Saskatoon Hilltops 19
Winnipeg Rifles 10

The defending Prairie Conference champion Saskatoon Hilltops got off on the right foot with a nine-point victory on Sunday, scoring just one touchdown. 

Offensively they gathered 411 total yards, 233 of which came on the ground.  Boston Davidsen led the way with 162 yards on 27 carries and scored the lone touchdown which came in the second quarter.  The only other scoring came off the foot of kicker Connor Green who booted four field goals including a 46-yarder.   Quarterback Damon Dutton was 17 of 27 for 185 yards spreading the ball to eight different receivers. 

The Hilltops defence pitched a second half shutout as Konnor Johnson led the way with four tackles, had a sack, picked off a pass and had two knockdowns.   Joe Yausie led his club with eight tackles and Daylen Hartz had two sacks.

The Rifles did move the ball through the air as quarterback Bryson McNeil completed 26 passes for 307 yards and hit Eric Adams for a touchdown. 

Defensively Kyle Chorney had a game high nine solo tackles and added a pair of assisted stops and Spenser Pilon had the team’s lone sack. 

Next week the Hilltops (1-0) host the Edmonton Huskies (1-0) and the Rifles (0-1) are back in Saskatchewan to meet the Regina Thunder (1-0).

Regina Thunder 57
Edmonton Wildcats 14

It was a thunderous victory on Sunday for the Regina Thunder amassing 601 yards of total offence with a well-balanced attack. 

Through the air quarterback Carter Shewchuk and Carter Moberg combined for 370 yards and four touchdowns.  Isaac Foord caught nine passes for 179 yards and three of those majors while Zak Woidyla caught the other.   On the ground Ryland Leichert rumbled 13 times for 109 yards and had a touchdown.  Sadik Sadik was solid with a pair of touchdowns on six carries and Keane Szabo pounded in from a yard out. 

The Wildcats did not have much of an answer and did their touchdown scoring in the bookend quarters.  In the first Declan Mullin got into the endzone, then Devin Desormeau scored in the fourth with under three minutes to go.

One of their bright spots on the defensive side was DB Tanner Shaw who intercepted two passes to complement his three solo tackles. 

Next week the Thunder (1-0) will welcome the Winnipeg Rifles (0-1) and the Wildcats (0-1) will stay on the road and visit the Calgary Colts (0-1).

Edmonton Huskies 37
Calgary Colts 17

The Edmonton Huskies got off on the right foot on Sunday with a lopsided win over the Calgary Colts.  They scored 27 of their 37 points in the first half and never looked back.

Running back Alex Gayle was unstoppable scoring all four of the Huskies touchdowns on 24 carries and 117 yards.   A pair of quarterbacks completed just 10 passes but gained 210 yards.

Defensively the Huskies forced nine turnovers highlighted by six interceptions.  Two of those interceptions were made by Masen Lane and Roman Iwuc had a big game with an interception, three tackles and two assisted stops. 

The Colts tried to battle but any momentum they had was thwarted by a turnover.  The offence did score two passing touchdowns as quarterback Nick Kennedy found Cody Anglo for both majors.

This coming weekend the Huskies (1-0) will face the Hilltops (1-0) in Saskatoon while the Colts (0-1) host the Edmonton Wildcats (0-1).
