SMAA Wednesday Night Football

Wednesday October 21

The contests Wednesday night marked the last regular season Wednesday night games this year. The Atom Division played a doubleheader under the lights which was a thrill for the players. Both games did not disappoint as all four teams put on an outstanding performance before enthusiastic parents.

On the West Field The Sarnia Lakeshore Optimists Inferno tackled the Robinson Design and Drafting Razor Claws. This was a game that would go a long way in determining second place.

The last time these teams met, the Inferno prevailed 36-30. The Inferno had the ball first and immediately scored on a 32 yard touchdown dash by Liam O'Rourke. The Razor Claws replied on their initial possession thanks to a 20 yard run by Mark Pack. The Inferno next broke the plane on an 11 yard td run by Nathan Tremblay, his first of 3 in the game. Mason Broer knotted the game at 12 from 10 yards out before the 8 minute mark as the offenses were really moving up and down the field. In possibly the turning point of the game, the Claw defense under encouragement from Coach Intense, Chad VanBarneveld, made a huge stop and took over on downs the next time the Inferno had the ball. Travis Kozak did not waste any time, immediately scampering 30 yards to give the Claws a lead they would never relinquish. Kozak's second major and a 1 yard plunge by the Inferno's Bryce Morgan staked the Razor Claws to a 24-18 halftime lead. The Claws had the ball to start the second half and their initial drive ended successfully on a 30 yard run by Reece Baumgartner. From then on the teams traded touchdowns with Travis notching his third major of the game and brother Trevor also scampering in from 25 yards for the Razor Claws. Nathan Tremblay notched both Inferno touchdowns in the second half on runs of 27 and 30 yards. The Razor Claws were victorious 42-30.

The East field featured a tilt between the Sylvan Learning Centre Fire Bolts and the Metcalfe Photography Shock Wave. These teams tied 30-30 in their last match up. The Fire Bolts scored first on a 35 yard run by Shane Knight. The Shock Wave battled back as they have all season and tied the game when the fleet footed Carter Pagano ran 15 yards. Zavier Mitchell and Knight also added touchdowns for the Bolts in the first half. Pagano counted another major for the Shock Wave as the Bolts led 18-12 at the break. The teams traded touchdowns in the second half with Mitchell and Knight counting for the Fire Bolts. Pagono's third touchdown and a nifty 5 yard run by Devondary Rose had the Fire Bolts up 30-24 with time winding down. On the last play of the game the Fire Bolt defense came up huge, stopping a Shock Wave sweep on the Fire Bolt 10 yard line to preserve the win.
