Nighthawks Win SCAA Senior Final
Hache scores 3 TDs for OSS who will face Joan of Arc in the GBSSA final.
The Orillia Nighthawks senior football team clawed their way to the Georgian Bay final.
Jack Hache ran for 3 touchdowns and converted 3 of 4 extra point attempts as the Nighthawks defeated the Bear Creek Kodiaks 27-24 in the SCAA final on Saturday.
All of the scoring came in the second half of the game.
OSS did have opportunities to score in the first half only to turn the ball over inside the 10-yard line of Bear Creek on two different occasions.
The Kodiaks opened the scoring with a 22-yard field goal early in the 3rd quarter for a 3-0 lead.
With the Nighthawks up 14-10 in the 4th quarter, Orillia managed to stop a Bear Creek drive inside their own 5-yard line.
On the ensuing possession, the Nighthawks broke the game open on a 104-yard touchdown run by Hache to go up 21-10.
Riley Blake had a pair of touchdown runs for the Kodiaks.
The Nighthawks will face the St. Joan of Arc Knights in the GBSSA final next Saturday at the West Orillia Sports Complex.
