Three White Rock-South Surrey Titans’ squads earned victories on the football field Sunday, with a fourth losing a nailbiter by just two points.
The peewee Titans had the day’s biggest victory, beating the North Surrey Cardinals 38-6.
The Titans, who trailed 6-0 early in the game before storming back with 38 unanswered points, were led by Michael Dowhaniuk, who had touchdown runs of five, 51 and six yards as well as a 60-yard interception return for a score.
Thomas Van Egmond also had a six-yard rushing touchdown – and a number of other big plays in the game – and Eduardo Gonzalez kicked four point-after conversions.
Defensively, the team was led by Noah Brown, Dillon Miolla, Lucas Frers, Jarod Roberson, Lucas Biffart and Tyrese Jeys-Morrison.
The Titans edged South Delta 10-8 Sunday, thanks in large part to the kicking ability of Lucas Rogers-Wilson.
Rogers-Wilson converted both Titans’ touchdowns to give the Peninsula side the win. Running backs Lucas Rolling and Teran Rai also performed well on offence for the Titans, while linemen Ethan Olive and Andrew Westman also had strong games. On defence, the team was led by Ili Djordevic and Brody Walton.
A late touchdown by the Langley Broncos was all that came between the Titans and a victory Sunday; a TD with two minutes left gave the Broncos a 38-36 win.
White Rock had the lead early – they led 14-6 in the first quarter and 22-14 near the end of the second – on touchdowns from Kulsher Randhawa, who had a two-yard TD run, and two scores from Isaiah Edwards.
Edwards added a third touchdown in the third quarter, which tied the score at 30-30, but Langley battled back to win.
The White Rock-South Surrey Titans proved again why they’re one of the Vancouver Mainland Football League’s top teams, with a 30-14 win over the Langley Stampeders.
The Titans had an 8-0 lead after the first quarter, on a TD from Peter Kilberg and a punt from Riley Cantner, which sailed through the end zone for a single point.
In the second, quarterback Cole Meyer connected with Andrew Darcovich on an 11-yard TD pass, and the duo hooked up twice more later in the game, once on a 60-yard touchdown and also on a 45-yard score.
Defensively, Mike Bouchard, Jacob Snow and Shayne Spencer had one fumble recovery apiece to go with a number of tackles.
