They regretted it the day it happened.

The Kingston Grenadiers have regretted it a little bit more every week since.

That’s because the last-minute 28-27 defeat the Grenadiers suffered at the hands of the West Durham Dolphins on the opening weekend of the Ontario Varsity Football League season ultimately cost them second place, and home field for this weekend’s conference semifinal.

Instead, the Dolphins will host it at Pine Ridge Secondary School in Pickering Saturday at noon.

It was a painful defeat for the Grenadiers, who led 13-0 at halftime and 27-14 early in the fourth quarter. Leading by six points, the Grens had the visiting Dolphins pinned at their own 10-yard line with three minutes to play, but couldn’t prevent West Durham from driving the field for the winning score, which came with 32 seconds on the clock.

Canada defeated Puerto Rico 3-1 Sunday to claim the bronze medal in the men’s volleyball tournament on the final day of the XVII Pan American Games in Toronto.

It was the second time the Canadians defeated Puerto Rico in the tournament. In all, Canada won four of five matches, with a semifinal defeat at the hands of Argentina the only blemish on its record. The third-place finish matched the best ever at the Pan Am Games for the Canadian men. Canada also won bronze in Winnipeg in 1999.

Argentina went on to win the gold medal, with a 3-2 win Sunday over Brazil.

Adam Simac, the former Queen’s Golden Gael on the Canadian team, did not play in Sunday’s match, but his medal is the 12th won at these Games by an athlete with a tie to Kingston.

Canada won its first men’s basketball medal in the history of the Pan American Games Saturday afternoon, silver, when it dropped an 86-71 decision to Brazil in the championship game of the tournament at the Ryerson Athletic Centre in downtown Toronto.

Canada’s previous best finish in the 64-year history of the Games had been fourth, at Caracas, in 1983. At the last Games, 2011, the Canadian team finished sixth.

Aaron Doornekamp had two points for Canada in 27 minutes of playing time, as well as three rebounds, four assists and a steal. It was the second appearance in the Games for the former Ernestown Eagle, having been part of Canada’s seventh-place team in 2007.

Also winning a medal was Canadian assistant coach Dave Smart, the Carleton University coach and a former varsity player at Queen's.
