Saskatoon 4A

Walter Murray Marauders (18), PA St. Mary Marauders (17)

In a battle of the Marauders, Walter Murray snuck away with the victory in a great football game. REC Adam Labrash was over 100 yards of receiving once again, and added 7 tackles on the defensive side of the ball. Labrash will be a big time U-Sports recruit, as he is currently positioning himself as one of Saskatchewan’s top talents. Murray struggled to run the ball, compiling only 13 yards on the ground, which will be a pressing issue going forward for the program.

Tommy Douglas Tigers (49), Bethlehem Stars (13)

Tommy Douglas is the Blairmore Ring winner in 2017. Tigers senior linebacker Tyrone Williams broke the game open with a 54 yard pick six in the second quarter, putting the Tigers ahead 35-6. On the offensive ball Hayden Sabadash was mistake free, throwing for 5 touchdowns on 10/13 passing for 230 yards.  The win is big for this program, who will look to make noise come playoff time.

Next week in Saskatoon 4A…

Bethlehem will take on a weaker Mount Royal team in a game they should be able to win handedly. It would be the first victory of the season for the Stars, as they have been slow out of the gate and currently are sitting at 0-2.

St. Joesph will battle Aden Bowman in which should be a competitive game between two consistently strong programs. Bowman will look to rebound after a thrashing at the hands of Holy Cross, but will be in tough against the Guardians.

Saskatoon 3A

Bishop James Mahoney Saints (35), Marion Graham Falcons (14)

One of Saskatoon’s premier rivalries, the ‘War on Lenore’. Bishop James Mahoney came out on top of the 2017 edition, defeating the Falcons handedly on Friday night under the lights. Doug Fleming led the way offensively for the Saints, slinging for 248 through the air including three majors. Don’t be surprised if this is a preview of a playoff matchup if these two perennially powerful programs meet in the city final once again.

North Battleford Vikings (56), Warman Wolverines (20)

The Vikings were victorious in their welcome week game as they made the trek south to battle the Wolverines, as Warman hosted their first 3A 12-man game in their towns short history. The Wolverines hung in there well with North Battleford, who is a very strong football team. Look for Warman to continue making strides as they make the adjustment from the 9-man game.

Evan Hardy Souls  (42), PA Carlton Crusaders (7)

The first win for Bret Thompson as the Hardy head coach was a big one. Grade 10 Quarterback Talawa Mudasia proved the future is bright for this developing program, throwing for 220 yards and 4 touchdowns. The two headed monster that is Nathaniel Lukan and Carter McLean combined for 193 yards on the ground, on only 13 carries. The well timed win will prove large for the Souls as they’ll enter a difficult task against one of 3A’s finest, the Marion Graham Falcons in week 3.

Bedford Road Redhawks (14), Mount Royal Mustangs (0),

Bedford Road and Mount Royal’s 2017 campaigns got started in week 2. Two closely matched teams battled it out and Bedord Road snuck away with a victory. Redhawk quarterback Dane McMurtry was a bright spot, throwing for 178 yards, while adding 78 on the ground and compiling two TD’s.

Next week in Saskatoon 3A…

North Battleford travels to Saskatoon to take on Tommy Douglas in a competitive matchup. It’s a measuring stick game. Both teams are in the hunt, and we’ll have a clearer indication on just how these two programs stack up going forward.

Evan Hardy will have a tough test against Marion Graham on Thursday night. The Souls haven’t beat Graham in 6 years, and the Falcons will look to continue that trend on Thursday.

In Prince Albert, it’s a clash between St. Mary and Carelton. Expect a good atmosphere at Max Clunie field, look for the Marauders to take it to their inner city rivals.

It’ll be a prime oppurtunity for Warman to pick up their first ever 12-man victory, as the Wolverines will play host to Bedford Road. The Wolverines have the talent to make this a long night for the Redhawks.

Regina Schwann Conference (4A)

Winston Knoll Wolverines (40), O’Neill Titans (7)

Knoll confirmed their arrival to the Schwann with a statement win over the Titans. D’Sean Mibbs was instrumental in the aerial attack for the Wolverines, racking up 160 yards on 8 receptions while finding the end zone twice.

Campbell Tartans (28),Riffel Royals (27)

The Tartans snuck by the Royals in a thriller in Regina. After trailing the entire contest, Campbell LB Jaxon Ford punted the ball through the end zone for a rogue to give his team the lead with 24 seconds left in the ball game, sealing the win for the Tartans. Drew Lawrence was big for Campbell, recording 3 interceptions. The Tartans will face a stern test against #CFC50 Leboldus next week.

Next week in the Schwann Conference…

Winston Knoll and Miller are each sitting at 1-1, and will face meet Thursday night at Mosaic in a clash between two teams who could be scrapping it out over the stretch to squeak out the fourth and final playoff spot in the Schwann.

Riffel will look to get back in the win column against O’Neill in the night cap of the double header at Mosaic.

Regina Stewart Conference (3A)

Sheldon Williams Spartans (50), Martin Monarchs (0)

The Spartans laid it on the Monarchs in a blowout at Leibel Field. Martin has struggled to get things rolling this season and will face another stern task next week against Johnson.

Balfour Bears (25), Greenall Griffins (21)

In a battle of undefeated’s, the Bears defeated the Griffin’s in a potential preview of the Stewart Conference Championship game. Bears quarterback Noah Pelltier led the way in the win, throwing for 245 yards on 17/30 passing, and adding 3 majors. The Bears will look to continue their hot start in week 4 against Sheldon Williams.

Johnson Wildcats (58), Luther Lions (6)

Johnson took it to the Lions under the lights at Mosaic on Friday. Sadik Sadik was dominant for the Wildcats on the ground, tallying a monstrous 213 rushing yards on only 13 carries. The Johnson running back also added two touchdowns and a reception for 33 yards. He’ll look to add on to his already impressive season next week as the Wildcats take on Martin.

Thom Trojans (19), Notre Dame Hounds (2)

The Trojans defence stole the show, shutting down the Hounds on Friday night at Leibel. Baptiste Labri-Bouley led the way, intercepting Notre Dame quarterback Tanner Bean three times. Meanwhile Ethan Howitt added another pick for the Trojans to go along with 6 six tackles.

Next week in the Stewart Conference…

Sheldon Williams will look to get back to “.500” when they clash against Balfour Thursday night at Mosaic.

Notre Dame will aim to get their second win of the season, in what will be a tough one against Greenall at Leibel Field.

Thom is currently sitting at 2-1 on the season and will have a strong chance to add another win to their name Thursday at Mosaic, as they take on Luther.

Johnson will cap off week 4’s Stewart Conference action as they’ll also aim to reach the 3-1 mark, in a winnable game against Martin.
