Saskatoon 4A

Aden Bowman Bears (17), St. Joseph Guardians (6)

The Bears surprised the Guardians, and the rest of Saskatoon in a big win for their program on Friday night. One of the cities top defensive backs, Zac Boot made his mark on the game, recording one interception, along with three pass knockdowns and three tackles. Bowman was able rebound impressively after a beatdown at the hands of Holy Cross in week two. It’s a tough loss for St. Joes, who now falls to 1-2 on the season, and will face that same Holy Cross program next week.

PA St. Mary Marauders (42), PA Carlton Crusaders (7)

The Marauders dismantled the Crusaders in the Canadian Tire Classic, the sixth straight victory for St. Mary in the matchup. The ground game carried the Marauder’s offense in this one, going for 350 yards as a team. Ashton Hall led the way with 177 yards of his own, on 21 carries while finding the offense twice. The win was the first for St. Mary on the season, while the Crusaders moved to 0-3.

Next week in Saskatoon 4A…

Saskatoon 3A

35 to 26 win over North Battleford on a rainy night at SMF! Great game Tigers ?

A post shared by Tommy Douglas (@tommydtigers) on

Tommy Douglas Tigers (35), North Battleford Vikings (26)

Tommy Douglas took down North Battleford in a measuring stick game for each of these talented teams. Tigers quarterback Hayden Sabadash continued to build on his strong 2017, throwing 15/18 for 223 yards and three touchdowns. Sabadash has been instrumental for the Tigers so far this season, and his mistake-free play has led his team to a 2-1 record. Vikings running back JT Lamb also continued his strong season, racking up 192 yards on the ground and three touchdowns of his own on 26 carries. Each team now sits at 2-1 and are each 3A playoff surefires.

Evan Hardy Souls (31), Marion Graham Falcons (12)

The Souls went Falcon hunting on Thursday night in Saskatoon and for the first time in six seasons, Evan Hardy came out of this matchup with a victory. The win was a monumental one for the Souls, and the confidence and swagger this group is currently playing with is unmatched. Their two talented running backs had their way all game against a Graham defense that wore down heavily over the span of the night. Carter Mclean ran for 138 yards on 17 carries, adding two touchdowns. While Nathaniel Lukan added 109 yards of his own on 10 carries. This matchup was a big one, as it’s likely that this game will decide who’s the fourth team to squeak into the 3A playoffs.

Bethlehem Stars (54), Mount Royal Mustangs (0)

The Stars laid a beatdown on the Mustangs on Friday afternoon, as they tallied their first win of the season. Bethlehem dominated in all facets of the game, outgaining Royal 417-26 in net offense. Stars LB Matthew Wist led the way defensively, running back an interception 34 yards to the house, and added with 5 total tackles. The Mustangs fell to 0-2 with the loss.

Warman Wolverines (30), Bedford Road Redhawks (0)

It was a historic day in Warman, as the Wolverines shut out the Redhawks in their first ever 12 man victory. Warman was promoted to Saskatoon 3A this season, after back to back 9-man provincial championships in 2015 and 2016. Look for this bunch to continue to improve as they get used to their new competition.

Next week in Saskatoon 3A…

Evan Hardy travels to Warman to take on the Wolverines. Each team is coming off big victories, and they’ll look to continue their winning ways in week 4 in Saskatoon.

Marion Graham will look to pick up their first win of the season, against a hot Tommy Douglas team.North Battleford will take the journey down to Saskatoon to battle the Bishop James Mahoney Saints in a clash between two of 3A’s finest. Each team is reeling after tough losses and will look to get back into the win column in what would be a statement win for either program.

North Battleford will take the journey down to Saskatoon to battle the Bishop James Mahoney Saints in a clash between two of 3A’s finest. Each team is reeling after tough losses and will look to get back into the win column in what would be a statement win for either program.

St. Mary is confident after a big win at home against their rivals and will look to build on that victory in a clash in Saskatoon against Mount Royal.

Bedford Road will travel north on Highway 11 into Prince Albert to meet up with Carlton and Max Clunie Field. Each team will aim to pick up a week four win, a victory that would be the first for the Crusaders.

Regina Schwann Conference (4A)

Miller Marauders (49), Winston Knoll Wolverines (28)

The Miller Marauders continue to impress. Their promotion to the Schwann this season is a move that continues to be validated week in and week out. They now sit at 2-1, with their lone loss coming at the hands of #CFC50 Leboldus, a 21-7 battle. Opposing coaches raved about this program to me in the preseason, and that optimism was warranted. Their victory over Knoll was large, as it likely will come down to these two schools for the fourth and final playoff spot.

Riffel Royals (37), O’Neill Titans (0)

The Royals got their first win of 2017, defeating the Titans handily at Mosaic. Riffel’s 1-2 record is an indictment of how strong and balanced this Schwann conference is. Meanwhile, O’Neill continues to struggle to keep up with their opponents high-scoring offenses, as they drop to 0-3.

Next week in the Schwann Conference…

O’Neill will hunt for their first win of the 2017 campaign as they square off against Miller, kick off at 5:15 at Leibel Field. The Titans have struggled to score so far this season, only racking up a total of 14 points to date. That’s going to have to change, as their defense will be in for a long night trying to slow down a Marauder offense that just threw up 49 against Winston Knoll.

Campbell will face off against Riffel at 7:30 at Mosaic Stadium, in a rematch of a week three classic. Campbell is hot off a tie against #CFC50 Leboldus, and will look to carry over that momentum into this one.

Regina Stewart Conference (3A)

Sheldon Williams Spartans (31), Balfour Bears (7)

The Bears are no longer undefeated. Sheldon Williams made a statement on Thursday night, defeating the 3-0 Balfour Bears. It was a clash between two of the Stewart Conference’s finest quarterbacks and Keegan Kaytor was able to outperform his counterpart Noah Pelletier as he pulled out the win for the Spartans. The win brought Sheldon up to .500 on the season, and they’ll look to use this victory as a confidence booster going forward.

Greenall Griffins (26), Notre Dame Hounds (5)

With the Bears loss, Greenall joins them at 3-1, on top of the Stewart Conference. The Griffins handled the Hounds with ease, as the Notre Dame drops to 1-2-1 on the season.

Thom Trojans (42), Luther Lions (0)

Thom thumped Luther, as the Lions disappointing 2017 campaign continues. The Lions are 0-4 on the season, a regression from last years 3-3 record. Meanwhile, the victory for the Trojans also moves them up to 3-1, and into a tie for first.

Johnson Wildcats (34), Martin Monarchs (8)

Another game, another team moving to 3-1. Johnson becomes the fourth team to join the cluster a top of the Stewart. All four programs are strong, and it’s a guessing game when it comes who’s bringing it home come November. Meanwhile, Martin remains alongside Luther as the only teams still searching for a victory.

Next week in the Stewart Conference…

Martin and Luther will meet Friday night at Mosaic, as both teams hunt for their first win of the season. The Monarchs are sitting at 0-3-1, while the Lions position themselves slightly behind Martin at 0-4.

Meanwhile, it’s a battle of 3-1 teams at Leibel at 5:15, as Thom faces off against Balfour. The Bears will look to rebound after a tough loss, while the Trojans will look to continue their winning ways and climb to the top of the Stewart.

And… at 7:30 it’s another clash between 3-1 programs. Greenall will take on Johnson at Mosaic. It’s going to be a great Friday night for football in Regina, and it’ll be interesting to see how week five shakes up the standings.

Over at Leibel Field, Sheldon Williams will have a great opportunity to build on their morale-boosting victory over Balfour, as they’ll look to defeat the Hounds and move to 3-2.
