Prairie Girls Football League Final slated for this Sunday in Moosomin


The inaugural champion of the Prairie Girls Football League will be crowned this Sunday in Moosomin when the hometown Generals host the Yorkton Lady Gridders in the league's first ever championship game. 

The Generals advanced on after a 25-6 semi-final win over the Melville Vipers, while the Lady Gridders advanced to the final after a 20-12 win over the Regina Victoria's in last Sunday's Semi-Final. 

"It was a back and forth game, with each team having leads at different points in the game, but we were able to dig deep late and come out on top," Lady Gridder Head Coach Tyrel McLean said. 

This is the first year of existence for the PGFL which includes teams in Melville, Yorkton, Regina, Moosomin and Estevan, and McLean said to win the first ever title would be special. 

"The girls are excited, Moosomin's a good team, they play a power run game which we are preparing for and if we play like we can and handle the weather conditions well, we should come out on top."

Kick-off from Moosomin on Sunday will be at 1PM. 

The Melville Vipers and Regina Victoria's will also play on Halloween Sunday at 12 Noon in a third place game.

Sacred Heart Saints Boys’ Soccer Team to Host 4A SHSAA Provincials this weekend


The Sacred Heart Saints Boys Soccer Team is preparing to host the Saskatchewan High School Athletics Association 4 A Soccer championships Friday October 29th and Saturday October 30th.

The tournament will pit the top four teams in the 4 A category in the province vying for the gold medal prize.

This years competition has Moose Jaw Central, North Battleford John Paul II, Martensville, and Sacred Heart.

 Sacred Heart has had success in this competition having won 5 championships as well as two silver medals and a bronze medal finish over the past two decades. This years Saints team has competed in the Moose Jaw High School Soccer league competing mostly against 5 A High School teams.

The Saints went 2 wins and 5 losses in the season and have learned some valuable lessons that should help in the provincial playoffs. The team consists of many new players mixed in with some key veterans.

Most of the team has developed their skills in the Yorkton United Soccer program as well as the Soccer Academy course at Sacred Heart. Growing together as a team and building chemistry has been a large focus this season. The pandemic has had an impact on high school sports as students have not had the opportunity to compete for the last year and a half. Some student athletes have drifted away from school sports in favor of working at various businesses in the area.

 Having a year away from school soccer has resulted in the challenge of attracting back athletes, learning the tendencies of the teammates and working together as a team. The Saints look forward to the competition that awaits them over the next week. Having the opportunity to play teams out of Moose Jaw, Regina and the North is exciting for the Saints.

Building during the season to peak at this time is not an exact science but is the ultimate goal of the team.

Coaches Robert Okeny and Emily Kruger have been pushing the boys to do exactly that.

 Ultimately, this season has been a win-win for all involved. It has been great having the opportunity to get out on the field and play again. Playing for a provincial championship is the cherry on top.

The Saints invite the community to come out and watch some exciting soccer on October 29th and 30th. Admission to the games is 7 dollars for adults and 5 dollars for grade 7 to 12 students.

 Games will be at 11:00 AM and 2:00 PM both days and will be played at the Sacred Heart soccer fields located behind Sacred Heart High School.

But the Titans, on a power play of their own, regained the lead as Thiessen added his 2nd of the night to give the home-team a lead after 40 minutes.

Then while on their 5th power play of the night, the Titans would turn it over in their own zone and Jamie Valentino made no mistake going five-hole for his 2nd of the even to put the Stampeders' ahead for the first time.

Connor Brust denied Swan Valley from winning in regulation time as his wrist-shot beat Kobe Grant top-shelf with 4:58 left in the regulation time to force extra time.
