(WINDSOR, ON) – In the most competitive match-up this season, the AKO Fratmen pushed past the London Beefeaters on Saturday by a score of 26-16, at Lajeunesse Field. The win propels the Fratmen into the finals of the Ontario Football Conference as they host the Ottawa Sooners on November 1.
The game was reminiscent from the semi-final from last year when the Fratmen disposed of London 30-17.
After a scoreless 1st Quarter, both teams got on the sheet in the 2nd with Windsor holding the decided edge at 17-2. The Fratment then added 9 more points after half time and seemed to be in control heading into the final frame.
London then applied the pressure in the 4th, scoring two touchdowns and making the score respectable. But, the visitors could get any closer before the whistle and AKO emerged victorious for the 8th time this season.
As London returned home, Fratmen head coach Mike Lachance started to plan for the Sooners. In their only previous meeting this year, on August 29, Windsor skated to a 44-9 win on the road at Carleton University.
The Fratmen are the clear favourites, heading into the finals, to three-peat as OFC champions.
