Kodiaks Season Comes To An End

 It was a great effort and great season for the Creighton Kodiak 6 man football team which saw their season come to an end after a 41 to 17 defeat at the hands of the Birch Hills Marauders this past Saturday.

 

Creighton earned the right to host the Saskatchewan Provincial Quarter Final after winning the Ralph Pilz Trophy in Prince Albert just a few days before.

 

The Creighton Field was buzzing with well over 300 spectators in attendance.

 

Creighton started well with Blake Alexander kicking a 70 yard single and he  followed that up with a 30 yard strike to Austin McLean.

 

The Kodiaks were also able to convert the two point convert and trailed 14 to 9 at the half.

 

Creighton came out with lots of emotion to start the third quarter and after Aidan Collard ran back a kick-off over 70 yards to the Marauder 5 yard line, Evan Madarash ran in for the touch down.

 

With the score 20 to 17 in favour of the Marauders early in the fourth quarter, Creighton struggled to move the ball with penalties and a couple of turn overs on downs.

 

Birch Hills took advantage of good field position and punched in a couple of late td's to put the game out of reach.

 

Head Coach Ryan Karakochuk had this to say after the game. " Over all I am happy, we had a good season. I am also a little disappointed for they boys who worked so hard this week and played so hard. At the end of the day football can be a cruel sport some times and it came down to a couple of plays and they made them and unfortunately we didn't."

 

The Kodiaks want to thank everybody for their great support this past season and appreciate the great fans and sponsors for making it a season to remember.
