The Cornwall tyke 1 Wildcats earned a 48-6 victory over the Bell Warriors, on a chilly Sunday morning at Joe St Denis Field. As occasional snow flurries fell during the Oct. 21 gridiron grudge match, the Wildcats dominated on both sides of the ball.
Glengarrian Connor Hamelin had 9 rushes for 187 yards, scoring 4 touchdowns. On defence, he had 5 solo tackles and 7 assisted tackles. Elliot Keenan recorded 6 rushes for 40 yards, 3 solo tackles, and 7 assisted tackles, while Andrew Wiltshire had one tackle.
The other Cornwall scoring came from Caleb Denney (1 TD) and Bryce Camplin (3 two-point convert kicks).

The tyke 2 team won its match against the Bell Warriors 46-24, and the mosquito Wildcats scored a 46-0 shut-out triumph.
