White Rock-South Surrey Titans’ flag division squad started Titans Day with a bang – a four-point victory over the Cloverdale Cheetahs.

White Rock Titans win four on home turf

White Rock-South Surrey Titans teams picked up four wins in five games Sunday, during the minor football association’s annual Titans Day celebrations.

White Rock-South Surrey Titans teams picked up four wins in five games Sunday, during the minor football association’s annual Titans Day celebrations.

To start Sunday’s action at South Surrey Athletic Park, the flag-division Titans edged the Cloverdale Cheetahs 7-3.

The Cheetahs scored first, but failed to convert the point-after, and then White Rock took the lead when Reid Turner returned the ensuing kick for a touchdown – TDs are worth three points in flag football – and Lucas Roger-Wilson converted the point-after (two points).

Titans’ Lucas Rolling rounded out the scoring when he snagged the opposing running back’s flag in the Cloverdale end zone for a safety.

“It was a strong defensive battle, well-played by both teams,” Titans assistant coach Aaron Collins said.

In atom action, the Titans’ offence was in fine form, beating the Cloverdale Lions 40-8.

Kulsher Randhawa, who was named player of the game, and Isaiah Edwards each had two touchdowns for the home team, while Rhys Huston and Jay Mather had one apiece to round out the scoring.

Mather’s score came after Marcus Cumberworth recovered a Lions’ fumble to give the Titans’ offence the ball.

Alisha Jeys-Morrison was named the Titans’ top defensive player for the game, while other strong defensive performances were put forth by Kieran Ritchie, Michael Giustino and Brett Fowler.

The Titans also put their offensive game on display in the peewee tilt Sunday afternoon, beating the Richmond Raiders 38-7.

White Rock led 30-7 at halftime, thanks to two TDs apiece from Michael Dowhaniuk and Eduardo Gonzalez, and Noah Brown added the team’s fifth touchdown in the fourth quarter, on a four-yard play.

Johnny Sutherland, Thane Martine and Dillon Miolla were also standouts on offence, while Lukas Frers, Jarod Roberson, Keith Lowe and Thomas Van Egmond were solid on defence.

The Titans’ midget squad rounded out the association’s victorious Sunday with a 39-17 win over the Chilliwack Giants.

Neither team’s offence moved the ball much in the early stages of the game, but White Rock got on the board when, after a Daniel Mendoza fumble recovery, the Titans marched downfield and Brandon LeMoignan kicked a 20-yard field goal.

LeMoignan also scored the Titans’ first major later in the opening quarter, when quarterback Cole Meyer hit him with a 45-yard pass that he took into the end zone.

Chilliwack scored a TD of their own on a 15-yard quarterback sneak, and after a slew of White Rock penalties, scored again on a 51-yard catch-and-run play to take the lead in the second quarter.

Before halftime, Chilliwack tacked on a field goal, giving them 17 unanswered points before the break

In the second quarter, White Rock had a scoring play overturned when a penalty nullified a play that saw Titans’ Josh Cochrane return a missed field goal attempt 115 yards for a highlight-reel worthy touchdown.

In the second half, Meyer and LeMoignan again hooked up on a scoring play – this time from 42 yards out – and Cochrane followed up with a 55-yard punt return touchdown to give White Rock the lead.

In the fourth quarter, the Giants conceded a safety to White Rock, and Willie Watson extended the home side’s lead with a two-yard TD catch. Watson, playing defensive back, scored again on defence when, on the Giants’ next drive, he ran an interception back 67 yards into the end zone. Tyler Leader also had a key interception for White Rock late in the game, and Peter Kilberg and Andrew Lawrence also played well on defence.

The Titans’ only loss of the day came in the junior bantam tilt against the North Surrey Falcons, which the visiting team won 13-6.
