It was a great weekend of football in the west central region, and across the province as the SHSAA provincial bracket for football is now set. Follow the link to view the completed brackets, and check out a quick description of each game from this past weekend below.
Outlook @ Clavet
The Outlook High School Blues saw their season end with an early playoff match-up last week, as they lost to the Clavet Cougars last Thursday. The Blues did not win a game this season and saw a point differential of -169, but hope this experience on the field can translate to a better season next year. They wanted to thank all of their sponsors, as well as the parents and fans that helped support Outlook football all season long.
Biggar @ Rosetown
Because of the way Conference 6 is aligned, two teams from the grouping are now confirmed into the SHSAA provincial bracket in the above Clavet, and a surprise upset team after an upset from the Biggar Blazers. The Rosetown Royals were the host this past weekend in the conferences other playoff match-up, and Biggar rolled into town and picked up a decisive 44-14 win. Biggar Central School on Facebook congratulated the boys on their win, along with a special reason regarding one of their teammates.
Unity @ Kindersley
With it being playoff time a good amount of league crossover is set to happen, an example being the top team from Conference 6 in Clavet now set to take on the Unity Warriors after they moved on with a road win this past weekend in Kindersley. The Kobras were enjoying a nice season as evidenced by their home playoff game, but were taken down by the Warriors in a very close game 31-28. The Kobras led by 3 points headed into the final possession, but Unity uncorked a 40 yard bomb to the end-zone to put up the winnings points as time expired in Kindersley.
Macklin @ Kerrobert
Perhaps the closest proximity game this weekend saw Plenty hosting Kerrobert. Kerrobert finished ahead of the Kobras for first place in Conference 7, but were forced into a similar situation against conference foe Macklin for the right to play against Plenty in the provincial quarter-final this weekend. Kerrobert won 78-0 on the weekend to clinch their provincial spot, and get a chance to prepare for Plenty. The Wildcats were idle this week as the only 1A team in their conference this year, and were likely already prepared for the possibility of taking on Kerrobert this early in the postseason.
Expect more from west central high school football teams, including the 9 man Delisle Rebels, who will be taking on Indian Head on Saturday in their provincial quarter-final after defeating Humboldt this past weekend 43-15.
