The Westdale Warriors took advantage of two first quarter turnovers en route to a 13-6 victory over the Sir Allan MacNab Lions in the Hamilton Public high school Division 1 junior football final at Mohawk Sports Park on Friday.

With the win the Warriors capped an unbeaten season and captured their third straight championship.

Westdale scored their first major early in the quarter.

The Lions’ ball-carrier was stripped around the MacNab 15-yardline and the Warriors ran it into the end zone for the touchdown.

A two point convert attempt was no good.

The Warriors led 6-0.

Westdale got the ball back moments later when MacNab quarterback Derek Baddley’s pass was tipped and intercepted by defensive back Roland Simmons around midfield.

Warriors’ quarterback Zeke Margaritis used a mix of pass and run plays to move the ball to the MacNab three-yard line before running back Spencer McKechnie crashed through the middle of the line for the TD.

The single point convert was good and it was 13-0 for Westdale.

MacNab’s defence stiffened in the second quarter and with about three minutes to play in the half the offence put together an impressive drive that moved from the Lions’ 28 to the Westdale nine-yard line.

It was there the Warriors defence held and the Lions, following an incomplete pass, turned the ball over on downs at the Westdale 18.

With less than two minutes to play in the half the dark clouds that had been looming all game opened and a deluge of rain came down sending everyone scurrying for cover.

The storm delayed the game for about an hour and MacNab scored an unconverted touchdown in the fourth quarter.
