NCAFA Championship week is always an exciting time of the year with the largest amateur football association showcasing the best-of-the best 8 through 18 year olds from Eastern Ontario and now Western Quebec. Our Bantam team were hindered with some untimely injuries. They battled hard in their B-Cup semi losing in a very tight finish to the Gloucester South Raiders 14.12. Our very young inexperienced Pee Wee team continued to gel and improve as the season went on. They saw themselves earn a spot vs the Gatineau Vikings in the C-Cup Championship losing in the final minute 26-22 in a heart breaker. The Warriors Tykes 6v6 also saw themselves in their C-Cup Championship and in the last 30 seconds of the game, they gave up an untimely TD to the South Ottawa Mustangs which gave the Mustangs a 38-34 win.
Our Mosquito team ended up playing on A-Cup Sunday vs the #1 ranked Bel-Air Lions. They had faced the Lions twice during the regular season and lost both games. On that chilly Sunday morning however, our relentless Warriors Mosquitos were not to be denied. This was an inaugural 9v9 format this year which will continue going forward on the basis of this year’s successful launch. The Lions played our Warriors tough but in the end, it was not enough and our Warriors were lifting the A-Cup Championship trophy!!!
