The Saber Football team’s year ended on October 29th in Spiritwood with a close 63-59 loss in the Provincial Quarter Finals.
Spiritwood dominated the first half and led 43-20 at the break. The Sabers put a scare into the hometown crowd and thrilled the many Saber supporters who travelled to the game with a spirited comeback that fell only 4 points short. Alex led the touchdown parade with 3 and just under 300 yards in receiving. Cody, Connor, and Josh had 2 touchdowns each. It was a huge passing day for the offence with Josh throwing for 571 yards.
The defence, which had struggled in the first half against a much larger Spiritwood offence, came up with multiple big plays and stops to put the team in a position to win. Joe led the defence and Michael showing incredible speed and determination.
Overall it was a great year for a young Saber club who ended with a 4 win – 3 loss record. We would like to thank and congratulate our graduating players for their leadership and hard work: Tanner , Nicholas, Alex, Connor, Brayden, Joe, and Brayden
