CORNER BROOK Pat Fewer kicked two rouges and quarterback Bill Avery threw a touchdown pass to Richard Thomson to lift the Winmar Raiders to an 8-6 win over the Pasadena Pirates to extend the unbeaten streak on the gridiron.
Pirates quarterback Greg Whalen connected with Steve Kelly for a TD pass and threw two interceptions in the close Corner Brook Coors Light Touch Football League contest Sunday at Wellington Street Sports Complex.
Steve Cave and Colin Lynch were on the receiving end of Whelanâ€™s picks and Steve Vardy sacked Whalen twice in one of three games played on the gridiron on a cool morning.
The Pirates made it interesting late, marching down the field with a shot for the win on the final play, but a dropped pass in the endzone kept the Raiders unbeaten on the season with eight wins in a row.
The following is a look at how things unfolded in other league games Sunday:
Marine Lounge 9, Western College Jets 2
The early scoring in this contest saw the Marine Lounge squad â€” with its first win in eight outings â€” put up two points as Paul Prosper recorded a sack and a safey on Jets QB Steve Perry.
From there, a defensive battle ensued with both teams finding their hands on three interceptions.
Steve Huxter had two interceptions for the victors, while Greg Keats had a couple for the Jets.
Prosper added a rouge for the winners and Keats added two rouges for the Jets making it a 3-2 game for Marine until just under 10 minutes left in the game when Marine QB Adam Anderson found Sara Squires in the endzone for the gameâ€™s lone touchdown.
Golden Gophers 20, Falcons 6
Quarterback Steve Hynes threw three touchdown pases â€” with Peter MacDonald, Adam Joyce and Fred Prosper content recipients â€” to lead the charge for the winners.
Falcons QB Dave Power didnâ€™t throw a touchdown pass in the game, but still managed to find himself on the scoresheet by intercepting an errant pass from Hynes and returning it for a score.
Power threw two interceptions of his own with Dean Barker picking him on both occasions.
