Interlock-ex: Ottawa 18, Sherbrooke 16

SHERBROOKE, QUE. _ Matt Falvo kicked the winning 24-yard field goal with 2.9 seconds left Saturday afternoon for a drizzly 18-16 Gee-Gees football pre-season win at Sherbrooke.

The Gee-Gees erased a 16-15 deficit under overcast skies with intermittent rain and cool temperatures to win its lone pre-season match behind the second-year kicker, a native of Welland, Ont., who finished three-for three with field goals in the first (27), second (21) and fourth (24) quarters.

The Gee-Gees scored 12 points and its lone touchdown in the second quarter after Ottawa native rookie RB Brendan Gillanders converted a four-play, 27-yard drive with a five-yard scoring rush.

Third-year new Gee-Gees starting quarterback Brad Sinopoli was 2-8 for 18 yards over one quarter and two drives into the second quarter.

“It was good change-up from practising,” said Sinopoli. “It feels after just week in training camp like we’re a step ahead of where we should be.”

Rookie Gee-Gees defensive tackle Brent Washburn of Windsor recorded his first CIS sack in the first series of the third quarter,

“Great feeling,” said Washburn, 18.

The Gee-Gees resume two-a-day training camp practice Monday with on-field sessions at 10:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. at Matt Anthony Field.

uOttawa hosts defending OUA champion Western Ontario to open the 2009 regular season Sunday, September 6, 5:00 p.m. at Frank Clair Stadium.
