Four Bears scored touchdowns including Tyson Hoy with a catch-and-run; Owen Sieben with a quarterback keep from the one yard line behind solid blocking from Ian McRitchie, Cole Hunter, Manny Fotiou, Nicolas Reimer, and Daniel Lambert; Matthew Gail on a throwing play and; Cam Neal with an impressive 50 yard catch-and-run touchdown to end the game.

The Bears’ defence was solid, as well.

Matthew Vandas and Colton Piggott both had interceptions while Troy Edwards, Hunter Patterson, and Caleb Price all made key tackles.

Bantam Bears

A North Langley bantam team lost for the first time since 2013 as the Bears fell 28-10 to the North Surrey Tigers.

The Bears’ only touchdown was set up by a 22-yard kickoff return by Andrew Canning that gave the North Langley great field position on the Tigers’ 43-yard line.

After a couple of impressive runs by Pablo Wigwigan followed by an 11-yard reception by Eh Hset Ta, quarterback Nick Lacroix took the ball into the Tigers’ end zone from two yards out.

However, that and a 10-yard field goal by David Wegert was all the offence the Bears could manage on the afternoon.

The Bears defence was solid in a losing cause as Ser Ler Pwe Htoo and K’Paw Shee Htoo both had interceptions and Connor Hurley picked up his third fumble recovery of the season.

Jacob Ronald, Alex Yoo and Jacob Price all had multiple tackles for North Langley.

Atom Bears

In a battle of defences, the Chilliwack Giants Blue eked past the Bears by an 8-0 score.

During the Giants first possession, Markus MacLeod set the tone for the Bears by recording the first tackle of the game.

Other key defensive plays in the first half included a tackle by  Ryan Heutink and a quarterback sack by Ben Evan.

The Bears offense made progress during their third possession, behind strong blocking by Gideon Bodill springing Ryan Middleton for two runs up the middle.

In the second half,  Ronan Langford joined the defensive line keep the Giants at bay.

The Bears offence then gained traction with seven successful plays including a pass completion by Evans to Evan Hoy for a first down.

In the fourth quarter the Giants ran in for the only touchdown of the game and tacked on a conversion.

North Langley’s Jesse Davison had an impressive fourth quarter with an offensive charge up the middle and two big tackles on the defence.
