If you haven’t already heard, the South Lions’ Senior Football team beat the Sault Ste. Marie St. Mary’s Knights 33-0 to win the OFSAA Western Bowl title late Monday. Free Press sports reporter, Ryan Pyette, began his recent article with the subtitle, THE SOUTH FOOTBALL PROGRAM’S ROAR IS OFFICIALLY RESTORED”. In it he quotes head coach Mike Stenning’s comments on the win: “it was an indicator of how we played all season… We proved we belonged there… among the best in the province”. Coach Stenning also thanked Western’s football team for loaning them their sideline coats. Much of the 4th quarter was played in flurries and a cold wind, and the coats helped keep “the kids warm on the sideline”.
The SCAA adds their congratulations to a well deserved team victory!
