A Tough Day, But a Successful Season No Less

 The London Minor Football Association season came to a conclusion Sunday afternoon at Citywide Sports Complex.  St. Thomas was well represented in the 2 of the 3 finals.  The St. Joes atom Hawks lost a heartbreaker to the undefeated Saunders Rams 36-34.  The game was a hard fought back and forth game with the last team with possession winning the game.  Congratulations to the tyke players, coaches and parents, you all showed class and sportsmanship all season. Following the tyke finals the St. Joes atom Hawks faced another undefeated Saunders Rams team.  The Hawks fought hard all game long but could not penetrate the tough Ram defence and the defence couldn’t totally shut down the high powered Ram offence.  At the end of the game the final score was 30-10 for the Saunders Rams.  The Hawk defence fought hard all day long and made the Rams pay for every yard that they got.  The “big nasty D” was led by Jack Ainsworth (10 tackles and 2 sacks), Craig Coleman (6 tackles), Duncan Matthews (6 tackles) and Kyle Elley (1 interception).  The Hawks were lead on offence by Hawk’s game MVP Drew Foster who had 81 yards rushing.   The offence was [...]

Local Football a Success

It has been awhile since I have written an article about our local football programs.  Since my last article a lot has happened on the local football scene.  I will try and get everyone up to speed with the events of the season. In St. Thomas and Elgin county high school football the season has come and gone with local teams having extraordinary seasons.  At the junior level the St.Joes Rams had an extraordinary season where they ran the table and went undefeated, finishing the season with a TVRAA Southeast Junior Football championship.  The Rams topped of a 7-0 perfect season by defeating the East Elgin Eagles 56-36 in the final.  At the senior level the East Elgin Eagles also completed and undefeated season (6-0) by defeating the Parkside Stampeders 21-6 in the TVRAA Southeast Senior football league.  The only blemish on East Elgin’s record was a defeat to CCH from London in a WOSSA challenge game Tuesday evening.  At the Varsity level Arthur Voaden finished 3-4 losing in the TVRAA southeast varsity semi finals to eventual champs CASS from Woodstock.  Also in the Varsity league Central Elgin finished 2-5 by losing to Ingersoll in the TVRAA southeast varsity semi [...]

First Week a Great Success

The 2010 LMFA and high school football season began regular season games last week.  There was plenty of excitement for all of the teams in St.Thomas. The season began Thursday on the field at Central Elgin with the CECI Titans defeating the AVSS Vikings in a tight defence dominated game 10-8.  Also on Thursday the East Elgin Eagles opened up their junior football season with a dominating performance against Huron Park Huskies with a score of 41-14.  On Friday the Parkside Stampeders invaded the home field of the St. Joes Rams for junior and senior football action under the lights in St. Joe’s annual fundraiser “Friday Night Lights”. The first game was a junior game that went right down to the wire with St. Joes kicking a single with less than a minute left in the game for an exciting 8-7 victory.  Following the juniors the seniors took to the field for what turned out to be a one-sided victory for the Stampeders 25-17. On Sunday the LMFA season kicked off at St. Joes with all three teams playing Banting and coming out victorious.  The Tykes started off the Hawks season with an impressive 38-0 performance.  The tykes are vastly [...]

Football Opening Week

This week marks the first week of the Thames Valley Region Athletic Association and London Minor football seasons.  The season kicks of Thursday with a tradition rivalry in St. Thomas with the Arthur Voaden Vikings traveling across town to play the Central Elgin Titans at 2pm in a varsity football game.  The Titans are looking to defend their 2009 Southeast Varsity championship.  This should be an interesting game as these two teams share a bitter rivalry that dates back a couple of decades.  The East Elgin Eagles start the defense of their 2009 Southeast Junior title with a game in Huron Park vs. the Huskies at 2pm Thursday.  Friday night the St. Joes Rams host the Parkside Stampeders in their annual Friday night lights game with the junior game at 6pm and the senior game at 8pm. The London Minor football season also begins this week with the St. Joes Hawks opening their seasons at St. Joes on Sunday vs. Banting.  The kickoff for the tyke game is at 10am, with the atoms at noon and the peewees beginning defense of their 2009 LMFA championship at 2pm. If you are a football fan there will be tons of great games [...]

Are You Ready For Some Football

Just a few weeks ago we celebrated Labour Day, most people associate the last long weekend with the end of summer and the beginning of the new school year.  With the subtle change in the weather others associate the cool weather with the upcoming hockey season, well I may be a little different I think of one thing and that is the beginning of pigskin season.  Most of us football fans are gearing up for the NFL, CFL , NCAA and CIS football seasons by dusting off our teams jerseys or playing fantasy football.  I would urge anyone that reads this to look even deeper into the football world and checkout football at its purest form.  From now till the sometime in November there is lots of local youth football, these young men and women play the game not for the love of money or fame but for the love of the sport. With the cool temperatures and the feel of autumn in the air I am brought back to my first football season back when I was in grade 9 at Arthur Voaden in the mid 80’s.  I can remember the first weeks of practice, all of the sweat, [...]
