Grenadiers hope to reverse fortunes against Dolphins  July 31st, 2015
By CLAUDE SCILLEY 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... [Read More]

Unfamiliar opponent awaits Grenadiers in playoff opener  July 24th, 2015

By CLAUDE SCILLEY When Curtis Finkeldey scored a touchdown, giving his team a 14-point lead with less than four minutes to play Saturday afternoon, many people present believed he had provided his team with the score that would clinch a victory. Instead, he could well have provided the... [Read More]
Grenadiers offensive line slowly gaining respect  July 10th, 2015
By CLAUDE SCILLEY If the coaches have done their homework well, they’ve placed a considerable challenge in front of the Kingston Grenadiers’ offensive linemen—again—and those players know it. “They’re big, they’re fast; they’re like any team... [Read More]
Harry Robinson rushes for 238 yards as Grenadiers whip Wildcats  July 4th, 2015
By CLAUDE SCILLEY Kingston Grenadiers are proving to be a pretty resilient bunch. They ignored a trick play that led to a touchdown on their opponent’s first possession Saturday, scoring the next time they had the ball. They shook off the effects of a turnover that led the Metro... [Read More]
Turnovers, injuries doom Grenadiers against Ottawa  June 28th, 2015
By CLAUDE SCILLEY No one is likely to dispute it: for the Kingston Grenadiers to defeat the best team in the Ontario Varsity Football League, they’d have to play a near perfect football game. In the first half of their game Saturday, the Grenadiers did just that, and they trailed the... [Read More]

Riley Avery scores five touchdowns as Grenadiers beat Markham  June 21st, 2015

Sketchy numbers don't define Grenadiers' victory  May 31st, 2015
By CLAUDE SCILLEY So let’s get this straight. You go on the road, it’s pouring rain, and you’re playing a team that won its last game 49-0. You throw five interceptions, and your collective rushing game goes one yard backwards. And you won? Unlikely as it might be in... [Read More]

By CLAUDE SCILLEY You can go on an adventure like a Hobbit - with wide-eyed anticipation. Or you can undertake an adventure like a member of the Kingston Grenadiers football team - with trepidation.

Grenadiers' season ends with playoff loss at Markham  August 4th, 2013
By CLAUDE SCILLEY MARKHAM - As symbolism goes, it was perfect. A receiver open in the end zone; a beleaguered quarterback spots him there.

Grenadiers set to host playoff game Saturday  July 26th, 2013
By CLAUDE SCILLEY As pregame orations go, Bob Mullen's message to the Kingston Grenadiers Thursday night was a trifle unorthodox.
