The Hurricanes were able to put together another complete game to earn their fourth consecutive win of the 2012 Ontario Football Conference season with a convincing 47-8 victory over the visiting Windsor AKO Fratmen.
The Saturday (Sept.8) match-up was a highly anticipated one. Windsor was looking to exact a little revenge for the loss that the club incurred in last season’s OFC title game. The final score of this past weekend’s game was close to the outcome of that provincial championship game – 42-6 for Hamilton.
Quarterback Kyle Johnston had another stand out performance on Saturday. He threw for 290 yards and five touchdowns on just nine completions with only one small blemish – a single interception.
His favourite receivers were Anthony Pizzuti (four catches for 51 yards and two touchdowns) and Daniel Parr (two catches for 106 yards and a touchdown).
The offence was able to score at will and Johnston connected with his talented group of receivers with three strikes of 62 yards or more to help move the Hurricanes down field.
‘Canes Ryan Dalley held the spotlight on defence with one solo tackle and four interceptions which he ran back for a total of 62 yards, one of which he converted into a touchdown.
Dalley was the key to shutting down the AKO offensive attack by not allowing anything to get past him in the secondary.
Hamilton takes its 4-1 record on the road this weekend, visiting the 3-2 St. Leonard Cougars on Saturday. The Hurricanes and London Beefeaters share first place.
