Three familiar names were among the dozen incoming freshmen introduced by Queen’s Golden Gaels football coach Pat Sheahan at the team’s annual fundraising gala in Toronto Saturday night.

Jeremy Pendergast, who Sheahan described as “the outstanding athlete in the local recruiting class,” will follow in the footsteps of his father, Tim, quarterback of the 1992 national championship team, and his brother, Matt, who will begin his third season with the Gaels this fall.

Pendergast, a receiver, played his high school ball with the Holy Cross Crusaders and junior football with the Kingston Grenadiers.

Another legacy coming to the Gaels is wide receiver-defensive back Connor McQuilkin, via Corpus Christi high school in Burlington. His older brother, Luke, was a linebacker with the Gaels.

Overtime seems to suit the Queen’s Golden Gaels.

The Gaels haven’t lost an overtime game since 2011, and Saturday afternoon they made it four in a row in extra time, when they defeated the Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks 85-78 in double overtime in an Ontario University Athletics women’s basketball quarter-final in Waterloo.

"Our team loves overtime," Gaels coach Dave Wilson said. "Our kids have never lost in overtime, so they were very confident heading in, and almost even more (confident) heading into the second overtime. It was a very calm feeling on our bench."

SMITHS FALLS—Sydenham Golden Eagles aren’t just going to the provincial high school AA basketball tournament; they’re going as the eastern Ontario champions.

You can’t put too fine a point on that, Eagles coach Shaun Kennedy believes.

“There was a lot on the line,” Kennedy said, after Sydenham defeated the Smiths Falls Redhawks 47-28 in the championship game of the Eastern Ontario Secondary Schools Athletic Association AA tournament Friday afternoon.

“There were a lot of seeding ramifications for OFSAA that were going to come out of this tournament,” Kennedy explained. “Even though we both advance, we had an early loss in our season to Smith Falls in a tournament. We knew the importance of the seeding going into this game.

“We had to close the season with a win over Smiths Falls.”

Here’s why:

SMITHS FALLS—The less people know about his basketball team, Shaun Kennedy believes, the better.

To that end Thursday, the Sydenham Golden Eagles did some unfamiliar stuff on the first day of the Eastern Ontario Secondary Schools Athletic Association double-A basketball tournament.

It didn’t hurt the Eagles a bit. In quickly gaining the upper hand—on their way to two decisive vicories—the Eagles gave Kennedy a chance to experiment with some things his Kingston Area adversaries might not recognize.

It was a strategy designed, he said, to see which among Plans B, C and D might be useful if, down the playoff road, Plan A no longer works.

SMITHS FALLS—Sydenham Golden Eagles opened the Eastern Ontario Secondary Schools Athletic Association double-A basketball tournament with a decisive 56-21 victory over the St. Michael’s Mustangs of Kemptville here Thursday morning.

The Eagles, Kingston Area champions, buried St. Mike’s under a withering defensive display, as the Mustangs didn’t get a basket until the game’s seventh minute, didn’t get their second until 11 minutes had been played and didn’t score in the second half until the 2:20 point in the third quarter.

Sydenham led 33-8 at halftime and scored the first nine points of the second half.
