Leopards pounce

Cloverdale Bantam Leopards win final home game at Cloverdale Athletic Park.

Timing can be everything.

The Cloverdale Bantam Leopards managed to pounce on the advancing line of the Ridge Meadow Nights during the final minutes of a home game over the weekend, taking it 22-20.

The Nov. 13 game was the final game of the regular season for the team, part of the Cloverdale Community Football Association, which plays in the Lower Mainland Football League.

Highlights: It was an exciting back and forth game. KD Duhlar started the scoring on a 65-yard-line punt return. Christian MacMillan had the second touchdown on a 50-yard passing play, and Anoop Nahal capped off the scoring with a 30-yard completion after the Leopards marched the ball down the field with their hurry up offence.

The Leopards held the advancing Nights in the final minute to secure victory.

Standouts were quarterback Gurjot Bains, with his best game of the year, David Dinbandhu, who had some key blocks and tackles, MacMillan, who played receiver, backup QB and running back, and Jake Bracey, who stepped up at centre.
