The St. Matthew Tigers senior boys football team is heading back to the NCSSAA championship game after posting an impressive 28-0 win over the St. Peter Knights in the semi-finals on Tuesday.

It was the third straight time the Tigers have beaten their arch rivals this season and the fourth time in the past two years. In the four games they’ve faced each other, the Tigers have outscored the Knights 142-15. The streak includes three shutouts.

Playing in less than ideal conditions on Tuesday, the Tigers were able to jump out to a 13-0 halftime lead on touchdowns by Russell Agbor and Pantelis Livadiotakis-Fraser. The later was scored on an 11-yard pass from Jackson Laplante.

The Tigers would add to their lead in the third quarter on Agbor’s second touchdown of the game and a safety that was conceded by the Knights in order to avoid giving the Tigers possession inside the 10-yard line.

St. Matt’s would eventually score their fourth touchdown of the game late in the fourth quarter to make the final score 28-0.

With the win the Tigers will know face the St. Joseph Jaguars in next week’s champion-ship game at Carleton University. The final will be a rematch of last year’s title game which the Tigers won 20-13.

In their only meeting this season, St. Matt’s easily won 46-14.
