The Jr team came across a tough Georgetown team who ran the ball well and played a physical game. With Georgetown leading all of the game late into the 4th quarter a 4th and 15 pass caught by Jonah Schothuis brought the Huskies within one score 20-14. Shortly after Craig Sherrington ran for 40 yards to score a touchdown and the extra point sealed the win. With the win they finished 4th and will face Nelson on Thursday Nov 9th.
In the second game the Sr Huskies lost 21-3. The offense had their best outing of the year but was not able to capitalize inside the Georgetown's 5yrd line on two occasions. While the defense held the Rebels in check, a couple of long passes got behind the secondary for touchdowns. With the loss the Sr's finished 4th with a 3-3 record and will face the Nelson Lords on Thursday Nov 9th @ 2pm.
