Three of five Cornwall Wildcats minor football teams will be playing on championship weekend, contending for a NCAFA cup, as a result of semifinal action this weekend, including the tyke 2 squad which demolished the Cumberland Panthers 82-0 to qualify for the tyke division ‘A’ final.
In Saturday evening’s peewee ‘B’ semifinal, Cornwall prevailed 41-26 on the road over the West Carleton Wolverines to earn a berth in the ‘B’ cup final next weekend.
After the Wolverines opened the scoring, the ‘Cats responded on a Carter Camplin sneak. The teams continued to trade points, with a missed extra point the difference leaving Cornwall trailing at halftime.
Nick McAuley was called upon to carry the ball extensively in the third quarter, as the Wildcats took control of the game. In all, he scored five touchdowns in the game.
Zach Aubin accounted for the rest of the scoring, successfully booting five of six PATs.
A rainy Sunday morning started off playoff action in Cornwall, where the tyke 2 squad scored the aforementioned decisive triumph in their ‘A’ semifinal.
The tyke 1 ‘Cats played next at The Joe, losing 36-12 to the South Ottawa Mustangs. Their ‘A’ semifinal defeat brings the 2019 season to an end for the team.
