It’s a big day for football in these areas, as is the Bluewater Championship football game today.
The Owen Sound game will be played at Victoria Park as the undefeated St Mary’s Mustangs host the Owen Sound District Wolves.
The Mustangs went 3 & 0 in the regular season but needed a late single from Tanner Hamill to take out Gray Highlands in the semifinals.
Wolves lost only St Mary’s and they won the championship by beating the Saugeen District Royals 20-13.
It’s a pretty big weekend in the Ontario Hockey League for the Owen Sound Attack as they visit Kitchener tonight and host Guelph tomorrow.
The Attack comes off an extremely comprehensive 4-1 victory over the Rangers in a game Owen Sound largely controlled.
It has been suggested that Saturday’s victory marked a turning point for Attack, which could be true, and I hope it is. I really like what I saw at the start of the year.
But in this unique OHL season, turning any corner means finding yourself in a tougher neighborhood.
Usually on Halloween every year, a team dug a hole too deep to recover or desperately emerged from it.
At this point in this season, in the 10-team Western Conference, Owen Sound is vying for a Top 4 position …… but barely in a playoff spot as we hit mid-November.
Have a good week-end.
