An improbable comeback win & Beefs repeat

The London Beefeaters will make their first ever appearance in the Canadian Bowl after a thrilling come from behind victory on Saturday night, beating the St. Clair Fratmen 15-14 in a bizarre finish.

With the score 14-0 in the favour of the Fratmen with 1:59 to go in the game, they lined up to punt from their own 34-yard line, but a bad snap sent the ball over the head of kicker Jake Holloway and rolled all the way to the end zone.  Holloway tried to pick it up and couldn’t before Nick Samis pounced on the loose ball for a touchdown.

A quick two and out and the Fratmen punted the ball back to the Beefeaters with 1:06 to go.  Quarterback Clarke McCallum started the drive at the Fratmen 53-yard line and after a 12-yard completion, he found Spencer Foster wide open in the middle of the field for a catch and run touchdown to tie the game.

On the ensuing kick-off the now stunned Fratmen would fumble the return giving the ball right back to the Beefeaters offence on the 18-yard line with 45 seconds left.  

After winding the clock down kicker Leo Centeno came on the field with two seconds remaining and punted the ball through the back of the end zone for a rouge and the improbable comeback win for the Ontario Conference title.

The Beefeaters will now play in and host their first ever Canadian Bowl on December 4th when they welcome the Langley Rams to town.  It’ll be the first ever match-up between these two teams.
