Pair of Langley Rams recognized by BCFC for dominant outings

What a Saturday it was for the Langley Rams, and more specifically, two players who were at the top of their games against the VI Raiders.

The Rams romped to a 53-14 win over the Nanaimo squad at McLeod Stadium, to improve their record to 6-2.

Going into the game, the teams took turns beating each other during their season series, scoring 88 points apiece in the previous two games combined. But the rubber match was all Rams, thanks to contributions across the board.

But the rubber match was all Rams, thanks to contributions across the board.

In particular, Rams Nathan Lund and Marcus Brown had fantastic games and as a result, were named B.C. Football Conference Players of the Week for week nine of the regular season.

Lund was named Offensive Player of the Week.

The athletic running back carried the ball 11 times for 55 yards and scored a pair of touchdowns.

He also caught two balls for 73 yards, and scored a major.  

He had 128 all-purpose yards and three touchdown.  

Lund becomes the third Ram to earn “BC Lions Offensive Player of the Week honours.”  The others were Dylan Tucker (week four), and Mario Narte (week six).

The BCFC Defensive Player of the Week went to Brown, a linebacker who helped the Rams defence hold the Raiders to just 33 yards on the ground.   

One of the main reasons for the Rams’ shutdown success was the play of the 18-year-old Brown, who made three solo tackles, one assisted tackle, forced and recovered a fumble, had a knock down and intercepted a pass.

This is the Winnipeg native’s first award this year.

The Rams have two games remaining in their season, and both are on the road.

This Sunday, they travel to Kelowna’s Apple Bowl to take on the 7-1, league-leading Okanagan Sun.

Kickoff is 1 p.m.

The Rams’ final game before the post-season is Saturday, Oct. 4, when they visit Exhibition Stadium to take on the Valley Huskers. Game time is 7 p.m.
