CONGRATULATIONS GO OUT TO BEN CROSS, KADEN JESPERSEN AND MITCH WEILER
Last night these 3 OV Lions players were recognized by The City of Cambridge for being members of our Team Ontario All star team. Team Ontario won The Canada Cup this past July with each of these 3 playing for their team. 2 of the 3 award recipients were in attendance, with the Mayor, to receive their award.
In the inset picture is Ben Cross, Kaden Jespersen and Mayor Doug Craig. Unfortunately, Mitch Weiler was unable to attend.
Way to go gentlemen. You have made all of the Cambridge Lions Proud!
Harry Beeksma reffed Cambridge Football for many years. He loved to do it and he loved to watch the little kids play. Harry passed away last year after a tough battle with Cancer, but never gave up his love for the game.
Harry's fellow referees and friends wish to set up a bursary in his name. Cambridge Minor Football couldn't be happier to participate and some fortunate Cambridge tke player will be the recipient of the generosity. The referees will put a list together of young Tykes who show great sportsmanship and review that list with CMFA Board members. One player will be chosen and awarded with his or hers Fall fees paid for, the following season.
We accept this generosity in Harry's name and Thank our Local referees association, including Chris Venter, Paul Barrett and Larry Clark for putting this together.
For more on this story, it was carried in The Record and The Times.
Coaches and Managers for Tyke white got their players all suited up in Pink. The boys were thrilled to "look and play like the pros". All in good fun and to raise awareness of Breast Cancer for the month of October. The players will continue to wear their pink through all their games in October. Great Job boys. You are all doing a fabulous job showing community support and representing Cambridge Football with Lion Pride!
CONGRATULATIONS TO COACH PHIL EDWORTHY AND HIS SENIOR VARSITY OMFL PLAYERS1
Great job by all. If a program "is only as strong as the Varsity Players it produces" then we are in fine shape, here in Cambridge! With our OM team winning the OMFL Championship and our Senior OVFL team heading to the Western final. We should all be proud of these fine athletes that we have all helped and coached along the way.
The OM team won35-15, handily defeating the Orangeville Outlaws. In the process, they went 10-0 and as any football player can attest, going undefeated is a pretty special accomplishment. Congratulations to all members of this great team.
Meanwhile our OVFL Senior team is in action this Sunday night (8 pm), in the Western Final, against the Essex Ravens at the University of Windsor. Good Luck to the Varsity Lions! Make us al proud!
