#2 London Beefeaters @ #1 St. Clair Fratmen – Saturday November 20, 7:00pm – Acumen Stadium | WATCH HERE
For the second straight season the Fratmen will host the Beefeaters in the Ontario Conference championship game with plenty on the line. The winner will host the 2021 Canadian Bowl on December 4th.
In 2019 the Beefeaters upset the Fratmen in Windsor 28-20 to win the Conference and the right to host the CJFL National Semi-Final game. This victory is the lone playoff win for the Beefeaters over the Fratmen in team history. They have met seven previous times with the Fratmen dominating winning six of them and have outscored the Beefeaters 222-111.
This will be the third time in Conference history that these two have met; the Beefeaters winning in 2019 while the Fratmen won their first match-up 33-30 in 1990. That was the only time the Beefeaters actually hosted the Fratmen in the post-season.
During the regular season the Fratmen won both meetings by scores of 29-22 and 51-28 and have been unbeaten all season.
Both teams easily won their semi-final tilts as the Fratmen beat the Quinte Skyhawks 47-3 while the Beefeaters shutout the Hamilton Hurricanes 24-0.
As mentioned the winner on Saturday will host the 2021 Canadian Bowl and welcome either the Saskatoon Hilltops or Langley Rams who will play in the CJFL National Semi-Final game on Saturday afternoon.
