There was no Bluewater Athletic Association title, but there could still be a CWOSSA championship out there for the Kincardine District Secondary School boys soccer team.

The Knights were eliminated from the BAA playoffs last Tuesday morning in Thornbury in a semi-final game against Owen Sound Collegiate.

Things did not start well for KDSS. Sloppy play allowed OSDSS to take control with a two-goal lead in the first half. The Knights battled back to tie things up at 2-2, but OSDSS scored in overtime to eliminate Kincardine and advance to the league final.

Bobbie Ultee scored twice for Owen Sound. Nuno Mesias had the overtime winner.

In the other semi-final game, the St. Mary's High School Mustangs defeated Walkerton District Community School 4-1 to set up an all-Owen Sound BAA final.

The Mustangs edged out OSDSS 1-0 to claim the 2017 BAA championship.

As mentioned, the Knights still have a chance for glory at tomorrow's CWOSSA tournament in Waterloo. Hosted by Woodland Christian High School, the tournament will be played at RIM Park.

KDSS will go right to a CWOSSA semi-final game at 10 a.m. The CWOSSA final will be played at 2 p.m.

In the BAA girls soccer championship game, St. Mary's hammered the Grey Highlands Secondary School Lions 7-0 to give St. Mary's a double-gold soccer season.
