CALUMET CITY | T.F. North had to shuffle some starters on offense Friday night, and the Meteors were unable to get the big play and finish when they needed it.

The Meteors fell 28-14 to South Suburban Blue foe, Bremen, Friday night. The Braves used 21 second half points to overcome the Meteors, and T.F. North was unable to capitalize on four Bremen fumbles that were all recovered by the Meteors. In replacement of starter Aaron Dunigan, T.F. North backup quarterback Davion Sylvester threw two touchdown passes in the loss.

"We played without some guys tonight," T.F. North head coach Artie Rogers said. "The next guy's got to step up. We just didn't finish the game. We were there, and our effort was great. We played hard, there's no doubt about it, we just can't make silly mistakes."

The Meteors offense opened the scoring and took the 7-0 first quarter lead when Sylvester found Darren Stern for a 4-yard touchdown throw with 38 seconds remaining in the first. Bremen was able to respond in the second quarter, and the two teams took a 7-7 tie into the half. The Meteors (2-1, 1-1) were able to hold Bremen to 77 yards of total offense in the first half.

"We had a good running game we just got tired up front," Sylvester said. "Mental mistakes is what killed us. It was a real good game, we just have to stay focused and be consistent."

In the second half, Sylvester found junior Raymond Powell for a brief 14-7 Meteor lead with 9:32 remaining in the third. Bremen then ran off 21 straight points in the second half to take the SSC Blue victory. Bremen was able to work the seam route for touchdown throws of 30 and 16 yards by Bremen QB Tyler Banovich.

"It was the same pattern and we just didn't react to it," Rogers said. "We don't know where we're at on the field. Those are just mental mistakes that we can't make."

The Meteor offense was unable to get going in the second half and were unable to connect in the passing game when they needed a big play.

"The second half we couldn't run the ball and they were jamming up in on us," Rogers said. "We just have to do a better job of finishing. We just don't do smart things some times."
