Banner Week for Sports at DSBN
What a week!
Students at A.N. Myer Secondary in Niagara Falls celebrated their school’s first-ever Metrobowl win in Toronto, while the Eden Flyers continued their unparalleled streak of eight straight OFSAA volleyball championships.
Last Wednesday, the A.N. Myer Marauders junior boys football team put their perfect season on the line as they took to the field in Toronto to face off against Oshawa’s Monsignor Paul Dwyer in the Metrobowl Championship game.
The Marauders struck once in the first quarter for a 7-0 lead, and had built an insurmountable 35-14 lead by half-time. Myer would go on to win the game by a final score of 45-21, cementing the school’s undefeated season and first-ever Metrobowl championship.
Head coach Jamie French credited the outstanding effort from the students and his fellow coaches for preparing them for Wednesday’s success. “From day one, the students were ready to compete. They never lost focus and they definitely deserve to enjoy their success.”
Eight is Great
For the eighth year in a row, the Eden Flyers are soaring above the competition. Over the November 23 weekend, the St. Catharines school won its eighth consecutive OFSAA boys AA volleyball title.
Head Coach Albino Pereira said the team focused on continuous improvement and winning under pressure as they prepared to defend the streak of seven straight championships.
Eden won the gold medal in Thunder Bay by defeating St. Michael’s Stratford in the finals.
Pereira suspects the team will have an excellent chance of winning a ninth straight title, as the Flyers are a young team and he expects the majority of players to be back next year.
