Panthers maintain their winning ways
By Fred Sherwin
Oct. 3, 2019

The Cumberland Panthers Football Club had another successful weekend on the gridiron, winning all four of their games including a 35-14 win by the bantam team over the previously undefeated Cornwall Wildcats on Sunday.

In what was billed as the marquee match-up of the day, the Panthers offence proved to be too much for the visitors due in large part to the efforts of their running back/safety Khalid Campbell, who rushed for more than 150 yards, scored his team’s opening touchdown and made a game-clinching interception in the dying seconds of the fourth quarter.

Quarterback Nate Beauvais also had a big day, throwing for a pair of touchdowns passes to Cordel Epale and Logan Olsthoorn and adding one on the ground.

On defense, Jake Henderson made three outstanding open field tackles, added a highlight reel interception and was 4-for-4 in the convert department.

The final score was 28-21 in favour of the Panthers who improved their record to 5-1 and have moved into sole possession of first place thanks to wins over the Bell Warriors and Myers Riders who are also 5-1.

In earlier action on Sunday, the Panthers’ Tyke 1 team posted an impressive 74-28 win over the Wildcats Tyke 1 squad to improve their record to 5-1. Running back Elisha Mufuta scored four touchdowns; Jaxson Wilson, Gabriel Gauthier, Nicholas Charlebois and Jacob Pranschke each added a pair of majors and Trenton Murdock scored a solo touchdown and added a two-point conversion.

The Panthers Mosquito team also improved their record to 5-1 with a 33-0 win over the Orléans Bengals. On Saturday, the Panthers Tyke #2 team beat the West Carleton Wolverines 72-24 to keep pace with the Tyke # 1 squad and the peewee team downed West Carleton 50-0 to improve their record to... you guessed it – 5-1.
