Dartmouth Destroyers Black 28- Truro Tide 0
The Truro Tide went to Dartmouth on Saturday looking to recover from their shutout loss to the Timberlea Titans last week, but instead found themselves facing an undefeated Dartmouth Black Squad that has only given up six points all season.
Unfortunately for the Tide, the Destroyer defense proved to be too much and they were unable to generate any offense.
Despite the loss, the Tide (2-3) still are in contention for a tier 1 playoff spot and will be home on Sunday for a 10 a.m. kickoff against the Halifax Argos (1-4).
