Northern Saskatchewan Football Cancels Season

Due to the recent upswing of Covid cases around the country and in  Saskatchewan, the Northern Saskatchewan Football season will not happen.

 

The league officials met with the Saskatchewan Health Authority and the different school boards from the northern centers and decided not to put anyone's health at risk and will not pursue a season this fall.

 

This was tough news for the Creighton Kodiaks who were returning a strong contingent of players from last season and now many seniors will graduate without a chance to compete for a league title.

 

Ryan Karakochuk, the Head Coach of the Kodiaks was in the CFAR studio this past Friday and talked about the cancellation of the season and how the league will go further from here.

 

We also had a chance to out our two cents in for everything else happening in the sports world right now.

Team White Beats Team Maroon 5 to 3

Despite a lack of atmosphere, a spirited affair went down at the Whitney Forum Sunday afternoon for the annual Flin Flon Bomber Maroon and White intersquad game.

 

In front of a crowd of approximately 20 fans composed of billet parents -  lineups entirely composed of newcomers showed off their ability. The game featured a unique format of two 30 minute halves.

 

Hunter Lolacher (03) got the start in net for Team White while Max Hildebrand (04) was in between the pipes for Team Maroon.

 

Team White’s Nathan Flodde(03) kicked off the scoring with a marker just before the midway point of the first half assisted by Jakin Lawrence (04). Jordan Pfoh (02) responded for Team Maroon approximately three minutes later with a feed from Adam Beamin (05) who has been a defensive stand out during camp.

 

If crunch of the game awards were to be handed out, one would have to go to a hip check late in the 1st half as Marek Schneider (03) of Team Maroon almost sent Nate Gagne into his own Team White Bench.

 

 

New netminders were brought in for the 2nd half with Jared Thompson (02)  in goal for Team White and Justin Duck (03) being the netminder for Team Maroon.

 

Things opened up early  with Cole Duerreault (02) scoring for Team White, assisted by Ashton Ferstrer (03)  which was quickly responded by Nate Gagne’s (02) goal for the Maroons with assists from Kylynn Olafson (04) and Morgan Daneiluk (03).

 

Fireworks flew with the game’s lone fight as Hassen Himour (02) of Team White dropped the gloves with Justin Lies of Team Maroon in a short but energetic scrap. Lies went on to score moments later  with an assist from Jordan Pfoh (02)

 

The highlight reel goal of the game came from Ashton Ferster of Team White who was able to put a breakaway goal past Dueck for the game winner. Himour added an empty netter before time ran out to give Team White the 5-3 victory.
