The White Rock-South Surrey Titans peewee team won big in Langley during their first outing of the season last month.

The team consisting of 10- and 11-year-olds took first place at the Langley Minor Football League Golden Helmet Tournament held at McLeod Stadium Aug. 20.

In four games, the Titans outscored their opponents 48-6.

Eduardo Gonzalez, 11, led the way with four touchdowns. Tight-end Ethan Figueroa, full-back Daniel Damron and running backs Johnny Sutherland and Noah Brown (all 11) also contributed points.

Gonzalez was also a defensive standout along with 11-year-old defensive half-backs Jarod Roberson and Tyrese Jeys-Morrison (QB sack) and 10-year-old cornerbacks Tyson Graham and Andrew Hunt.

Quarterback Jaxon Russell, 11, provided steady generalship throughout the four games, while Thomas Van Egmond, 11, finished strong.

In game one of their tournament the Titans beat Langley 12-0. Gonzalez made two touchdown runs completing for 22 yards.

The team’s second game resulted in a 6-6 tie with Royal City. Gonzalez completed a five-yard TD run earlier in the game to keep White Rock-South Surrey in trophy contention.

The team went back to their winning ways in game three with a 12-0 rollover against Coquitlam.

Sutherland completed a 35-yard interception return for the Titan’s first touchdown. Damron finished the rout on a 73-yard end-zone run.

The tournament ended with the Titans taking the trophy by beating Mission 18-0. Touchdowns came from Brown, Gonzalez and Figueroa – who ran in for five yards off a pass from Russell.

Next up for the Titans is their season opener Sunday.

All five Titans’ teams will be opening the Vancouver Mainland Football League season at the South Surrey Athletic Park. The first game kicks off at 9 a.m.
