Our Blackville Senior Boys are heading to Provincials on Saturday, November 4 in Tobique Valley. The Eagles face off against Rothesay Netherwood School.

The pace is set for a game that will showcase an abundance of talent. The Provincial games separate the teams who have the ability to win from the teams who leave it all out on the field digging deep down inside of them to find the drive to come up clutch.

The Blackville Community is hoping that our Eagles will come home with no regrets, playing their hearts out on that field.  No matter the outcome of this weekend, the community is extremely proud of the Boys' historic season and all that they have achieved.

Senior Boys Soccer Team
We caught up with the four Senior players, to find out their thoughts on going into the most important soccer game of the season.

Senior Striker Avery Brennan
"I think it's great to be heading to Provincials in my grad year.  I am going to try and snipe a couple genos this weekend.  We definitely have the ability to win; it's whether we want to or not."

Senior Striker Aaron Walls
"It's pretty good to be heading to Provincials in my grade 12 year.  I hope we have a successful weekend and bring home the banner; that's all I've got to say #ForTheBoys."

Senior Fullback Daniel Richard
"We are finally where we've wanted to get to all season. After losing in the Provincial semis last year, we were all determined to get back and win it this year. We still have two games between us and another banner, but we are so close we can taste it. I am eager to try and win my second soccer banner, after winning the first one you're even hungrier for another. Going to Provincials this season means that the other seniors and I are heading back for our fourth straight season. I know we have what it takes to win if we play our game, now only the games will tell."

Senior Midfielder Jesse Frenette
"Heading to provincials again this year is a great honour for me; being able to say we consistently remained a top 4 team for my high school career is something I hoped for and worked towards.  This years team feels like a championship team and I have high hopes going into provincials.  The team is more than capable of going all the way this year, and I know for sure if we play our game and work hard we will get the results we hope for."

Congratulations to our Senior Boys on a fantastic season, showcasing the most heart our school has seen in years.  The community of Blackville is supporting our Eagles all the way.  Play your heart out, boys; 70 Minutes for the rest of their lives.
