The Fratmen, Beefs and Hurricanes each win

Windsor AKO Fratmen 40
Ottawa Sooners 23

The Fratmen ran their record to 3-1 with their third straight victory executing a well balanced attack gaining 141 yards on the ground and 87 through the air.  Quarterback Brandon Reaume again was stellar with seven completions for 187 yards and threw a touchdown pass to Devon Woods.  It was Reaume’s legs however that did the most damage racing nine times for 54 yards and three touchdowns.

Defensively the Fratmen confused the Sooners the majority of the night.  Jacob Benson had 2.5 sacks and Spencer Trinier had a pair of interceptions.

The Sooners were without starting quarterback Tyler Scott but Evan Yourth stepped up very nicely.  He was 13 of 15 for 177 yards and threw three touchdowns.  Malcolm Carter, Dylan Kazda and Enzo Trunzo each hauled in a major.

The Fratmen (3-1) will travel to London for a date with the Beefeaters (3-0) on Saturday night.  The Sooners (0-4) on the other hand will travel to Toronto to face the GTA Grizzlies (0-3) on Sunday.

London Beefeaters 33
Niagara Regional Raiders 30

It was a heck of a finish as the Beefeaters scored in the late stages of the contest to keep their undefeated record alive.

Quarterback Clarke McCallum finished 14 of 21 for 254 yards and threw a pair of touchdown passes, one each to Hayden Amis and Kennedy Magee.  McCallum scored a touchdown on the ground on the strength of eight carries and 43 yards.

One of the bright spots on the defensive side was Oscar Reddecop who collected two sacks.

The Raiders easily played their best game of the season with quarterback Bryson Mitchell leading the offence with 17 completions for 250 yards and threw three majors.    Two touchdowns were caught by Kale Rive who made seven receptions in total for 105 yards.  John Peele hauled in the other TD.

The defence gave the Beefeaters all they could handle as they recorded three sacks.

The Beefeaters (3-0) will host the Windsor AKO Fratmen (3-1) in a first place showdown on Saturday night while the Raiders (0-3) welcome the Hamilton Hurricanes (2-1) on Sunday.

Hamilton Hurricanes 21
GTA Grizzlies 0

Fittingly there was a very strong wind in Hamilton on Monday which effected the Labour Day Classic between the Hurricanes and GTA Grizzlies.  As a matter of fact the teams combined for 124 yards of passing due to the windy conditions.

On the ground the Hurricanes collected 224 yards, led by David Adeniran who rushed 18 times for 148 yards and a touchdown.
Defensively the Canes got on the board when Tyler Kelly picked up a fumble and rumbled 25 yards for a major.    As a unit they held the Grizzlies to just 54 yards on the ground and tallied four sacks.

This coming Sunday the Hurricanes (2-1) travel to Niagara to face the Regional Raiders (0-3) while the Grizzlies (0-3) are at home to the Ottawa Sooners (0-4).

The Huskies and Rifles each collect their third win

Winnipeg Rifles 42
Calgary Colts 22

On paper one would find the final score hard to believe.  The Colts racked up 507 yards of total offence, 372 of which was through the air. Compare those numbers to the Rifles who tallied 367 yards of total offence and the question pops up.

That said the Rifles raised their record to 3-1 as they enter a bye week.   Running back Micheal Ritchott rushed 14 times for 158 yards and had two touchdowns.  He also returned a punt 81 yards for a score.

Quarterback Riley Naujoks shared time with Jonathan Remple.  Naujok threw four completions, two of which were for touchdowns; one to Alexander Tachinski and the other to Griffin Shillingford.

On the defence Troy Bennett had a game high 10 tackles and Colin Simon had a pair of sacks.

The Colts on the other side appeared to have no problems moving the ball.  Quarterback Bailey Wasdal was 35 of 48 for 372 yards and threw a touchdown pass to Jesse Kuntz.  The major was just one of 11 receptions for Kuntz who also collected 118 yards.

Running back Dylan Minshull rushed a game high 22 times for 138 yards and a touchdown.  Wasdal also ran in a major.

The Rifles (3-1) and Colts (1-3) each have a bye heading into Week 7.

Edmonton Huskies 33
Edmonton Wildcats 0

The Huskies passing game was outstanding behind quarterback Brad Launhardt.  The reigning All-Canadian was 25 of 35 for 286 yards and threw two touchdowns; one caught by Brandt Burzuk the other by Tanner Buchanan.  Meanwhile Burzuk also rushed 15 times for 63 yards and a touchdown.

On the defensive side the Huskies forced four turnovers.  Oshane Samuels had a fumble recovery and a blocked kick.  Donovan Burgmaier also recovered a fumble while Gaetano Minto intercepted a pass.

Over on the other side of the field three different Wildcat quarterbacks were 12 of 30 for 178 yards and six different receivers hauled in a pass.

The CJFL’s leading tackler Jayden Dalke tallied an incredible 14 solo tackles.  He now has 38 tackles through four games.

The Huskies (4-0) and Wildcats (0-4) enter the bye week then will face each other again coming out of the bye.
