Plymouth-Canton Steelers varsity football team rocked the visiting
Westland Meteors, 40-12, Saturday night on homecoming night. The
offense was led by a breakout performance from Vincent Crespi, who
opened huge holes on the offensive line. Nick Poet did an outstanding
job of blocking and anchoring the offensive line from his tight end
position while Andy Gregor's physical play helped the Steelers move the
ball consistently downfield.
Philip Avaramoski led the defense and Josh Morris' play on the defensive line stopped the Meteors in their tracks.
DEFENSE SHINES FOR JV UNIT
The Steelers' junior varsity squad registered another win, defeating the Meteors, 12-7. The offensive line was paced by Ryan Broughman, Kevin McGee and Bradley Deeg, who opened up holes for the running backs, including Evan Flohr, who ran for several first downs. Key defensive players were Evan "Bubba" Sawers at noseguard and linebacker Jordan Harlow.
The Steelers' freshmen stopped the Meteors, 27-0. David Dart, Jr. anchored the O-line from his center position with a lot of assistance from Billy Flohr and Nicholas Polydoras on the "gold" offensive line. The defense was led by the strong play of Joey Ahearn and Luke Walkley, among others.
JUNIOR FRESHMEN EXCEL
The junior freshmen dominated the first half against the Meteors, running 29 offensive plays to the visitors' eight. Defensively, Dean "The Freight Train" Kaye recovered a pair of fumbles while Seth "Blitz" Troszak registered a quarterback sack. Offensively, Jake Cain gained hard-fought first downs with second-effort runs while Nick "Wrecking Ball" Prevo and Logan "Hot Wheels" Walkley carried the bulk of the rushing load. Walkley scored a touchdown in the fifth consecutive game.
The hard-hitting play of Ian "Godzilla" Gozdor, Troszak and Kaye limited the Meteors' running game in the second half. Jackson "Big Country" King, Ben "Game Face" Wright and Walkley brilliantly contained the outside edges and took away the Meteors' passing game.
