The CJFL is proud to announce the Week 7 Players of the Week.
Offensive Players of the Week
QB Riley Naujoks – Winnipeg Rifles
Despite the loss the Rifles offence tallied 424 total yards, 346 of it from the lefthanded quarterback Riley Naujoks. He completed 26 passes for 346 yards and had a pair of touchdowns. He also rushed five times for 11 yards.
QB Daniel Mailloux – Windsor AKO Fratmen
In handing the defending OFC Champion Hamilton Hurricanes their first loss of the 2019 campaign Daniel Mailloux completed 18 of 32 passes to eight different receivers for 294 yards and three touchdowns. He also scrambled for another touchdown on the ground.
RB Andrew Pocrnic – Langley Rams
The Rams ground game set the tone in their road win on Saturday led by Andrew Pocrnic with his 12 carries for 143 yards and two touchdowns. Coming out of the backfield he caught two passes for 18 yards.
Defensive Players of the Week
DB Troy Wilson – Winnipeg Rifles
The Rifles were led by defensive back Troy Wilson who had a game high nine solo tackles and was the leader on the field.
LB Cameron Howes – Ottawa Sooners
The Sooners defence stymied the Niagara offence all afternoon and Cameron Howes proved to be a one man wrecking crew. In addition to his three sacks he made five solo tackles and collected a knockdown.
DB Kyle Clarot - Langley Rams
The Rams defence didn’t allow a point against the VI Raiders on the road and one of the big reasons was the play of their secondary and specifically Kyle Clarot. He compiled four solo tackles, had 1.5 sacks and knockdown a pass down.
Special Teams Players of the Week
R Adner St. Hilaire – Edmonton Huskies
He had an outstanding game highlighted by returning a punt 39 yards for a touchdown. His three special teams tackles were all on punt covers as the gunner. One of these tackles pushed the Rifles player back to the one yard line after catching it on the 25. As one of the gunners he limited 12 punt returns to a combined total of 18 yards.
K Sam Richardson – Windsor AKO Fratmen
In his first game of the season, Richardson had quite the coming out party. The Frat kicker was perfect on all three of his field goal attempts, his longest coming from 26 yards out. He was also perfect on all five converts he attempted and he averaged 44.4 yards on his kickoffs.
R Brandon Poulin – Valley Huskers
He had one of the highlights of the weekend across the CJFL returning a missed field goal 118 yards for a touchdown. He also averaged 28.5 yards on four kickoff returns and had five punt returns for 37 yards.

Windsor AKO Fratmen 46
Hamilton Hurricanes 30
The Fratmen made a statement this past weekend with a very balanced game between their offence and defence. In all they compiled 440 yards of total offence and only allowed 150 to the previously undefeated Hurricanes.
Of the 440 yards of offence, 433 of it came through the air. Quarterback Daniel Mailloux completed 18 passes for 294 yards and three touchdowns and also ran for one. Meanwhile back-up Colton Allen gathered another 139 yards and threw a major.
Four different receivers caught touchdown passes. Branden McCraney caught a touchdown and had 110 yards on only four receptions. Michael Ryan hauled in five passes for 105 yards and a major while Cody Holmes and Jared Hayes-Williams also caught touchdown passes.
The defence was solid racking up five sacks and forcing four turnovers. Elijah Blyhe had a game high seven tackles and a pick. Jalen Butcher also had an interception.
The Hurricanes struggled in Windsor with their quarterback Ethan Belbeck one of the bright spots. He threw for 149 yards and two touchdowns and ran for two others. Both Keyshaun Jordan and Quincey Belanger each caught a touchdown pass.
Defensively the Canes tallied four sacks, two of them by Isaiah Joseph. Demarre Brown collected five solo tackles, a knockdown and had a fumble recovery.
This coming weekend the Fratmen (3-1) visit the GTA Grizzlies (1-4) on Sunday while the Hurricanes (4-1) host the Niagara Raiders (1-4) on Saturday afternoon.
London Beefeaters 56
GTA Grizzlies 3
The Beefeaters scored 21 points in the second quarter and never looked back pounding the Grizzlies. Quarterback Jake Pow returned and threw for 232 yards and a touchdown. Clarke McCallum also threw a touchdown pass. Felix Noel and Spencer Foster each hauled in a major.
On the ground Danny Bryne scored two touchdowns and Noel and Tazie Vang-Bell each scored one of their own.
The defence even got on the scoreboard and forced four turnovers. Perhaps the highlight was when Will Corcoran recovered a fumble and returned it 75 yards for a touchdown. They also compiled four sacks.
The lone Grizzlies points came on a 28 yard field goal from kicker Gagan Bains.
This coming weekend the Beefeaters (4-1) will host the Ottawa Sooners (1-3) and the Grizzlies (1-4) will welcome the Windsor AKO Fratmen (3-1).
Ottawa Sooners 24
Niagara Raiders 6
The Sooners get in the win column for the first time this season scoring 17 points in the final quarter highlighted with a balanced attack led by the run game. Five ball carriers tallied 188 yards with Rogean Wilson and quarterback Brett Massonaive each scoring touchdowns. Massonaive also threw for 129 yards and found Shamar Skerritt for a major.
Defensively Cameron Howes was a beast with three sacks, four solo tackles and a knockdown. Max Sabourin had a pair of interceptions.
The Raiders struggled on the offensive side. Quarterback Ethan Stokes scored their lone touchdown, scoring it with his legs rather than his arm. He finished throwing for 167 yards.
On the defensive side Nathanael Willems had a nice game blocking a kick, recovering it and also made five solo tackles.
This coming weekend the Sooners (1-3) will visit the London Beefeaters (4-1) and the Raiders (1-4) will play in Hamilton against the Hurricanes (4-1) at 1:00pm on Saturday opening Week 8 of the CJFL season.
