Varsity Tomahawks 28 – Titans 0

The varsity Tomahawks (4-0) had their best offensive showing of the season defeating the Fareast Titans 28-0. The victory is the fourth consecutive shutout by the Tomahawks.

After a scoreless first quarter, the Tomahawks hit pay dirt with a balanced attack that kept the Titan defense on its heels. The drive was sparked by a 13-yard run after the Tomahawks were backed up by a penalty. Later in the drive, the Tomahawks completed a 14-yard pass converting on third and 11. The Tomahawks finished the drive with a 25-yard touchdown pass, putting them up 6-0 with 5 minutes left in the half.

The Tomahawks regained possession late in the half and launched an aerial assault completing passes of 12, 14 and 10 yards. With 20 seconds remaining, the Tomahawks called a reverse, scoring on a nifty 25-yard run by the wide receiver to give them a 14-0 halftime lead.

The Titans tried to get something going on the ground, but failed to gain significant yardage against the stifling Tomahawk defense. Faced with fourth and 7, the Titans decided to try their luck in the air, but the Tomahawks sacked the quarterback for a 10-yard loss taking over on downs at the Titan 25. The Tomahawks needed only two plays to score, completing a 24-yard pass to the tight end that gave the Tomahawks a 22-0 lead.

On their next possession the Titans were once again unable to convert on fourth and long. Taking over at the Titan 45, the Tomahawks switched to a single wing formation and moved the ball easily down the field with runs of 13, 4, 7, and 16 yards. The drive was capped with a 9-yard touchdown run with 4 minutes left.
