The Ridge Meadows Knights Bantams beat the North Delta Longhorns 31-7 in Valley Community Football League action on Sunday.

In a day featuring pouring rain and heavy winds, the Longhorns came out strong, scoring early in the first quarter, serving notice to the Knights that it was game on.

The Knights offence quickly countered with their own successful drive, with Jevon Anoutooshkin punching it into the end zone. From that point on the Knights dominated the field.

The defence stepped up huge throughout the game, consistently shutting down the Longhorn offence, minimizing gains and keeping the Knights in great field position.

Midway into the second quarter, a successful offensive drive and quarterback sneak put Mike Shears into the end zone.

A fumble recovery by James Grimason at the Longhorns 40 yard line was another backbreaker for Delta.

By the half the Knights led by 12 points.

Early in the third quarter, the Knights offensive line cleared a path and Cody Hogarth turned on the jets for a 60-yard touchdown.

Grimason followed suit in the next Knights drive, hitting pay dirt for a second time, sealing the deal.

The Knights now take on the South Delta Rams on Sunday, Nov. 20 at Dennison Park in their final game of the regular season, fighting for third place.
