It was the game that everybody wanted to see this past Saturday as the Creighton Kodiaks would battle the Cumberland House Islanders for the Ralph Pilz Trophy in Prince Albert.


The game delivered all the hype going in as Creighton would score the winning touch down with just 26 seconds remaining in regulation to stun Cumberland House 46 to 38 for their first championship in three seasons.


Cumberland was the favorite and defending back to back champion which had beat the Kodiaks in their last three meetings including last year's final.


Blake Alexander had a sensational game throwing for almost 300 yards, adding three touchdown passes and running in two for majors to help his team to the Northern Saskatchewan Football Championship.


Aidan Collard was his favorite  target, hauling in three td's including the game winner with less than thirty seconds on the clock.  


Austin McLean scored the other touchdown.


This was a nail biter all the way through with Cumberland leading 16 to 8 after 1, the game was tied at 24 at the half and all even at 32 after 3.


Creighton had a great fourth quarter and stepped it up defensively stifling the Islander offense.


This is the Kodiak's first championship in three years and third total in their 5 year history.


Creighton will now move on to the Provincial bracket and will host Birch Hills this Saturday at the Creighton Field.


Kick off is expected to be 3pm, MB time but could be subject to change.


We will have more on the Kodiak Football Report this Tuesday at 3:30.
