TRURO – The Truro Freightliners suffered a 7-1 setback to the Halifax Argos on the weekend in the Bantam Division of the Nova Scotia Minor Football League.
The Freightliners (2-2) are fifth in the nine-team division while the Argos (3-1) lie fourth.
The Argos were unable to run the ball against the stingy Freightliner defense so they took to the air. Julianna Johnson broke up five pass plays which could have resulted in big gains for the Argos.
The Truro defence also got strong performances from Jesse Muse, Cole MacIssac, Maynard Wilson and Tyler Ball.
Truro is back in action Saturday when they take on the Cape Breton Panthers (1-3) at 1 p.m. in Cape Breton.
