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.
