OFC: Twin Cities Predators feast on competitionCFC Staff0 Comments
With many youngsters on this year’s team, replacing stars from last year, the coaching staff gave equal opportunity to their quarterbacks in pre-season. So far with a 2-0 start it seems the team is benefiting from that strategy.
First year Varsity Predator and quarterback Adam Christopher played well in the first half and threw for four touchdowns, on 7 of 15 passing for 114 yards. He also ran for 22 yards on three carries.
“Adam is in his first year as varsity Predator, and he has done a great job of spreading the ball around. One of his biggest assets is his speed, he can make a ton of plays with his feet,” said Predators coach Kevin Horn.
As the game moved into the second half it was time for the backup QB’s to take centre stage, as Todd Hoover and Addie Cober got the nod. Hoover played most of the 3rd quarter as Cober played the 4th.
“Both moved the ball well, as Todd had a TD pass and Addie scored on a QB sneak,” said Horn.
The team benefited from a great running and catching game from their receivers as well. Theshawn Berry had two touchdowns, Brandon Nickel with one and right before half-time, Brandon Loewen on a tipped deep ball. Running backs Nate Walker had a rushing TD and Kevin Kropf scored on a screen pass.
As the season progresses the team hopes to cut down on penalties as they were penalized 115 yards last week.
“This season we have a younger team which is replacing some of our stars from last season, because of that, they have needed lots of coaching on playing at our level and keeping in it mentally,” said Horn.
The senior squad will face off against the Clarington Knights this Saturday as they look to remain undefeated.
