Midget Titans stay perfect on gridiron
The White Rock-South Surrey Titans midget football team kept its undefeated record intact Sunday, but it was close.
The Titans edged the Meadow Ridge Knights 15-9 in Maple Ridge, improving to 3-0 in the Vancouver Mainland Football League.
Alex Lane had two catches for 105 total yards and a touchdown, and Riley Born scored the team’s other TD. Born’s scoring run – which put the Titans ahead with just three minutes to play – was set up after a 32-yard reception from Sapreet Chahal, who also added a 22-yard fourth-quarter reception.
On defence, White Rock held the Knights to just one touchdown, led by Pete Kilberg, who had 10 tackles, a sack and a forced fumble. Tyler Leader also had a big day, with 11 tackles.
In atom action, the Titans edged the South Delta Rams 32-22 at Delta’s Dennison Park.
The Titans were led by Beckham Dickie, who scored all five of the team’s touchdowns.
White Rock’s peewee, flag and junior bantam football squads both lost their games Sunday, with the flag team falling 11-6 to the South Delta Rams and the peewees and junior bantams losing 19-6 and 24-0, respectively, both against South Delta.
All Titans teams are at home Sunday, beginning at 9 a.m. The association will also host its annual Titans Tailgate Party from 11:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. in the Semiahmoo Secondary parking lot.
