One thing has to give on Saturday afternoon in Cornwall, as a pair of winless OFC football teams are set to collide on the Joe St. Denis Field.

The Wildcats, which feature several boys from Glengarry county, are 0-4, while their scheduled opponents, the Peterborough Wolverines, are 0-5. With a win, one of these teams will climb out of the East Division basement.

This is the first season for the Wildcats playing in the OFC. Previously, they competed in the OVFL, which is now defunct.

The OFC varsity league provides provincewide football for teens aged 17 to 19.

Saturday's game is set for a 1 p.m. opening kickoff.
