Tiger Sharks remain undefeated over winless bears
andrew brethauer september 28th, 2011

Sarnia, ON It was week 4 in SMAA Bantam football, as the Tiger Sharks looked to remain undefeated while the Bears looked  for their first win of the season. The Bears held it close at the half, but the Tiger Sharks offence would find the endzone three times for a 30-6 victory.

On the first possession of the game for the Tiger Sharks they would quickly move it down field, utilizing the long pass and run. Knocking on the red zone, the Bears defence forced a 4th down stop inside their own 15 yard line to end the drive.

On the Bears possession, they move it down field with the long pass, setting a 30 yard run for Eric DeSena who would score for the touchdown to give the Bears the early lead 6-0.

But the Tiger Sharks offence would begin to make a march down field themselves, where Nicholas Day would catch a 20 yard touchdown throw and rush it in to tie the game at 6-6.

The Tiger Sharks would continue their push before the half, as Keyshaun Jordan would also pick up a long pass to move the Tiger Sharks down field. With time ticking away, another pass to Jordan would put the Tiger Sharks inside the 15, but time would expire on the half, as the two teams were locked at 6-6.

But Keyshaun Jordan would pick up where he left off in the first half, this time running the ball for 20 yards to the outside for the touchdown and also adding the extra two points on a kick to give the Tiger Sharks their first lead 14-6.

The Bears on the next kick off would get excellent field possession after a bad kick put them in the Tiger Sharks zone, but the Bears could not move it enough for the score, turning the ball over on downs. On the resulting next play, the Tiger Sharks would snap it on their own 30 yard line where Kobe Cox would rush it all the way down to the 3 yard line before being taken down, just as the 3rd quarter ended. Cox would finish the play off in the 4th quarter, rushing up the middle for the touchdown, as the Tiger Sharks lead 22-6.

The Tiger Sharks found success in the 4th quarter on the ground, as Jack VanWolde would bust up the middle for another large 30 yard run to set up another 10 yard touchdown run by Cox for his second touchdown of the quarter.

The Tiger Sharks would go on to win 30-6, and remain undefeated at 4-0-0.
