    Disappointing season for OVFL Wildcats ends with intra-squad game

    sean Jul 18, 2017 - 1:02pm

    Last Saturday, the Cornwall OVFL Wildcats were scheduled to host the Brampton Bulldogs to wrap up the season, but the 'Dogs forfeited, handing the 'Cats the victory to finish with a 2-6 record for eighth spot in the 10-team league.

    The Wildcats, which include county boys Cameron Howes and Rylan Duhart, scored 125 points in all, while allowing a league worst 243.

    The boys did get in some final action over the weekend, playing an intra-squad game. The score was 28-21 for Team AJ. Word has it that stellar officiating was provided by Kirby Camplin, Costa Zarifi, Mitch Zapitelli, and one of the player's dad. Glengarrians Alex Zarifi, Dylan Hambleton, and Alex Labonte were among the coaches.

    Howes had a strong game for the winning side, while Duhart was steady at centre for the losers.

    Sunday night racing curtailed by Mother Nature, again

    sean Jul 17, 2017 - 5:57pm

    A very busy evening was on tap for Sunday night at the Cornwall Motor Speedway, including a visit from the Patriot Sprint Tour, feature races in all division, and the fourth attempt at running the Cindy Ladouceur Memorial / Danny Lefebvre race, but once again Mother Nature interfered with plans. Just two races were completed before rains came.

    The Cindy Ladouceur Memorial / Danny Lefebvre race started the evening, as Tyler French took the early lead in front of Karl Potvin and Marc Dagenais. A good battle ensued for second between Potvin and Dagenais, as Dylan Kirkland brought out the caution on lap 13. On the restart, Dagenais powered by French for the lead, with Joe McNicholls in third. McNicholls battled towards the front, joining Dagenais, when Patrice Moniere rolled over in turn 2 and red came out with one lap remaining. McNicholls led the final lap and captured the win, his first of the season at the Cornwall track

    The 30-lap Patriot Sprint Tour saw Dylan Westbrook out in front early, with Steve Poirier in second and Mitch Brown in third. With 10 laps in, Westbrook found himself caught in the traffic. He continued to lead until lap 22, when Poirier made his move to pass, with Jared Zimbardi running in third. Poirier held the lead over the final laps to win the Patriot Tour feature, with Westbrook and Zimbardi completing the top three.

    The rain came in as preparations were underway for the Modified feature, forcing track operators to pull the plug for the rest of the evening. Remake dates will be determined in the coming days.

    For more racing news, please see this week's edition of The Glengarry News.

    Patriot Sprint Tour feature results (30 laps): Steve Poirier, Dylan Westbrook, Jared Zimbardi, Mitch Brown, Cory Turner, Jordan Poirier, Lee Ladouceur, Rick Wilson, April Wilson, Yan Bilodeau, Chris Jones, Paul Pekkonen, Guillaume Neiderer, Jake Brown, Ryan Turner.

    Cindy Ladouceur Memorial / Danny Lefebvre results (25 laps): Joe McNicholls, Tyler French, Marc Dagenais, Dylan Kirkland, Steve Morin, Alexis Charbonneau, Skylar Ladouceur, Mike Gaucher, Patrice Moniere, Francis Desjardins, Justin Jodoin, Karl Potvin, Corey Gates.
