attack led the Canton Lions freshmen football team to an impressive
25-13 victory over the Rochester Redskins on Sunday.
The offensive blocking was strong thanks to yeoman efforts from David Mason, Carter Kahl, Julian Gocaj, Tyler Walton and Matthew Pelukas. Two touchdown runs by Victor Abraham and a quarterback sneak by Evan Voyles highlighted the scoring by the Lions offense. The defense was very stingy all day led by key tackles from Noah Brown, Joey Glunt, Cody Tapp and Colton (C.J.) Wieloch.
The varsity Lions dropped a 38-3 decision to the Redskins. Evan Thomas' 25-yard field goal in the first quarter was the Lions' only offensive score.
Michael San Millan and Sam Rizzo had solid offensive back performances. Dean Underwood, Zack Tinglan and Manmeet Singh had good results on the offensive line. Andrew Hunt deflected two passes on defense, while Anthony Kenney also contributed on tackles for the defense.
The Lions' JV turned in a valiant effort before falling, 28-14, to the visiting Redskins. The Lions' defensive line was led by Freddie McGhee, who came up with several big plays in the game.
The offense was led by running back Chucky Turfe, who scored a TD early in the game. In the second half, QB Robert Guajardo hooked up with tight end Jake Mallard for a long TD pass. Allonte Wheeler provided a big block on the play. Next week, the Lions will look to bounce back when they travel to Westland to take on the Comets.
The Lions' junior freshmen played a great game against the Redskins. The running game was fueled by strong blocking from Preston Parana, Kameron Arnold, Robby Begley and Nathan Hunt, resulting in touchdown runs from Steven Shoats-Thomas, Justin Reynolds and Darrell Harding, Jr.
The Lions' defense shutout the Redskins with exceptional tackling led by Kyle Hurley, Sheldon Lyall and Evan Peterson.
