The Wildcats continue to dominate in the Scottish Junior conference of the BAFA National League as they storm to a 50 – 0 victory over the East Kilbride Pirates.
“It was a strange day with there being a much later kick off than we’re used to, ” commented Head Coach, Robbie Paulin. “We were down a lot of players due to illness, injuries and holidays which also threw off our usual routine. I understand that the Pirates were also lacking some players too.”
The Highland side dominated from the start with the defensive line – made up of Jordan Coia, Luke Crant, Edan Gardner, Erem Demirel and Andrew Ednie – taking control and keeping up that pressure throughout the whole game.
On offense the Wildcats went to the air with completions and passing touchdowns to Demirel, Niall Martin and Ewan Sime.
Running Backs Cameron Davies and Ciaran Docherty also put points on the board with some rushing touchdowns with Chris Shaw picking up an extra point conversion and Jamie Anderson scoring defensive touchdown.
Declan Maclennan also found the endzone with a burst of speed for a 51 yard rushing touchdown from slot receiver.
“It was unfortunate that the Pirates had to withdraw just before half time but we understand and respect their reasons as continuing on with the game would have put their already depleted squad at risk. This is no reflection on the organisation of East Kilbride, which is a fantastic and professional set up!” Paulin added. “We achieved what we set out to do today, which was to make sure we held them to zero as it is points against that is going to affect our playoff chances.”
