Hurricanes Fall Short 2nd Straight Year

The Hurricanes lost to the Connecticut Mustangs for a second straight year.  This year plagued by turnovers on a 18-3 loss.

They Mustangs opened the game with a touchdown, on the ensuing kickoff, the Hurricanes had their first of 7 turnovers and fumbled.  The Mustangs capitalized and made it 12-0 before the Canes Offense touched the field.  The Canes moved the ball, but couldn’t punch it in the end zone. They had to settle for their only points by Kicker Shane Carley in the 2nd quarter.  Right before halftime the Hurricanes had a chance to make it a 1 possession game but another turnover at the mustangs 10 yard line prevented it.

Starting with the ball the second half, the Canes couldn’t overcome their sloppiness and turned the ball over 3 more times.  One leading to another Mustangs TD to round out the scoring.

The Hurricanes overall had a great year.  For the second straight season they won the North Division Championship, they improved on their win total from 6 to 8 and are trending in the right direction.

They Canes did it with most of the same faces, but a few new faces really got the team to excel.  Leading Rusher, Chris McNally was one of the biggest additions.  With him and Tyrone Holley running the ball, it made for a 1-2 punch that was best in the league.

The defense once again was amazing.  Lead by LB’s Joe Amaral Jr and Jocko Devoe, they controlled the middle of the field while Defensive Ends Tyler Gomes and Pat Zadrozny maintained the edges and both had All Star years.

New additions to the defensive backfield, Tyler Ruggiero and Larry Tagger, really solidified their defense this year.

The Canes are looking to continue to build off their success this season and get some more quality recruits that could get them over the hump.
