HWMFA teams experience victories & defeats

The past weekend saw some great Central Ontario Minor Football league action being played at HWMFA’s own dedicated football complex, MacRae Fields.  For the Hamilton Wentworth Tiger-Cats, 6 of the 7 teams had games at their home park on Saturday Sept 08.

The first game saw the two Hamilton Wentworth Tyke teams face off on the Upper field, with the Tyke2 team pulling off the victory over the Tyke1 team with a score of 39 to 19.  Scoring points in this game were:

Tyke 2
#81- Nolan Clark: 2 TD
#21- Jordan Landry: 3 TD
#85- Eric Emond: 1 TD
#50- Erik McLaren-Bunch: 3 Converts

Tyke 1
#23- Ben Baksys: 1 TD
#33- Deniro Reis-Kerr: 1 TD
#18- Kymani Grant: 1 TD
#52- Damon Clark: 1 convert

Following the Tyke game, the HWMFA Tiger-Cats Peewee AA team hosted the Clarington Tigercats, with the visitors claiming a 24-0 victory.

The three AAA teams played their games on the Lower Field at MacRae.  All guest for all three games were the Toronto Grizzlies.  The first game saw the Atom team score early and often on way to a dominant 41-18 victory.  Coach Joe Sardo was pleased with the execution of his team, especially with the kids focus on implementing the plays they had worked on during the previous weeks practice.

The next game saw the Peewee team face a strong Toronto team.  Unfortunately, the Toronto team scored on their first possession as they returned a punt for a TD.  The Hamilton defense held strong throughout the game, but the offense could not get things clicking, and the end result was a 20-0 loss.

The last game of the day pitted the two Bantam teams.  The start of the game saw a couple of mistakes by Toronto, and a strong drive to the goal line by Hamilton. Unfortunately, the Toronto defense made a goal line stand and Hamilton fumbled the ball on 4th down on the 1 yard line.  From that point on, the Toronto was able to take control and won the game with a final score of 27-6.

The only team to have an away game was the Atom AA Tiger-Cats, as they travelled north to visit the Vaughan Rebels.  The Atom AA team is a young team with many first year players and although they played strong, they were defeated by a strong Rebels team 26-6.  Much like the Atom AAA team, the coaching staff was pleased to see how the kids are taking the fundamentals they are using in practice, and applying them to game situations.

Advocating for football prospects one story at a time.
