Junior bantam Chilliwack Giants blank North Langley Bears to stay perfect

Week five of the minor football season saw several Chilliwack Minor Football teams pick up wins.

The junior bantam Giants stayed unbeaten with a 22-0 defeat of North Langley last weekend.

The Bears came into Townsend Park with a shorthanded roster and had too few players to finish the game. The visitors fought hard, but Chilliwack was too powerful.

The Giants put up 237 net yards of offence in the first half alone. Quarterback Aiden Hewitt connected with wide receiver Carter Dallas for the lone passing score, a 64 yard catch and run into the endzone.

Yapo Conteh added two rushing touchdowns and Charlie Larson nailed a pair of two point converts.

Erick Hauser was the Blocker of the Game.

Brody Munroe, Matteo Reid and Talon Fischer had fumble recoveries for the Chilliwack D and defensive end Austin Staffen had an outstanding day on the edge.

The peewee White Giants ground out a tough 18-14 win over the North Langley Bears.

Under the Friday Night Lights at Townsend Park, running back Caleb Friesen accounted for all of the Chilliwack points with three touchdown runs. Denver Adam also ran effectively as the Giants rolled up nearly 200 yards rushing.

Center Wyatt Tutty and guards Malakai Hakansson and Austin MacDonald anchored the Chilliwack offensive line with tackles Annalia Alton and Ayden Barwich throwing up a wall on the outside.

On defence, Theraz Kelly and Will Stewart were wrecking balls from their tackle positions.

The Chilliwack secondary was airtight. Cornerbacks Cody Hagel and Elijay Reid and safety Ben Graff shut down the North Langley passing game while halfbacks Kenna Friesen and Ryden Tatler shut down any attempts by the Bears to run outside. Kicker Evan Fawcett and gunner Lawson Dades combined for two successful onside kicks.

Carson Breland and Myles Baker had rushing touchdowns. Parker Grant ran for two majors and caught a TD toss from Kingston Moran.

Chilliwack’s defensive line was equally dominant, led by run stuffers Linden Vance, Miguel Adamik, Emmanuel Hernandez and Roger Carter.

Logan Pollard kicked the ball well and the Giants got solid special teams play from Jack Cahoon and Lochlan Clements.
