Antwerp Argonauts U19 season is over
On a sunny but cold Sunday, the U19 faced the Liege Monarchs. The Monarchs quickly put 28 points on the board by throwing the ball efficiently. The running game was shut down pretty good. Once the Argonauts stopped shooting themselves in the foot offensively the running game started working. Cian Olieslagers put the first touchdown on the board with a long run. The PAT by Noah Kustermans was good.
After some good defensive work, the Argonauts forced the Monarchs back towards their own end zone. A QB sack by Idriss Ouazani and Yenthe De Backer put 2 extra points on the board. To close out the first half QB Coby Olieslagers hit Gianni Muyshondt with a deep touchdown pass with no time on the clock. Noah Kustermans was good on the PAT. Half time score 28-16 Monarchs.
The second half gave us a lot of defensive football with nice plays for both teams. Unfortunately, it didn’t give us any more points. The half time score proved to be the final score also.
The U19 will now enjoy a month of free time to let their injuries heal. The coaches wish all players going to the seniors best of luck. We know they will be a contribution to the squad. The others we will see again in January when we start building towards the next season.
