"€œFootball is certainly a game of inches and bounces where anything can happen," said Jim Bryan, a coach with the Avon View Avalanche, following his team'€™s playoff loss on Nov. 15 in Wolfville.

This was certainly the case as the Avalanche dropped a 24-22 decision to Central Kings in their sudden death NSSAF Division III football semi-final.

The Avalanche offense struggled, with quarterback Devin Bryan completing only one of 12 passes while also throwing three interceptions.

Ryan Hebb garnered more than 200 multi-purpose yards in the loss, his fourth such game with that kind of yardage.

Hebb scored a touchdown, and even completed a pass for 50 yards.

Devin Sexton also carried the ball 13 times for 70 yards and a touchdown.

The Avalanche reached the Central Kings one-yard line twice in the fourth quarter but were called out for having too many men on one occasion while fumbling the ball the other time.

"€œIt was the fourth quarter before we could slow CK's air game down,"€ said Bryan.

The team will be losing Ryan Harvey, Dallas MacDonald, Darion Amos, Johnny Weagle, Patrick Petitpas, and Jordan Bauchman due to graduation. Bryan commended them on their three years of dedication to the team.
