Wildcats Head to Nation’s Capital for National Semi Final

The Edmonton Wildcats head east to the nation’s capital this weekend for a showdown with the Ottawa Sooners. At stake are the Intergold Cup and a trip to the Canadian Bowl to be held in BC this year on Saturday Nov 14th.

The Wildcats are coming off an emotional win over the Saskatoon Hilltops in the weekend’s PFC final in Saskatoon under less than ideal conditions. The Wildcats are looking to continue the momentum heading into this weekend’s matchup against the Ottawa Sooners. This is the first time that either team has faced each other since 1983 when the Wildcats played and defeated the Sooners to win the National Championship.

Andy Pilon will once again be called upon to orchestrate the offense with the likes of wide receiver Kevin Wuthrich, who led the conference during the regular season with 8 TD catches, along with Mike Wojcicki and rookie sensation Jerit Lambert. Justin McEvoy will provide the running punch, with Liam Dow and Shiane Runcie in support.

On Defense look for line backer Matt Lalande and Mike Podloski to have another dominating game with the support of Corbin Sharun at safety and David Berg and Miguel Barker on the corners.

Specials teams will certainly play a big role in this game with Punter/Place kicker Ben Hnidan being a key factor after posting the most points in the PFC this season. Jerit Lambert and David Berg will give the Wildcats that one two punch on punt returns and should make for an exciting afternoon, if they are able to break loose in the game.

All Edmonton Wildcat practices are at Rundle Park and the players take to the field at around 7:30 pm nightly.
