A sea of red, white, blue, and gold covered St. Brother Andre’s campus on Friday, the hosts of the annual Director’s Cup with the St. Maximilian Kolbe Mustangs.
A longstanding annual tradition, over one thousand staff and students filled the stands for the rivalry matchup between the varsity football squads of the Markham and Aurora schools.
Heading into the matchup as the reigning champions, the Mustangs took an early 13 – 0 lead with a touchdown and a pair of field goals by halftime.
Yet the home team came roaring back in the back end, taking a 14 – 13 lead that would hold until the final buzzer,
Former St. Max principal and current St. Brother Andre principal Melton Moyo, who has exchanged his Mustangs blue and gold for the Cardinals red and white, said it was “a pleasure” hosting this year’s cup.
“In the game of football, there has to be a winner and this time it was SBA,” said Moyo. “The Mustangs gave us a scare but the Cardinals believed!”
On a day of comradery and sportsmanship, St. Max principal Peter Parente congratulated the Cardinals on taking back the trophy.
“We’re a little stung by the loss but we know we’ll bounce back. Must say, (St. Brother Andre) were great hosts but we’re confident we’ll take the cup back next year!”
With only two games left in the YRAA regular season, the Mustangs carry a 1 – 1 record after taking down Villanova College 33 – 1 early in October.
They visit next with Bill Crothers SS on Oct. 25, before wrapping up the season at home on Nov. 1 against King City SS.
