GOTW (SK): CFC50 No. 4 Golden Suns and CFC50 No. 19 Royals to battle for first place in Regina

This Friday night the top two teams in Regina will meet for bragging rights at Leibel Field. The 5-0 Riffel Royals will take on the 5-0 LeBoldus Golden Suns in a match to determine top spot in the Schwann Conference.


Last week the Royals defeated the Campbell Tartans, 46-8. Derek Pilon has been really impressed by the leadership on his team this year. “Our captains and seniors have really brought the team together and have focused our team on a common goal for each week,” he replied. “We have a great group and it has been fun coaching them thus far.”

Ethan Ball has been a solid all-around player in each phase of the game. Ethan can break the game open at any moment with an interception, big return or a clutch catch. Mason Engele is a physical player who has been a key to the Royals line play and defense this season. Ethan is the team’s main vocal leader as well. Hunter Bohay is another playmaker for the Riffel Royals. Hunter has a physical running style, and he has the speed to break a big run at any moment in the game. Travis Horton has stood out for the Royals on defense. Hunter is a great athlete who can make plays all over the field, and he is a solid tackler.

The Riffel Royals can continue their success Friday night against Leboldus if they play disciplined football. “LeBoldus is a really good team and are very balanced in all phases,” replied Pilon. “I also think it is no surprise that we have to try our best to limit Ryker Frank from breaking long touchdown runs like he has done all season long.”

This week’s game is important to the Royals because it’s for first place, the Schwann Conference trophy (regular season champions), and it’s the last regular season game.

Last Thursday the LeBoldus Golden Suns reached 5-0 by winning their game 58-14 against the Miller Marauders. John Foord mentioned that his team has been playing unified team football with multiple players contributing to his team’s success this season.

Offensively, the Golden Suns offensive line has done a great job protecting the quarterback and opening holes for Ryker Frank. Frank was a member of the 2019 CFC Prospect Game that was broadcast on TSN this past June. His performance was so dynamic in that game that he earned the Game MVP. He averaged over 10 yards per carry and continues to be just as dynamic this season.

In addition to Frank, Christian Fisher has been solid at quarterback and his receivers have all contributed in meaningful ways catching and blocking.

On defense, the entire unit has been great, led by seniors Joe Camplin, Tommy Avram and Ben Swallow.

The LeBoldus Golden Suns will improve to 6-0 if they execute their game plan, win the battle of field position, avoid penalties, focus on ball security and create turnovers.

LeBoldus is looking forward to matching up with the Royals because they are a very good team with solid systems, good coaching, and it will be a great battle. “It is great for our team to play against strong opponents as it will help them learn and grow as players,” replied Foord.

Friday night’s game will be held at Leibel Field. Kickoff is at 5:15 pm.
