Auburn defeated Sackville high 40-7 last Thursday evening.

Cole Harbour Cavaliers (0), Horton Griffins (35 )

Central Kings Gators (22), NKEC Titans (0)
What a start to the season. The Gators beat the Titans 22-0 on Sunday.

J.L. Ilsley Judges (36), Prince Andrew Panthers (15)
The JL Ilsley Judges opened their regular season with a win against Prince Andrew, 36-15. Quarterback Brenden Cleveland threw for 200 yards to go along with 4 touchdowns and 1 rushing touchdown.

In the Eastlink TV game of the week, the Royals squeaked one out over the Avon View 14-12. Noting the Avalanche are in a re-build year as they lost a number of veterans to graduation, they will have to break those rookies in fast if they are to stay ahead of the game.
