Titans back home after adversities on road

The Chateauguay Titans return home from a two-game road trip tonight for a 7:30 p.m. Empire Football League clash with St. Lawrence Valley Trailblazers at Billings. The Titans are a work in progress, it seems. After shading Ottawa Deacon Demons 10-7 on Andrew Blevings' last-second field goal in their season opener, the Titans ran into a stone wall, bowing 14-0 to Broome County Dragons and 29-21 to Vermont Storm.

"We just couldn't move the ball," head coach John Mouland lamented of the shutout loss in Broome County. "Andrew (Blevings) had a touchdown called back on a so-so decision. Other than that, our offence was disappointing. Our receivers are not catching the ball. Because of that, our defence is forced to be on the field 60% of the time"

Kevin Wyeth has returned to the fold and is sharing the quarterbacking duties with Zan Symonds, who has not yet seemed to adjust to the nuances of semi-pro ball. "Don't forget, Zan was off for a year and a half after leading the (Junior) Raiders to the Manson Cup. Then he got speared in the ribs against Ottawa," Mouland reminded.

"It takes time to click, but I'm optimistic," Mouland declared. "If we can put it all together, we'll have a scary team."

Wyeth threw a pair of second-half TD passes in Vermont after relieving Symonds but Mouland admitted being "very disappointed" with the club's overall effort. Marvin Joseph was on the receiving end both times. Symonds then returned to toss a scoring strike to Steve Crompton.

Former Midget Raiders running back (vintage 1996) Jomy Enakereru made his Titans debut against the Dragons and was a bright spot, along with Blevings.
