Jason Williams and the Toros defeat the Lycans 31-13.
Running back Jason Williams was the star of this show. He had 23 carries for a whopping 261 yards and three rushing touchdowns. The Lycan’s defense, who did a very good job of shutting running backs down all season, just did not have an answer for him. Rookie QB Cameron Curtis was efficient completing 15 of his 20 passes for 162 yards and one touchdown. The tough Fort Worth defense held the Lycans to just 265 total yards and 13 points. The Lycans appeared to head into Fort Worth with a new game plan. Their game plan was to prevent the interceptions that have been plaquing quarterback Sully Richardson over the last several games. The game plan did work in that respect; however, it also eliminated all the risky passes that went for big yardage in previous games. Like the saying goes, “No risk, no reward”, and they absolutely were not rewarded for this effort.
The Lycans end their season on a 2-game losing streak. The Toros will head over to Vancouver this week to face the 4th ranked Legion in the quarterfinals. Will Jason Williams be able to bulldoze the Legion’s defensive line, or will the Legion’s high-powered offense be too much for the Toro’s tough defense?
