Summer Varsity Football

The Cambridge Lions are now 5-2 this season with a tough 42-27 loss to the undefeated Niagara Spears two weeks ago, but then an impressive 43-6 win over the Sault Ste Marie Sabercats Saturday night. This week, the Lions host the Hamilton Ironmen Friday night at 8pm.

The Twin City Predators had a huge 78-0 win over the Oakville Titans two weeks ago and this weekend their game against the Brantford Bisons Friday evening was cancelled due to thunder and lightning in the area.
