Pee­wee Ti­tans suf­fer sec­ond loss of sea­son


The sun was shin­ing and the crisp­ness of fall was in the air Sun­day af­ter­noon as the pee­wee foot­ball Ti­tans stepped onto the David A Jar­dine field for game two of their reg­u­lar sea­son.

Af­ter a dis­ap­point­ing loss the pre­vi­ous week­end in their home opener against the Monc­ton Raiders, the Ti­tans were ea­ger for a win against the Riverview Raiders.

As the game got un­der­way, it was ev­i­dent both teams came pre­pared for a bat­tle.

Al­though the Ti­tans were once again out­matched in the size de­part­ment, that didn’t stop them, as the de­fence came out strong.

By the end of the first quar­ter, nei­ther team was able to get on the score­board, but Riverview stepped up their game in the sec­ond, notch­ing two ma­jors but fail­ing on both con­verts, which sent the teams into the sec­ond half with a score of 12-0.

Early in the third, the Ti­tans’ Nel­son Hicks notched the first in­ter­cep­tion of the game, but the home team’s of­fence failed to cap­i­tal­ize on the op­por­tu­nity.

De­spite strong ef­forts from Jack Arse­nault and Ethan Do­herty in run­ning the ball, the Ti­tans’ of­fence con­tin­ued to strug­gle.

Mean­while, the Roy­als No. 11 proved he was up for the chal­lenge, break­ing through the Ti­tans’ de­fen­sive line sev­eral times and find­ing the end zone.

The Ti­tans bat­tled hard the whole game, with strong show­ings from sev­eral first and sec­ond year play­ers, in­clud­ing Brett Holmes, Kara Steeves, Do­herty, Arse­nault and Hicks, but in the end the fi­nal score was 31-0 for the Roy­als, re­sult­ing in the Ti­tans’ sec­ond dis­ap­point­ing loss of the sea­son.

The Ti­tans will no doubt be spend­ing this week work­ing hard to ad­dress any ar­eas where they’ve fallen short.

Their next game will be held at the Mount Al­li­son Alumni Field this com­ing Mon­day at 1 p.m. against the Monc­ton War­riors.
