White Rock Titans pitch pair of shutouts
A trio of White Rock-South Surrey Titans teams won on the football field last weekend – and by wide margins, too.
In atom division action, the Titans’ offence ran roughshod over the Burnaby Lions, en route to a 64-0 victory, while the peewee Titans pitched a shutout of their own, winning 49-0 over Burnaby.
The midget Titans came close to making it a three-shutout day, but gave up a single point in a 42-1 win over the Richmond Raiders at Minoru Park.
In the atom Titans’ rout over Burnaby, the Peninsula sqaud was led by Isiah Edwards, who had two first-quarter touchdowns and three total on the day, and Rhys Huston, who also had three scores.
Other touchdowns were tallied by Taeo Maisonville, who had two, and Jay Mather.
On defence, Marcus Cumberworth recovered a fumble, and Alisha Jeys-Morrison and Michael Giustino also made big plays defensively.
There were a handful of highlight-reel plays in the peewee’s victory, too. Eduardo Gonzalez had an 85-yard touchdown as well as a 55-yard punt-return TD. He also kicked five point-after converts and also hit on a 21-yard field goal.
Michael Dowhaniuk had two touchdowns – on 35- and 40-yard plays – and Jaxon Russell scored a seven-yard touchdown on a quarterback bootleg play.
Rounding out the action was a 55-yard TD from Noah Brown.
Rounding out the Sunday action, the flag-division Titans were edged 3-0 by the Richmond Raiders, and White Rock-South Surrey beat Richmond 7-6 in junior bantam action.
This weekend, all teams will be playing at home, as part of Titans Day.
