This Saturday promises to be the most exciting day of the year for SMAA Football as all 12 teams are taking part in semi-final games to earning the right to compete for the championship on November 5.  All six games are being played at Norm Perry Park, commencing at 9 am and continuing on until 3 pm.

The Atoms (aged 7-9) take the field in the opener.  In this division, two games are played at once between the 50 yard line and the goal line.  This results in non stop excitement for the fans in the stands.  One semi pits the undefeated Planet Stitch Inferno against the Rob Simrak Magic Realty Shock Wave.  In their last meeting the Inferno prevailed 22-18.  The Inferno are led by the hard running of Hudson Laur, Justin Cain and Ethan Kerby.  Camden Cormier leads the Shock Wave attack.  The other contest pits the rapidly improving Purdy Fisheries Razor Claws against the Student Association of Lambton College Iron Hides.  Recently Isaac Kidd has been a one man wrecking crew for the Razor Claws.  The Iron Hides were quick off the mark this year, but an injury to the dangerous Avery Smiley slowed their progress this year.  Smiley is now back and a strong game by this talented player and strong running by Cyrus Sinapole could result in a mild upset.

The PeeWees (aged 10 and 11) are up next with the first game pitting the rapidly improving Royal Canadian Legion Branch 62 Fury coached by Craig Davies against the first place Lanxess Storm.  The underdog Fury boast the fleet afoot Cole Morrison, the hard running of Kody Lyon and the recently discovered bruising fullback, Jacob Williams.  The Storm have many weapons.  Quarterback Hunter Hendrie's favourite target is receiver Kurtis Noszenko and the talented Matthew Paquette is a threat to take it to the house every time he carries the ball.  The second PeeWee game features the Student Association of Lambton College Force pitted against the Purdy Fisheries Avengers. Speedy Kurtis Hill and powerful Travis Conrad are the players to watch for the Force while first year player Gabe Barnes is a standout player on the Avengers. 

The day wraps up with the Bantams (aged 12, 13) taking the field.  The first place Mechanical Contractor's Association Toros coached by Mr. Wing T Jamie Dekelver whose plays are executed with surgical precision face the Sylvan Learning Centre Bears.  The Toros are quarterbacked by Jamie Campbell with hard running Ricky Lapish and Myles McLean being the major players in their offensive attack.  The Bears are quarterbacked by Nick Iacobelli who frequently hands the ball to Eric DeSena.  Iacobelli is also a talented passer who can move the ball through the air when his O line affords him the time.  In their second meeting of the year, the Bears led 8-0 lead at the half.  Two touchdowns for the Toros in the second half resulted in a come from behing 12-8 victory for the team in red. The finale of the day sees the Sarnia Police Association Tiger Sharks with their trick play offence tangle with the Mammoet Crane Incorporated Mammoths.  Cobe Cox, Keyshaun Jordan and Cameron Shaw are the running backs for the Sharks and Nick Vail is the major player on the offensive side of the ball for the Mammoths.  The last time these two teams tangled the Tiger Sharks were victorious 34-24 in a hard hitting affair.

Admission is free and all football fans are encouraged to come out and watch the young stars of tomorrow in exciting gridiron action.
