After an initial score by Leeds Beckett, the Sabres fought their way into the end zone with Full Back Bob Brownlees’ first rushing touchdown of the season. Another Leeds touchdown brought the score to 16-8 at half time with the sabres offence unable to convert before the break.
The second half saw both teams trade scores with make-shift Quarterback Bruno Schatten completing his first ever touchdown pass and Bob Brownlees second rushing score. Despite offensive scores, defensive weakness against the Leeds Beckett run game allowed them to extend their lead beyond reach with the final score reaching 40-22 in Beckett’s favour.
