While they came out on the short end of a 12-0 score, the North Langley Bears put in a full effort against Meadow Ridge Gold Knights in peewee football action Saturday at McLeod Stadium.
Another strong defensive performance from the Bears led by Jacob Evans and Jedakai Hurley kept the game close right to the end.
The momentum changed several times and the halftime score was 6-0 for the Knights.
The Bears' offence was having a hard time finding much room to move but Brian Pol and Marcus
Stang had some great blocks and runs.
Jaxon Stebbings made a couple of nice completions and Jesse Nielsen had a few impressive kick returns.
Junior bantam Bears There was little to cheer about during the Bears 54-7 loss to the Abbotsford Falcons Saturday afternoon.
The Falcons used a punishing ground game to hammer a Bears team that was missing several key players to injury.
The Falcons scored touchdowns on each of their first three possessions and never looked back. The lone bright spot for the Bears was Pablo Wigwigan's spectacular 80-yard kickoff return for a touchdown in the second quarter.
Charlie May then connected with Connor Hurley on a nifty pass in the end zone for a successful convert.
Flag Bears The Bears played Ridge Meadows on home turf over weekend.
Langley won its first game 4-1, with Ryan Middleton, Cole Blaschuk, Sam Sieben, and Ben Evans scoring touchdowns. Keane Herd and Tristan Todd helped the defensive line hold off the opposition.
It was a standoff in the second game, with the contest ending in a 2-2 tie.
The Bears Rylan Middleton caught a pass for one touchdown and Tyson Craig ran for the second major.
Kai Blaschuk was solid in snapping the ball.
