The Truro Blue Bombers took over sole possession of third place with a 22-12 win over the Timberlea Titans on Friday in Nova Scotia Minor Football League peewee division action.
The Bombers (3-2) behind early in the first quarter, but dominated on both sides of the ball from that point on with Riley Carmichael and Cameron Crowe leading the way offensively.
Defensively, the Bombers smothered the Titans repeated attempts to sweep outside after the first quarter and was impenetrable up the middle with Mackie Hart, Dylan Benoit and Julianne Johnson providing the biggest punch.
The Bombers now shift their focus to the South Shore Seahawks on Saturday. Kickoff at the Kinsman Field in Bridgewater is 2 p.m.
The Truro Freightliners (1-4) hung tough with the Timberlea Titans, but fell 26-12 on Friday night at the TAAC Grounds.
The Titans scored two quick touchdowns in the first quarter, taking an early lead with little resistance. However, the Freightliners dug deep and produced their best team effort to date by scoring two touchdowns of their own.
Trailing 20-12, Truro had two opportunities at the Timberlea goal line, however, the Freightliners failed to penetrate the Titans defence and came away empty.
The Titans added another touchdown with seconds left of the clock to ice the game.
The Freightliners have a bye next week, and return to action on Oct. 19 against the Halifax Argos at the TAAC Grounds at 8:30 p.m.
The Truro Tide (1-4) lost their fourth straight, a 19-0 setback at the hands of the Halifax Argos.
The defense was a big contributor for the Tide with Hayden Payson leading the way on numerous tackles. Lachlan Zann-Roland also contributed with a few tackles and an interception that helped to keep the game close.
The Tide look to get back into the win column on Saturday when they travel to Bridgewater to face the first-year South Cshore Seahawks at noon.
