Avon View suffers 17-3 football home opener loss


WINDSOR – The Avon View Avalanche were coming off a huge 32-12 win over J.H. Gillis from Antigonish when they hosted their home opener on the weekend.

However, the hometown team could not sustain their offense against the strong Northeast Kings Titans Oct. 3.

The Titans scored three touchdowns, including one on an interception return, and defeated the Avalanche 17-3.

Eugenio Rocco kicked the lone field goal for the Avalanche.

“The Avalanche defence did an admirable job holding the Titans offence to only two major scores plus the interception return,” said Jim Bryan, the school’s athletics director.

Avon View is now 2-2 on the season while NKEC is 3-0.

The Avalanche won’t be playing the weekend of Thanksgiving but will be back in action Oct 18 at 1 p.m. at Avon View. They will take on West Kings, a team they defeated in their opening game of the season 18-14.
