    Tough loss to ND Ajax last yr 1 of only 3 teams to defeat the ROPSSAA champs, it was a good game, tough and gritty.

    Yes indeed it was two truly outstanding teams.

    I was not surprised in the least by all that St. Roch went on to accomplish later in the season.

    I would love to see both these schools return to this season's tournament!

    Many thanks to Pickering H.S. for helping us out at the Maroon & Black Tournament. We now have our eight teams.

    This is now a tough field!
