Defense Dominates Again

The undefeated Tors (3-0, 0-0) have successfully destroyed every team they faced because of their devastating defense and some last-second heroics by the Tor defensive backs. The defense dominated Houston Wheatley in spite of three turnovers by the Tor offense. Moses Alexander’s interception with less than a minute remaining in the game sealed the win for the Tors.

A.R. Warner hit Nehemiah Noel on a 66-yard touchdown strike to start the second quarter and the Tors grabbed a 7-0 lead. Wheatley’s Jason Watson ran the ball in from two yards out to make the score 7-6, the first time an opponent scored on the Tor defense this season. Wheatley scored again with a Watson to Mike Buchanan touchdown to give the Wildcats a 12-10 halftime lead.

The Tor defense had a bit of help from the Wildcats as Wheatley quarterback had two touchdowns called back by holding calls. The Wildcat offense couldn’t score the extra-points on their two touchdowns, and the special teams miscues on the extra points cost the Wildcats the game, as they lost 13-12.

Tor sophomore Joseph Cianfrini kicked field goals of 46 and 36 yards to earn MVP of the game as the Tors held on for the  13-12 win.

“We just have to keep working,” said Ball High coach Kimble Anders. “We just have to keep getting better. We’ll spend all next week on getting the kinks out.
