Qb Vince Richard Mehana

With Qb Vince Richard Mehana at the helm the WILDCATS Colts started the season well with a convincing win over the Spartans 10 to 2. With the likes of “Big Country” and Ken back from the Juniors , Colts was definitly taking it up another level.

Week two saw the Colts face a seasoned Metro team who played a hard D against our offence but were unable to stop Ken nd Vince and the O Line from scoring 14 points to 8. Two wins on the hop and the confidence levels were high as we faced a defeated Lightning the following week who were yet to win a game.

O on the run again

O on the run again

And as the ole adage goes, never underestimate your enemy, theWildcats colts soon found out why. Though up beat the Wildcats O struggled to complete downs with continued fumbles and dropped balls. Mean while a besieged Lightning were ready to prove themselves on their home ground and found our defensive backs wanting time and time again. Frustrated and scoreless it would be our D that scored any points forcing a safety, while the Lightning put on a healthy 28 points. Much humble pie was left on the ground and the wildcats would go away with much to do and plan for the coming week. Though down we were definitley not out and this week we will reclaim our pride of place at the top of the table.

Kiwi Bowl replay vs Metro Lions

D fence intercepts

The Red Army,   The Mumu Aiga, the Camaraderie de Rouge were ready to take on the Lions and prove themselves yet again as worthy of the title”Champions” though we prefer the title “family” because thats what we are at the Wildcats.

Now getting back to all things football, the Wildcats O was finding difficult to find momentum. Ten holding flags plus numerous others by the refs didnt help. And yet though there  was nothing on offense at all, defence was a different story with both teams blitzing thru. Offensively, the only excitement really came from a couple of Peter Jackson extras trying out for the Hobbit pushing each other around in the 4th quarter of the game.

Despite Metro scoring first the Wildcats D scored three times with intercepts a saftey and a return. Metro went down 18-6 to the current Kiwibowl Champions with both Teams needing to get themselves organised as the Hawks having Coach Hall back , looking to get their program back on track.

2010 Season begins

The Red Wall of Meat

The defending Kiwi Bowl Champions season 2010 finally kicked off at Bay Roskill and apart from one or two glitches along the way the day at Bay Roskill was a real good one with Teams performing very well, considering it is the very first game of the season.

The Spartan Seniors played the Wildcats, with the Red Army going away with the win at 69-0. The Spartans had a lot of Lineman and it looked as though their “Skilled Players” must of missed the bus to Blockhouse Bay. The Wildcats relied a lot on their Running Back Jerry Key who scored something like 5 Touchdowns against a very tired Spartans Defense.

All and all it was a good first outing by the Wildcats with plenty of rookies getting a chance to cut their teeth in what will be another hard played season.
