Roberts scores TD in Lancers win

CJ Roberts rushed for touchdowns of eight and 37 yards in the second half of the Ursuline Lancers’ 18-1 semifinal victory over the Northern Vikings in LKSSAA junior football Thursday in Sarnia.

Alex Amores Carlone ran 11 times for 108 yards, Roberts gained 101 yards on six carries and Sawyer Emmott kicked an 18-yard field goal, two extra points and a red.

Jayden Baylis and Jude Sherbourne each had seven tackles for the Lancers and Roberts had four.

The teams were tied 1-1 at halftime.

“This was our most complete game,” Lancers head coach Adam McCabe said. “We controlled the ball well in attack and the defense punished. Special teams had a big comeback that woke us up and the final field goal was big. We come together at the right time.”
