Junior football defences in mid season form
by Randy Pascal

The offenses were a long way from firing on all cylinders but the respective defences were in mid-season form as the SDSSAA Junior Football league launched their fall schedule on Wednesday at the James Jerome Sports Complex.

With three of the five touchdowns coming courtesy of either interceptions or fumble recoveries, and the remaining two majors set up by key turnovers, it was the defensive unit of the Confederation Chargers that would make the greater impact, leading the Valley lads to a 21-13 win over the Lo-Ellen Park Knights.

The game remained scoreless until the very last play of the opening quarter, at which point the tone for the contest was established, as Confederation defensive back Mason Tremblay picked off a pass at his own 35 yard line and bolted 75 yards, giving his team a 6-0 advantage.

Dylan Whitmell sailed the first of his three successful point after attempts between the uprights, adding one more point to the lead. About halfway through quarter two, Tremblay recorded his second interception of the game, this time in Lo-Ellen territory, and setting up a sequence of plays that would culminate with a 10 yard TD pass from quarterback Tyler Rose to none other than Tremblay.

More of the same in quarter three, except this time, it's Tyler Rex who would step up for the "pick six", as Confederation looked to be comfortably in control, ahead 21-0.

With under two minutes to play, things got interesting. First, a wayward toss in the Charger backfield was scooped up by lineman Chad Sweeney, who rambled half the distance of the field to paydirt, with Cameron Puro making good on the point after.

Moments later, Confederation fumbled the ball for a second time, and with only 11 seconds left to play, Puro weaved his way across the goal line, as the Knights came up just a few minutes short of rallying all the way back.
