WATERLOO REGION (November 8, 2019) – On Wednesday night at Warrior Stadium in Waterloo, the St. David’s Celtics regained their District 8 title in a 35-7 win over the underdog Saints.
The Saint’s started their season 0-4 but reeled of an impressive three wins in a row to set themselves up to contend for the title.
