South Delta Rams tame Langley Mustangs

This past Sunday, the South Delta Rams showed why they are in first place in the Vancouver Mainland Football League’s bantam division.

In 12-man gridiron action, the Rams romped to a convincing 36-6 win over the second place, hometown Mustangs.

Langley’s offence sputtered.

On two separate occasions, with first-down-and-goal-to-go opportunities inside the Rams’ five yard line, the Mustangs were unable to force the ball past the staunch South Delta defence and into the end zone. 

A second quarter injury to quarterback Colton Dejong didn’t help the cause and at halftime, the score was 21-6 for the Rams.

The second half was pretty even, with the Rams picking up a single.

Penalties stung the Mustangs. One infraction negated a long punt return deep into Rams’ territory which would have left Langley in great scoring position. Another harmful penalty wiped out a fumble recovery, returned 40 yards into the South Delta end zone in the second quarter.

The best player on the field was the Rams’ quarterback who ran roughshod over the Langley defence for three individual touchdowns while tossing the ball for an additional two.  

The Mustangs have a chance to prove their mettle against the Rams with a return match this Sunday at Dennison Park.

Kickoff is 10:30 a.m.
