Sydenham advances in EOSSAA football playoffs

November 8, 2014

Sydenham Golden Eagles built an impressive early lead in their football game Friday afternoon, and it turned out that they needed every bit of it.

On a cold, grey afternoon on the shores of Sydenham Lake, the Golden Eagles emerged from their Eastern Ontario Secondary Schools Athletic Association senior AA semifinal with a 31-28 victory over the Brockville Red Rams.

The win sends Sydenham into next week’s EOSSAA championship game against the Upper Ottawa Valley champion, at a time and place to be determined.

By early in the second quarter of Friday’s game, Sydenham led 21-0 and the home side was up 24-6 at halftime. Brockville wasn’t finished however, scoring on three straight possessions in the fourth quarter—successfully recovering two short kickoffs in the process—to close the gap to just three points.

Sydenham was able to run out the clock, however, to secure its eighth victory, without defeat, this season.
