Week 2 of Waterloo County Secondary School Athletic Association (WCSSAA) action is in the books.

Teams will have a better sample size to measure themselves with big football games coming up in October. If the first two weeks are any indication, Eastwood, Jacob Hespeler and Resurrection are on a collision course to compete for the title.

Here’s how  the senior teams fared in this week’s games:

Jacob Hespeler Hawks 54, St. Benedicts Saints 13

CFC Top 50 Jacob Hespeler Hawks showed why they are one of the league’s best. They completely overmatched the St. Benedict’s Saints, improving their record to 2-0.

Carlton Smith scored three times for the Hawks, while Keiran Burnham scored twice. Burnham now has four touchdowns on the year.

Saints head coach Robert Lowes says playing Jacob Hespeler is always tough. He says it was made even more difficult when they lost their best defensive player Drew Walden for the game.

Despite this, Lowes says he was impressed by his receiver George Monaghan.

“He had an outstanding game with a 70 yard touchdown pass and many key receptions throughout the game even though he was double teamed on many occasions,” he said.

But Lowes knows how good the Hawks are.

“They’re a true football school in the sense that their Athletic Director is their Head Coach and they spend a lot of time and money on their football facilities which helps out in getting football players to go to their school,” said Lowes. “They have excellent coaches and their players play year round so they are very much in sync with their systems.”

Resurrection Phoenix 34, Preston Panthers 30

The most thrilling game of the week pitted CFC TOP 50 Resurrection Phoenix looking to improve to 2-0 with Preston Panthers trying to grab their first win of the year.

The Panthers jumped out to a 17-14 halftime lead.

However, the Phoenix sustained three long second half touchdown drives to give themselves an edge.

“In the end our guys showed a lot of heart in the second half,” said Phoenix Head Coach Kyle Armour.

The team had a key defensive stand deep in their own territory late in the ball game.

Phoenix receiver Marcus Joseph scored anothfer two touchdowns – bringing his total to four this season.

Armour says beating the Panthers is a big boost.

“Preston is an excellent team – very well coached on both sides of the ball,” said Armour.  “They executed well and gave our guys all they could handle.”

Eastwood Rebels 40, Grand River Renegades 0

The Eastwood Rebels continued their impressive start to their campaign and look like top-challengers to division favourites and CFC Top 50 Jacob Hespeler Hawks.

In two games they have two shutout performances and have outscored their opponents 77-0. Make no mistake about it – this defense is suffocating.

Tre Nicholson scored twice for the Rebels to tally his third major score in two games.

The Rebels will look to improve their perfect record to 3-0 when they play St. Mary’s Eagles next week.

Huron Heights Huskies 23. Waterloo-Oxford Crusaders 7

The Huron Heights Huskies had another stellar defensive performance allowing only one touchdown in their second win of the season. This follows a 14-0 shutout performance over Forest Heights Trojans in Week 1.

But Huskies Head Coach Holmes indicated that it wasn’t just the defense that got the team the win.

“We gave up a touchdown on the first drive and had trouble stopping the offense early on,” he said.

However, once the offense started to get going, the Huskies defense started to create turnovers which the offense capitalized off of in the game.

“I was happy the way both units fed off each other,” said Holmes.

Other scores:
Glenview Park Panthers 17, Monsignor Doyle 0
Cameron Heights Golden Gaels 26, St. Mary’s Eagles 0
Erin District 30, Sir John A. MacDonald Highlanders 22
St. David Greenbacks 15, Kitchener-Waterloo Raiders 0


Resurrection Phoenix 38 – St. David’s 27

Both teams traded scores throughout, but in the end Resurrection Phoenix kept their record perfect with a big 38-27 win.

The Phoenix had three different scorers than last week, led by Dan Rigler with two touchdowns, as the team showed their true scoring touch.

Jacob Hespeler Hawks 63, St. Benedict Bears 34

34 points would be good enough to beat most sides – but not Jacob Hespeler Hawks.

The Hawks had a once in a life-time performance from running back Brandon Metz who had an incredible nine touchdowns.

This kind of performance is a reason the Hawks are unbeaten so far this season.

Waterloo-Oxford Crusaders 13, Huron Heights Huskies 10

Huron Heights Huskies has had a difficult time finding the end zone in their 0-2 start so far and it showed again this past week.

The Waterloo-Oxford Crusaders put up just enough points to edge out the Huskies.

Jesse Lautenslager and Tyco Archer each scored for Crusaders.

Waterloo Vikings 15, Bluevale Knights 12

Waterloo Vikings played only their first game of the year this week, but it was a successful debut.

Touchdowns from Shanif Hirani and Josh Magna were the difference for the Vikings.

Eastwood Rebels 30, Grand River Renegades 20

Eastwood Rebels improved to 2-0, becoming the only unbeaten team in Divison B with a solid 30-20 win over Grand River Renegades.

Ahmed Kanu was a monster for the Rebels as he scored two touchdowns and even added a safety on the defensive side of the ball to give the Rebels the edge.

Other Scores:
Glenview Park  Panthers 49, Monsignor Doyle 22
St. Mary’s Eagles 23, Cameron Heights Golden Gaels 12
