NORWICH – The Norwich Cyclone “A” team stopped 2007 Tri-Valley League and New York State champion Vernon-Verona-Sherrill at Alumni Field Sunday, winning 12-0 and ending the Red Devils’ 26-game winning streak.
The game was a defensive stalemate until Kyle Edwards scored from eight yards out with 9:09 remaining in the fourth quarter.
The Cyclones took to the air late in the third quarter with three straight completions from quarterback Michael Sutton – a 25-yard gem to Edwards, and 13- and 12-yard tosses to Michael Oralls, who reached the three-yard line.
Storm Cook recovered a V-V-S fumble after the ensuing kickoff at the Red Devils’ 25. The Cyclones lost the ball on a third-and-four from the 19. V-V-S then mounted a furious drive to the Cyclones’ 10 with 1:09 remaining. Jaden MacRabie then picked up a Red Devils fumble and raced 90 yards to the south endzone sealing the win.
