The St. Matthew High School varsity boys football team captured their first ever provincial bowl crown after downing the Matthew Power – St. Joseph's Trojans 28-7 to win the OFSAA Metro Bowl. Kian Williams was the MVP of the day, scoring 3 touchdowns on offense and grabbing 3 of the Tigers' 5 interceptions. The Tigers overcame a rough start after a lost fumble on their opening drive and a pair of costly penalties led to the Trojans taking an early 7-0 lead. Those would be the only points the Trojans would score.
The Tigers dominated the rest of the game, holding the Trojans to just 34 yards of total offence and forcing 7 turnovers. The final score would have been much more lopsided if not for the Tigers having 6 turnovers themselves.
Thanks to St. Matthew, the Redblacks aren't the only football champs in the city. Congratulations to St. Matthew and GO TIGERS!
