Midget Giants blast Bengals to stay unbeaten

Chilliwack's peewee Red Giants also moved to 6-0 with a one-sided win over the Mission Niners.

Chilliwack’s midget football Giants are 6-0 to start the season after pummelling the Cloverdale Bengals last weekend.

The Giants beat the Bengals 29-6, doing most of their offensive damage in the first quarter.

Marius Anghel caught a Josh Pretty touchdown pass to open the scoring, and Chilliwack led 21-0 through 15 minutes. They would have had more if not for a fumble at Cloverdale’s one yard line.

Pretty hooked up with Ben Richards for Chilliwack’s final scoring strike, and Trey Isaac was four-for-four on point after kicks.

The Giants and North Surrey Bears clash tonight (Friday) in a massive clash at Townsend Park. The first Friday night midget matchup in five years kicks off at 7 p.m..


— Chilliwack’s peewee Red Giants kept their perfect record (6-0) intact with a 36-0 win over Mission’s Niners.

Chilliwack’s offensive line of Logan Head, Davies Mitchell, Tyler Kelly, Taylor Both and Daniel King paved the way for the Giant attack.

King was a defensive standout as well, recording four quarterback sacks.

Theo Smith and Austin Wegener took down the Mission QB two times each as Chilliwack held the Niners to just one first down in the entire game.


— Grayson Frick had three rushing touchdowns as his peewee Blue Giants squashed Meadow Ridge 26-0.

D.J. Williams helped his defence pitch a shutout, with Jaxson Wilkins snagging an interception.


— A tough day at the atom level saw the Blue Giants fall 39-9 to the Abbotsford Falcons while the Red Giants lost 40-0 to the North Langley Bears.

Running back Wyatt Stobbs was the game MVP for the Blue Giants, picking up yards behind the blocking of Kalen Konrad and Aiden Hewitt.

Mitchell Price, Finn Brandsma, Camillo Salas and Antonio Salas led the D.

The Red Giants got big performances from offensive linemen Dorian Thompson and Kaleb Matheson.

Defensively, Corbin Upshaw and Evan Butler both had QB sacks.
