Sydenham, Frontenac play football finals Wednesday

Posted: November 24th, 2014 @ 9:08pm

Two teams that have been waiting to put the finishing touches on their respective high school football seasons will finally do so on Wednesday.

The Sydenham Golden Eagles, who had their National Capital Bowl game with Peterborough's Crestwood Mustangs postponed on Saturday-when the City of Belleville declared Mary Ann Sills Park unplayable-will play that game at 2 p.m. at the multi-purpose facility on Palmer Road.

That game will follow the regional junior contest, between the Kingston Area champion La Salle Black Knights and the Fenelon Falls Falcons.

After an undefeated regular season, Sydenham whipped La Salle 47-0 in the KASSAA senior double-A final and then held on to defeat Brockville 31-28 in an eastern Ontario semifinal. The Golden Eagles played their last game Nov. 14, when they defeated Almonte 19-14 in the EOSSAA championship game.

Crestwood, the Peterborough champion, qualified by defeating Belleville Centennial, the Bay of Quinte champion, 16-2 in the central Ontario final, and St. Mark of Manotick, the Ottawa-Carleton winner, 34-17, in a regional semifinal, also Nov. 14.

Crestwood and Sydenham met in the 2010 National Capital Bowl at Rogers Centre in Toronto, where the Mustangs prevailed 16-13 in overtime.

Frontenac Falcons, meanwhile, will try to shake off the rust of a 17-day layoff-they last played when they won the Kingston Area AAA title over Regi Nov. 8-when they meet the Richview Saints in their AAA OFSAA Bowl Wednesday at Ron Joyce Stadium in Hamilton.

The Falcons overcame a 1-3 start to win their last four games, including a 20-9 win over Regi in the county final. Since there are no AAA schools in eastern Ontario outside of KASSAA, Frontenac has been cooling its heels ever since.

Richview, meanwhile, is coming off a 15-0 win over Etobicoke in the Toronto District Secondary Schools Athletic Association final Thursday. The Saints, 3-1 in their regular year, won three straight playoff games, the last two by shutout.

Frontenac has been to an OFSAA Bowl eight times since Kingston-area schools first became involved in the provincial playoffs, winning six times. After back-to-back National Capital Bowl victories in 2011-12, the Falcons were beaten 32-1 by Lorne Park of Mississauga last year.

The Falcons' game is scheduled for 3:30 p.m.
