HSSAA SENIOR CHAMPIONSHIP
NELSON - 28
IROQUOIS RIDGE - 27
In a game for the ages, the SR Lords capped off a crazy last 5 minutes stopping a 2-Pt Conversion attempt in Overtime to secure their 25th Halton Title in Program History. DL Abdul Abdelaziz made the game winning stop after a blocked convert was called back due to a penalty.
Nelson battled back in the final minute to tie the game and send it to Overtime after a fantastic drive led by Quarterback Zach Islip. Many big plays helped get Nelson back into the game but perhaps none bigger than James Kerr turning the tide in the 3rd Quarter with a 100yard touchdown run. Jack Dyer would add two majors on short touchdown runs to cap off the other scoring drives.
Fantastic weather and an oustanding crowd made for a very memorable Halton Final.
The GAMETIME SOCIAL PLAYER OF THE GAME was Abdul Abdelaziz who had a monster game on the defensive line.
Up Next the Lords await the results of the HWCAA Championship (Hamilton Catholic) on Friday and will host the runner-up next Wednesday at Nelson Stadium. Kickoff time has not yet been set.
