GUELPH—These are glory times for the Assumption Sr. Lions who recently celebrated a CWOSSA championship.
In what has been a historic season to remember Assumption, who are ranked 34th in Canada, got a huge performance from Trevor Mcdonald who on Tuesday, November 26th at University of Guelph’s Alumni Stadium had a three -touchdown performance in what was a 35-17 championship win against St. David Catholic Secondary School.
“What we did that led us to victory was preparation every day and giving 100% in practice,” Mcdonald said. “It felt good to know Assumption represents CWOSSA. It feels good to know that we’re back on top. It was an exciting feeling because it was my first time winning.”
Assumption, after defeating B.C.I. (Brantford Collegiate Institute) in becoming the senior football Brant County champs continued their impressive run by pulling off a CWOSSA quarter finals win against J.F. Ross before following it up with a dramatic come from behind semi-final victory against the three time CWOSSA winners Jacob Hespeler followed by their emotional championship win.
The next step for Assumption is the ultimate prize which is OFSAA which will be taking place on Tuesday, November 26th at McMaster University’s Ron Joyce Stadium against Nelson High School with kickoff slated for 1 p.m.
“I knew from the opening kick off it was going to be a good game,” Lions Ethan Jamieson said. “Trevor taking the opening kickoff to the house. Also we didn’t play are best game of the year. We were a bit undisciplined for a bit and once we start playing the way we were all season, that’s when we started taking over the game.” Jamieson went on to add, “I thought (beginning of the year) we were going to win CWOSSA and we worked hard all camp and all year and this was the goal from day one was to bring back the CWOSSA championship back to the school.”
Now the objective is to include an OFSSA to their accomplishments.
