Lopsided win for NKEC
Avalanche football team stumbles leading up to semifinal
The Avon View Avalanche football team went to Canning on Oct. 29 with hopes of securing homefield advantage for their divisional semifinal playoff game with the Northeast Kings Titans on Nov. 5.
The Avalanche started strong and kept pace with the Titans throughout the first half.
AV scored their first touchdown on a quarterback sneak by Jack Sheehan to take a 7-6 lead.
Later, the Northeast Kings team scored a two-point converted touchdown and went ahead 22-13.
Tyler Eddy caught another 40yard pass to bring the Avalanche back to within one point at 22-21.
However, with less than a minute remaining, the Titans struck again for another TD and no convert for a 28-21 lead at the half.
The Avalanche’s momentum collapsed post half-time as the Titans racked up 22 unanswered points for a 50-21 victory.
The Titans hosted the Avalanche again Nov. 5, with the winner advancing the following weekend to the NSSAF Division 2 Championship Football finale.
