Notes:
League operated with nine teams and every team lost at least one game.  Two other teams: Henry Street and Bowmanville played exhibition schedules.  These two schools would meet for the COSSA Senior Football Association title in a two game total point playoff.  Bowmanville who had captured this title the previous two years won the first game 22-0.  We have been unable to find the result for the second game.
Eastdale finished first, Pickering second, Central third and O'Neill fourth.
Pickering opened the season with wins over Uxbridge, Anderson and Donevan.
In the victory over Donevan, Terry Clements delivered five touchdown passes.  Scoring TD's for Pickering were: Brian Berridge (3), Danny Stokes, Bill Karstulovich and Bart Robinson.  Other Trojan team members include: Paul Armstrong, Tom Newman, Bob Faulkner, Floyd Williams, Dave Lickley, Dave Morrissey, Gerry Armstrong, Joe Giroux, Tom Ralphs, Ralph Stea, Ralph Jarcow and Rolf Renz.  Coaches were Mr. Hiron and Mr. Fairburn.
Henry Street won the Mayor's Trophy.  Not sure if this was Junior or Senior level.  This was the third year of competition for the Mayors Trophy with Henry Street also winning the first while Anderson captured the second.
Dunbarton was coached by Ed Grant, Chuck Ziestsma and Rod Vinter.  Roster players included: Sandy Smith, Rick Strong and Fred Temush.
Pickering coaches were Mr. Hiron and Mr. Fairburn.

Notes:
The Pickeirng Junior team suffered the loss of a team member John Egeroff, who collapsed and died while walking off the field after the third quarter of a football game on September 23rd against Anderson.  A subsequent autopsy determined the cause of death to be a congenital heart defect which could only have been detected by open heart surgery.  John was a fullback for the team and he had experience chest pains while playing hockey however a series of tests at the Hospital for Sick Kids had failed to uncover anything out of the ordinary so he was pronounced completely fit.  Pickering was coached by Mr. Jackson and Mr. Watts.
Eastdale went undefeated for the entire season.
Dunbarton was coached by John Gutsell and Mark Jeffries.  Roster players included: Tom Turner, Joe Kowal and Rudy Vendersluis.
