St. Peter Knights ended the regular season with another
win on Wednesday, but they'll need to win two more games
if they hope to be crowned city champs.
Knights scored on the first series of the game against
the Sir Wilfrid Laurier Lancers and then added two more
TDs in the second half on their way to a workmanlike 21-7
receiver Alex Lawrie scored the first touchdown on a pass
from starting quarterback Pascal Roy-Lepensée.
second touchdown was also scored through the air on a
pass to Quinn Nadon-Stencill early in the second half.
Lancers eventually got on the scoreboard on the final
play of the third quarter when quarterback Kurleigh Gittens
found Javontae Nelson downfield for a 30 yard touchdown
to narrow the deficit to 14-7.
hope of a comeback was quickly dashed, however, when the
Knights responded with a 55-yard drive culminating in
another touchdown by Nadon-Stencill to make the final
score 21-0 in favour of St. Pete's.
two teams must now prepare for the semi-final playoffs
which will take place next Tuesday. Sir Wilfrid Laurier
will travel to St. Patrick High School to take on the
second place Irish and S. Peter will host Mother Teresa.
Wednesday's win Knights head coach Jim Mick said he was
confident his team won't be looking ahead to a possible
championship berth when they take on the Titans.
don't think we're good enough to be looking ahead. If
we do then we're going to be in for a rude awakening,"
said Mick. "The playoffs are the start of a new season
and you have to win to advance. Football is a great game,
but it's a cruel sport. You lose and you're out so we
better be on our game."
