Atoms beat the Nomads A team 69-7. The offense seems to have sorted out the issues it had the week previous against the Mustangs with several touchdowns by running backs Ishamani Lewin and Cian Campbell. Quarterback Steven Schanel not only threw for two touchdowns to Brayden Kaprusek but he also ran several times for first downs, a touchdown and successful converts.
The offense has improved dramatically with solid blocking from the offensive line while the defense was again solid only giving up a touchdown on a broken play. There was also an interception return for a touchdown by Jacob Burym and a strip that resulted in a long run into Nomads territory by Nick Gofman. Special teams were again solid, with Hugh Montgomery recovering a kickoff and returning a kickoff for a long touchdown.
The Atom boys now have a bye week before playing the Eastman Raiders in Steinbach on the 21st.

Greendell’s peewee team stormed to a 25-0 win over the North End Nomads on Sunday in a “mud bowl” at the Nomads field.
Majors were tallied by QB Caullin Moniot, RB Lewis Neegin, and two scores by Safety Trae Tomlinson (punt and kick returns).
The hard fought victory came amidst extremely wet conditions where nothing was going right for either team early on. The falcon defense was the equivalent of a living brick wall that kept the Nomads at bay and for a negative total offensive yardage.
With the extremely wet weather and field conditions, the offensive game plan, that involved a significant amount of passing, was thrown out the window forcing the team to rely on shear will and determination to move the ball through deep mud puddles. Well done Falcons!
