Belleville Minor Football League 2015 Finals
The Hotch's Auto Parts Razorbacks put the capper on an undefeated season and the Quinte Pediatrics Saints avenged a regular-season loss to the McConnell Funeral Home Centre Hastings Centurions during Championship Day for the Belleville Minor Football League, Saturday at MAS Park Field 2.
• A Final
Hotch's, which ran roughshod over the opposition en route to a perfect 7-and-0 regular-season record, made it eight in a row by pitching a shutout in the A Final for the Pat Carty Memorial Trophy with a 44-0 win over the SWE Autoglass Chargers.
Brandon Vance was the offensive catalyst for the Razorbacks, rumbling for four rushing touchdowns, while Eric Conlon (2) and league MVP Daniel Panetta also had TDs for Hotch's. Panetta added a convert.
• B Final
In the most exciting game of the day, Saints and Cents did not disappoint in a rematch of their regular season battle at Cooke Field in Madoc where Centre Hastings wiped out a two-touchdown deficit to win by a point in the dying seconds of the contest.
Saturday was no different, as the lead changed hands several times before the Saints punched in a pair of fourth-quarter majors to seal the deal, 30-16, and take home the Mike Schad Bowl.
Mac Kinnear had a hat trick of TDs to lead the Saints while Mike McFaul also scored a major. Matt Berry recorded three two-point converts.
Connor Kennedy handled all of the scoring for the Centurions with two touchdowns and a pair of two-point conversions.
• C Final
In an all-Quinte West confrontation, the Trenton Kiwanis Club Tigers proved too much for the Trent Hills Titans, scoring a 32-19 win for the Red Townsend Memorial Trophy.
Collin Miller scored three touchdowns to lead the Tigers attack while Dalton Stephenson and Wyatt Vreugdenhill each contributed with solo TDs. Shawn Bryans produced a two-point convert.
Scoring details for Trent Hills were unavailable.
• D Final
In a rematch of last year's D Final, the Bancroft T-Hawks won their second straight Vern Goyer Memorial Trophy by grounding the Scott's Haulage/Diamond Electric Falcons. Scoring details were unavailable.
Awards for the 2015 season were presented during Championship Day with Daniel Panetta of Hotch's earning MVP laurels while Dray Hopkins of Bancroft was named Rookie of the Year.
Other award winners were:
Lausen Mitchell, Titans, Coaches Award; Austin McCracken, Centurioins, Commissioner's Award; Ayden McLean, Chargers, outstanding defensive lineman; Cooper McKeown, Tigers, defensive Player of the Year; Connor O'Donnell, Falcons, outstanding offensive lineman; and Mike McFaul, Saints, offensive Player of the Year.
During the trophy presentations, former BMFL commissioner James Hurst pointed out that Belleville native Andrew Shaw of the Chicago Blackhawks was the league's Rookie of the Year in 2003. Shaw was recently part of his second Stanley Cup championship as the Hawks defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning in this year's NHL playoff finals.
