The TNT Express hosted three games at Mel Mitchell Athletic Fields in Beeton on Sunday, July 8.

It was a tough day for the Express when they came up short in all three games.

The Express teams, however, did give a solid effort on the field and turned out good performances in all three matches.

 

Bantam

 

The Express Bantam team start off the day with 10:00 a.m. kick-off against the Woodstock Wolverines.

TNT put up a solid defensive wall in the first half of the game shutting down the Woodstock attempt to get down field and most of the half was played at mid-field.

The half ended with no score.

Woodstock was first on the scoreboard with a TD early in the third quarter but the Express stopped the convert attempt for the extra point.

After giving up a second TD the Express had success moving down field.

A long pass from Colton Blanchard to receiver Hunter Thom placed the Express in good field position.

With a play on the one-yard line, TNT’s Sandro Bonsi went through the middle to score, the followed up with a two-point convert.

The Wolverines scored the final goal of the day with less than a minute remaining on the clock to win the game 18-8.

 

Junior Varsity

 

The Express Junior Varsity team hosted the Clarington Knights in the second game of the day.

The JV squad has several injuries and were playing with a pretty tight bench for the game.

At the end of the day, the Express had to settle for a 35-0 loss to the Knights.

The Express will be back at Mel Mitchell this Sunday, July 15, for their final regular season game against the Vaughan Rebels.

The kick-off is slated for 12:00 noon.

 

Varsity

 

The Express Varsity team hosted the North Bay Bull Dogs in the final game of the day.

TNT played a good game but were edged out by the Bull Dogs and had to settle for a 51-20 loss for the day.

The Varsity squad has two more games on the regular season schedule.

They will return to Mel Mitchell this Sunday, July 15, to host the Orangeville Outlaws.

Game time is 2:30 p.m.
