Atom Quarter Final

Throughout the entire year, most games in the Atom Division were very close and competitive. This was again the case in the Atom Quarter Final where the game was won in shoot out with the Metcalfe Photography Shock Wave taking the win 30 - 24 over the Sarnia Lakeshore Optimists Inferno to advance to the semis.

In the first half, the teams traded scores with Devondary Rose and Carter Pagano counting majors for the Shock Wave. Nathan Tremblay and Liam O'Rourke replied for the Inferno as the teams were tied 12-12 at the half.

Pagano put the Shock Wave up 18-12 in the second half on a 9 yard run. Bryce Morgan tied it from the 2 yard line the next time the Inferno had the ball. With only 3 minutes remaining, Rose put the Shock Wave up again as he scampered into the end zone.

The Inferno did not give up and methodically marched the ball downfield in the waning moments. There was less than a minute to play when Nathan Tremblay tied it for the Inferno on a nifty 14 yard dash, eluding 4 would be tacklers. This sent the game to a shoot out, in which each team would have one possession from the 20 yard line.

If the teams remained tied, this would continue until a winner was declared. The Shock Wave had the ball first and on the fourth play, the elusive Pagano scored the go ahead major from the 3 yard line. On the Inferno's possession, the Shock Wave defense came up big and thwarted the Inferno drive, booking a ticket for them to the semis on Saturday.
