OFC: Varsity Stampeders keep rolling

GAME RECAP AND SUMMARY BY JOHN METCALFE

The Burlington Stampeders Varsity squad moved their season record to 4-0 with a convincing 42-14 win over the Brantford Bison in Ontario Football Conference summer action on June 16th.  The game was played at Ron Joyce Stadium at McMaster University as a result of the field at the Wayne Gretzky Complex being closed by the City of Brantford on June 12th.

#CFC 100 Jordan Lyons and Josh Palmer led the way for the Stamps with two majors apiece.  Lyons ran in from 4 and 5 yards while Palmer hooked up with pivot Clark McCallum from 8 and 59 yards away.  Nori Kaltsidis burst in from 4 yards out.  Adam Preocanin hit on field goals from 36 and 16 yards, added a rouge on a wide field goal and booted 3 converts.  Justin Veltri hooked up with holder Connor Knight for a 2 point convert as well.  Bison quarterback Matt Krason hooked up with Andre Toic from 34 and 7 yards out with Toic converting both scores.  Bison dropped to 2-2 as a result of the setback.

Both teams return to action this coming weekend.  On June 20th, the Bison will finally hit the home turf as they host the Chatham Kent Cougars.  Bantam action kicksoff at 11:00 a.m. followed by Junior Varsity at 2:00 p.m. and Varsity at 5:00 p.m.

The Stampeders will host four games on June 21st.  The PeeWee Stamps face Forest City Thunderbirds at 9:00 a.m. followed by the Bantams at 11:00 a.m.  Junior Varsity Stamps will host Sarnia Sturgeon at 1:30 p.m. and then the Varsity Stampeders and Thunderbirds commence at 4:30 p.m.

BISONS LOSE TO BURLINGTON – WRITTEN BY BRAD WARD

The Brantford Bisons lost their second game in a row after being trounced by the Burlington Stampeders 42-14 on Tuesday night. The Bisons fall to 2-2 on the season while the Stampeders gained a tie for first place with a 3-0 record.

The Bisons opened the game with two good offensive drives but the first one stalled on the Stampeders side of the field while the second one ended a scoring opportunity with a quarterback Matt Krason interception. After that, it was all Stampeders as they controlled the game with a balanced offensive attack that led to a 28-7 halftime lead and a tough defense that contained runningback Tristan Almas throughout the game. Krason had a good  game passing, throwing two touchdown passes to receiver Andre Toic who also kicked the converts for the Bisons 14 points but the Stampeders answered with points of their own in the second half for the 42-14 victory.

“We came out flat and never really got into the game tonight. Give credit to Burlington, they played with energy and kept us off balance the entire game. said Kelly Ireland, head coach for the Bisons.

The Bisons have a short week to prepare for their next opponent, the Chatham Cougars during the Bisons Homecoming game which will take place on Saturday, June 20th at Bisons Alumni field. Kickoff is scheduled for 5pm.
