Golden Hawk alumni & friends of the football program,
This newsletter is brought to you by our great friends and the best movers AMJ Campbell.
Back to back big wins! We went down the 401 to Windsor to play the Lancers this past weekend and came away with a decisive 52-10 victory. This was our most complete game in all three phases.
We amassed close to 600 yards of offence and 34 first downs and only needed to punt the ball 3 times all game. We really spread the ball around as 12 different offensive players touched the football. On the ground we totalled 202 yards rushing, 82 coming from RB Levondre Gordon and 40 coming from FB Osayi Iginuan who also had a touchdown. Through the air QB Connor Carusello had his best game ever as a Hawk! Connor was 23 of 31 for 374 yards and 4 TD’s. Connor’s favorite targets were WR Ente Eguavoen with 8 receptions for 157 yards and a TD and WR Nick Petermann who had 9 receptions for 110 yards and a TD. Many other receivers found the endzone including TD receptions from Kavantye Bailey from 42 yards away, Brentyn Hall from 5 yards out and Julian Mitchell from 20 yards. Late in the game the offence didn’t slow down as QB Jacob Spinella got some game action and was a perfect 2 of 2 for 15 yards and a TD pass.
We held another offence to very few yards on Saturday afternoon as Windsor only created 235 yards of offence all day. The pass defence was incredible as the Windsor quarterbacks were just 9 of 31 for 136 yards. We had 3 pass breakups one each by DB Ayo Ajayi, DB Christian Hutter-Coppin and LB Shomari Hutchinson. Shomari also had a great interception and returned it 20 yards. Late in the forth quarter another DB got an interception as Patrick James picked one off, which setup another touchdown drive. Part of those low numbers passing were also due to the pressure we put on the quarterbacks, which included 3 sacks on day, one by LB Tommy Bringi and two by defensive end Jeremiah Marriott. Leading the way in tackles was all 3 members of the linebacking core: Shomari Hutchinson had 6.5, Tommy Bringi with 5.5 and LB Brad Cowan had 5.
Kicker Nathan Mesher wasn’t busy as a punter and only had 3 all afternoon, but as a kicker he was very busy. Nathan was a perfect 3 for 3 on field goals, hitting from 43, 15 and 23 yards, he also had 5 kickoffs. In the return game WR Romy Simpson was in charge and was very elusive totalling 5 returns for 58 yards. Cover teams were very solid stopping the talented Windsor returners. Leading the way was DB Chris Haggart who had 3 tackles, which included tackling the ball carrier well short of the first down on a Windsor punt fake.
