The Victoria Spartans didnâ€™t go down easily, as the Langley Mustangs found out at Westhills Stadium on Sunday.
In Vancouver Mainland Football League bantam division play, the Mustangs clawed to a 7-3 halftime lead before scoring the only 14 points of the second half in a 21-3 victory.
The visitors scored the first points on a touchdown by Azuka Okoli.
Victoria responded later with a field goal as the teams entered halftime with the Mustangs leading by four points.
The Mustangsâ€™ defence, led by Owen Jenkins, held the Spartans scoreless in the third and fourth quarters.
The offence, meanwhile, powered by a strong performance from Langleyâ€™s offensive linemen, played a solid ball control ground game in the final half, while out-scoring the opposition 14-0.
Next up for the Mustangs is a visit to Bill Moore Park on Sunday, Sept. 14, for an afternoon game against the Comox Valley Raiders.
