The St. Peter Knights got a trip to Kingston out of their national capital senior football title, but they won’t get to complete their trip down Hwy. 401 for an OFSAA bowl game after falling 46-20 to Frontenac Secondary Schools on Saturday.
“The score not really indicative of the game itself,” St. Peter coach Jim Mick says by e-mail, noting his team gave up several big plays, including a fumble in the end zone.
The Knights were down by 12 and had the ball with the wind at their back to start the fourth quarter, but could not cut into Frontenac’s league in the OFSAA semi-final, which they’ve lost two years in a row.
“Although we made some plays of our own, they were crisper than us,” notes Mick, calling the game a “team loss.” “They were a much older team than us, but most of our starters were Grade 11 students, so this will bode well for next year.
“Sometimes you have to lose in order to learn how to win.”
St. Peter won its fourth consecutive senior city championship last weekend at Minto Field to complete an undefeated season.
