Moncton High (2-1) 27, Fredericton High (2-1) 24

Coming into this game the FHS Black Kats had outscored their opponents 100-7, but a solid Purple Knight squad declawed the Kats, handing them their first loss of the year.

The Kats led 7-6 at the half, but by the start of the 4th quarter the Knights had fought back, leading leading 27-10 at the start of the fourth.

FHS came into the game hoping to prove they were a real threat and battled back in the fourth, scoring 14 unanswered points.  With 3 seconds left on the clock and down by 3,  the Kats took a shot at the endzone from their own fifteen, which was batted down by a MHS defender, giving the Knights the win.

Purple Knight QB Kogler led the team with runs and touchdowns, and also contributed on the defensive unit.

Kats running backs Ethan Stairs and Sam London provided a deadly attack which will give great programs a challenge to stop.

Mathieu Martin (1-2) 35,  Harrison Trimble (0-3) 0

The Mathieu Martin Matador’s not only won their first game since October 2014, they did so by shutting out the Harrison Trimble Trojans 35-0.  Justin Pineau had two TD’s on the day, running one in and catching another. Brice Raiche scored once on offence and returned a punt for another major, while defensive stand out Tristan Richard also returned a punt for a touchdown.

Defensively the Matadors LB’s Xavier Malone and Christian Paulin played “lights out” according to coach Murray.

Matador head coach is already focused on facing the undefeated Titan’s next week, but is relishing this victory:

“The win brings new challenges for us. None of us have had the feeling of success. Never prepared with a win behind us, the boys have people coming form everywhere saying awesome job. It’s new. It’s fun, but we have to keep locked on.”

Riverview (3-0) 35, L’Odysee  (2-1) 7

This battle of undefeated programs saw the Royals improving to 3-0, handing the Olympiens their first loss of the season. RHS has outscored their opponents thus far 86-16.

Royals QB Logan Grossman gave post game props to the teams ‘stellar’ defence: “They’re gelling well together this year, lead by captain DE Aidan Steves, who’s a nightmare for opposing offences”

Grossman connected with receivers three times for TD’s, hitting Jackson Green twice in the endzone, each time on a thirty plus yard pass. Grossman also connected on a 64 yard reception and TD to Cody Barton, while Brady Morris ran the other TD in.

The Royals will face their toughest challenge to date this week against a battle tested MHS Purple Knights.

St. John (2-1) 21, Leo Hayes (0-3) 13

The Hounds improved to 2-1 while the Lions dropped to 0-3, a stark contrast from last seasons undefeated regular season group.
