Three White Rock Titans squads win on gridiron

Flag, atom and midget football teams earn victories in Vancouver Mainland Football League action last weekend.

Three White Rock-South Surrey Titans football teams earned victories Sunday, while two others were shut out.

In flag action, the Titans edged the Royal City Hyacks 22-13 in New Westminster, and were led by Marley Reiffer-Rodriguez and quarterback/kicker Bud Beliveau; the duo were responsible for all the Titans’ points in the game.

Reiffer-Rodriguez finished the game with three touchdown runs – two of which came in the first half, when the two teams were battling back and forth for the lead – while Beliveau also had three touchdowns. He also converted two kicks.

The atom-division Titans also won on the road Sunday, defeating the Cloverdale Lions 22-7.

Cloverdale jumped out to an early 7-0 lead, but White Rock quarterback Beckham Dickie soon scored a TD of his own, and after Thor McKenzie kicked a convert – worth two points – the Titans took the lead.

Dickie added another touchdown – also converted by McKenzie – to give the Titans a 16-7 halftime lead.

In the second half, Alec Kemp weaved his way through Cloverdale defenders for the team’s final touchdown of the game.

The midget Titans, meanwhile, improved on their already strong record with a 37-20 win over the Vernon Magnums Sunday afternoon at South Surrey Athletic Park.

White Rock jumped out to a 10-0 lead after one quarter, after a TD from Riley Born and field goal from Tyler Jameson.

In the second, the home side padded its lead when Born scored on a 12-yard run.

The lead stretched to 31-0 later in the game, after Zack Skene found receiver Alex Lane open for a touchdown catch and Dallas Yassinsky returned a Vernon punt 71 yards into the end  zone.

Sarpreet Chahal, on a five-yard TD catch, also figured into the scoring for White Rock.

The Titans didn’t give up a point until late in the game, when Vernon scored on a 19-yard touchdown pass, and followed that with a successful onside kick, which eventually led to another six points.

Elsewhere on the gridiron, the peewee Titans were shut out by their rivals from just up the road, losing 30-0 to the Cloverdale Bobcats, while the junior bantam Titans also failed to score Sunday, losing 48-0 to the Coquitlam Raiders at Mackin Park.
