Langley Minor Football’s 12-man Midget Stampeders opened their 2015 season with a convincing 55-0 win against the hometown Raiders in Comox on Sunday.
The scoring opened on Langley’s second possession with a 35 yard passing play from starting quarterback Devante Wilson to receiver Colton Dejong. Stampeders second TD was scored on an eight yard run by Victor Belanger. The first quarter ended with Langley leading 14-0.
The second quarter was all Stampeders. The play of the game was a 60 yard pass and run by Simon Odong into the Comox end zone. The first half wound up with the score 41-0.
Stampeders continued to dominate in the final half scoring on a 20 yard run in the third quarter and a 7 yard pass in the fourth.
Every player on the Stamps performed to expectation. The team left McLeod Athletic Park at 6:30 a.m. and did not return from the Island, until after 10 p.m. in the evening. A long day for these young men.
The Stampeders won convincingly. Stamps have a bye next weekend. Their next game is against the North Surrey Bears on Sunday Sept. 27, at 1:45 p.m. at McLeod Stadium.
