Saints football stays perfect in battle with St. Mike’s

When two perfect seasons clash, one is bound to lose that moniker.
That was the case last Wednesday in the CISAA matchup between the 2 – 0 St. Andrew’s College Saints and the 2 – 0 St. Michael’s College Kerry Blues, longtime rivals in the independent school league.
It was quarterback Dylan Tabone’s day to shine, in what head coach Len Gurr called a “monster game”. Tabone’s 250 yards on the ground was highlighted by a 108-yard touchdown run, adding two more majors himself while going to the air to Lucas LaBrier for another pair.
Ian McLean and Adre Simmonds also added TDs of their own.
“Huge props also go to the offensive line,” said Gurr.“The big ‘war daddies’ Gabriel Wallace, Ethan Kalra, Matt Cronin, Alex Ross and Sam Ashton battled a physical and aggressive Kerry Blues’ front seven and took over the game in the second half.”
The Saints’ record had improved to 2 – 0 just three days prior in the annual Homecoming game, where big offensive games from both Simmonds and McLean came in handy in defeating Upper Canada College 21 – 12.
McLean’s two touchdowns and Simmonds’ 100+ all-purpose yards were paired handily with strong defensive efforts, led by an interception by Luke St. John in the second quarter that led to the first Saints touchdown.
While holding a record of 3 – 0 in the conference, the Saints are 5 – 0 in total on the season.
The CISAA season continues on Saturday as the Saints battle with the winless Trinity College School, a team SAC put up 53 points against in the first game of the year.
Playoffs begin in the first week of November.
