No. 3 Bernice MacNaughton 28-21 L’Odysee No. 2

McNully threw for 217 yards on the evening hitting WR Sam Moore and WR Parker McIntyre for TD’s. The other Highlander scores came from the legs of German exchange student TE Lance Krueger while McNully carried the other.

The Olympiens didn’t go down without a fight scoring 3 majors on the night themselves. L’Odysee’s TD’s came from the legs of QB Devin Niles, who also connected with WR Ben Cormier for another. Cormier also returned a kick off for his second TD on the night.

No. 1 Moncton HS 30-22 St. John HS No. 4

MHS battled until the end to beat a very tough pack of Hounds. Down by 8 and driving as time was running out QB Cassidy nearly connected for a TD pass, but the Knights Marc Hover intercepted the ball, giving his team the win.

The Knights Kyle Lewis and QB Kogler each added to the teams scoring.

No. 3 Riverview 14-7 Fredericton HS No. 2

In a repeat of the previous weeks game, this quarter final was a clash to see who would battle the Titans in the semi round.

The first half was all defence as neither team got on the clock. Shortly into the 3rd quarter RHS rookie RB Gregory Stoyles scored his first TD of the season. The Royals drove the ball shortly after, and after a 40 yard Grossman to WR Barton hook up, FB Brady Morrison slammed the ball one yard into the endzone.

The Black Kats struggled to move the ball on the Royals solidly staunch defence. The Kats took to the air in attempts to gain some momentum, which allowed DB Josh Armstrong to make 2 picks on the night.
The Kats only TD came late in the fourth after they recovered a botched special teams snap on the Royals 1 yard line.

Semi Final Preview

No. 1 Tantramar Titans vs Riverview Royals No. 3, Saturday November 4, 1pm at TRHS

This semi final game has all the makings of another classic between these rival programs. The last time they met in week 5 the Titans blew a 13 point halftime lead, losing to RHS 27-26 in a game that came down to the Titans missing a 2 point convert attempt with 4 seconds left.

The Royals bring an aerial wrecking crew behind QB Grossman and his primary WR’s Green and Burton. The Royals ground game has gained defences respect the past few weeks with RB Stoyles getting the bulk of the carries.
Since the regular season loss the Titans have been expecting to play Riverview again, and bring with them a loaded offence with QB Vogels the dynamic duo of RB’s Longpre and Prescott.

Both teams defences have had outstanding seasons, and each needs to figure out a way to slow down the multi threats each team brings to the Marsh Saturday.

No. 1 Moncton Purple Knights vs Bernice MacNaughton Highlanders No. 3, Friday November 3,Β  8pm, at Rocky Stone

The Knights head coach John Allenach set out this season with the objective of improving his teams record agains the provinces top programs. To this point MHS has defeated some of those teams, but did not face the Highlanders in the regular season.

The Highlanders entered the post season with a losing record, but when you look closely at the losses, they were most often close.Β  To get here they had to beat #2 L’Odysee, a team they lost to in the regular season.

The Knights have remained first in a tight division, but were pounded by #5 Leo Hayes week 7, and just beat SJHS in the quarter final. The Highlanders bring an offence that passed for over 200 yards last week, something they have quietly done all season.
