RECAP: Sinclair sets TD record in Spirits victory, Boyes unstoppable & playoff matchups set

In week #5 from Monday, September 29 to Thursday, October 2, 2014 Northern Saskatchewan Football had five games played across the region.

Opening the week on Monday,  the Green Lake Spirits had Braedy Sinclair establish a record of eight touchdowns to defeat the Buffalo Narrows Eagles by a score of 54-45. Over the last two games Braedy has scored 13 touchdowns .  On Tuesday, the Beauval Voyageurs played a solid defensive game in recording 10 quarterback sacks and shutting out the La Loche Lakers by a score of 34-0. Wednesday saw the Sandy Bay T-Wolves travel to Cumberland House to play the Islanders to determine second place in the Eastern Division. The hometown Cumberland team prevailed with a 34-12 victory. Finally on Thursday, there was a double header in the Lac La Ronge area on a cold, windy and snowy afternoon. The first game witnessed the Creighton Kodiaks visit the Senator Myles Venne Huskies at the Lac la Ronge Indian Band. Creighton won the game by a score of 44-8. Across town, at the Churchill High School in La Ronge, the chargers won their first game of the season with a 50-47 victory over the visiting Birch Hills Marauders. In that game, #15 Connor Boyes led the Chargers with six touchdowns.

Looking ahead to next week, the rescheduled game on Monday between La Loche and Green Lake has been cancelled. Northern Saskatchewan Football playoffs will begin on Friday, October 10th in Buffalo Narrows where the fifth place, La Loche Lakers hope to win a game over the fourth place Eagles. Following this game, all teams will have a week off and will commence the divisional semi-finals on October 20th. Churchill Chargers of La Ronge will continue with their regular season play in provincial Cconference Four with a home game against Wakaw on Thursday, October 9.

At the end of the fifth week and the regular season, both the Pinehouse Lakers and Creighton Kodiaks have each recorded a perfect 4-0 record in their respective divisions and will have homefield advantage in the playoffs. Leading play in offensive statistics is Evan Linnick from Creighton has 122 points . Unfortunately, for Braedy Sinclair, the fourth game of the season  has been cancelled, or perhaps he may have taken the lead on points in his final game. On defense, Dustin Montgrand from La Loche leads with five quarterback sacks. Easton McKenzie from Cumberland House leads all players with two interceptions.
