Coquitlam Wildcats scratch and claw, but can't defeat South Delta

It was a tale of two halves when the Coquitlam Wildcats took on the South Delta Rams on Sunday in peewee football.

Coquitlam jumped out to a 6-0 lead and played two solid defensive quarters against the higher division team.

Nathan Massey was able to retrieve two important short kicks as he and Jordan Allaire did a good job of containing South Delta's receivers.

However, Coquitlam's defence started to show cracks early in the second half and South Delta was able to minimize the Wildcats' run game.

Eventually, the Rams were able to take the momentum and scored four unanswered touchdowns on their way to a 29-6 victory. Coquitlam will take on the Richmond Raiders next week as the Wildcats begin a three-game home stand.

TIGERS WIN

Tamani Duncan and Ziad Sabry each scored two touchdowns as they led the Coquitlam Tigers to a 28-0 win over the Westside Warriors in atom division football at Mackin Park on Sunday.

The Tigers controlled the game on the ground with several long drivers to move to 6-1 on the season. Quarterback Aiden Domino had a long run of 50 yards while Markus Rafnson kicked two converts.

On the defensive side of the ball, the Tigers did not give up much, pitching their second consecutive shutout. Rafnson and Sabry punished the Westside ball carriers with their physical play, while Alex Gagnon, Rafael Barret, Nathan Chalmers, Isaac Murray and Miller Renaud were solid on defence.
