Sarnia Sturgeon Bantam's home opener spoiled by the Oakville Titans
Sunday June 10, 2012


The Sarnia Sturgeon Bantams hosted the Oakville Titans in their home opener at Norm Perry Park on Sunday afternoon.

The Titans scored the first touch down in the first quarter for 6 points.  The Sturgeon blocked the extra point kick.  Sarnia took the lead on a reverse and 35 yard run by Keyshawn Jordan to even the score and Vincent Ham's kick was good for the extra point to give Sarnia the 7 - 6 lead.

On the next play Sarnia's kick return to the Titans was fumbled and the Sturgeon's recovered on the Titans 40 yard line.  After a series of play Brendan Shanks ran up the middle for a touch down.  The Sturgeon attempted a two point run but was brought down.  In the second quarter Sarnia drove the ball downfield and with less than a yard to go Cobe Cox ran up the middle for the touch down.  Vincent Ham extra point kicked was good.  The half ended with the Sturgeon leading 20 - 6.

In the second half the Titans ran the ball scoring two touchdowns and making a two point conversion to tie the game.  In the final seconds the Sturgeon fumbled the ball in the end zone and the Titans recovered giving them the touchdown and lead.  The extra point went wide.  Time ran out and the Titans won with a final score of 26 - 20.
