Sardis Falcons football is excited to welcome TELUS to our family. They have generously agreed to team up with us and come aboard as our major corporate sponsor.
Don't let the score fool you as this was a wild and tight game to the end. The Falcons started off on fire coming out 13-0 after their first 2 drives. The Bears fought back and tied it at 13-13. The Falcons mounted a 96 yard drive to score before the half, only to have it called back leaving the game tied. Both teams scored in the 3rd making the game 19-19 going into the 4th. The Flacons looked to have made a huge stop on 4th down only to be call back on a very questionable PI call changing the game big time. With the score 25-19 Bears with 4 minutes left Sarids was driving for the winning TD only to have some big mistakes cost them leading to the Bears scoring again with 16 seconds left. #2 Brayden our grade 10 Running back in his first game of the year ran the ball for 136 yards on only 15 carries. While on D grade 10 Aidan Saunders lead the team in tackles once again.

With the victory on November 3rd the Falcons season came to a conclusion. That victory over Eric Hambe was a big one as it brought the Falcons record back to .500 at 4-4. This is a major accomplishment for a first year program in any tier. Even all the more sweeter as it was in AAA.
