The youngest members of the White Rock-South Surrey Titans football association opened Sunday with a win – a feat   matched later in the day by the club’s oldest members.

Week 2 of the Vancouver Mainland Football League schedule meant it was Titans Day at South Surrey Athletic Park Sunday, with all White Rock-South Surrey gridiron squads playing at home.

The flag-division Titans began the festivities with a 19-3 victory over the North Delta Longhorns.

Early in the game, the Titans went up 3-0 – in flag football, touchdowns are worth three points, not six – on a TD run from Marley Reiffer, and Bud Beliveau doubled the Titans’ score later in the first quarter with a run of his own.

Reiffer and Beliveau were, in fact, responsible for all of the White Rock-South Surrey offence in the game.

Reiffer finished the game with three touchdowns, all on rushing attempts and also caught a 20-yard pass from Beliveau, at quarterback.

Beliveau, meanwhile, ran for three touchdowns himself, and also kicked a convert for the Titans.

On defence, the Titans’ kept the Longhorns’ offence at bay, and was led by Zak and Naji Sallans, Maxwell Chakrabari and Alexander McCrank, among others.

The victory was the second in a row for the flag-division team, which opened the season Sept. 2 with a win over the Richmond Raiders.

White Rock’s midget team – which won a provincial title last season – was also victorious Sunday, defeating the Chilliwack Giants 29-1.

Titans quarterback Zack Skene had a good day throwing the ball, finishing the game with four touchdown passes.

Jake Hurst got a pair of Skene’s TD throws, while Peter Kilberg – who has three touchdowns already this season – and Willie Watson, on a 54-yard strike, also caught touchdown passes in the game.

On defence, Travis McDonald led the way with a pair of sacks, one of which resulted in a safety, and Andrew Lawrence also had a fumble recovery.

Alex Lane also returned a fumble for a touchdown, but the play was negated due to a penalty elsewhere on the field.

The Giants’ only point came in the first half, after the team couldn’t score from the Titans’ eight yard line, and a missed 12-yard field goal sailed through the end zone for a single.

The midget Titans improved to 2-0, after a 44-7 Week 1 win over the North Langley Bears.

Two other Titan squads were in action Sunday, with the atom-division crew losing 20-14 to the Royal City Hyacks, and the peewee Titans falling 28-0 to the Coquitlam Wildcats.
