On Wednesday September 30 a Bantam Doubleheader
took place. If you enjoyed offense these were the games to watch as a total
of 157 points were scored!
The opener pitted the undefeated Jim Easson/Brian Guenette Exit Realty
Grizzlies against the Bigras Painting Tiger Sharks. In this match the Tiger
Sharks used a ground and pound offense to open up a 31-22 lead at the half.
Dylan Hiltz had 3 touchdowns for the Sharks in the first half on runs of 1,
6 and 51 yards. Austin West counted a major on a 2 yard run and also
completed a convert on a pass from Hiltz. Hudson Laur had 3 touchdown runs
of 3, 50 and 70 yards for the Grizzlies. Justin Cain added two converts. In
the third quarter, Avery Smiley narrowed the lead to 31-30 on a 49 yard run
and a convert from Cain. Hiltz then replied for the Tiger Sharks on the next
drive, powering 8 yards for a touchdown and increasing the Tiger Shark lead
With time winding down and trailing 37-30, Smiley struck again, this time
from 36 yards out. The convert was blocked and the Tiger Sharks led 37-36.
The ensuing Grizzly short kick was recovered by Smiley, who picked it up and
scampered into the end zone. He next ran the convert over the goal line to
put the Grizzlies up for the first time in the game, 43-37 with only little
more than a minute to play. The Tiger Sharks quickly drove the ball down the
field and appeared to have the ball on the Grizzly 2 yard line, but the play
was nullified by a holding penalty, allowing the Grizzlies to hang on for
the win against the courageous Tiger Sharks.
In the second game, the Mammoet Crane Mammoths upended the Mechanical
Contractor's Association Toros 45-32. The game was the Aiden Wildfong show
as he scored touchdowns on runs of 12, 46, 49, 57 and 63 yards. Dre Pepper
also ran 60 yards to the end zone. Jaxon Rawcliffe added 4 converts and Ben
Brandt counted a point when his 75 yard kick off was conceded in the end
zone by the Toros for a single. Ethan Kerby scored 3 touchdowns for the
Toros on runs of 8, 30 and 45 yards. Jackson Grasse notched the other Toro
major on an electrifying 71 yard run. Zachary Tremblay successfully booted
converts on all four of these touchdowns.
