Marauders, Titans fall in league play

It was a week the two local high school football programs would just as soon forget as the Pitt Meadows Marauders varsity and junior varsity squads, as well as the Samuel Robertson Technical Secondary School Titans junior varsity team, were each shut out in league play.

The Marauders seniors fell 45-0 to the Mission Roadrunners Friday night. The Roadrunners are the No. 2 ranked AA team in the province, and made short work of the Marauders.

The senior Marauders are in action this Friday as they take on the No. 6-ranked Robert Bateman Timberwolves under the lights at Pitt Meadows secondary at 7:30 p.m.

The Marauders junior varsity team didn’t fare much better against Langley last Wednesday, losing 37-0 on the road. With the loss, the junior Marauders are 1-2 in league play this season.

The junior Marauders host Holy Cross this Thursday at home, at 3:30 p.m.

The junior Titans were also shutout last Wednesday as they were blanked 48-0 in their home opener against the Robert Bateman Timberwolves. The Titans are also at 1-2, tied for fifth place in the AA Eastern Conference with the Marauders and the Rick Hansen Hurricanes.

The Titans host Rick Hansen today (Wednesday) at 3:30 p.m. at home at Rotary Field.

The Pitt Meadows Marauders Grade 8 team, however, improved to 2-0 with a 32-28 win over Howe secondary on Oct. 3.

The Grade 8 Marauders are tied for first place in the Eastern Conference with four points.
