MARAUDERS ROLL PAST COUGARS
The A.N. Myer Marauders opened defence of their Niagara Region High School Athletic Association Tier 1 senior football title with a 46-0 victory Thursday night over the visiting Centennial Cougars.
Scoring for the Marauders were: TD passes from Ryan James to Mateo Corritore (65 yards), Winfield Organ (25 yards) and Dallas Bone (25 yards); rushing majors by Christian Kuriata (15 yards) and Jordan Gilbert (10 yards); 60-yard punt return for a TD by Trent Hunter; and, Bone added a field goal and a single point on a missed field goal.
Jeremiah Nyambiya rushed for 75 yards for the Marauders and quarterback James passed for 225 yards.
Performing well on defence for Myer were: Cedric Robinson, sack, fumble recovery and numerous tackles for losses; Kuriata, forced fumble and sack; and, Jacob Moody, fumble recovery.
REDCOATS OPEN STRONG
The visiting Governor Simcoe Redcoats opened the NRHSAA Tier 2 senior football season with a 45-0 victory over the St. Catharines Collegiate Saints.
Contributing to the Simcoe win were: Remy Galvanac, two rushing majors; Andrew Scott, kickoff return for a TD: Eric Wilson, fumble recovery for a TD: Nick Langelaan, rushing major; TD pass from Andrew Scott to Joe Fusek; Nick Spanyi with a safety; and, four converts by Danny Lewis.
“Today was a tough day,” Collegiate coach Nathan Greene said. “We had five players, including three who are starters, ineligible because the NRHSAA doesn’t have its eligibility meeting until next week.”
The squad also lost starting quarterback John Emmorey to a sprained knee and had two of its two linemen away for personal reasons.
“On a positive note, 18 players got their first football experience and the benefits of these game speed reps is immeasurable,” Greene said.
For Collegiate: Cam Scott was 4-9 passing for 40 yards and also rushed for 22 yards; and, Sheldon Brown had a strong game turning plays destined for losses into positive gains.
