SMAA Football All Division Season Openers

September 14, 2015

SMAA Football began another season Saturday September 12 with a fill slate of games at Norm Perry Park. All teams sported new uniforms that stood out and made the teams look fantastic.

The Atom Division were first on the field. The Robinson Design and Drafting Razor Claws overcame an 18-12 halftime deficit to prevail over the Metcalfe Photography Shock Wave 36-30. A key to the Razor Claws scoring was their balanced attack with 5 players counting majors. Travis Kozak led the winners with 2 touchdowns with individual scores by Mark Pack, Reese Baumgartner, Mason Broer and Chayton VanBarneveld. The Shock Wave played hard all game and were rewarded by a pair of touchdowns from Devondray Rose and Carter Pagano. Hunter Willman also crossed the goal line for the Shock Wave.

The other Atom Division game was very close for a while as the teams were knotted at 12, before the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 62 Iron Hides pulled away with 3 unanswered touchdowns for a 30-12 victory over the Sarnia Lakeshore Optimist Inferno. Nathan Tremblay took the rock to the house twice for the Inferno scores. Parker Wyant and Josh Manning each had a pair of touchdowns for the Hides with Jack Vozza scored their fifth touchdown.

In the first PeeWee game, the Sarnia Lakeshore Optimists Vortex scored early and often on route to a 24-0 victory over the Vidal Pharmacy Raiders. Tyler Hopwood, a first year PeeWee, was a one man wrecking crew, scoring all 24 points in the first half, on touchdown runs of 7, 11, 24 and 28 yards. Both defenses came up big in the scoreless second half. Zach McCabe many many fine open field tackles for the Raiders.


In the second PeeWee game, the BrownStones Sky Fire downed the Lanxess Avengers 20-6. The Sky Fire scored first on a 5 yard run by Gracin Rogers. A convert by Josh Bastos increased the lead to 8-0. The Avengers were not discouraged and on their next possession a 65 yard run by Joey Edlington narrowed the lead to 8-6. The Sky Fire counted the only other major in the first half on a 3 yard run by Alex Cannon for a 14-6 lead at the break. The second half was a defensive struggle with the only time the ball crossing the goal line on Cannon's second touchdown, from 18 yards out.

The first Bantam game resembled a track meet more than a football game with a total of 74 points being put on the board. The Mammoet Crane Mammoths opened the scoring on a 7 yard end run by Carter Amaral. The Grizzlies replied on their next possession with a 42 yard scamper by Avery Smiley as the teams were tied 6-6 after the first quarter. From then on, the Grizzlies pulled away and when all the touchdowns were finally scored they had a 50-24 victory. Hudson Laur and Avery Smiley each scored 3 touchdowns and Ethan Isaac added a single major. Justin Cain was successful on 5 of 7 converts. Electrifying Aiden Wildfong was responsible for the other 3 touchdowns scored by the Mammoths on runs of 45, 61 and 90 yards.

The finale was a Bantam game that was in stark contrast to the previous game. In this match the Mechanical Contractor's Association Toros prevailed over the Bigras Painting Tiger Sharks 13-6. This tilt was a very hard hitting defensive struggle. The Toros got on the board first with a 3 yard run by quarterback Ethan Kerby. The convert was successful on a Kerby to Ryan Dennis pass. The Sharks responded on a 53 yard run by the powerful Dylan Hiltz. The half time score was 7-6 Toros. The Toros counted the final major of the game, in the second half, as time was winding down. Hard running Joe Rose ran up the middle from 2 yards out to conclude the scoring in this very competitive game.
