Strathcona (23), Paul Kane (16)
We love it when teams fill out their stats/scoring summary on HUDL! Nice work Strathcona.

In the first quarter, the Lords were the first on the board with a touchdown run followed and successful kick. They would go into the half 7-0. Paul Kane would come back to score in the third, but would be unsuccessful on the convert. Kicking a 17 yard field goal by the Lords would bring the score to 10-6 going into the 4th quarter. Strathcona would get two more rushing touchdowns, both followed by unsuccessful kicks, but would finish the game with a final score of 22-12.

Archbishop Jordan (20), St. Albert (57)
With over 450 yards of total offence, St. Albert would run away with this one in the end. However, Archbishop Jordan hung in there and was only down by 9 going into the half.

ABJ would get on the board first with a rushing touchdown and a failed kick. It was then St. Albert’s turn who returned the favor with an 82-yard major by Christian Pulis, followed by a successful 2-pt conversion. The second half would be full of action for both teams as St. Albert’s Ewan Vanderheide would throw a 12-yard touchdown pass to Jackson Ganton. ABJ would answer back with a 37-yard major and 2-pt conversion. St. Albert would see Jackson Ganton score to more rushing touchdowns with successful kicks and ABJ would send everyone into the locker room with their 5-yard rushing touchdown.

At the half, 29-20 was the score.

St. Albert would take over in the second half with Jackson Ganton scoring two more rushing touchdowns, Ewan Vanderheide would get a score on the run and Christian Pulis would add a 25-yard rushing touchdown to his name on the night.

QB Vanderheide would go 5/12 for 93 yards and 1 passing touchdown with 1 interception, along with 7 carries for 69 yards and 1 rushing touchdown. Pulis would have 8 carries for 197 yards and 2 rushing touchdowns. Jackson Ganton would have 5 carries on 83 yards and a whopping 4 rushing touchdowns. He would also have 1 12-yard reception for a touchdown. Defensively for St. Albert, M. Swecera would register 8 tackles and 1 TFL, while teammate J. Lebrun would have 7 tackles and 1 TFL. N.
