Dragons beaten on late, long TD pass
Staff report • August 23, 2009
BINGHAMTON -- The Quebec Titans struck for a last-minute touchdown Saturday night to defeat the Broome County Dragons 28-24 in an Empire Football League game at Binghamton Alumni Stadium.
Trailing 21-7 at halftime, the Dragons opened the second half with 17 points but Quebec used a 42-yard touchdown pass with 54 seconds left to pull out the win and improve to 5-1.
"That's tough to swallow after four quarters of fighting," said Tom Manny, head coach of the Dragons, who fell to 3-3.
Quarterback Adam Good finished with 230 yards passing and one touchdown, as well=2 0as three interceptions, according to Dragons statistics. He hit Domonique Henderson with a 38-yard touchdown pass to put the Dragons on the board in the first half.
In the second half, tailback Joe Johnson helped lead the comeback, scoring twice. He finished with 66 yards on 16 carries.
Manny also credited the defense with turning things around after halftime, saying: "They got us back in the game -- getting turnovers, giving the offense field position."
Willie Everett had a fumble recovery and an interception, and Ahmeel Curtain finished with five assists and three solo tackles for the Dragons, who next play Saturday at home against Plattsburgh.

 Dragons fall to Titans

Adam Good is a Windsor grad, and now is the quarterback of the BC Dragons.

Tonight they're taking on the Quebec titans, and the Titans not confused at all with the small field, well compared to Canadian football standards.

In the 2nd, coach and QB Geoff Brown completes the throw to Thierry Fontin, who is not touched, and gets up to run some more. All together it's a 45-yard gain, and it would set up this.

The Brown and Fontin connection again, this time for six, it's 7-0 Quebec, but don't count out those Dragons.

They're looking to make it three wins in a row, and with plays like this they might be on their way. Good finds Bill Smith for 68-yards, not a TD, he fell at the two.

Two plays later, good nails Dominque Henderson with the fade, sweet grab.

The final is 28-24, Quebec wins.
