Six North Surrey teams kicked off the new Vancouver Mainland Football League season in style with impressive wins last weekend.
The big bad Bears rocked Vernon 43-13 to open the midget campaign at Bear Creek Park. Seye Akinsanmi sparked North Surrey with three touchdowns while Andy Sandu, Brendan Powers and Brian Nguygen added one major apiece.
In bantam action, David Lagou scored a pair of TDs and Emeka Okuma and Brenner Willie added one each as the North Surrey Panthers pounced on a 29-6 win over the Cloverdale Bulldogs.
The North Surrey Tigers completed an opening day sweep in the bantam division with a 59-0 win over the Cloverdale Leopards. Nathan Brown scored three TDs while Ernie Santos and Colby Peters helped out with two each.
It was a high-scoring affair in the peewee division where the North Surrey Cardinals outlasted 50-31. Jaheim Minott and Jesse Goedman combined for seven TDs to lead the Cards.
In another peewee clash, Emmanuel Odong scored a pair of majors to help the North Surrey Hawks blank Langley 32-0.
North Surrey's atom Lions roared early and often in a 40-0 romp over South Delta. Jamel Yousef scored a trio of majors while Javon Minott added a pair.
The North Delta Longhorns opened the atom football season with a convincing 42-0 thrashing of Renfrew.
Carter Spencer led the Longhorns with three TDs while solo efforts came from Xavier Singfield, Brayden Johnston and Xavier Cole.

Antonio Mendoza scored a pair of TDs to cue the Titans offence while on defence, Ben Vallee and Peter Kilberg returned interceptions 83 and 82 yards, respectively for two more White Rock majors.
