Avalanche crushed 72-0 in home opener


None

The Avon View Avalanche football team has its work cut out for them.

Following a crushing 72-0 loss on Sunday, Sept. 8, football coach Jim Bryan told the Journal he deplores the scheduling system now in place in the NSSAF Football Conference.

He described the Sunday afternoon's pasting of his Avalanche football squad by CP Allen, of Bedford, as "horrible."

Bryan told the Journal that with the conference not relegating Division I and Division II categories anymore, it will be a long, trying season.

Avon View's starting quarterback Cory Whitney was unable to play this past Sunday as he was with the Windsor Midget A ball team in New Waterford. Back up quarterback Matt Brison did his utmost with an offense and defense that looked lost.

Bryan described CP Allen as “one of the top three high school teams in the province this season.”

The Avalanche’s head coach said he’s hopeful the two experienced linemen he has — Luke Gillette and Jordan Card — will shoulder some strength.

Besides Whitney and Brison, JJ Chambers, who will be the defensive captain this year, and Ben Galbraith are the only other Grade 12 students in the line-up.

Next up for the Avalanche is another home game. This time it will be against Prince Andrew, out of Dartmouth. Game time is 4:30 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 16.  

Following that game, Avon View will head for Sydney Academy on Sept. 20 for a clash with a first year expansion team in the NSSAF.

Bryan said the Avalanche should expect the expansion team to be competitive as the area has had a minor football program in place for a number of years.
