NCAFA Minor Football
Bantam Panthers win battle of the unbeateans

The Cumberland Panthers are the number one bantam team in the National Capital Amateur Football Association after downing the Kanata Knights at Millennium Park last Friday night.

The Panthers opened the scoring in the first quarter with a 21-yard run by Dante Spadaccini.

They would open up some daylight over the opponents with a pair of majors in the second stanza. Quarterback Christian Veilleux scored on an 11 yard bootleg to make the score 14-7 and then he hooked up with receiver Zane Teichroeb on a five-yard touchdown pass to give them a 21-7 lead at the half.

Veilleux ran for another TD in the third and Maraedyn Nelson added a pair of field goals to go along with his four successful PAT attempts.

The Panthers’ defence did an outstand-ing job in limiting the Knights – a team that had scored 132 points in three games heading into their showdown – to just two touchdowns.

Veilleux was 13-for-23 through the air for 217 yards and one touchdown. He also ran for 46 yards on eight carries, two of which were for majors.

Spadaccini ran for 70 yards on nine carries and a touchdown, and Jeremy Hartle carried the ball four times for 31 yards.

Veilleux’s favourite receiver was Markaedyn Nelson who caught the ball five times for 120 yards, while Teichroeb had three receptions for 47 yards including a second quarter TD. Ethan Wilson, Yannick Belair and Hartle were also on the receiving end of Veilleux’s passes.

The leading tackler on defence was Schneider Jean-Baptiste who had four solo tackles and three assists. The defence also forced an interception and a fumble.

The win improves the Panthers record to 5-0 with a date against the 6-0 Bell Warriors this weekend. A win over the west end team would assure the Panthers homefield advantage throughout the playoffs. Many NCAFA observers are predicting the Panthers will cruise to the league championship.

Many of the players, including the Veillieux, Spadacinni, Teichroeb, and Justice Koradi have been on champiosnhip teams in the past. Koradi was on the Panthers Junior Varsity team that won the Ontario Provincial Football League championship in August.
