The 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.

The 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 win.

Wide receiver Alex Lawrie scored the first touchdown on a pass from starting quarterback Pascal Roy-Lepensée.

The second touchdown was also scored through the air on a pass to Quinn Nadon-Stencill early in the second half.

The 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.

Any 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.

The 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.

Following 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.

"I 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."
