Bantam Panthers one win away from NCAFA championship

The Cumberland Panthers bantam team has a date with destiny on Wednesday, Jan. 23 . A date they hope will result in a city championship and the fulfillment of what has so far been a perfect season.

The Panthers won their 10th game in a row on Oct. 28, downing the Cornwall Redblacks 42-14 in the National Capital Amateur Football Association (NCAFA) semi-finals to earn a berth in this Sunday's final.

The victorious Panthers were once again led by their quarterback, Christian Veilleux who threw for 198 yards and three touchdowns before making way for backup Zach Clouthier in the fourth quarter.

Two of Veilleux's touchdown passes were caught by Markaedyn Nelson while the third was hauled in by Evan Scazighino. Nelson also scored a touchdown on the ground, as did Brendon Shaw and Dante Spadaccini who ended the game with 114 yards on 14 carries.

On the defensive side of the ball, Nathan Marley was making tackles all over the field, finishing the game with seven solo tackles and five assists.

Ezekiah Zamor has also had a big game on defense, racking up four solo tackles and six assists, and middle linebacker Justice Koradi had five solo tackles and a sack.

When they take to the field with the rest of the team in Sunday's final against the Kanata Knights, Koradi and Nelson will be gunning for their fifth A-Cup championship. They were part of the Panthers tyke team that won the Cup in 2011 and 2012, and they were also on the mosquito championship team in 2013 and the peewee team in 2015.

Sunday's championship final will be played at Millennium Park on Trim Road. Kick-off is at 6 p.m.
