Colts Mighty Mites lose heartbreaker to Poquoson

The Middlesex Colts Youth Football League players and cheerleaders are proud to show their support in the fight against breast cancer during October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The last time a Middlesex football team traveled to play the Poquoson Bull Islanders it was in the fall of 1976. Middlesex lost a hard fought contest that evening. Thirty-seven years later the Middlesex Colts Mighty Mites experienced the same fate, losing a tightly-contested game 19-13. Even though the Colts Mighty Mites lost the game, the spirited Colt fans stood and gave the young Colts a standing ovation after the game for their gutty effort.

In the Midgets game, the Colts fought hard but were defeated 25-6. Adam Smith broke loose on a 60-yard scamper to score the lone Colts touchdown.

In the Mites game, the Colts were defeated 18-0, and in the Juniors game, the Colts were defeated 38-0.

This Saturday, October 12, is homecoming for the Colts when they take on Gloucester White at the Middlesex Sports Complex. Game times are Mites, 9:30 a.m.; Mighty Mites, 11 a.m.; Midgets, 12:30 p.m.; and Juniors, 2 p.m.
