WEEK FIVE

 

Chilliwack’s bantam Blue Giants travelled to Langley Oct. 1 to take on the North Langley Bears.

A 60 yard scamper by Nashon Douglas set up the game’s first major by Kirkland Kennedy.

On the next Chilliwack possession,  Kennedy hooked up with Jake Creasy on a 45 yard passing play to increase the lead to 13-0.

Late in the second quarter, Filip Horak hauled in a 35 yard pass to set up Creasy’s second touchdown of the game. A successful two point convert made it 21-0 at halftime and the  final score was 21-6.

Playmakers on the Giants defense included Josh Fitzsimmons, Zach Toews, Colton Derouin and Treyvon Walsh.

 

— The junior bantam Red Giants had a tough time against Meadow Ridge, losing 44-0.

Defensively, Jacob Martin had three solo tackles and five assists.  Cameron Betker and Jordan Breuker both had two solo tackles and three assists each.

Elijah Schellenberg recovered a Knights fumble.

Special teams hurt Chilliwack as the Knights returned a punt 50 yards for one major and took their own kickoff 42 yards for another touchdown.

 

— The atom Red Giants dropped a 24-20 heartbreaker to Ridge Meadows, falling short with a furious fourth quarter rally.

The Giants opened the scoring on a long run by Kurtis Flynn, but the Knights countered with two majors of their own.

The score at halftime favoured the Knights 18-6 and they took a 24-6 lead early in the second half on another long run.

Chilliwack’s defence, led by Mason Murphy, Josh Lodge and Dayton Rodger, shut it down from there, giving the offence a chance to come back.

Flynn and Thomas Nelson scored a pair of TDs on bruising runs, and given five more minutes the Giants likely would have pulled out a win.

Michael Martin had 12 carries for 143 yards and three TD’s for the white side, adding seven tackles and one forced fumble on defence.
