The Cumberland Panthers Junior Varsity team picked up their first win of the season on Saturday, downing the Durham Dolphins 27-21 in Durham.

Panthers’ quarterback Ryan Licandro threw a pair of touchdown passes to Kyle Markell and Scott Fulton, while running back Marvin Simba scored one on the ground as the offence compiled 271 yards against the hometown Dolphins.

The scoring was rounded out by kicker Xavier Gervais who was a perfect three for three on extra point attempts, kicked a field goal and added a rouge.

The Dolphins’ offence also gave up a safety to round out the scoring.

Licandro completed 11 of 18 passes for 113 yards and two touchdowns. He also ran the ball five time for another 18 yards.

Simba ended the game with 104 yards on 21 carries.

On the defensive side of the ball, Oliver Tetreault led the way with four solo tackles and recovered a fumble. Nolan Meinzinger had two solo tackles and an interception, and Chris Bitchoka had two solo tackles and a fumble recovery.

The win is first of the season for the Panthers who lost their first two games to the Cambridge Lions and the Burlington Stampeders.

In other action on the weekend, the Panthers' Varsity team dropped a 31-7 decision to their Durham counterparts, while the Bantam team was shutout 51-0.

All three Panther teams sport identical 1-2 records, but it is still early in the season with five games remaining on the schedule.

This is unfamiliar territory for the Junior Varsity Panthers which last year made it to the Ontario Varsity Football League semi-finals. This year the Cumberland Panthers Football Club decided to make the jump to the OPFL, along with seven other former OVFL teams, in search of better competition.
