Game Story: Battle River Shock 2
SHOCK LICK WOUNDS AFTER 34-6 LOSS TO TICATS: For many on the SHOCK it was their 1st taste of regular season Midget play and it showed. After a quick score by the TiCats, just minutes into the game, the SHOCK answered back with a blazing 61 yard run by Darion Hippe on the SHOCK’s 2nd offensive play of the game. Unfortunately, that was about it.
Quarterback Corson Clarkson gets the Black and Blue award for hanging in there and running for his life behind an offensive line that had their hands full with a powerful TiCat D-line. Nicole Davis was a shining light on the O-line. Jason Rivet also looked quick when given the opportunity to run.
Despite giving up 34 points, the SHOCK Defence had their moments, save for giving up some big plays to the TiCats #80. Ian Krause was the most valuable on defense, showing great speed on his way to leading the team in tackles and picking up a Quarterback sack. Other standouts on defence were Nolan Meagher, Mark Streberg, and Josh Prevost. Anthony Rodgers looked sharp on Special Teams.
The SHOCK finished minus 5 in the turnover battle. The good news… there’s 6 more games coming up, and with a quick turn around, the SHOCK can be celebrating their 1st win next Wednesday against the Parkland Bandits.
