The JB Blue Giants won their sixth consecutive game, dominating the Langley Bears 58-14 last Saturday. The win sets up a rematch of the two top teams in the league from earlier in the season when the Meadow Ridge Knights (8-0) defeated the Giants (7-1) with a late field goal by a final score of 3-1.

In the game against Langley running back Cameron Lampart led the way with 89 yards on three carries and a touchdown, in addition to one reception for 25 yards. Running back Tyler Sprott had six carries for 50 yards and a TD while Ethan Mastin gained 48 yards on the ground. Jake Hunter and Conner Moore contributed 23 and 17 rushing yards respectively. Quarterback Riley Clayton completed seven of 10 attempts for 132 yards, three TDs and a phenomenal 152.1 passer rating. His top targets included Emerson Smith (four receptions, 72 yards, two TDs), Kyle Helsloot (two receptions, 35 yards), and Chris Derksen (one reception, 25 yards, one TD). Jake Hunter was also one for one for 25 yards in the air with a great sweep pass to Cameron Lampart.

Even though quarterback Nick Both didn’t play a single down on offense he managed two TDs, one on a 68-yard kickoff return and the other recovering his own missed field goal. Both also kicked a successful field goal, single point and returned an interception 30 yards, nearly scoring a third TD.
