The Highland Wildcats won their penultimate game of the regular season against the East Kilbride Pirates 26-0. As a result of this victory the junior Wildcats qualified for the U19 Scottish championship final. The Wildcats were the first team to score in the game when Euan Crawford threw a touchdown pass to wide receiver Ewan Sime. After the touchdown Paul Noble rushed in to score a 2 point conversion to put the score up at 8-0. They then scored later on in the half when Declan Maclennan scored the Wildcats second touchdown of the game and his 2nd rushing touchdown of the season. Unfortunately the touchdown was unconverted but it increased the home sides lead in the game.
Before the end of the half Euan Crawford threw another passing touchdown to Ewan Sime. This wasn’t converted but it left the score at 20-0 heading into the half time break. In the second half Euan Crawford threw a touchdown pass to Declan Maclennan to increase the play-off bound Wildcats lead to 26. Unfortunately this was the last touchdown of the game because the Pirates defense stepped up to the plate and shut down the Wildcats offense for the majority of the second half. However the Wildcats returned the favor by shutting out the Pirates offense. The final score was 26-0 to the Wildcats.
The next time the junior Wildcats will be in action will be on the 26th July when they will play the Clackmannanshire Ravens at Bught Park.
