Atoms beat the Nomads A team 69-7. The offense seems to have sorted out the issues it had the week previous against the Mustangs with several touchdowns by running backs Ishamani Lewin and Cian Campbell. Quarterback Steven Schanel not only threw for two touchdowns to Brayden Kaprusek but he also ran several times for first downs, a touchdown and successful converts.
The offense has improved dramatically with solid blocking from the offensive line while the defense was again solid only giving up a touchdown on a broken play. There was also an interception return for a touchdown by Jacob Burym and a strip that resulted in a long run into Nomads territory by Nick Gofman. Special teams were again solid, with Hugh Montgomery recovering a kickoff and returning a kickoff for a long touchdown.
The Atom boys now have a bye week before playing the Eastman Raiders in Steinbach on the 21st.
