans

The Victoria Spartans didn’t go down easily, as the Langley Mustangs found out at Westhills Stadium on Sunday.

In Vancouver Mainland Football League bantam division play, the Mustangs clawed to a 7-3 halftime lead before scoring the only 14 points of the second half in a 21-3 victory.

The visitors scored the first points on a touchdown by Azuka Okoli.

Victoria responded later with a field goal as the teams entered halftime with the Mustangs leading by four points.

The Mustangs’ defence, led by Owen Jenkins, held the Spartans scoreless in the third and fourth quarters.

The offence, meanwhile, powered by a strong performance from Langley’s offensive linemen, played a solid ball control ground game in the final half, while out-scoring the opposition 14-0.

Next up for the Mustangs is a visit to Bill Moore Park on Sunday, Sept. 14, for an afternoon game against the Comox Valley Raiders.
