Windsor's Avalanche football team struggling offensively

WINDSOR — The Avon View Avalanche football team has struggled to put points on the board at times this season, but it still managed a 2-2 record going into the Thanksgiving Day home game against Northeast Kings.

However, the team succumbed 13-0 in the holiday fixture, only to turn around and be hammered 46-0 by West Kings Sunday afternoon in Kingston.  

In the Thanksgiving Day game, it was a defensive battle with both clubs having trouble shaking the cobwebs before the Avon View defence coughed up the ball and allowed two scoring plays by the visiting team. 

The only bright spots for the Avalanche were on defence, where Luke Jillett and Ryan Harvey both had eight tackles, and Darion Amos had a sac and seven tackles.

The game against West Kings on Oct. 19 was a little strange given that the Avalanche defeated the Wolverines a couple of weeks ago 6-3. This time, though, West Kings came with a vengeance, taking full advantage of Avon View playing shorthanded due to injuries and some prior commitments.

Justin Crossley had more than 100 all-purpose yards in the losing effort, while quarterback Austin Sabean was five for seven for 40 yards. He also caught an interception and made five tackles when playing on the defensive side.

Dr. J.H. Gillis from Antigonish will be in town Oct. 26 for a 1 p.m. start at Avon View.
