Cumberland tykes beat Kanata Knights in seesaw battle

By Fred Sherwin

The Cumberland Panthers and the Kanata Knights tyke teams put on a tremendous offensive display at Millennium Park on Sunday, exchanging touchdowns throughout most of the game.

By the end of the first half, the Panthers had a precarious 25-24 lead for no other reason than the fact that they managed to score with hardly any time left on the clock and the Knights didn’t have a chance to reciprocate before the halftime whistle blew.

The Panthers also managed to successfully convert the only extra point of the first half thanks to the kicking prowess of quarterback Shiloh Mukendy who scored all four of his team’s touchdowns in the opening two quarters, including a 56-yard effort in the dying seconds of the half to give his team the lead at the break.

The Panthers extended their advan-tage with another TD by Mukendy at the start of the second half The Knights immediately answered back with their fifth touchdown of the game to maintain a one-point deficit in spite of their inability to convert their uncontested extra point attempts.

The two teams exchanged TDs on the next two possessions, with Mukendy kicking his second extra point of the game to extend the Panthers’ lead to 38-30.

The touchdown parade continued in the fourth quarter with Mukendy adding two more majors to his final total of six on the day. But in the end the final result came down to kicking as the Knights had a chance to tie the game with a contested convert kick that counts for two points at the tyke level, but the ball never left the ground as the Panthers’ defense smothered the attempt.

The win improves the tyke team’s early season record to 2-0 after they opened their schedule with a 36-6 win over the North Gloucester Giants on Aug 27. The Panthers’ next two games are against the winless Nepean Eagles on Sept. 16, followed by a rematch against the Knights in Kanata on Sept. 23.
