High School Roundup (SK) [7]: City Championship’s to be decided in Saskatchewan

Every week canadafootballchat.com (CFC) will be getting the scoop on what went down in high school football and what’s coming up the following week. If you have a game recap or upcoming preview, please submit it to [email protected].

Saskatoon 3A

North Battleford Vikings (49), Evan Hardy Souls (14)

JT Lamb did his thing as he rumbled his way for 240 yards and four touchdowns on the ground as the Vikings stomped the Souls and punched their ticket to the 3A City Final. The future is bright for this Hardy program, but they, unfortunately, ran into the juggernaut in the semi-final. The Souls were able to hang around, as they trailed 21-14 with four minutes left in the first half. However, the Vikings were simply too much for Hardy to handle, as NB then put up 28 unanswered to seal the victory. North Battleford looks to be the strongest 3A team in the province and should be considered the favorite entering the championship game on Friday night. Tommy Douglas defeated the Vikings in week three of the regular season, 35-26, handing the Vikings their only loss against a 3A team all season long.

Β Tommy Douglas Tigers (51), Bishop James Mahoney Saints (45)

How about Hayden Sabadash? The stud quarterback continues to get it done for the Tigers, as he threw for 285 yards and added 175 on the ground, combining for six total touchdowns. He’s only one win away from bringing a city championship back to Tommy Douglas. Sabadash’s quarterback counterpart, Doug Fleming put up an admirable performance in the losing effort for the Saints. Fleming found the house once through the air and three times on the ground, totaling 298 total yards. Gavin Delahey was also strong for BJM, as the linebacker recorded 11.5 total tackles, a blocked kick, and interception totaling 31 defensive points. It was a disappointing end to the season for the Saints, who are the perennial top dog in Saskatoon 3A. Meanwhile, the victory for the Tigers certainly tastes sweet as BJM eliminated Tommy Douglas in the city semi-final last season.

Next week in Saskatoon 3A…

7:30 Tommy Douglas 51 @ Bishop James Mahoney 45 SMF Field
5:15 Β Tommy Douglas @ Β North Battleford Β SMF Field

Here we go… City title on the line. North Battleford will travel into Saskatoon to take on the Tigers in what should be an absolute thriller at SMF Field. Vikings pivot Damon Dutton has arguably been the best quarterback not only in the conference but also the city this season. Dutton threw for 1844 yards on 102-144 passing, with a sensational 20-1 touchdown to interception ratio. Alongside, star running back J.T. Lamb, Dutton will look to power North Battleford to a city title as well as an appearance in the 3A Provincial Championship game.

Regina Stewart Conference (3A)

Greenall Griffins (21), Johnson Wildcats (12)

For the first time in Stewart Conference History, the 3A City Title is leaving Regina for Balgonie! The Greenall Griffins entered the game as the favorites and came away with the ‘W’. Grade 11 runningback Silas Funk took a handoff 93 yards with under four minutes left in the fourth quarter, which solidified the victory for the Griffins.

Next week in the Stewart Conference…

Greenall will play host to the Yorkton Raiders at Leibel Field at 1pm on Saturday, November 11th. The Griffins enter the game as the underdog, however, are more battle tested than the Raiders. Greenall has battled it out against tough competition all season long which could prove to be an advantage come Saturday afternoon. The winner of this contest will then travel north to Saskatoon for the provincial championship to take on the winner of the 3A City Title in the Bridge City.

Yorkton Raiders (59), Swift Current Colts (2)

History has been made. It’s the first league title for Yorkton and the first for a school from outside of Moose Jaw to become MJHSFL champions since 2005. It’s been complete domination from start to finish for the Raiders, who outscored their opponents 440-27 in 2017. However, their work isn’t done yet. The Raiders will travel to Regina on November 11th, to take on the Stewart Conference Champion. The winner of that matchup will then make the trip to Saskatoon for the 3A Provincial Championship.

Next week in Moose Jaw….

MJHSFL MVP Jordin Rusnack will lead his Raiders into Regina, as Yorkton chases after a 3A Provincial Championship. The Raiders will take on the Greenall Griffins out of Balgonie. The Griffins will need to shut down this dynamic offense, headlined by Rusnack and star receiver Matthew Mundziak. Mundziak was a stud during the regular season, racking up 33 receptions forΒ 591 yards. The Raiders have been dominant all season and appear to be the favorite heading into this matchup.
