Coquitlam’s Lemar Durant scored a 14-yard touchdown as the Simon Fraser University Clan football team savaged Azusa Pacific 66-38 on Saturday night.

The win was the squad’s second consecutive conference victory at home this season and is one of the most lopsided scores since the team entered the NCAA.

Both teams started strong but SFU began to pull away after retaking the lead with 4:31 in the half, when Durant scored a 14-yarder to make it 23-17 at the half.

Defensive player Kyle Miller said that while the team had a strong game on offense, they could have done a better job of keeping Azusa out of SFU’s end zone.

“We played well tonight but there is no way they should have scored as many points as they did,” he said. “It will be important to focus as the season continues and make fewer errors on our own.”

The Clan will be back in action on Saturday, in Ellensburg, Wash., where they will take on Central Washington University.


RAIDERS PILLAGE TITANS

The Coquitlam Raiders improved their record to 6-0 after a dominating 48-0 victory against the White Rock Titans on Sunday at Mackin Park in junior bantam football.

Jason Dongalen led the offence with 147 yards rushing and three touchdowns, while Jeremy Kankolongo chipped in with a 35-yard punt return for a touchdown and five converts.

Tavian Williams also scored on a 40-yard pass and run play, while the defence kept the Triton’s receivers from cracking the end zone. The team will take on the New Westminster Hyacks this Sunday at Mackin Park field.
