Varsity Stallions Win Against Clarington Tigers

The Huronia Stallions Varsity Football Team improved to 2-0 this season with a 22-0 victory over the Clarington Tigers.  Quarterback Tivon Cook led the offence with 233 passing yards and 2 touchdowns.  Connor Maxwell’s touchdown grab was very impressive as he broke several tackles and scored while dragging a defender into the endzone.  Adam Zussino caught the other Cook touchdown pass demonstrating fine route running in the process.  Tailback John Shields rushed for 86 tough yards and a touchdown against a stout Tigers run defence.  Jesse Alves was the leading Stallions receiver with 8 receptions for 99 yards.  The defence played extremely well yet again in week two and has only yielded 6 points all season.  Defensive Coordinator Taylor Shadgett said that the team had “a pretty good week of preparation,” and the Defence had “12 guys running to the ball” throughout the game.  He credited Linebackers Ryan Gallagher, Zac Keogh and Mat Telford with strong games on the Defensive side of the ball.  Gallagher was the leading tackler with 8 total tackles and a key interception.  The Stallions are on the road in week 3 at Sudbury.  

The Huronia Stallions Junior Varsity Football team battled hard with a tough experienced Burlington Stampeder team but ultimately succumbed to a 42-6 defeat to fall to 0-2 on the season.  The Stallions were down 21-6 at Halftime, but the game could have been much closer because of two red zone turnovers.  Tailback Matt Howe was a workhorse with a rushing touchdown and 117 tough rushing yards.  The defence was led by Linebacker Tyler Deckers who had several tackles for losses and a key interception.  Defensive End Dana McCardle had a strong game with three quarterback sacks.  The Stallions next game is Sunday at 4:30 against Chatham at the Barrie Sports Complex in Midhurst.

The Huronia Stallions Bantam Football Team lost 15-2 to Hamilton to drop to 0-2 on the season.  The defence played amazing football for the second week in a row, but once again got no help from the offence.  Top defensive players were Defensive Linemen Jacob Johnson and Jack Schneider and Linebackers Zac Guymer-Jacobs and Riley Leech.  Tailback Zac Creamer battled hard for every inch of ground in a tough hard hitting game.  The Stallions next game is this Sunday at 1 PM against Twin Cities at the Barrie Sports Complex in Midhurst.
