Dave MacGowan passed away

We are sorry to hear the passing of Dave MacGowan. He was a member of the league starting back in 1977 until 1995.

He worked to bring the Touch Bowl (The Canadian Touch Football Championship) to Saint John in 1990 & 1993. We was a key contributor of the Trojans up to his retirement from the league in 95′.

He was also the League Statistician and we were able to get copies of the stats 1988 to 1995 from him in 2016.

In 1995 as part of the 20 year anniversary of the league, he wrote two pages as a reflection titled: TOUCH FOOTBALL – 20 Years Later by Dave MacGowan. Here are the closing remarks:

As you can tell, I have accumulated a lot of great memories during the past 19 years. To each of you who have been apart of making those memories, I thank you. And to those players who are new to the league, I thank you for being a part of tomorrow’s memories. I sincerely hope that this game can provide you with as much satisfaction as it has given me.

2019 “A” Champions – VOLUNTEERS

Congrats to the 2019 SJMTFL “A” Champions:

Volunteers

The Volunteers won 19-6 over the Rage for their 1st “A” Championship. The Volunteers join a unique group of teams that have placed 1st in the League and won the “A” Championship. Since 88′, only the Raiders multiple years of course but also the 93′ Oilers and the 89′ Three Mile. Fun Fact… the Volunteers have become the 1st team to ever win the Spring SNBTFL Championship and win the “A” Championship in the SJMTFL. Two other teams (Rage 2011 and Hawks 2014) have accomplished the feat however won the “B” SJMTFL Title.

2019 “A” and “B” Championships (Super Saturday)

The “A” and “B” finals (aka Super Saturday) are this upcoming Saturday Nov 2nd at the Allison Grounds Field.

“A” Final

2:00pmRage at Volunteers

The Volunteers, in their third season, have finished in 1st Place with a record of 10-2-0. During the Regular Season, the Volunteers won all three games against the Rage (40-14, 40-6 and 15-0).  However, the Rage are the defending “A” Champions after winning the 2018 A Championship 13-12 vs. the Volunteers!  This game is a fight for the Rage wanting to defend their title while the Volunteers want one!

“B” Final

11:00amAverage Joe’s at Bandits

The Bandits, in their fifth season, have won the “B” Championship before back in 2016.  The second year team, Average Joe’s, are going back to the “B” Championship looking for the title.  The only game between these two teams in 2019 was on opening day on Sept 12th where the Bandits won 34-7.  Any Given Super Saturday…a Championship Team will be made!  Who’s it going to be…

Good Luck to everyone!
