Kingston, ON – The Jr Gaels, Junior Varsity football team will be hosting the Ontario Provincial Football League (OPFL) East Division Conference Finals after defeating the Stampeders on Sunday in Burlington.

“A touchdown by Gabe Burke-Burfoot, a field goal by Michael Dora and another huge game by the defence, including an interception by Talen Sherbert with just 30 seconds to go clenched the victory for the junior varsity team,” said Junior Gaels Football president Alexandra Reyes-Walsh.

The Junior Varsity team held the lead for the entire game. The 13-10 win gives the team home-field advantage for the eastern final. The game kicks off at 3 p.m., Saturday, July 27 at Richardson Stadium against the Durham Dolphins.

The winner of the east division will travel to London, Ontario on August 3 to face the OPFL west division winner for the Provincial title.

Despite a well-fought game on Saturday, the season came to an abrupt end for the Senior Varsity team following a 14-7 loss to the Ottawa Sooners.
