Stamps fall in double OT to Bears

Dramatic finish in provincial midget football final at McLeod Athletic Park

The game began perfectly for the Langley Stampeders, but the ending was less than desired.

Nolan McMurchy took the opening kickoff back for a touchdown and Devin DaCosta added two rushing touchdowns to put the Stampeders ahead 21-7 after one quarter. And that score stood until the fourth quarter when the North Surrey Bears forced overtime with two touchdowns.

And the Bears would scored a touchdown in the second overtime period to prevail 28-21  in the B.C. Community Football Association midget provincial final on Saturday night at McLeod Athletic Park.

DaCosta earned game MVP honours for Langley.

The loss was the first all season for Langley.
