Warriors hang on for sixth city title in a row

News Nov 22, 2006 Flamborough Review

It wasn't their best game of the season, but the Waterdown District High School Warriors got the job done at Ivor Wynne Stadium last week.

Coming off another unbeaten season, the Warriors downed the Glendale Bears 21-14 to snag their sixth consecutive HWIAC championship.

"They didn't play as well as they could have," noted head coach Larry Timms of the squad's performance, which kept them in the unusual position of having to come from behind for the win right until the end of the fourth quarter.

Glendale opened things up with a touchdown in the first quarter, and held the Warriors scoreless right up until halftime. But Waterdown roared back in the second half, capitalizing on a couple of bad breaks for Glendale. But two Warrior touchdowns later, the Bears pulled off a beautiful pass to tie things up at 14. In the final moments of the game, Justin Partridge scored the clincher, on a handoff from Warriors quarterback Dave Harrison,

The HWIAC final was the closest the Warriors came to defeat this year. The Warriors finished their five-week regular play with 10 (out of a possible 10) points, beating Barton 23-8, Glendale 27-10, MacNab 55-16, Ancaster 21-0 and Westdale 17-48.

With the city trophy under their belt, Waterdown will face off against Welland Notre Dame at 1 p.m. in Port Colborne today (November 18) for the SOSSA title, in an effort to secure a berth at the provincial playdowns. The Golden Horseshoe Bowl will take place at the end of the month.
