ONT: Wild opening week in WCSSAA

Week One in WCSSAA (Waterloo County) senior boys football saw everything from blowouts, to stellar defensive performances, to teams making the most of their high powered offenses.

Here’s a look at how some of the teams did this week in five feature games:

Resurrection Phoenix 41, Bluevale Knights 7

The Phoenix benefited from touchdown passes and one rushing touchdown from quarterback Paul Henning.

Head coach Kyle Armour said the play went beyond Henning.

“Receiver Marcus Joseph had an excellent game with two big touchdowns and some big first downs,” he said.

Armour added that front seven helped control the game and played “good football.”

At halftime, the Phoenix held a 20-7 and widened the gap the rest of the way.

“Although it was a good game on the scoreboard for us, there are still a lot of mistakes that were made in the game,” said Armour.  “We need to get these fixed up for our next game.”

The Phoenix take on Preston next week.

Huron Heights Huskies 14, Forest Heights Trojans 0

The Huron Heights Huskies had some huge defensive plays en route to a 14-0 shutout victory over Forest Heights Trojans.

Even though the defense stepped up, Huskies head coach Aaron Holmes says the play of his QB Brendan McKracken stood out.

Every Davy and Brendan McKracken each reached the end zone for the Huskies.

The Huskies will try to improve to 2-0 on the year when the face Waterloo-Oxford (0-1) next week.
