Langley Stampeders trample Cloverdale Bengals

Langley Minor Football’s midget-aged squad’s fine season continues.

The Langley Stampeders have charged out of the gates of their 12-man midget football season.

The Stamps posted another win Sunday, blanking the host Cloverdale Bengals 45-0 at Cloverdale Athletic Park.

The win ups Langley’s record to 5-1 in the Vancouver Mainland Football League’s Midget Division.

The Stamps struck quickly, with their initial scoring drive set up by an interception by Craig Clarot.

A 25-yard run by Devon Dacosta was followed with a 30-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Devante Wilson to receiver Simon Odong.

Langley’s second score came off a 45-yard  pass interception and run into the Bengals end zone by defensive back Kyle Clarot.

A productive first quarter was closed out with a 17 yard field goal by Langley’s Nolan McMurchy.

The Stamps continued to dominate in the second quarter, as they marched from their own 45-yard line and completed their drive with a four yard plunge into the end zone by Wilson.

Another long drive from the Stamps end of the field was capped by a toss by Joss Yanciw to Dacosta for a major as the Stamps led 38-0 at halftime.

Third quarter action saw another touchdown tacked on to Langley’s totals, this time with Wilson now playing receiver and catching a pass from Yanciw.

The final frame produced no scoring by either team.

Cloverdale had a good downfield march going but failed on three occasions at the end of the game to hit paydirt from the Stampeder’s 10-yard marker.

Langley’s next challenge will be this Saturday in Coquitlam when they tackle the league-leading Coquitlam Falcons in a battle for first place.
