Midget Titans complete comeback

Vancouver Mainland Football League season kicks off

A strong fourth-quarter performance helped the White Rock-South Surrey Titans’ midget team pick up a win in the first week of the Vancouver Mainland Football League season, edging the Coquitlam Falcons 33-21 Sunday.

Through three quarters of play Sunday at South Surrey Athletic Park, the midget Titans trailed the Falcons 21-17 before outscoring their opponents 16-0 in the final frame. The comeback began when Brandon LeMoignan caught a 55-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Cole Meyer, and LeMoignan scored his second TD of the day just one possession later to extend the lead.

Will Watson had the Titans’ other major score, when he picked up a fumble on defence and ran 63 yards into the end zone.

The Titans’ youngest squad, the flag-division crew, were also victorious in Week 1 – they knocked off the North Surrey Ravens 24-18.

White Rock touchdowns were notched by Teran Rai, Nicolas Hein, Lucas Roling and Reid Turner; Turner’s tally was the game-winner.

The peewee Titans won their season-opener, too, with a 20-6 victory over the North Surrey Hawks.

Eduardo Gonzalez led the offence with two touchdowns, and Michael Dowhaniuk added one.

In atom division action, the Titans fell to the North Surrey Lions by a 16-0 score, while the junior bantam team also got shut out in the opening week, losing 26-0 to the North Surrey Eagles.

The atom Titans were led by Rhys Huston, who had a 60-yard run, and Isaiah Edwards, who had a 40-yard gain.

Though they failed to find the end zone, the junior bantam Titans’ offence was sharp at times, too – in the second half led by running back Jaxon MacMillan, and on a 30-yard pass completion from quarterback Aiden Eliis to Owen Dickie.
