Sarnia Sturgeon Peewees lost Home/Season Opener

May 27, 2012


The Sarnia Sturgeon Peewees were defeated by the Twin City Predators by a score of 14 - 6 in their home/season opener in OFC Football action on Sunday at Norm Perry Park. 

The Predators scored their first touchdown in the first quarter by Jahmei Powell and Jody Brown scored the extra 2 points to go up 8 - 0.



In the second quarter Jody Brown ran in for 6 point touchdown, but the Predators were unable to capitalize on the extra points.  The half ended with the Predators leading 14 - 0.


"We started out slow and flat and they are a big and fast team and out guys weren't ready for it." said head coach Tim Purdy "We challenged them at half time and they showed up the second half."


The Sturgeon took control in the second half as Joey Ferrera ran in for the touch down near the end of the third quarter. Coach Purdy estimated that they were in possession for 80% of the time but time ran out giving the Twin City Predators the win.


 "We have a good bunch of players, and I'm very happy with the players we got so I'm sure the way we bounced back in the second half  we are going to learn from this."  said Purdy


The Peewee's travel to London next weekend to take on the defending champions the Forest City Thunderbirds.
