Spartans Defeat Warriors
On a unseasonably warm day in late October, the Lorne Park Spartans moved to 5-0 with a 52 - 0 victory over the Port Credit Warriors on Thursday. It was a one sided victory but with Port Credit competing in Junior Football for the first time in over a decade and were shorthanded with injuries, it was still a good afternoon of football.
The offense came out ready to play well with Nathan DeMontagnac taking over as QB1 and the team didn't skip a beat, as Nathan was smooth in handoffs and showed off his speed and arm accuracy the entire afternoon. It was a great game for all the players on the offense to get a chance to get involved and the depth of talent was on full display. Gameday captain Braden Jauerning was able to get in to the endzone for 6 with a well executed route and run after catch. Erik Fyraj also made a case for more touches with a terrific catch and long run for a touchdown with a PC defender at his heels but Erik was simply too fast on this day. The offensive line kept Nathan and Francis St. Onge who took some reps at QB in the second half clean with technically sound blocking and first year player Mayar Turunji flashed his potential to be a star for the unit with his play. Team leaders Chey Charles and Liam Bowman both scored when the opportunity arose but Bowman did have some trouble returning punts, with a number of the returns ending up out of bounds.
Special teams were a strength on the warm afternoon with the Freight Train kickoff unit dominating field position with aggressive play. Contain man "Tom" Brady Farquharson had the special teams play of the game with a scoop and score on kickoff, the first of the season for the team. Francis St. Onge also was perfect on his first field goal attempt of the year to compliment a perfect day of point after conversions.
The defense recorded the shutout with a solid effort that kept Port Credit pinned on their side of the field for most of the game. Shadi "ET" Thomas had a pick for six that was once again denied by a penalty, a frustrating mistake the team will work to fix and first year player Kobe Buraconak flashed on the field with his first interception of the year, the first of many to come for the talented player. The defensive line unit of Will Martisek, Jeff Chen, Seamus Ingram and Nick Cruji really impressed with their playing time, as they were able to control the line and open up holes for linebackers Liam Jeewan, Max Henry and Carr "Hulk" Hogan who all had terrific afternoons inflicting their will on the PC backfield. It was a good performance from a unit that has shown its desire to be the best in Peel.
The Pump Offensive Player of the Game went to Nathan De Montagnac who showed his versatility once again, having now played corner and wide receiver, moving to quarterback and running the offense. The Pump Defensive Player of the Game went to nose tackle Jeff Chen, who has improved with every practice and he showed why he is a valuable part of the defensive unit with a terrific performance controlling the A gap.
The Spartans remain on the road this week, heading to face long time rival Mount Carmel on Friday, October 27 at 2:00pm at Our Lady of Mount Carmel's beautiful grass field.
