In a match that had the Grand River Gargoyles feeling claw-fully defeated, the Hamilton Wildcats pounced their way to a dominant victory with a wild final score of 15.20.110 to 1.2.8.
The Wildcats showed their true stripes from the beginning, outpacing and outscoring their Gargoyle opponents. With a defense as sturdy as a fortress and tackles that hit like a feral feline, the Wildcats left the Gargoyles scratching their heads.
Try as they might, the Gargoyles stayed within reach during the 1st quarter but couldn’t tame the Wildcats’ relentless scoring frenzy in the 2nd quarter. The Wildcats’ forwards were on the prowl, unleashing goals with precision and agility, while the Gargoyles’ defense was left chasing shadows.
Despite the lopsided result, the Gargoyles fought gallantly and mustered a lone goal by Derek “Buck” Nash on his birthday (1st for the club), showing their spirit couldn’t be tamed. It was a game where the Wildcats truly roared and the Gargoyles learned some valuable lessons.
With this victory, the Wildcats proved they were the kings of the jungle, leaving the Gargoyles to regroup and plot their comeback strategy. It’s a reminder that in the wild world of Aussie Rules, anything can happen, and the Gargoyles will undoubtedly lick their wounds and come back stronger, ready to unleash their fury in their push for a finals birth.
The Gargoyles will have a bye week for Round 8 but then take on the Toronto Rebels on July 29 @ 1pm at Humber South in Etobicoke.
