Grenadiers swept in Toronto

Posted: July 20th, 2014 @ 4:02pm

With a running game that couldn't get out of its own tracks Saturday, the Kingston Grenadiers closed the regular Ontario Varsity Football League varsity season with a 17-13 defeat at the hands of the Metro Toronto Wildcats.

The Grenadiers, with just 56 yards rushing in 21 carries, got no more than nine yards in any attempt. Twice they were stuffed for no gain and four times the ball carrier was tackled behind the line of scrimmage for a loss.

With the defeat, Kingston sits in a three-team, third-place logjam at 5-3 in the Wettges Conference with Metro and the Toronto Thunder. Metro, which won its third game in a row, beat both of those other two teams; the Grenadiers, meanwhile, did not play Toronto, which closed its season Saturday with a 17-15 loss to the Cornwall Wildcats.

Ottawa Myers Riders completed an undefeated 8-0 season atop the conference standings while Cornwall ended the regular year second at 6-2.

Playing at Esther Shiner Stadium, the Grenadiers got their only touchdown from Jeremy Pendergast, on a pass from quarterback Dylan Fisher. Fisher finished the game with 21 completions from 44 attempts for 181 yards, the touchdown and one interception.

Pendergast was the favourite receiver with eight catches for 76 yards, while Harris McEachern caught seven balls for 56 yards. The big play also eluded the Grenadiers through the air, as the biggest gain was 19 yards and there were no gains of more than 15 yards after the first quarter.

Mike Bashall kicked field goals of 13 and 22 yards for Kingston.

Dylan Bell and Connor O'Neil each intercepted a pass for the Grenadiers, who finished the year having allowed just 115 points in eight games, fourth best in the entire league. After surrendering 51 points on opening day, Kingston allowed opponents to score just 64 points in the remaining seven contests.
The junior varsity Grenadiers ended their season by being beaten 41-29 by Metro, leaving both teams with year-end records of 3-5.

Brendan Steele completed 14 of 25 passes for the Grenadiers for 193 yards, with touchdown passes to Drew Holmes and Nikolas Daniele. Connor Allan rushed 19 times for 95 yards and a touchdown, while Daniele booted a 14-yard field goal for Kingston, which lost three of its last four games.

Kingston, Metro and the Pickering Dolphins finished in a three-way tie for fifth place in the final standings. The teams split the games among each other, with Kingston defeating Pickering by three points in June, and Pickering beating Metro by a point in Week 2.
Metro capped a 7-1 season with a 59-8 win over the bantam Grenadiers Saturday. The loss ends a four-game winning streak for Kingston, which finished the regular schedule with a 4-4 record, tied for fifth place with the Toronto Thunder.
