Langley Secondary School Thunderbirds football team maintained their grip on first place in the AA Coastal division, and managed to stretch their undefeated streak to four, following a hard-fought 13-7 win over the Robert Bateman Timberwolves on Friday night, Oct. 15 before a hometown audience at McLeod stadium.
T-birds had to withstand a late-in-the-game surge by the wolves to do it.
TBirds win a nailbiter with a last-minute red-zone stand to stay undefeated! Great plays offense and defense both ways. Thank you to @LangleySS #TBirdsNation and @BatemanFootball fans who showed up to rock MAP and support their teams in a game that lived up to its billing. pic.twitter.com/WJTTZl7HnJ

By the half, Langley was leading 13-0, but Bateman would allow no more, keeping the Thunderbirds offense at bay for the rest of the game.
Bateman got a touchdown in the third quarter, then late in the fourth, the wolves got as far as the Thunderbirds 15-yard line, but no further.
Langley has four wins in a row to lead the nine-team Coastal division, just ahead of the previously undefeated Timberwolves, who had a four-game streak going prior to their Langley visit.
