The Niagara Generals posted yet another big win, a 45-13 victory over the Waterloo Warriors. The home side played very well in the first half against the Generals, moving the ball against the stout Generals’ defence as well as holding the potent Niagara offence to one touchdown.
However, a Brett Wall pick-6 and Hudson Grant kick-off return had the league-leading Niagara squad ahead 19-7 at halftime.
The second half saw the Generals kick into high gear and score 26 points, and the Waterloo squad just couldn’t keep up.
In all, Luis Corredor-Reyes scored three TDs, Wall two TDs, Hudson Grant and Mark Hazzouri got one TD each. Hazzouri also added a convert.
The defence got two picks, Wall and Lox Raducanu, while Spencer McRae recorded a safety.
That wraps up the regular season for the Generals who finished with a perfect 6-0 record.
This weekend will be the start of playoffs with a game against the Waterloo Warhawks at home at Kiwanis Field.
The Peewee Generals finished the regular season 5-1 after a 43-18 loss to the Brantford Bisons.
Scoring for the Generals were Jake Brewster with a 15-yard touchdown down reception, Layken Crawford with a 70-yard kick return and Sawyer Grant with a five-yard rushing touchdown. Carson Groves had a fumble recovery.
“It’s not the way we wanted to finish the regular season, but I am still very optimistic about this team heading into the playoffs. We just have to focus and rebound. I have faith things will fall into place and they will learn from the loss. We can’t worry about the regular season record. Now we must focus on the playoffs,” peewee coach Cliff Miler said.
For the first playoff game, the Niagara Generals will be playing the Hamilton Junior Tiger-Cats at home at Kiwanis Field this weekend.
The Atom Generals dropped a 36-6 decision to the Brantford Bisons.
“Our guys played their best against a very strong Bisons team. Unfortunately, we came up short today,” atom coach Andrew Lewis said. “The offence had a difficult time moving the ball down field most of the game. We did have several good runs but we were only able to capitalize on one-yard drive when Jorge Luis Corredor Reyes drove it in for a major. The main issue for our offence today was we failed to block and the O-line had issues with holding back the Bisons defence.
“Defensively, we had some good stops but the Bisons were able to break through on a few drives in the first half and then another in the second half.
“I know our guys gave it their all out there today and we did our best to put points on the board. Unfortunately, we were down a few guys today due to injuries which definitely hurt us as a group.”
This weekend the Atom Generals will travel to Guelph to play the Junior Gryphons.
