Oak Harbor teams lose in semifinals / Youth football

The Oak Harbor youth football season came to an end Saturday, Nov. 4, in Anacortes when the final two local teams still standing lost in the semifinals of the North Cascade Youth Football League championship tournament.

Oak Harbor Purple, members of the Midget Division (9- and 10-year-olds), lost to Anacortes 44-8, while the Oak Harbor Peewee team (6- through 8-year-olds) fell to Anacortes 31-8.

The first round of the playoffs was held Oct. 28.

In the Midget Division, Oak Harbor Purple defeated Sedro-Woolley Blue 46-8 and Oak Harbor Gold lost to Mount Vernon Green 18-0.

In the Peewee Division, Oak Harbor blanked Sedro-Woolley White 34-0.

In the Junior Division (11- and 12-year-olds), Oak Harbor Purple lost to the Bellingham Vikings 19-12.

In the Senior Division (13- and 14-year-olds), Mount Vernon topped Oak Harbor 41-12.

The highlight for Oak Harbor was an 85-yard scoring punt return by Houston.

Wyatt Cardon kicked the two-point conversion.

Cardon, according to coach Andrew Fulton, was the only player in the division to successfully kick extra points during the season. At this level, a kick is worth two points and a run one.

Cardon’s kicking gave Oak Harbor “an edge all season,” Fulton said.

In the loss, the Oak Harbor players “fought ‘til the last second,” Fulton said. “The Wildcats had a great season, finishing 6-3 with four of the games being complete shut outs. I am very proud of everything this team has accomplished; they gave it everything they had in every game and I couldn’t have been blessed with better players.”

Information on the other Oak Harbor games was not submitted.
