Bearcub football comes to an end for the 2019 season

GRAFTON—The Grafton Bearcubs youth football teams concluded their seasons recently, with the Midget and Pee Wee squads both making the postseason after Top 5 finishes in their respective divisions.

The older Midget squad, led by head coach Hartsel Keener, finished 5-3 and was assigned the #5 seed in the Mountaineer Youth Football Conference playoffs.

They traveled to #4 Buckhannon (5-3) on Sunday for a rematch against the Buccaneers, who won the first contest on September 8 by the score of 20-6.

The Buccaneers would get the better of the Bearcubs once again, by the exact same score.

The Bearcub Pee Wees (6-2), under the leadership of head coach Ben Kinsey, also had an outstanding season and were awarded the #4 seed in the MYFC bracket.

They hosted #5 seed Lewis County (6-2) on Saturday at 7:00 p.m., at McKinney Field. The Minutemen capitalized on a few Bearcubs’ mistakes, to take the victory by the score of 33-7.

The Mighty Mites, coached by Rick Glaspell, also had an outstanding year and it appears that the Pee Wee and Midget squads will be in great shape after the wonderful job done by Glaspell and his staff.

The Bearcub cheerleaders also did an amazing job this season and represented the community with class and pride.

Thank you to all the parents, fans, coaches, and local businesses who came out to the games and supported Taylor County Youth football and made 2019 another successful season.
