HORNS DOWN... NELSON DOMINATES IN BIG WIN

2019 GHAC SEMI-FINAL

NELSON LORDS - 36

CORPUS CHRISTI LONGHORNS - 8

The weather circumstances surrounding this game with heavy snowfall two days prior were already interesting and as the snow fell during the game at Nelson Stadium the setting was incredible under the lights. Nelson took advantage of a big home crowd and jumped out to a 16-0 halftime lead. First half touchdowns went to Luca Rosiello and Jackson Somerville with the defence adding a safety and a two point conversion catch from Jackson Cooling. Nelson appeared to put the game away early in the 3rd with touchdowns from Rosiello and Cooling before the Longhorns would get on the scoreboard. A big return and penalty aided touchdown drive put Corpus back into the game before the Lords defence shut the door and Luca Rosiello added his third rushing touchdown of the night to seal the victory. The win sends Nelson to the GHAC Championship game at St. Thomas More for a re-match with the Knights.

JR LORDS GET SHUTOUT BY RAVENS TO END SEASON

2019 JUNIOR METROBOWL PLAYOFFS

ST. ROCH RAVENS - 25

NELSON LORDS - 0

The JR Lords season came to an end on a snowy and muddy field at St. Roch on Tuesday. Nelson just could not find the endzone and a fumble on the 1 yard line with a chance to take a lead at the half proved too much to over come. The Ravens would pull away in the second half and put the game out of reach. The Lords will see the remaining players from the 2018 MetroBowl team move up to the Senior ranks having won back-to-back Halton titles and keeping the streak alive as the team looks for its 7th title in 2020.
