The Peterborough Wolverines had a great day on Saturday when they hosted the Huronia Stallions at the TAS Field. All three teams were victorious and continue to work towards being the top seed in their respective division as they go into the play offs. They were also able to retain the “Cottage Cup” , the annual trophy that is contested between the Wolverines and Stallions. This is the second accomplishment for the Wolverines in the two years the of the challenge.

The Bantams started the day with a convincing 49-6 win, followed by the Jr. Varsity’s 44-17 win and the day was capped by the Sr. Varsity’s 24-9 victory. The Bantams played their best game of the year and defeated a good Huronia team. Both the Offense and especially the Defense played extremely well enabling the Wolverines to get off to a fast start and build an early lead and never looked back in securing their great victory. Scoring for the Wolverines were Carson Harvey with 4 TD’s, Jamie Hubble with 2 TD’s and Brett Bjorgan with a single TD. Hayden Mcllmoyle was successful on 7 convert kicks.

The Jr. Varsity Wolverines started strong and lead 30-10 at the half. They played well against another strong Stallions squad. The game was delayed in the fourth quarter when a strong thunder storm moved through the area. When play resumed, the Wolverines were able to come away with the victory. Scoring for the Wolverines were Blaine Stevenson with 2 TD’s and single TD’s by Raphael Rivera, Conner McGirl, Mac McFarlane and Alex Vassiliadis. Spencer Vesnaver was successful on 6 convert kicks.

The Sr. Varsity contest was truly a battle between two good football teams. The Stallions scored first on a team safety for a 2-0 lead. The Wolverines were able to briefly take the lead 3-2 on a Field Goal by Hayden Bruce, however the Stallions scored a TD and had the lead at half time 9-3. The Wolverines made adjustments at the half and their defense was outstanding in the second half holding the Stallions scoreless. The Wolverines were able to get their balanced offense of passing and rushing going and outscored the Stallions 21-0 in the second half to seal the tough fought 24-9 victory. Scoring for the Wolverines with single TD’s were Hayden Bruce, Ryan Astrom and Chase Batley. Hayden was also successful on two convert kicks and added a Field Goal. Nick Clarkin converted one convert kick as well.

All three teams will be at home this Saturday when they host a triple header at TAS Field. The Bantams will play the Forest City Thunderbirds from London in a 12 noon contest, followed by the JV’s in a rematch with Sudbury at 3 pm and closing out the day will be the SV’s squad hosting the Forest City Thunderbirds at 6 pm. It should be another great day of football.
