AKO suffers first defeat
Mady fighters on top Three fighters from Mady’s Mixed Martial Arts and Kickboxing defeated their Michigan opponents on the weekend at a Michigan Fight League event at Gulliano’s night club in Chesterfield, Mich.
Twenty-one-year-old Theo Toney (170 lb.) overtook Mike Mileke in the main event, submitting him two minutes into the first round, while 17-year-old Mike Habib (145 lb.) beat Yani Cavis by unanimous decision in an international rules kickboxing match. In the 165-pound class, Kyle Prepolec, 19, defeated Jeremy Diller with a first-round TKO.
The Windsor AKO Fratmen fell for the first time in the Ontario Football Conference season Saturday.
The Fratmen lost 33-11 to the Braves in Burlington as the two teams now share the top spot in the league with 3-1 records.
The St. Leonard Cougars missed a chance to make it a three-way tie for first place by falling 23-16 to the Hamilton Hurricanes.
Burlington jumped to a 10-0 lead after the first quarter and took control with 23 points in the second quarter to jump to a 33-6 lead.
“It wasn’t a very good game and it was mostly self inflicted,” AKO head coach Mike Lachance said.
Making his first start at quarterback, Terry Mauldin completed four-of-23 passes for 100 yards including a 70-yard touchdown strike to Ricky Simons.
Mauldin also led the Fratmen in rushing with 64 yards on 14 carries and conceded safety accounted for the rest of AKO’s scoring.
“He was one of the bright spots, but we had seven dropped passes,” Lachance said. Kicker Steve Smith had a 35-yard field goal. AKO and Burlington will meet again Saturday at Windsor Stadium in a showdown for top spot in the league.
