The season is over for two more White Rock-South Surrey Titans football teams, after both the atom and peewee squads bowed out in the opening round of Vancouver Mainland Football League playoffs.
The midget Titans are still alive in the postseason; they had a first-round bye after an undefeated regular season and host a quarter-final playoff game Sunday against the Victoria Spartans.
The atom Titans lost their playoff tilt 14-8 to the North Surrey Lions Sunday at Bear Creek Park.
The Lions scored the game’s first touchdown, but the Titans fought back and briefly held an 8-6 lead in the second quarter – after Isaiah Edwards ran 40 yards for a score – before North Surrey tacked on the winning touchdown in the second half.
The peewee Titans, who were seeded fourth in the playoff tournament, lost by a field goal, 20-17, to the No. 5-ranked Westside Warriors at South Surrey Athletic Park Sunday.
White Rock’s youngest group, the flag-division Titans, took part in a year-end jamboree last weekend at Coquitlam’s Mackin Park.
The No. 1-seeded midget Titans will look to extend their season against the No. 8 Spartans this Sunday. Kickoff is at 2 p.m. at South Surrey Athletic Park.
