By thesecond quarter the offensive teams started to come alive each scoring a touch down and convert, leaving it 8-8. The teams get two points per convert to encourage kicking in the league.

The 2nd half was all Lions with the final score landing at 28-16 in Sylvan’s favour. The offensive line was very strong with some incredible blocking allowing players to get touch downs across the line. There were a total of 362rushing yards, 56 passing yards, two quarterback sacks for a total of 20 yards, four touch downs and two converts. Over all coach Vic Sloboda was very proud of his team who came out very strong for the first game of the seasonand put in such a great effort. Vic would also like to thank all the friends and family that came out to cheer on the team.
