Birmingham Seaholm quarterback Tommy Sheppard breaks through the line in a recent scrimmage. After winning the OAA Blue two years in a row, the Maples are in the OAA White this season.

The rivals traditionally meet in the final game of the season but will meet in Week 1 for the first time since 2001. Since that time, the Maples lead the series 8-5.

Last year’s 28-22 victory by Seaholm gave it the OAA Blue title. This matchup is just for bragging rights, as Seaholm has been moved to the OAA White. Groves is looking to snap a two-game losing streak to its rival. Each loss was by seven points or less.
