Peewee Semi Finals


The final two teams playing on championship Saturday has been decided after a pair of Peewee semi final games.

In the first encounter the Vidal Pharmacy Raiders took on the first place BrownStones Sky Fire. The first half was a defensive struggle with the only points coming on a 61 yard run by quarterback Josh Foulis of the Sky Fire, staking his team to a 6-0 lead. The Sky Fire increased their lead to 12-0 when Foulis struck again, this time from the 15 yard line. The Raiders battled valiantly, as they have done all year and were rewarded when Josh Graham ran 14 yards after taking a pitch from quarterback Luke LaLonde. The score remained 12-6 until midway through the final quarter when Gracin Rogers scampered to the house from his own 51 yard line. Mitchell Blais rounded out the scoring on an 85 yard run earning the Sky Fire 24 - 6 win and a berth in the championship.

The second game was a battle between the Sarnia Lakeshore Optimists Vortex and the Lanxess Avengers. These two evenly matched teams put on an outstanding performance. Most of the first half was scoreless thanks to some huge defensive plays such as when the Vortex defense turned aside the Avengers just inches short of their goal line midway through the first quarter. Only later did the enormity of this stop become apparent. The Vortex counted the first points of the game on a 1 yard quarterback keeper by Zoey Urquhart with only 2:48 to play in the half. The Avengers responded immediately to this challenge with a touchdown of their own a minute later, on a 1 yard run by Nathan Cope, tying the score 6-6 at the half. The Vortex took the lead again on a 57 yard end around by the speedy Dylan Moran. The Avengers then mounted a successful drive that ended successfully when Joey Edlington ran into the end zone from the 5 yard line. Cope's conversion gave the Avengers their first lead of the game 14-12. With less than 5 minutes remaining the Vortex forged ahead when Urquhart scored a touchdown, once more on a 1 yard quarterback sneak. The Avengers had one last chance to win the game, but the Vortex defense came up big and turned the ball over on downs for a hard fought 18-14 victory over a determined Avenger team.
