This past Sunday, the South Delta Rams showed why they are in first place in the Vancouver Mainland Football Leagueâ€™s bantam division.
In 12-man gridiron action, the Rams romped to a convincing 36-6 win over the second place, hometown Mustangs.
Langleyâ€™s offence sputtered.
On two separate occasions, with first-down-and-goal-to-go opportunities inside the Ramsâ€™ 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 didnâ€™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 Ramsâ€™ 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 Ramsâ€™ 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.
