PFC Game of the Week (3): Battle of Alberta

The Game of the Week in the PFC will feature a battle of Alberta as the Calgary Colts (0-2) visit the Edmonton Huskies (2-0) in the lone game during the Labour Day weekend.

The Huskies are off to terrific start outscoring the opposition 59-46.  They would go on the road last weekend and spoil the Winnipeg Rifles party as they opened up play on the new Interior Field, chalking up 560 yards of total offense in the process.

Offensively the Huskies have been led by quarterback Trevor Erdmann.  In the first two games of the season he is 36-61 for 576 yards and has thrown five touchdown passes.

When Erdmann is not throwing passes he is handing the ball off to Jimmie Alrey who has rushed 21 times for 189 yards and has a touchdown.

Defensively the Huskies have been led by Rees Paterson who has 12 tackles in two games along with an interception.  Dillon Garry has eight tackles and Craig Dorey has a sack and a fumble recovery.

This Huskies offense has compiled in 899 yards in the first two games of the season, a completely different team from a year ago who finished 0-8 and scored just 175 the entire season.  This weekend they will look to take advantage of a younger Colts team on Saturday night at Clarke Park.

The Calgary Colts have not looked like the same team as they did in 2012.    In the first two games of the season the Colts have been outscored 65-31.

The Colts have platooned quarterbacks as Jeremy Long is 10-17 for 160 yards and Keifer Olson has completed seven of 22 for 101 yards.  Neither QB has thrown a touchdown pass.

Richard Sawatzky has been the most success receiver in the first two games hauling in seven passes for 164 yards.

The most dangerous weapon the Colts have is running back Cameron Fox who has carried 32 times for 185 yards.

Defensively the Colts will be looking at Vince Greco and Stephen Dereniwski to slow down the Huskies offense.  Greco has 12 tackles to lead the club while Dereniwski has six stops and an interception.

Advocating for football prospects one story at a time.
