Saskatoon 3A

Evan Hardy Souls (29), Bedford Road Redhawks (13)

The Souls defeated the Redhawks and with the win, climbed into first place in the conference with a 4-1 record. Souls running back Carter McLean continued his strong season, as he found the end zone twice. McLean now has 352 yards on 19 carries for five touchdowns on the season. Meanwhile, the Redhawks shifted Dane McMurtry to receiver after starting the season at quarterback and he made an instant impact at the new position. McMurtry caught 11 passes for 216 yards and a touchdown, and immediately became the favorite target of new QB Josh Petrum. This revitalized Hardy program is for real, but they’ll be tested Friday night when they take on the BJM Saints.

Marion Graham Falcons (18), Warman Wolverines (17)

The Marion Graham Falcons finally picked up their first win of the season, sneaking past the Wolverines. Graham has had a very difficult schedule in 2017, and the team has failed to repeat past successful seasons. Running back Andrew Smith rumbled into the end zone from five yards out in the fourth quarter, which proved to be the game-deciding touchdown for the Falcons. Graham’s schedule won’t get any easier as they face off against Aden Bowman in week six.

Bishop James Mahoney Saints (29), Tommy Douglas Tigers (29)

What a thriller in Saskatoon. Two great teams battled it out to a tie on Friday afternoon at SMF Field. Two of the cities finest quarterbacks shared the field in the contest, as Hayden Sabadash and Doug Fleming each threw the ball well. Sabadash threw for 265 yards and two touchdowns for the Tigers but was intercepted twice. He also was able to use his legs efficiently, adding 132 yards on the ground and a touchdown on 13 carries. Meanwhile, Doug Fleming had four total touchdowns and 194 yards through the air. Don’t be surprised to see these two programs meet in the 3A city semi-final on October 25th.

Carlton Crusaders (58), Mount Royal Mustangs (13)

Carlton picked up their second straight win, thumping the Mustangs in Prince Albert. Jacques Lavoie led the rushing attack for the Crusaders, piling up 92 yards and three touchdowns. The loss dropped Mount Royal down to 0-4 on the season, while the Crusaders moved up to 2-3.

The grade ten receiver continues to stand out as one of the best players in Regina, racking up eight receptions for 129 yards and two touchdowns. The Titans managed to slow down the Schwann Conference’s leading rusher Zack Arsenault however, fellow running back Hunter Bohay stepped up. Bohay ran for 147 yards on only 11 carries and found the end zone three times. The Royals are currently sitting in fourth place, narrowly trailing Campbell and Leboldus.

Campbell Tartans (34), Winston Knoll Wolverines (20)

Tartans quarterback Matt Rivers used his legs to make plays for his team, finding the end zone twice for Campbell, as they moved to 3-1-1 after a solid win over the Wolverines. Campbell linebacker Josh White continued his superb senior season, recording seven tackles and a fumble recovery. With a shocking Leboldus loss, the Tartans move into a second-place tie with the Suns in the Schwann Conference, while the Wolverines sit at 1-5.

Tristen Leon-Brighten caught two passes and made the most of them, taking each to the house and racking up a total of 77 receiving yards.

Greenall Griffins (38), Luther Lions (0)

Luther’s frustrating season continues, as they were shutout at the hands of the Griffins, moving the Lions to 0-6 on the season. It’s difficult to win ball games when you’ve been shutout 32-248 on the year like the Lions have. Austin Van Cryenest was a bright spot for Luther as added three tackles, a blocked kick and a deflection which tallied up 14 defensive points. Carter Zinger threw the ball well for Greenall, as he recorded 161 yards and 2 touchdowns, helping the Griffins move into a four-way tie for second place in the Stewart Conference.
