EESS WON JUNIOR FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIP ON THURSDAY: (Contributed)
Aylmer – The East Elgin Junior Football team won the TVRAA South East Championship for the second year in a row defeating the St. Joseph Rams 35-20. The Eagles got off to a great start outscoring the visiting Rams 21-0 in the first quarter. The strong running game of Craig and Eddy Wiebe tallied touchdowns for the Eagles with Craig scoring twice and Eddy once. QB and kicker Trevor Stewart kicked the extra point for the three touchdowns. The Rams did not fold as they fought back and cut into the Eagles lead with two touchdowns. The Eagle offence roared right back as Justin Lasook caught a 25 yard pass from Stewart to extend the lead to 28-14. The Rams still would not give up and made the score 28-20 on another TD run. Eddy Wiebe responded with the Eagles fifth touchdown with a long run to make the final score 35-20 Eagles. Strong performances were made by Christian King, Kyle Booy, Cole Armstrong, Spencer Roloson, and Braydon Racz on the offensive line. Defensively, Cody Underhill had a key interception just as the Rams were looking to score before the first half expired. Craig Irvine, Brennan Boutilier, Kyle Booy and Christian King all had several tackles on defence. Congratulations to the Junior Eagle team as they completed a perfect season finishing 9-0.
“It is nice to see that you are advising us of the court convictions on a regular basis. Why are you not reporting all the names of all those convicted? Only one name is given. Perhaps we would like to know the others. Mr. Thiessen must feel quite alone. The public does have a right to know the names. After all convictions it is a matter of record. We have a problem with the Aylmer Express not mentioning names of charged persons and convicted persons. Please do not follow their example. (JF Davidson)
