Bedford 8, Truro 0
The Truro defence played well throughout the game and was led by Preston Lattie, who had eight tackles.
The offence struggled in the first half, but really turned it up in the second half, led by Daesean Brown.
The Tide look to bounce back on Sept. 29 when they host the Valley/Fall River Dragons at 10 a.m.
The Truro mites played two great games at the Dartmouth Jamboree at the RBC Centre football field on Sept. 21.
The first game was played against the Timberlea Titans, who proved to be strong opponents. Truro players worked hard on both sides of the ball and learned a lot of valuable skills.
Truro’s second game was played against the Fall River Dragons, where the defence made big plays and the offence scored a number of touchdowns.
The Sept. 28 jamboree will be played in Bedford. Truro will face Timberlea Titans and Valley Bulldogs.
