The Tri-City Outlaws defeated the visiting Sudbury Spartans by a score of 20 – 7 in NFC quarter-final action Saturday night. With this win the Outlaws advance to a semi-final matchup next Saturday in Sault Ste Marie against the hometown Steelers.
The Outlaws had to come from behind as the Spartans started the game with a strong first-quarter and took a 7 point lead into the second. The Outlaws’ running game kicked in at that point with the offensive line opening nice holes for Dan Seymour (25 carries, 173 yards) and Jermaine DeCosta (7 carries, 77 yards). Cambridge Minor grad Devin McMullin had a strong game on defense making 4 tackles including 1 for a loss. John Boonstra, Osmon Sokolovic, and Deryl Kelly made interceptions.
Shawn Ashe was a key performer on both sides of the ball making 3 receptions for 66 yards including 2 touchdowns and making 3 tackles on defense; helping his long-time coach and friend Head Coach Chris Newsome win the final home game of his 7 year Outlaws coaching career.
