Next week in Saskatoon 4A…

Saskatoon 3A

Evan Hardy Souls (30), Warman Wolverines (24)

The Souls managed to squeak by the Wolverines in Warman on Thursday afternoon. Hardy is off to a strong start to 2017, and it’s clear the coaching change has created a winning culture. The Souls will be tested in weeks six and seven when they take on BJM and Tommy Douglas.

North Battleford Vikings (42), Bishop James Mahoney Saints (33)

What a win for the Vikings. North Battleford is officially the team to beat in 3A. A trademark win for this program, over a BJM program that hasn’t been on the losing side of too many games in this conference over the past five years. Vikings quarterback Damon Dutton was impressive, going 28/32 for 324 yards and 3 touchdowns. While running back JT Lamb continued his strong season, finding the end zone twice on 21 carries for 97 yards.Don’t be surprised to see these two teams rematch in the city final on Friday, November 3rd in Saskatoon.

St. Mary Marauders (50), Mount Royal Mustangs (0)

The Marauders jumped out to 2-2 on the season, after thumping Mount Royal in Saskatoon on Friday afternoon. It was a balanced, team effort on the ground for St. Mary’s as they racked up 215 yards on 5 touchdowns as a team. Mount Royal will head into week five chasing their first victory of 2017.

Carlton Crusaders (36), Bedford Road Redhawks (14)

Carlton picked up their first win of the season, defeating Bedford Road at home on Friday night. It was a well-timed win for the Crusaders, after a disappointing loss t0 their rival, the St. Mary Marauders in the Canadian Tire Classic in week three.

Tommy Douglas Tigers (40), Marion Graham Falcons (20)

Tommy Douglas continues their strong 2017 campaign, and this team will go as far their quarterback will take them. Hayden Sabadash has been outstanding all season long, and he continued that trend against the Falcons. Sabadash finished with 242 yards through the air and 4 touchdowns. Meanwhile, the Falcons continue to disappoint. A 0-4 start for the 2016 3A city runner-up is something nobody would’ve expected and it might be too little too late even if they’re able to throw a couple wins on the board as the season goes on.

Next week in Saskatoon 3A…

Carlton looks to make it two straight victories, as they host Mount Royal in Prince Albert. 6:30pm kickoff, Max Clunie Field.

Evan Hardy looks to jump to 4-1, as they take on Bedford Road Thursday night, 7:30pm SMF Field.

Bishop James Mahoney will meet up with Tommy Douglas in what should be a tightly contested football game. The game will provide some clarity in the conference, as these are arguably two of the top three programs in 3A. Friday afternoon, 3:00pm at SMF Field.

Marion Graham will have a good opportunity to pick up their first victory of the 2017 campaign, as Warman travels into Saskatoon to take on the Falcons. Friday night, 5:15 SMF Field.

Regina Schwann Conference (4A)

Riffel Royals (10), Campbell Tartans (9)

It was the game of the week in Saskatchewan for a reason, and it failed to disappoint. Riffel snuck by the Tartans in a defensive. This game goes to show just balanced, and competitive this Schwann Conference really is. The days of the powerhouses thrashing weaker programs by 50, finally appears to be over. Tyler Lalonde scored a touchdown with 25 seconds left in the game to give the Royals the victory. The Tartans studs on defense were strong once again despite the loss. 14.5 combined tackles between Team Saskatchewan linebackers Jaxon Ford and Josh White. While Aidan Mann also recorded 7.5 tackles and an interception. The Tartans enter week five sitting at 2-1-1, while they win for Riffel moved them up to 2-2.

Miller Marauders (36), O’Neill Titans (7)

The Miller Marauders continue to be one of the feel-good stories of the RIFL. Few would’ve expected this team to be sitting at 3-1 in their first season in the Schwann. Dillon Kiefer recorded two interceptions for the Marauders, one of which he took to the house for the pick six. Meanwhile, the offense was a concern for the Titans entering the game, and continues to be an area where they need to improve. Through four weeks they’ve only managed to score 21 points, which explains there 0-4 record. Miller will face a stern test in week five, squaring up against #CFC50 Leboldus on Friday night at Mosaic.

Next week in the Schwann Conference…

Riffel will look to pick up their third win of 2017 as they tangle with the Titans. Friday 5:15pm @ Mosaic Stadium.

Regina Stewart Conference (3A)

Martin Monarchs (24), Luther Lions (6)

It was a battle of winless teams Friday night at Mosaic, as Martin picked up their first victory of the season. The win moved the Monarchs to 1-3-1, while the loss dropped the Lions to 0-5. Monarchs running back Manny Ramos was leaned on heavily in the ground game, racking up 109 yards on 19 carries. On the defensive side of the ball, linebacker Daud Riaz was strong for Martin as he tallied up 5 tackles, a sack, and an interception. The Lions will continue looking for their first win in week six when they battle Greenall.

Balfour Bears (21), Thom Trojans (0)

Balfour made a statement in a battle between 3-1 teams, shutting out Thom at Leibel Field. Defensive back Indiana Stapelton was instrumental on defense, racking up 5.5 tackles and 2 interceptions, one of which he took to the end zone for the major. Ethan Howitt put up an impressive stat line on defense for Thomo defense, racking up 10 tackles and an interception. This Balfour team is arguably the best in the Schwann, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see them in the city final when November rolls around.

Johnson Wildcats (20), Greenall Griffins (0)

In the second matchup between 3-1 teams in the Stewart, Johnson shutout Greenall. The win brought the Wildcats up to 4-1 and into a tie along with Balfour on top of the Stewart. Meanwhile, the loss brought the Griffins down to 3-2.

Sheldon Williams Spartans (32), Notre Dame Hounds (6)

Keegan Kaytor led the way for the Spartans, as he chucked 4 touchdowns to go along with 231 yards through the air. The win moved Sheldon Williams up to 3-2 and into a three-way tie for third place in the Stewart. Kaytor’s favorite target continues to be receiver Mason Novik, as he continued to set the pace as the top pass catcher in the Stewart. Novik recorded 74 yards on 5 catches, while finding the end zone twice. The Spartan receiver has 25 receptions for 589 yards and 6 touchdowns on the season. Getting back in the win column won’t be easy for the 1-3-1 Hounds, as they take on Balfour in week six.

Next week in the Stewart Conference…

Balfour will look to continue their winning ways against 1-3-1 Notre Dame. Wednesday, 5:15pm at Mosaic Stadium.

Greenall has a great opportunity to jump back in the column against winless Luther. Thursday 7:30pm at Mosaic Stadium.

Moose Jaw 3A Conference

Peacock Tornadoes (76), Estevan Elecs (22)

Peacock continued their dominant campaign and continue to make it clear they’re the team to beat in the MJHSFL. The Tornadoes are once again a favorite in the Saskatchewan 3A provincial championship. Meanwhile, the Elecs will enter week six, still chasing their first victory of 2017.

Yorkton Raiders (23), Central Cyclones (12)

The Raiders managed to squeak by the Cyclones, as they moved to 4-0 on the season. Yorkton quarterback Jordin Rusnack led the way for the Raiders, slinging it for 116 yards, and gaining 104 on the ground.
