To continue the saga....for yesterday's junior tilt it was a day of gale force winds and biblical rain....fitting given the two Catholic schools competing...you lads remember the Thanksgiving game in the 'Prior in 77? 78?......this time not quite snowing......and we didn't get stuck at Fay Thom's farm later in the night....
Regi opens up passing....which is promptly picked....we march about 30 yds for the first score and never looked back.....pound it up the middle, off tackle, around the end....whatever you like.
Three different backs...three touchdowns...a 27yd field goal....and by third quarter we're up 25-0.
Then the weather really got bad......some lightning and the rains really picked up.
Both teams and all the fans head into the school while they sort out what to do.
Regi wants to keep playing as I think the coach is determined to teach the lesson of finish what you start....and it gives them a chance to roll everyone into their last game.
The weather lets up and they return to the quagmire.....JJ comes in to direct the offence with a posse of other grade 9s and handles the ball well given the conditions.
We finish it off 25-0 and head to Queen's this Saturday to defend the City Championship againts the mouthy bastards....and that's the mothers.....from Frontenac.
So if you're passing through Kingston Saturday you can swing by Richardson Stadium at 11 for the juniors or 1 for the seniors where I'll guarantee you'll see quite a spectacle......
......ya I'll be the one with my shirt off and "GO CRUSADERS GO!" painted on my belly.
For the those of you who may be in K-Town this weekend, I will pay money for a picture of the aforementioned belly ;-)
