Portage Pitbulls take on the LaSalle Lightning

Mike Paddigen

By Mike Paddigen

It was a seasonal cool 3 degrees at Republic of Manitobah Park on Saturday October 5th, and Portage's very own Atom Division Pitbulls welcomed the LaSalle Lightning to their home turf. While the Lightning came looking for a win, the Pitbulls defence consistently showed what they were made of and pushed the Lightning back over and over again thru each quarter. Equally impressive was the Pitbulls' offensive line that delivered several touchdowns to deliver a team victory of 54-24 over the Lightning. Playoff fever was in the air that morning as football fans on both sides of the field passionately cheered their teams on! Coaches Irwin, Banfield and Stasiuk and all of the players deserve a resounding applause for all of their hard work, commitment and effort as they advance next week in another playoff game showdown!
