#1-Seed Timbó Rex Shut Out White Sharks Istepos (WSI)

TIMBO, BRAZIL – The Timbó Rex win and advance out of the CBFA Superliga first round on Sunday. The Rex topped the visiting White Sharks Istepos from Florianópolis, Brazil.

Starting wideout, Ivan Tonolli, stepped in admirably as the third string quarterback to guide Timbo to a first round win, avenging their only loss of the regular season to a White Shark Istepos team that fought hard and played an excellent defensive game.

Speedy running back, Well Garcia scored the only offensive touchdown of the entire game.

Keith Smith II returned a punt for a touchdown for Timbo’s other score.

Veteran linebacker, Laercio Ancelleto, had a key interception and 40 yard return.

Timbo now gets a few weeks for quarterback, Luis Bassani, to heal from a collar bone injury. However, the coaching staff is mum on who will be taking the snaps in their rematch against the Coritiba Crocodiles.

Timbo will square off against the Coritiba Crocodiles at home on November 13 at 3p local time at Complexo Esportivo Timbo.
