Carleton will have a junior football program in Ontario's top league playing on its campus this fall.
The indispensable Capital Region Football Blog notes the Ottawa Sooners have been accepted into the Ontario Football Conference. There is an event notification on Facebook for the Aug. 28 season opener vs. the Burlington Braves. The Sooners play at Ravens' Field on the Carleton campus. This is bound to increase speculation of Carleton reviving the football program it folded 10 years ago this March.
Each Ottawa daily has been on this story from the beginning, so it's fair to keep this short and let them give it its due. The Sooners had been in the Quebec Junior Football League for the past several seasons (it has two other teams in the Ottawa region). This will be good for football in Ottawa, and if it leads to having two CIS teams in the nation's capital again, so much the better.
(And if Carleton comes back, does the OUA run with 11 teams, or does someone leave?)
