WEEK 4 RC GAME OF THE WEEK:
NA OVER NI
NA over NI: 31-13
In local HBS IM Sports action, the Juggernaut Section A squad continued to assert its dominance with a 31-13 victory over Section I.ÿ On a windy Autumn day, the Pandas jumped out to an early 6-0 lead thanks to Carle Stenmark’s 75-yard INT return for a touchdown on the opening drive.ÿ Following a Section I score that tied the game, QB Jeff Buening connected with Joe Pagliuca on a 4th down play to put the A-teamers up 12-6 at the half.ÿ While Buening struggled at times in the first half throwing with the wind, he finished the game with 4 TD’s and 1 INT, improving his season totals to 17 TD’s with only 3 INT’s.
CFL standout Rob Leblanc started the second half scoring with a TD catch from his back after he blazed through the Section I secondary.ÿ ÿAfter a strong defensive stand by the Pandas, the next offensive drive looked promising after a sprawling catch by Cynthia Samanian put the Pandas within 10 yards of the end zone.ÿ However, Buening’s next pass was picked off in the end zone and returned 105 yards for a Section I score, putting the game within reach at 18-13.ÿ That was the last time Section I would score.
Defensive play was amped, lead by Dan Brewer’s aggressive pass rush.ÿ Brewer finished the game with 3 sacks and a deflected pass to lead the effort.ÿ LeBlanc later followed with another touchdown, and Lauren “Drop It Like It’s” LaHatte, sealed the victory with an incredible one handed touchdown grab with 2 minutes to play.
Notes:ÿSection A is back in action Wednesday Oct. 20th at 5:30 PM against (recently) defeated Section E. ÿNote that NA is averaging 36 points/game, and the average margin of victory is over two touchdowns.ÿ It’s almost not fair..Also, with today’s win, NA clinched the #1 seed in the playoffs for the division!!
WEEK 4 EC GAME OF THE WEEK:
OI OVER OA
OI over OA: 69-14
Despite many still recovering from a weekend in Munich, OI looked sharp against OA, posting a 69-14 victory. OI’s stifling defense produced 8 interceptions (Cole VandenAkker – 5, Dustin Sedgwick – 2, Russ Warren – 1) and allowed only 14 points on the evening. OI’s 10 TD’s were spread evenly across a potent receiving crew, including a handful of touchdowns to standouts Kyle Gallary and Kathleen Herbert.
After a late TD by OA’s Larry Sadaka (which including some nifty use of a water hazard as a blocker), OI came to the line in the victory formation, ready to take a knee and end the route with only 0:25 seconds left on the clock. A little taunting by Rajeev “I pulled my hami” Varma enticed OI to run a few extra plays. After Cole VandenAkker pulled down a deep ball from Dustin Sedgwick to put OI in striking distance, it was only fitting that Sedgwick put an ankle-breaking move on Varma (not only was it ankle breaking, I think Varma pulled his hami on it it was so good) to run in the final touchdown. OI moves to 3-1 on the season and OA drops to 0-4.
