The North Langley Bears peewee football team is winless no more.
The Bears got into the win column for the first time this year with a 6-0 victory over the Meadow Ridge Blue Knights.
It was an extremely wet game but thanks to dominant line play by Callum Middleton, Ayden Holloway, Chris Morrison, Ian Courtney, and Noah Courtney, the Bears were able to establish a strong running game.
North Langley's lone touchdown came midway through the second quarter.
From there the Bears' defence was able to shut down the Knights, with Shaine Hoy providing the highlight with a pass interception.
North Langley atom Bears The Bears romped past the Mission 9ers 33-6 in a rain and mud-filled game Saturday morning.
North Langley jumped out to a quick lead courtesy of a 55-yard touchdown run by Owen Sieben, behind the blocking of Nic Riemer and Ian McRitchie.
Offensive linemen James Johnson, Daniel Lambert, and Taylor Bear
cleared running lanes for Troy Brown's long second quarter run that set up a Tyson Hoy touchdown.
Jordan Williams, Mathieu Gale, and Koan Zieger also scored touchdowns for the Bears.
After a tough first series, the Bears defence turned in a dominating performance led by the tackles of Semir Hasic, Jayden Bailey, and Manny Fotiou.
Ezekial Bodill, Joshua Caljouw, and Yianni Sergiannidis teamed up to make key stops while Caleb Price and Annika Key recovered fumbles to get the Bears' offence back on the field.
The North Langley atoms are back in action this Saturday, when they host Meadow Ridge Gold at McLeod Stadium.
North Langley junior bantam Bears A sodden field in Maple Ridge was the site of the JB Bears' 13-12 win over the Meadow Ridge Knights Saturday afternoon.
With the rain coming down so hard, the lights on the field had to be turned on.
Both teams were forced to rely primarily on their running game.
Each team scored a pair of touchdowns on the ground with Pablo Wigwigan reaching pay dirt twice for North Langley.
Despite the weather, Bears quarterback Jacob Stebbings managed to complete long passes to Alex Henderson and Michael Huggan.
Charlie May also hauled in a pass from Stebbings for a successful convert that provided the eventual margin of victory.
Standouts on defence were Eric Hawkins, who had a string of tackles late in the first half, and Jacob Price, who made a hit so hard it was apparently audible in downtown Langley.
North Langley flag Bears The host Mission 9ers faced the Bears on a very rainy Saturday.
North Langley Yellow played Mission Black with the 9ers winning 2-0.
North Langley Red faced Mission Red and although the 9ers won 3-2, the Bears gave it their all.
Jesse Davison and Tyson Craig both scored touchdowns for the North Langley squad.
Evan Hoy did an excellent job ripping flags while Ronan Langford was very effective snapping the ball.
Langley Yellow played a second game against Mission Red in which the Bears' Ben Evans and Cole Blaschuk both scored touchdowns, but the 9ers were victorious in a 3-2 win.
