Stamps slay Giants in defensive battle

Langley midget football team comes through with three interceptions

It was a defensive battle with the Langley Stampeders toppling the Chilliwack Giants 10-3.

The two midget football teams hit the field at McLeod Athletic Park on Sunday with points at a premium.

After a scoreless first quarter — where neither team could crack the opponent’s 30-yard line — the Stampeders struck first as they capped off a 70-yard drive with an 11-yard touchdown pass from Joss Yanciw to Simon Odong.

Chilliwack responded with a short field goal to get on the board and they were threatening again at the end of the half until Riley Carter came up with a timely interception to snuff out a drive and allow Langley to retain the lead heading into the locker room.

And after a scoreless third quarter, the Stamps tacked on a field goal to extend their lead to seven points. Chilliwack put together a pair of drives but each were snuffed out by interceptions with both Dalton Delaney and Kyle Clarot coming through with picks.
