The White Rock-South Surrey Titans are one game away from a B.C. midget football championship, after dispatching the Nanaimo Redmen 37-8 in semifinals Sunday afternoon in Langley.
The No. 1-seeded Titans will now face off against their longtime Lower Mainland rivals, the second-place Coquitlam Falcons, for the provincial championship trophy this Sunday, 4:30 p.m., at Langley’s McLeod Park.
The Titans have yet to lose a game this season, going 10-0 in the Vancouver Mainland Football League regular season before rolling through the playoff rounds.
Sunday against Nanaimo, White Rock won thanks to a defence that held the Redmen to just one touchdown – the Island side also scored a single point on a missed 40-yard field goal that the Titans chose not to return.
Offensively, a number of Titans had big days. Running back Raymond Calderwood had two touchdown runs – the second of which was a 70-yard effort – while Brandon LeMoignan had two TD catches.
Andrew Darcovich had a 43-yard touchdown catch, and Daniel Mendoza had a field goal in the first quarter.
A week prior to the win over the Redmen, the Titans defeated the Victoria Spartans in quarter-final action.
