The Papatoetoe WILDCATS took to the field to play perennial South Auckland stalwarts the Sth Auckland Raiders. After last years semi final defeat in the rain, the WILDCATS were ready to settle the score and show who really was the powerhouse south of the Mangere Bridge.

Blow for blow the Sth Auckland Raiders through everything at the WILDCATS offence with MLB Kevin Palalagi making his presence felt. None the less the “wall of meat” was impenetrable and soon the points started amassing on the score board.

Once again Offensive Coordinator Danny Tixier let loose his simple yet effective power running game giving Guso and Mike the opportunities they needed to make the yards and step through to the end zone. D Fence were not to be left without scoring and two picks from D provided a score reflecting the work on both sides of the field. A nice touch down by TE Joseph Taula added a little more spice to the mix and the final score was 36 – 0.

The WILDCATS happy with the shutout have set the benchmark for the season. Playing not as individuals or

no you dont!

superstars we do everything as a family. All get to play and all take the field. No one better than the other. Again we would like to thank all the supporters and families that stayed back after the Juniors game to watch the Seniors solidify their place at the top of the table going into round five.

Unfortunately our Juniors went down to the Raiders who put up a valiant game and showed what can be done at the Junior level. To our boys again its work hard train hard and the rest will come. Thanks again to Coach Tyler, Coach Behlow and Coach Scanlon for their continued efforts with our Junior program. They are the WILDCATS of the future and the future of our club.

As always we want to thank the parents who without your support we would not be able to field a JUnior team each and every week. Next week the North Harbour Pride at Harvey Wright.
