Outlaws close season with loss

Langley junior bantam team falls to Rams; bantam Mustangs win by forfeit

The Langley junior bantam Outlaws season came to a close on Sunday with a 30-0 loss to the South Delta Rams.

The Outlaws were able to move the ball, but could not cap off any drives with points.

Chris Kongbo — with Ethan Croome, Dalen Cousineau, Zach Rohan, Ethan Morgan and Michael Guistino  opening holes for him — rushed for 175 yards.

T.J. Fujimuru had 20 yards rushing and another 25 yards receiving while Stryker Roloff had 50 yards rushing, and another 25 yards receiving. Fujimuru and Roloff were the favourite targets of quarterback Anthony Ghent.

Roloff also led the defence with 10 tackles, while Nick Murray had seven and Tysen Toombe had five.

Roloff and Kalden Phuntsak each came up with a fumble recovery.

The Langley Mustangs got an extra week off to prepare for the stretch drive after their scheduled opponent, the Cowichan Bulldogs, had to forfeit  the game due to a lack of healthy bodies.

The victory permitted the Mustangs to remain alone in second place, two points ahead of the Chilliwack Giants and North Delta Longhorns, in the fiercely contested Vancouver Mainland Football League’s bantam division.

The bonus preparation time now available ought to be of benefit to the Mustang team as they make ready to challenge the league leading South Delta Rams in back to back contests to determine who will finish in first place as the league heads into the playoff schedule.

The first game of the series against the Rams will take place on Sunday at 2:30 p.m.  at McLeod Athletic Park.
