Now, theyâ€™re even.
In Vancouver Mainland Football League 12-man bantam action last weekend at Deltaâ€™s John Oliver Park, the visiting Langley Mustangs evened their back-to-back series with the North Delta Longhorns with a hard-fought, thrilling 22-15 victory.
The teams duelled to a 2-2 tie at the end of the first quarter.
Langley scored the first major of the day, on a second quarter interception by Azuka Okoli to take the lead.
The Longhorns responded with a touchdowns of their own to tie the game 9-9 at the end of the first half.
After the break, North Delta scored midway through the third quarter on a long run from scrimmage to take a 15-9 lead into the final quarter.
The Mustangs dug deep over the final 15 minutes.
Langleyâ€™s offensive line of Ryan Kess, Ross Baykey, Joe Nickel, Jacob Rohan and Travis Evans came to the fore, allowing for a strong ground attack that generated a pair of Mustangs touchdowns.
Meanwhile the defence led by Owen Jenkins, Damen Norris, Jeremy Catroppa, Devon Laboucan, and Wes Kraft shut out the leagueâ€™s highest scoring offence with vigorous defensive play.
The win lifts the Mustangs into a tie with the Longhorns and Chilliwack Giants for second place in the division.
Next up for Mustangs are the Abbotsford Falcons on Sunday. Game time at McLeod Athletic Park is 2:30 p.m.
