Spartans still perfect


SUMMERSIDE – The Summerside Spartans have repeated as Football P.E.I. Under-13 Flag League champions.

The Summerside Spartans are the two-time winners of the Football P.E.I. Under-13 Flag League. The Spartans recently won the 2015 provincial championship in Summerside. Members of the Spartans are, front row, from left: Thomas Rayner, Kolby MacDonald, Max Chisholm, Zach Blood and Armaan Singh. Second row: Connor Keough, Logan Rogers and Sean Matheson. Third row: Landon Gallant and Ethan Hackman. Fourth row: Jamie Matheson (coach) and John Turner (coach).

The Spartans recently defeated the Cornwall Timberwolves 33-6 in the league’s championship game at Eric Johnston Field to claim their second provincial title in as many years. The Spartans also haven’t lost a game in the two years the league has existed.

Second-year players Connor Keough, Armaan Singh and Max Chisholm led the Spartans. These three players began playing flag football at a young age, and even have two years of atom tackle under their belts.

“Even at such a young age, there is no substitute for the experience and leadership shown  from these players in the big games,” read a Football P.E.I. media release.
