The Wolfpack varsity boys’ football team travelled to the Dragons Den at Castlebrooke Secondary School in Brampton Oct. 15.
The boys had a bump in the road, with only half the team showing up for the beginning of the game due to transportation issues. With horrible field conditions and the lack of organization, the boys went into half time down 3-0. Then the Wolfpack buckled down and played as a team, scoring one touchdown, one convert and two safeties. Jake Fetterly and Evan Kumer stood out on offence; pounding the ball which lead to a long drive down the field, and Kumer getting a much-needed touchdown. Quinn Wheeldon and Jordan Baggio shut down the Dragons on defence, even when Castlebrooke had the bal,l first and goal, from the three yard line.
Kumer earned player of the game honours for the second time in a row. Congrats to the boy’s on their hard earned 10-5 victory. We look forward to watching Hall’s home game against the Sandalwood Sabres.
Junior girls’ basketball suffered a tough loss, losing 51-11 to the Ambrozic Cardinals Oct. 15.
The Cardinals swooped in and took the Wolfpack by surprise. Great defensive efforts were lead by Victoria Lucas and the coaches report, “The fourth quarter was their best offensive quarter of the season.”
Points were scored by Alexis Viveiros, Lucas and top scorer, Ariel Neil. Lucas played a great game offensively and defensively, earning herself player of the game honours. The girls are slowly learning how to play with these competitive teams and coaches have high hopes for the girls in their next game.
Oct. 16, the varsity girls’ flag football team took on Holy Name of Mary and unfortunately, they did not have the same outcome as the previous week. The girls loss 20-12 and battled their hearts out against a tough offence.
“The girls have the skills to make it to the next level and need two more wins to fight for their playoff spot,” Coach Slokar reports.
The coaches are proud of the girls for moving from tier 2 to tier 1 football, and now are pushing them to strive to make the playoffs. Lindsey Smith kept the team in the game by scoring two touchdowns with the help of her team mates and Alexandra Young earned player of the game honours. She was reported to be “stellar” and fast on defence. The girls’ next game is at home verses North Park, where we expect the girls to play the best football they can in order to move onto the playoffs.
To end the week off on a positive note, the varsity girls’ field hockey team had their last game of the season.
The girls ended with a bang against the St. Michael Thunder and won 2-1; their first win of the season. Calista Iannotta started of the scoring and Megan Campbell followed suit later on in the game. Coach Di Venosa wanted a special shout out to Abigail LaPalme and Kathryn Macrae for making great plays during the game and helping the Wolfpack earn their first victory of the season. Coach D would also like to thank the girls for such an amazing season and is very proud on how quickly they learned the game and represented the Wolfpack well. Congratulations to Shona Scott for earning player of the game honours and being a great leader for the girls throughout the year. We look forward to seeing the squad back out again next year.
