CCI seniors win season gridiron opener 0
For the second year in a row, the CCI Sr Fighting Owls opened their seaon in Innisfil where they faced the Nantyr Shores Tritons, in a battle of Black and Gold. The visiting Owls donned their white jerseys for the contest, and came away with a 15-2 victory.
The Owls defence dominated the opening quarter, not allowing the Tritons to create a single first down. The CCI offence rolled with QBs Liam Jacques (5/10 passes, 52yds passing, 3yds rushing) and Tristan Huycke (10/15 passes, 70yds passing, 11yds rushing) alternating series through the entire game.
Jacques moved the offence in on their first possession to score on a four-yard TD run by rookie RB Drew Werbitsky (24yds rushing) before Jacques connected on a two-point conversion pass to WR Brydon Parker (41yds rec) to put the Owls up by eight points.
Three short plays Tristan Huycke led the offence in another drive that resulted in another CCI TD in the form of a 1 one-yard carry by RB Isaac McGladdery (2yds rec / 10 yds rushing). CCI completed their scoring when Zack Jackson (7 tackles) tackled the Tritons kick returner in the endzone to score a single point safety.
The CCI defence kept the pressure on the Tritons the entire game. Veterans Danny Caesar & Josh Davie each recorded QB sacks, and rookie DB Mike Hunter ended defensive play with an interception late in the 4th quarter.
Both Junior & Senior teams will be in action on Tuesday Sept 25th 2012 when they head to Barrie to play Joan of Arc. The Juniors will be kicking off their season at 1pm followed by the Senior game at 3pm.
