The football season is over for Brant’s top junior teams.
Both the champion North Park Collegiate Trojans and the runner-up Assumption College Lions advanced to the Ontario Regional Junior Football Championship this season, but both teams were knocked out in their quarter-final games this week.
The Lions lost a 34-31 decision in overtime on Friday to Pickering. The game ended 28-28. Kevin Cann kicked a field goal for the Lions before Pickering scored a major on their overtime possession to end Assumption’s season.
On Tuesday, The Trojans fell behind 21-0 before halftime and were down 28-0 in the third quarter against the Blessed Trinity Thunder from Grimsby.
North Park fought back with a pair of touchdowns – a running touchdown from Keaton Wray and a blocked kick touchdown by Matt Minutillo – to make it 28-12.
But the Thunder weren’t done scoring either and the game ended 42-29 in favour of the team from Grimsby.
