Langley Stampeders topple White Rock Titans, take over top spot

Langley’s midget football team did much of its damage against White Rock in the second quarter on Sunday.

The Langley Stampeders have clawed to the top of the Vancouver Mainland Football League’s 12-man Midget Division.

A shortened, 28-0 win over the White Rock Titans Sunday at the South Surrey Athletic Park pushed the Stamps to the top of the division, while all but eliminating the Titans from playoff contention.

First quarter action was close, with both defences holding their respective forts.

After the three minute warning of the opening quarter, the Stamps started on their 42 yard line and marched down the field, finishing the drive with a 17 yard pass from quarterback Joss Yanciw to Simon Odong for a touchdown.

The convert was good, closing the quarter with Langley leading 7-0.

In the second quarter, the Stamps took control. Langley’s first major of the quarter came from a 40 yard pass from Yanciw to Odong, again.

A pass interception by Odong ended a Titans drive at the Langley 40 yard line.

The next play was a 35 yard run by Devin Dacosta.

The Titans were penalized on the play for hitting out of bounds and unsportsmanlike conduct, moving the ball to their three yard marker.

With first and goal, Odong was called on again and responded with six points.

The Stamps’ final score of the half was set up by a fumble recovery by Owen Jenkins on the Titans’ 20 yard line.

Soon after, Dacosta scored his second touchdown as the half ended with Langley leading 28-0.

White Rock, unfortunately, was unable to field sufficient players to compete in the second half, therefore,conceding the game to Langley.

It now appears as if the league final playoff spots will  not be determined until the final games of the season.

The Stamps have the luxury of hosting their last two games at McLeod Stadium. Their next home game is Sunday, Nov. 15, versus the Victoria Spartans, who are tied with the Chilliwack Giants in the fight for fourth place.

Opening kickoff is 2:30 p.m.
