Saskatoon 4A

Aden Bowman Bears (31), Marion Graham Falcons (14)

How bout those Bears? Aden Bowman moves to 5-1 on the season after a convincing win over the Falcons. Quinn Santha continues to prove he’s one of the top quarterbacks in the city, as he threw for 264 yards for two touchdowns on 21-29 passing. Bears star running back Matthew Digout broke the game open in the third quarter when he took a punt back 88 yards for the major. The Bears will battle #CFC50 Centennial in a postseason tuneup between two 5-1 teams, with the game likely being a pre-cursor to the city semi-final.

St. Joseph Guardians (39), Carlton Crusaders (6)

The Guardians marched into Prince Albert and made a statement over the Crusaders. That’s the second straight victory for St. Joes as they move to 3-3 on the season and appear destined to return to the postseason. Joes rumbled for 322 yards on the ground, 187 of those yards were from their star running back Keegan White, who also found the end zone twice on 15 carries. Linebacker Mason Dirham continues to impress in his grade 11 season, as he picked off Jaques Lavois in the third quarter. Dirham returned it back 22 yards to the house for the pick six. The loss drops Carlton back to 2-4 in 2017.

Bethlehem Stars (33), Walter Murray Marauders (21)

The Stars stunned the Marauders in week six action, as both teams move to 2-4 on the season. However, the loss wasn’t the fault of Adam Labrash. Week in and week out Labrash continues to prove he’s one of the top high school football players in Saskatchewan. He racked up 4 receptions for 53 yards along with 108 yards on the ground and 2 touchdowns on 11 carries. Labrash then stepped in at quarterback when Rene Carter was pulled after four interceptions, he racked up 211 yards passing. He’s big, strong and versatile. The senior standout will be a target for multiple U-Sports schools across the nation. Meanwhile, Stars quarterback Artem Doroshenko put together one of his best games of the season, throwing for 175 yards and three touchdowns. Running back John Conteras was instrumental in the ground game, as he tallied up 202 yards and two touchdowns and he led his team to a much-needed victory.

Next week in Saskatoon 4A…

Walter Murray will take on St. Joes in what will be a must win for the Marauders as they will attempt to do anything possible to keep their postseason dreams alive. They’ll likely need a convincing victory over the Guardians to sway the minds of the voters in order to sneak into the postseason instead of Joes. 5:15pm kickoff on Thursday at SMF Field.

Bethlehem will look to go back to back in the win column when they travel to Prince Albert to take on St. Mary. Friday 4:00pm at Max Clunie Field.

Saskatoon 3A

Bishop James Mahoney Saints (41), Evan Hardy Souls (7)

The Souls struggled to move the ball as they played without starting quarterback Talawa Mudasia. Star running back Carter McLean was forced to fill in under center, and couldn’t replicate the success this offense has had so far in 2017. The Saints still made a statement against Evan Hardy, as they moved to 3-2-1. BJM receiver Evan Ward hauled in two receptions for 48 yards, with each going for touchdowns. Boston Davidsen racked up 95 yards and a score, on 12 carries, as the Souls defense simply was unable to slow down this prolific Saints offense. Evan Hardy will hope for a healthy Talawa Mudasia in week seven, as they’ll square up a talented Tommy Douglas team.

 Warman Wolverines (36), Tommy Douglas Tigers (22)

Wow! Warman pulls out an absolutely shocking victory over the Tigers on the road in Saskatoon. This team is only improving, and while their 2-4 record most likely won’t be enough to sneak them into the postseason, watch out for this team in 2018. The Wolverines managed to slow down Tigers quarterback Hayden Sabadash, limiting him to 122 yards through the air. Running back Lachlan Horsley led the way for Warman, as he recorded 155 yards and a touchdown on only nine carries. The loss dropped the Tigers into a tie for third in the conference at 3-2-1.

Bedford Road Redhawks (29), Mount Royal Mustangs (0)

Josh Petrun picked up his first win as the Redhawks starting quarterback, as he threw for 175 yards and three touchdowns. Petrun found his favorite target Dane McMurtry early and often, as he racked up 5 catches for 98 yards and a TD. McMurtry also stuffed the stat sheet on the defensive side of the ball, tallying two interceptions. The win moves Bedford Road to 2-3 on the season, with both victories coming over the 0-5 Mustangs.

North Battleford Vikings (55), St. Mary Marauders (0)

A tough loss against Holy Cross in week five didn’t appear to slow down this talented Vikings team as they got right back into the win column with a stomping of St. Mary. Quarterback Damon Dutton lit up the stat sheet, throwing for 298 yards and 4 touchdowns, while talented grade 11 running back J.T. Lamb added 102 yards and a touchdown of his own. In my opinion, this is the most talented team in 3A and are worthy of the number one seed in the conference come playoff time.

Next week in Saskatoon 3A…

Warman will look to pick up their third win of the season when they take on a struggling Mount Royal team. 3:00pm kickoff on Thursday afternoon at SMF Field.

It’s been a very disappointing season for Marion Graham in 2017, and that’s a trend that has the potential to continue when they travel to North Battleford to take on the Vikings. 6:30pm kickoff, Thursday night in NB.

Quarterback Hayden Sabadash will look to get his Tigers team back in the win column as they’ll battle the 4-2 Hardy Souls. Thursday night at SMF Field, 7:30pm kickoff.

Bedford Road will have a good opportunity to pick up their second straight win when they play host to Carlton in Saskatoon. 3:00pm kickoff, Friday afternoon at SMF Field.

Regina Schwann Conference (4A)

Campbell Tartans (21), O’Neill Titans (14)

Chalk it up, make it two straight wins for the Tartans. Campbell snuck by the Titans on Wednesday night at Mosaic, as they moved to 4-1-1 on the season. Another game, another amazing performance for linebacker Josh White. White, who was recently ranked in the third and final edition of the #CFC100 proved why. The linebacker racked up 10.5 tackles, along with a fumble recovery. He’s the top player at his position in the province and will be a sought-after U-Sports recruit. The win kept the Tartans in pace with Leboldus in second place in the Schwann Conference, as both teams chase the Miller Marauders as we enter the seventh and final week of the regular season.

Next week in the Schwann Conference…

Riffel looks to move to 4-3 in their final regular season game before the postseason begins, as they take on Winston Knoll at Mosaic Stadium on Friday night. 5:15pm kickoff.

Regina Stewart Conference (3A)

Balfour Bears (58), Martin Monarchs (0)

Balfour laid a beatdown on the Monarchs, as the Bears clinched the number one seed in the Stewart Conference. Balfour quarterback Noah Pelletier had yet another strong game under center as he threw for 280 yards and two touchdowns. Pelletier will roll into the postseason with an impressive 20:4 touchdown to interception ratio and will look to lead this Bears team all the way to the city championship game.

Greenall Griffins (13), Thom Trojans (0)

The Griffins shutout the Trojans on Thursday night at Leibel. The win for Greenall will send them all the way to the semi-finals, bypassing a quarterfinal matchup after receiving a first-round bye. Trojans linebacker Ethan Howitt put together another impressive performance, recording six tackles, a sack and an interception in the losing effort. Thom will square off against Johnson in the first round of the postseason.

Johnson Wildcats (39), Notre Dame Hounds (29)

Johnson snuck by the Hounds in a tight one at Mosaic. QB Stephen Woit was mistake-free under center for the Wildcats, throwing for 261 yards and a touchdown. Woit enters the postseason with one of the best QBR’s in the conference, as he currently sits at an impressive 146.66 in six games. Woit will look to lead the Wildcats over the Thom Trojans in the Stewart Conference quarter-finals on Wednesday night.

Sheldon Williams Spartans (59), Luther Lions (0)

Another tough game for the Lions. Luther flat out struggled to compete this season, as they were outscored 302-35 over the course of the season. They’ll aim to finish their season on a high note when they take on Martin in the Kiwanis Bowl.

Next week in the Stewart Conference…

It’s playoff time in the Stewart!

Balfour is the number one overall see in the conference and are rewarded with a bye to the semifinals and will face the winner between Johnson and Thom. Johnson finished with a 5-2 record, but fell on the wrong end of the tiebreaker and will need to defeat the Trojans if they wish to keep their championship dreams alive. The game features two of the top running backs in the city, with Sadik Sadik representing the Wildcats and Wyatt David lining up for the Trojans. Sadik is averaging an impressive 10.4 yards per carry, while racking up 771 yards and seven touchdowns on the season. Davis has recorded 609 yards on the ground of his own and will be heavily leaned on as Thom aims to pull out the upset. Wednesday 5:15pm kickoff, at Mosaic Stadium.

The Greenall Griffins were apart of a three-way tie, for second place in the Schwann and won the tiebreaker for the right to receive a first-round bye. They’ll be lining up against the winner of the second quarterfinal, a game between the Sheldon Williams Spartans and Notre Dame Hounds. The Spartans were on the losing side of that very tiebreaker and are fresh off a 59-0 stomping over Luther. Sheldon quarterback Keegan Kaytor led the Stewart conference in yards during the regular season and will look to continue his dominant play against a struggling Hounds team. Notre Dame snuck into the postseason through a tiebreaker of their own, after finishing at 1-5-1. The Hounds offense runs through running back Ethan Mattern and if they want to have any chance of upsetting the Spartans, they’ll need a big game out of Mattern who’s racked up 511 yards and four touchdowns this season. Wednesday 7:30pm kickoff, at Mosaic Stadium.
