Stamps stomp Timbermen

Langley midget football team dominant on offence, defence in rout of Cowichan

It was a perfect mix of offence and defence for the Langley Stampeders.

The midget football team scored five touchdowns, while the defence did not allow the host Cowichan Timbermen to get any traction on offence.

The end result was a 34-7 Langley victory on Sunday at Duncan’s McAdam Field.

The Stamps got a pair of touchdowns apiece from Sheldon Gangloff and Kevin Dacosta — they both scored once along the ground and once through the air.

The other touchdown came when Devante Wilson connected with Simon Odong on a TD pass, one of three Wilson threw in the game.

Langley also controlled the game in the trenches along both the offensive and defensive lines.

On offence, the Stampeders kept their quarterback clean, giving him the time to make his throws while also creating nice running lanes for their backs.

The defensive line produced a couple of sacks while the Stampeders offensive line kept Wilson clean all game long. And the Stamps defensive backfield also came up with several interceptions to snuff out Cowichan drives.

The lone Timbermen touchdown came on special teams as Cowichan scored on a kick-off return to make the score 21-7.
