Playoff spot secured

OFC: Jr. Argos secure playoff spot

The Toronto Jr. Argonauts have officially secure second place with a win over the Clarington Knights, 35-7. Even though it was a home game, the Knights were only able to play with a 20 man roster, giving them a severe disadvantage from the start.

“We were very impressed with how much heart and toughness Clarington played despite only having 20 players,” Says Jr. Argo head coach Carlo Onorati.

The Jr. Argos now boast a 6-1 record with one game remaining. For those who followed the club last year, the Jr. Argos were only able to tally one win during the entire season. “We are very proud of the turnaround,” Says Onorati. “It is never easy to go from 1-7 to 6-1 (in one year), I would attribute all of that to the effort put in by our players this year.”

Against the Knights, Jr. Argo standouts included wide receiver Shareef Johnson and Treyion Charles.

This Sunday the Jr. Argos will take on the Guelph Bears in their final home game of the season. “We are expecting a tough battle to end the season against Guelph,” Says Onorati. Guelph currently sites in fourth place in the Doug Dittmer conference, and will be looking for a win to secure a playoff spot as well.

The game will be at 5:00PM at St. Michael’s College Field.
