Sarnia Sturgeon Junior Varsity faced Twin Cities Predators
Saturday June 16, 2012 

 

 

The Sarnia Sturgeon Junior Varsity team traveled to Sir Wilfrid Laurier University to take on the powerful Twin Cities Predators in what could be a preview of the Southern Division Final of the O.F.C. Both teams sported undefeated records of 3-0 and the game did not disappoint. The fans in attendance were treated to a clean, hard hitting game featuring 2 talented teams.

The Sturgeon took the opening kick-off and marched down the field to the Twin Cities 30 where they turned the ball over on a fumble. The Sturgeon defence then forced a three and out on the Predators, aided by a sack of the Twin Cities quarterback by Jeremy Jones. Hayden McLean returned the fourth down punt to the one yard line. Josh Elsley's run and Blake Maxfield's convert staked the Sturgeon to a 7-0 lead. The score remained that way for the reminder of the quarter thanks to tough defensive play by both teams.

In the second quarter a 60 yard dash by the brilliant runner of the Predators, Tre Nicholson, put the Predators on the board. A convert by Lorand Guczuly knotted the score at 7. The Sturgeon scored the only other points of the quarter when a 17 yard field goal attempt by Blake Maxfield sailed wide and through the end zone. Sarnia took an 8-7 lead to the break at the half.

The Predators forged ahead in the third quarter on a 10 yard pass from quarterback Brendan Carey to receiver Benjamin Drung. The successful convert put the home team up 14-8. The only other scoring in the game came from a 20 yard field goal by the Predators in the fourth quarter as both defenses continued their tenacious play. Final score of the game 17 - 8 Predators.

Jeremy Jones led the Sturgeon defense with eight tackles, including two quarterback sacks. Other leading tacklers for the Sturgeon were Mason Kett and Nick Paquette. On offence Josh Elsley scampered with the ball 13 times and hard running fullback Yenel Olivero carried it on 12 occasions.

The Sturgeon host their first doubleheader of the season this coming Sunday as the bantams host the Hamilton Panthers at 1 pm and the JV's play the Toronto Junior Argos, a team with an identical 3-1 record, at 3 pm. All Sturgeon games are contested at Norm Perry Park.

In other club action, the Bantams were also at Sir Wilfrid to take on the Bantam Twin City Predators where they took a loss with a final score of 41 - 7.

The Peewee Sturgeon were at home on the weekend hosting the Oakville Titans and won with a final score of 37 - 13.
