Wednesday was jam-packed in Florida, with 16 Pop Warner football games and the Jr. Midget Cheer Championships taking place in Lake Buena Vista. With ESPN360 cameras capturing four of the football games, it truly was a hectic day.
-- Six cheerleading champions were crowned: the St. Cecelias Golden Knights (Advanced Small), the Jackson Jaguars (Advanced Large), the Billerica Braves (Novice Small), the Iselin Giants (Novice Large), the Everett Huskies (Intermediate Small) and the Fairfield Giants (Intermediate Large).
-- The White Oak Warriors football club continues to roll, winning the Jr. Peewee Semifinals, 32-0, and the Peewee semifinals, also 32-0. Both teams are going for a national title this weekend.
-- The Midget consolation bracket probably had the game of the day. The SE Dallas Wolverines beat the Murrieta Valley Thunderhawks, 25-24. The Wolverines were down 16-0 at halftime and 24-6 after three quarters, but scored 19 points in the decisive fourth quarter to stun the Thunderhawks.
Thursday is an off day for football, but the dance competition will keep the Disney Wide World of Sports Complex buzzing all day long. Football and cheerleading resumes Friday.
