Langley Mustangs tame North Surrey Tigers

There’s no slowing down the Langley Mustangs these days.

Sunday’s Vancouver Mainland Football League 12-man bantam game at Surrey’s Bear Creek Park saw the Mustangs stretch their winning streak to three games, downing the host North Surrey Tigers by a 28-7 score.

The game was extremely tight through the first three quarters of football, with the Mustangs carrying a tenuous 14-7 advantage into the final stanza.

Quarterback Colten Dejong cranked up the action in the final quarter.

He orchestrated an aerial attack which cumulated in touchdowns by Yunjae Boo and Azuka Okoli.

Jacob Smart had an outstanding game, making eight solo tackles while assisting on several others.

Damen Norris and Damon Minhas added to the strong defensive showing with two sacks each.

The win improves the Mustangs record to 6-1 as they moved into second place in the eight-team league standings, two points behind the undefeated, division-leading South Delta Rams.

Next up for the Mustangs is a game against the visiting Cowichan Bulldogs.

Opening kickoff this Sunday is 2:30 p.m. at McLeod Stadium.
