Midget Titans improve record to 5-0

The White Rock-South Surrey Titans stretched their record to a perfect 5-0 Sunday, with a 27-14 road win over the Cloverdale Bengals (1-4).

The White Rock-South Surrey Titans stretched their record to a perfect 5-0 Sunday, with a 27-14 road win over the Cloverdale Bengals (1-4).

Brandon LeMoignan led the Titans with two touchdowns – one one a five-yard run and another on a 52-yard pass reception – and on defence, he also forced a Cloverdale fumble on the Titans’ one-yard line; the loose ball was scooped up by Levan Elva and ran back the other way for a TD.

After LeMoignan’s first touchdown to give White Rock the early lead, Riley Cantner made it a two-score lead on a 21-yard pass.

The Titans’ offence sputtered at time throughout the half, as they were thwarted by a strong Cloverdale defence, but the Bengals’ offence was not much better – at one point the teams traded fumbles on back-to-back possessions.

The Titans’ next score came courtesy of its defence, as defensive back Willie Watson intercepted a Cloverdale pass and ran it into the end zone.

And though the team’s offence struggled, the defenders were solid.

Peter Kilberg had one sack and one pass deflection, Harrison Allen and Mike Filice each had a number of tackles-for-losses – and Allen added one fumble recovery – while Caelan Dennis, Connor Burchartz and Gury Chahal each had sacks.

Aaron Jaehrlich also had a fumble recovery, on the Bengals’ first possession of the game.

White Rock-South Surrey’s flag-division crew also picked up a win Sunday, beating the Coquitlam Crushers 10-0 at Mackin Park.

Lucas Rolling got the Titans on the board with a safety in the first half, giving them a 2-0 lead, and Terran Rai returned the second-half kickoff all the way to the end zone to extend the lead.

Reid Turner added another score for White Rock, and Lucas Roger Wilson converted it.

White Rock’s three other teams were not as lucky Sunday, all suffering losses to Vancouver Mainland Football League rivals.

The atom Titans were bounced 44-0 by the Cloverdale Panthers, while the peewees also lost to Cloverdale, falling 14-8 to the Bobcats.

Walker Erickson led the Panthers, scoring three touchdowns and kicking a two-point convert. Terrel Jones added two touchdowns and three converts, and Taran Birdi caught a pass for the sixth major. On defense Harshaad Jouhal recovered an onside kick, Kurtis Smythe and Jones both recovered Titans’ fumbles and Jaeden Reid made some touchdown saving tackles.

In junior bantam action, the Titans lost 50-6 to the South Delta Rams at Dennison Park. Kurtis Nicholas scored White Rock’s lone touchdown, on a 35-yard run.

Elsewhere on the junior bantam circuit, the Cloverdale Cougars lost 25-24 to the Burnaby Lions.

Two touchdowns from Drey Blair and one each from Lukas Stevens and Bishop Francis accounted for the Cougars scoring. Highlights on defence included an interception by Victor Belanger, a fumble recovery by Jaden Wutke, and a quarterback sack by Reece McGowan.

Other standouts on defence were Bruce Balfour, Andrew Murison and Mackenzie Allinson.

In bantam action, the Cloverdale Leopards lost 35-6 to the North Surrey Tigers.

Quarterback Carlos Alvaro scored the Leopards touchdown on a one-yard run, a play set up by a 25-yard pass from quarterback Gurjot Bains to Anoop Nahal. Punter David Dinbandhu and centre Landon Wisheart played strong games, and Krishneal Dular had the tackle of the game.

All Titans teams play on home turf this weekend, with a full slate of games on tap for South Surrey Athletic Park, beginning with a flag division game at 9 a.m.
