Avalanche now 0-3 on the season


None

The Avon View Avalanche were defensively solid on Sunday, Sept. 30, when they hosted the Dr. John Hugh Gillis High School team from Antigonish, but offensively, they needed some work.

The conditions on the field were wet, and this got worse as the half-time break came to a close and the skies opened up. Both teams were scoreless heading into the fourth quarter. Then, the Antigonish school scored a pair of touchdowns, defeating the Avalanche 14-0.

Avalanche quarterback Cory Whitney threw for 40 yards, making five of 12 pass completions. He carried the ball seven times for 65 yards, out of a total of 105 offensive yards on the afternoon. 

Matt Brison carried the ball for Avon View five times for a total of 40 yards.

Justin Crossley and Brandon Hirschfield both made interceptions, but the turnovers didn’t result in any points for the Avalanche.

AJ Whitehead continued to dominate on the defensive line, making 14 tackles. Kyle Isnor was also impressive, adding eight tackles.  

The Avalanche will take on the J.L. Illsley Judges in Halifax Oct. 7 and will be looking for a strong offensive line to help them get their first victory of the season.

On Oct. 14, the hometown team will return to Windsor to host Central Kings Gators for a 1 p.m. start.
