The Ontario Conference opened up this past weekend with a pair of games.

London Beefeaters 24
Hamilton Hurricanes 10

The defending Ontario Conference champion Beefeaters picked up right where they left off last season with a convincing 14 point win over the visiting Hurricanes.  

After the teams traded stalled drives the Beefeaters opened the scoring with an 88 yard pass and run from quarterback Clarke McCallum to veteran receiver Spencer Foster late in the first quarter.  McCallum also found Danny Byrne for a six yard touchdown reception as he completed 11 passes in total for 207 yards.

Defensively the Beefs were led by Jordan Fletcher who tied a team record for sacks in a game with four.  Codey McRoberts picked up a blocked kick and scampered 49 yards for a touchdown.  Linebacker Mo Kadri blocked a kick, recovered a fumble and picked off a pass.

The Hurricanes showed some rust finally getting into the end zone in the third quarter on a six yard pass play from quarterback Ethan Belbeck to Keyshaun Jordan, his only catch of the game.  Belbeck finished with 149 yards on 12 completions.

On Sunday the Beefeaters (1-0) will visit the newest CJFL franchise the Quinte Skyhawks who will play their first game ever while the Hurricanes (0-1) will play in their home opener when they welcome the GTA Grizzlies (0-1).

St. Clair Fratmen 63
GTA Grizzlies 1

The St. Clair era opened on Sunday with a bang as the new look Fratmen completely dismantled the Grizzlies as both teams opened their 2021 CJFL opener.

The Fratmen used a stifling defence and well balanced offensive attack to down the Grizzlies.  Their run game was outstanding led by Jacob Savoni and his 100 yards on 12 carries and three touchdowns. When they decided to throw quarterback Michael Beale in his first CJFL start completed 10 of 14 for 156 yards and four touchdowns.   He found both Cody Holmes and Jared Hayes-Williams each twice for majors.

The defence was simply a wall holding the Grizzlies to 21 net yards of total offence.   A combination of 15 players made at least one tackle.

Special teams also made a big play when Dante Lewis returned a kick-off 100 yards for a touchdown.

The Fratmen (1-0) have a bye this coming weekend while the Grizzlies (0-1) visit the Hamilton Hurricanes (0-1) on Sunday in a Hamilton-Toronto Labour Day Classic.
