VIDEO: Langley Rams home opener a tight scrap

The Langley Rams played their first home game of the season under bright sunny skies as the fellas welcomed the Westshore Rebels on Saturday.

The first quarter ended with a 3-all tie and the Rebels up one point but the Rams came charging back. The third quarter ended with 16-10 for Langley. With just over six and a half minutes left in the final quarter, the Rebels moved ahead to make it 19-16. The score didn’t budge after that.

Mattias Bueno’s three field goals and one single and Joseph Carter, with a touchdown, scored for the Rams Saturday afternoon.

The Rams hit the road for games Aug. 11 and 18 before their next home game on Aug. 25 when the Okanagan Sun visit.
