The Orléans Bengals Football Club was hoping to celebrate Labour Day by notching a couple of wins on their home field, but in the end the best they could manage was a solitary victory by the peewee squad over the North Gloucester Giants.

Despite the best efforts of their running back Emmanuel Morin, the Bengals U9 Tyke squad failed to get on the scoreboard against the Knights who easily rolled to a 32-0 win.

The U13 Peewee team didn’t fare much better, losing 38-9 to their west end counterparts.

The U18 Midget team managed to put 19 points on the board against the West Ottawa Knights in the nightcap, but it still wasn’t enough as they ended up losing the game by 10 points.

The lone bright spot on what was an otherwise disappointing day came courtesy of the U11 Mosquito team which beat the North Gloucester Giants 32-13 for their first win of the season.

Cumberberland Panthers go 3-for-4

Unlike the Bengals, who have been struggling in the early part of the season, the Cumberland Panthers continued to roll along this season, racking up three wins and a rare tie on Monday.

The tie came in the tyke game between the Panthers and the East Nepean Eagles which ended in a 24-24 deadlock.

Meanwhile, the Panthers’ mosquito squad left no doubt who was the better team on the day as they completely overwhelmed their East Nepean counterparts 42-0.

The Panthers bantam team also had their way with their East Nepean oppon-ents using a balanced attack on offence and a stellar defence to win the game 48-0 and improve their record to 2-1.

Place kicker Jake Henderson was 2-for-2 in field goal attemps and a perfect 4-for-4 on PATs. Clark O'Connor scored two rushing TDs, Cordel Epale caught a pair of touchdown passes and Jefferson Bretanys-Desca and Noah White scored added a running touchdowm and passing TD each.

The three passing touchdowns were thrown by three different quarterbacks -- Nathaniel Beauvais, Ryan Clifton and Jacob Coulombe.

In total contrast to the mosquito and bantam games, the peewee team barely managed to squeak past the Eagles by just two points, winning the game by a score of 42-40.

Running back Hugo Djeumeni scored six toucdowns in the see-saw affair, including the go ahead touchdown late in the dying moments of the game.

Ironically the difference in the game was a field goal by Aidan Head to open the scoring in the first quarter, Head was also a perfect 5-for-5 on his extra point attempts.
