On Wednesday October 12, our grade 8’s participated in the annual flag football tournament at Mateway. They played well, but unfortunately couldn’t compete with the other schools.
The Jags started off their day playing against Eganville District Public School (EDPS). They got off to a very slow start, and were not prepared for the strong running offence. In their second game, they played against the eventual winning team, RCIS. The Jags started to figure things out in the second half of this game, but it wasn’t enough in the end. The final game of the round robin was against McNab. This was a close contest, with all the young Jags getting some quality playing time.
The Jags then played a crossover game against the 1st place St. Joseph’s Arnprior squad. In this ‘win or go back to school’ game – the Jags brought their best effort of the day. It was a close battle until the last whistle, with the Jags ultimately being defeated by a single touchdown. “The effort level in the second half of the McNab game, along with the full 30 minutes against St. Joes (Arnprior) – was amazing. It would have been a different story if we had that all day! Overall, it was a fun day – the kids had a blast!”
