TRURO - Here is a summary of this weekend games in the NS Minor Football Association.
Freights lose to Argos 7-1
The Truro Freightliners came into Friday's game looking for a second win, instead they found themselves looking for a second wind.
The Freightliners appeared to struggle with stamina several times during the game, but managed to keep things close all night against a very aggressive Halifax Argo team. The Defense played an absolutely outstanding game, and if not for a broken play that ended up giving the Argos six points, the game was a stalemate.
The Argos were unable to run the ball against the stingy Freightliner defense so they took to the air. Julianna Johnson was instrumental in breaking up 5 different pass plays that could have resulted in very big gains for the Argo offense. The defense would bend but did not break, with stellar performances from Jesse Muse, Cole MacIssac, Maynard Wilson and Tyler Ball keeping constant pressure on the quaterback and filling holes.
The Freightliners will have to improve on offense if they want to get back in the win column this week as they are preparing to play a very physical Cape Breton team on Saturday.
Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m.
Bombers 22- Destroyers 22
The Truro Blue Bombers are putting the Pee Wee division of the NS Minor Football Association on notice.
For the second week in a row, the Bombers came from 14 points down in the fourth quarter to tie the game. By achieving a tie against a very large Dartmouth roster, the players are developing the kind of character that will win big games down the stretch drive toward a Tier 1 playoff seeding.
The Bombers will come home this Friday night to face an ubeaten halifax Argo Team.
Kickoff is scheduled for 8 p.m. at the TAAC Grounds.
Titans 34-Tide 0.
The Truro Tide were looking to solidify their position as a Tier 1 Atom divison Contender, but were outplayed by a very strong, very skilled Timberla Titans team.
The Tide had no answer for Timberla's balanced attack. If the defense made a big stop on the run game, the Titans switched gears and threw the ball.
The Tide were unable to get much traction on offense, and never got close to the end zone.
The Tide defense made some big plays forcing two interceptions and two fumbles, but they just couldn't stop the Titan offensive attack.
The Tide look to rebound next week when they face the Undefeated Dartmouth Destroyers black team at Burnside field.
Kickoff is Saturday at 1 p.m.
