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.


The North Langley bantam Bears were handed a rare loss, falling 28-10 to the North Surrey Tigers.

The Bears lone points were a group effort.

Andrew Canning gave the team great field position on a kick-off return, Pablo Wigwigan advanced the ball into the red zone with a couple of nice runs and then Eh Hset Ta got the team to the two-yard line off an 11-yard reception. And from there, quarterback Nick Lacroix called his own number, punching the ball into the end zone.

David Wegert had the other points for the Bears on a short field goal.

Ser Ler Pwe Htoo and K’Paw Shee Htoo both had interceptions for the defence while Connor Hurley recovered a fumble.

Jacob Ronald, Alex Yoo and Jacob Price all had multi-tackle games.


The North Langley atom Bears could not muster any offence, falling 8-0 to the Chilliwack Giants Blue on Saturday.

The game was scoreless until the fourth quarter when Chilliwack broke through for the only points.

Defensive highlights included Ryan Heutink batting down a pass, Ben Evans notching a quarterback sack  and strong play from Ronan Langford along the defensive line. Jesse Davison delivered a pair of big tackles.

Offensively, Ryan Middleton had a couple of nice runs thanks to some strong blocking from Gideon Bodill, while Evan Hoy caught a pass from Evans and turned it into a first down.
