Peewee Bears notch third straight shutout victory

North Langley football teams win one of three weekend contests

The North Langley peewee Bears continue to be a defensive force, pitching their third straight shutout.

The peewee football team blanked the Abbotsford Falcons 30-0 on Saturday.

Quarterback Owen Sieben scored on a one-yard keeper and also connected with Tyson Hoy, Mathieu Gale and Cam Neal on catch-and-run plays for the other three majors.

The offensive line of Ian McRitchie, Cole Hunter, Manny Fotiou, Nicolas Reimer and Daniel Lambert did a great job of creating running lanes on the scoring plays.

Matthew Vandas and Colton Piggott both had interceptions for the defence while Troy Edwards, Hunter Patterson and Caleb Price had key tackles.

And from there, quarterback Nick Lacroix called his own number, punching the ball into the end zone.
