TRURO – The Truro Tide climbed up the Nova Scotia Minor Football League atom division standings on Sunday with a solid 6-0 victory over the Halifax Argos.
Truro Tide football.
The Tide (3-3) moved the ball well on offense, but were unable to capitalize on opportunities.
A touchdown by Hayden Payson was all the Tide offense would need thanks to a great defense that allowed only a few first downs the entire afternoon.
The Tide now sit in fourth place in the Atom Division and are looking to finish the season strong on Saturday when they visit the Bedford-Sackville Saints at Bremner Field at noon.
The Truro Blue Bombers came away with an impressive 30-16 win over the South Shore Seahawks.
Kamryn Matheson had another outstanding game for the winning squad.
With the season winding down, the Bombers (3-2-2) are currently in fourth place. They have one more divisional game this weekend against the first-place Valley Bulldogs (5-1), who boast not only the highest-scoring offense but the top ranked defense as well.
Kick off is slated for 6pm Friday at the TAAC grounds.
The Truro Freightliners suffered a tough loss Saturday, falling to the first-place Timberlea Titans 15-0.
Both teams played very well, and the Freightliers had chances, but couldn’t put the ball in the end zone.
The Truro defense was very stingy, stopping the Titans several times in the red zone, including two big stops on the three-yard line.
Outstanding players on defence were George and James Siliboy, while Jesse Meùse and Brody Reyno were strong on offense.
The loss drops the Freightliners season record to 3-3 and leaves the team fighting to regain ground in the playoff picture.
Truro meets the Dartmouth Destroyers on Saturday at Burnside Field at 9 a.m.
