Sturgeon Peewees win Bronze

July 30, 2012 

Chatham, On - The Sarnia Peewees concluded a fantastic weekend for the organization and a successful season for themselves by winning the bronze medal in the O.F.C. Champ Day Playoffs at Chatham Kent High School. Their opposition in this game was the host Chatham-Kent Cougars, a team, by some quirk in the schedule, they did not play this year.

Chatham took the opening kick-off and was forced to punt by the Sturgeon defense. Their punt was a short one and was recovered by one of their on side players. The host team made no mistake and drove for a touchdown to give the Cougars a 6-0 lead. The Sturgeon responded quickly to this score. On their ensuing possession Gabe Barnes sped 50 yards to knot the game at 6.

The Sturgeon defense forced a three and out to begin the second quarter and the visitors took their first lead of the game as Barnes again ran the ball into the end zone, this time on a 19 yard run off left tackle. Joey Ferrera recovered a fumble on the Cougar's next possession and promptly hit Kurtis Hill with a 30 yard pass and run play, putting the Sturgeon up 18-6 and apparently in charge of the game. However the Cougars exploded for 14 quick points on a 65 yard run by speedy Daylen Mailloux and an interception return for a touchdown to take a 20-18 lead at the half and to steal all the momentum from the Sturgeon.

The second half was all Sturgeon as majors were scored by Nathan Greaves on a 1 yard plunge and and Gabe Barnes on a 15 yard run to end the game. Angel Georgio had a key interception to end a dangerous looking Cougar drive.The final score was Sarnia Sturgeon 32 Chatham-Kent Cougars 20. Joey Ferrera was a workhorse for the Sturgeon carrying the ball 29 times for 133 yards. Gabe Barnes ran 10 times for 115 yards. Kurtis Hill led the defense with 7 tackles and Joey Ferrera had 6.
