The two longest active winning streaks in the VMFL Midget Division will collide on Hallowe’en night when the undefeated Coquitlam Falcons (7-0) play host to the Langley Stampeders (5-1), winners of their last four in a row.
This is the first and only regular season meeting between the two teams that seem destined to clash again in early December once the BCCFA Provincial Championships rolls around. Until that point, however, neither team is going to count their chickens before they hatch and they’ll be focused on just continuing their strong regular season runs.
The Falcons have been the cream of the crop of the division all season long and are coming off a 20-8 victory last week over the Comox Raiders. The Stampeders, meanwhile, haven’t lost a game since falling to the North Surrey Bears back in their second game of the season. They’re coming off an easy 45-0 pounding of the winless Cloverdale Bengals.
This game could be an early championship preview. Which team gets treated, and which team gets tricked in this Hallow’s Eve clash?
