White Rock-South Surrey Titans set to host four

Football teams near end of Vancouver Mainland Football League season

The White Rock-South Surrey Titans are getting set for a full day of football Sunday at South Surrey Athletic Park.

For the last time all season, four teams will play in front of home fans, as the flag, peewee, junior bantam and midget teams all play in succession, beginning at 10 a.m. when the flag team takes on Cloverdale, and ending with a midget matchup between White Rock and the visiting Victoria Spartans.

A fifth WRSS squad, the atom Titans, are on the road, playing the North Delta Longhorns at John Oliver Park.

Sunday is the penultimate week of the regular season, with the Titans’ final slate of games, set for Nov. 3, all on the road. Quarter-final playoff tilts, for teams that qualify, start the week of Nov. 11.

Last week, both the flag, peewee and midget Titans won their league games.

The flag squad won 18-8 over the North Surrey Ravens, the peewees edged the Burnaby Lions 8-0 – Haydn Stomperud scored the winning touchdown –and the midget team beat the Langley Stampeders by a 20-14 score.

In the midget contest, Titans’ running back Dallas Yassinsky scored the go-ahead touchdown with 11 seconds left in the game, running into the end zone from six yards out.

The midget Titans, who sit first in the Vancouver Mainland Football League, were coming off a 24-14 win the week before, against the struggling Nanaimo Redmen, who are in last place and have yet to win a game this season.
