Spears score 21 unanswered points to win in varsity action friday night

Niagara Spears Varsity team traveled to Cambridge to play the Lions on Friday evening in OVFL action. Mid way through the first quarter the spears lined up for a punt in their own zone. The snap went over the punters head and the Lions recovered the ball on the Spear 25 yard line. A few plays later the Lions looked to have scored on a QB naked bootleg by number 10, Cory Prince. The play was called back on a holding penalty by the lions. The drive ended on a field goal by #85, Michael McKnight at 8:46 of quarter one.

Early in the second quarter the lions went ahead by a 10 to 0 score when running back #3, Josh Jamieson scampered 40 yards for a score that electrified the home crowd. Unfortunately for the home team the scoring and momentum went in the other direction.

With the home team leading 10 to 0 with 3:19 remaining in the half, the lions appeared to have picked off the spears deep in their end. But the play was nullified by a lion facemask penalty. The same drive saw the visitors score their first touchdown by #13, Devon Egerter, on a five yard outside run at 2:49. Kosta Krajisnik, #94, converted the touchdown. Krajisnik kicked a 1 point rouge on the ensuing kickoff.

Before the end of the first half, with 53 seconds remaining, Egerter scored his second TD, this time on a 18 yard pass reception. Halftime score 14 to 10 spears after unsuccessful 2 point try.

The second half saw both teams defences play exceptionally well. The only score of the second half was by the spears #86, Jake Harper, on a 30 yard pass reception. Krajisnik converted the TD. Final score 21 to 10 for Niagara.
