NSSAFFL RECAP (7): Bennett powers Flames past Cheetahs, CFC#24 Phoenix still perfect

Under Friday Night Lights at Bedford Hammonds Plains Turf, Adam Bennett sprinted downfield for a 55 yard touchdown score and rushed for 130 yards as Sir John A MacDonald Flames evened up their regular season series with Charles P Allen Cheetahs 20-10 in Nova Scotia Student Athletic Federation Football League (NSSAFFL) Division 1 action.

Josh Finfold tallied a 60 yard major and rushed for 75 yards rushing overall in the win.  He also caught an interception.

The Flames defence had three interceptions and a forced fumble in the game.

“The keys of the game were that the offensive line was physical and got a good push up front,” commented Flames Head Coach Paul Moore after the game.  “Our defence created four turnovers and Adam Bennett had another great rushing game.”

“Defensively, we had a good pass rush and the secondary played physical against their receivers and created turnovers. We also tackled very well.”

With this win, the Flames are now tied with the Cheetahs for second place with 3-3 records.
