White Rock Titans capture atom-division football crown

White Rock-South Surrey minor football squad now prepares for playoffs later this month.

Though playoffs – set to begin next week – will determine the ultimate champions of the Vancouver Mainland Football League, the atom-division White Rock-South Surrey Titans already have one notch in their belt after claiming a regular-season title last weekend.

Playing on their home turf at South Surrey Athletic Park on Sunday, the Titans defeated New Westminster’s Royal City Hyacks 30-14 and finished the VMFL regular season with a record of 9-0-1 – good enough for top spot in the 12-team atom bracket.

The Titans’ offence was let by Marley and Max Reiffer, who scored two touchdowns apiece, while kicker Aiden Robins booted a trio of two-point converts to round out the team’s scoring.

Bud Beliveau, Amir Gill, Hudson Bromley, Wyatt Pendergast and Nick Napper were the defensive leaders for White Rock.

Elsewhere on the gridiron, White Rock’s peewee team lost to the Cloverdale Wildcats 40-0, and their playoff fate hangs in the balance, with one regular-season game remaining on Nov. 9.

The Titans’ bantam squad, meanwhile, won on the weekend, beating the Vancouver Trojans 49-6.

The association’s flag-division teams will wrap up their season this weekend at the VMFL flag jamboree in Coquitlam.

Elsewhere in Surrey last weekend, the atom-division North Surrey T-Birds edged the Cloverdale Lions 22-18. Cloverdale was led by Rajin Chahal, who scored two touchdowns, while Jacob Russ added one.

The Lions finished the regular season in sixth place, with a record of 5-5.

At the junior bantam level, the North Surrey Eagles defeated the North Delta Longhorns 44-24, thanks in large part to Jello Juatco, who paced the victors’ attack with four touchdowns.

Antonio Pamintuan also had two major scores, and Emmanuel Odong kicked for eight total points.

The win lifted the Eagles to a 9-1-0 record, which puts them in first-place finish, just ahead of the 8-1-1 Longhorns.
