Cornwall Ontario – CFN confirmed after speaking with Rodney Rivette of the Cornwall Nationals that the team is meeting today with FHL officials to talk about the survival of the team.
With attendance shriveling since it lost its promotional contract with this newspaper, the loss of its admired head coach, and now its star player and captain, Ahmed “Madman” Mahfouz, the team is being talked about on anti-social media as being done.
Mahfouz was an area fan favorite for his ferocious play and ability to score going back to his days with the Akwesasne Warriors.
The team has been struggling to get people to come to the games with posted attendance hovering around 500 per game.
We will be updating as more information becomes available.
