Peewee football teams end season with competitive final

Two Weyburn peewee football teams ended their season with a very competitive game, as they vied for the peewee championship of the Moose Jaw Minor Football League. The Crescent Point Energy Eagles won the championship, after a 55-54 triple overtime final against the PAR Contracting Ravens.
“I am so proud of my boys for their game,” said Jody Kerr, head coach for the Eagles. “It made me proud to watch them play their best game at the end of the season. Sharing that moment with them and especially my own son was very special. It was also special to have this game in Weyburn on our field in front of our fans. It was an added bonus for us and the Ravens.”
“From the point we found out we were going to play the Ravens, our Eagles believed they had it in them to win and they did what they needed to do to win although we knew it was not going to be easy,” said Kerr.
“The coaches and I challenged our players to play like there is no tomorrow and that's what we got. Ryder Knox was a beast for our offense and when we needed something to happen, we turned to him. He was our playmaker and when someone is running that well, you just have to keep feeding him the ball,” said Kerr.
“It says so much for Weyburn football that we as coaches can divide up the teams in June hoping that we see two equal teams in the league, and when we end our season in October our two squads play to the point of exhaustion going into a triple overtime thriller to decide the title,” said Kerr.
“We had everything in this game, including great defensive stands, big plays, long drives and no quit attitudes by both teams. All the skills these young athletes have worked on for the past few months have paid off,” said Kerr.
In the bantam league championships, the Weyburn bantam Young Fellows Falcons lost 20-12 to the Moose Jaw Raiders, during a game played in Moose Jaw on October 26. All three minor football teams will hold their year-end awards in November.
