Three Toronto Teams Participate in OFSAA Bowl Games
Toronto was represented by three squads at this year’s season-ending OFSAA Bowl games.
But none of the Toronto clubs were able to emerge victorious in the contests, that were staged from Nov. 28-30 at the University of Guelph’s Alumni Stadium.
For starters, the Chaminade Gryphons, champions of Toronto’s Catholic schools league, squared off against Kitchener’s Resurrection Phoenix in the Metro Bowl, held on Nov. 28.
The Resurrection team ended up posting a 56-14 decision in that contest.
The following day, the Toronto-based St. Michael’s Kerry Blues, who were representing their Independent schools circuit, met the Thomas A. Stewart Griffins from Peterborough, in the Independent Bowl.
The Griffins were able to celebrate following that game as they posted a 48-7 win.
And then on Nov. 30, the Northern Red Knights, who had advanced to the National Capital Bowl game by winning Toronto’s public schools crown, faced Ottawa’s St. Matthew Tigers.
Though the Red Knights found themselves up 14-3 at the half, the Tigers scored three second-half TDs and were able to pull out a 24-15 victory.
A total of nine OFSAA Bowl games were held in Guelph. Participating squads were representing 17 different leagues from across the province.
The Central Western Ontario Secondary Schools Association had two teams take part - its league champs and finalists as well
