Saltus Excels At Canadian Football Tournament

October 19, 2016

The boy’s football team at Saltus Grammar School have returned from Canada victorious after winning the Plate final in a major schools’ tournament.

It was the best standing Saltus has achieved in the Canadian Accredited Independent Schools annual tournament, after taking part since 2012.

Their top scorer was Tyquann Perinchief, aged 17, who netted an incredible 14 goals in just six games – including five in one match.

Darrin Lewis, the Athletic Director at Saltus, said: “This is the best position we have finished since participating in the CAIS Senior Boys’ Football Tournament and the coaches and boys must be commended.

“Playing six games in three days is a grueling tournament in which character and determination is considerably challenged. The CAIS tournament is a great experience both on and off the field which will be remembered by the boys for years to come.”

The tournament was played at Trinity College School, in Port Hope, Ontario, and involved 20 schools.
