SWAC teams in­volved in foot­ball are near­ing the end of the reg­u­lar league play. Just one or two games left be­fore the play­offs.

Fri­day, Sept 28 was a busy day for nine-man foot­ball. Shau­navon Shad­ows hosted Notre Dame and lost (45-29). In­dian Head was in Maple Creek for our other game. The home­town Red­men lost 55-24. Gull Lake hosted Out­look LCBI on Satur­day, Sept 29. It was a very close game, but Gull Lake had to take the loss (26-24).

The SCCHS Colts had a foot­ball game against Este­van on Satur­day, Sept 29. They came away with a big 51-15 win. The Colts move to 4-1 in league play.

You have your choice of games on Thurs­day, Oct 4. Gull Lake will host Han­ley in six-man ac­tion. Kick­off is at 4:00. It will be Shau­navon host­ing Maple Creek “un­der the lights”. Game time is 7:30. The last reg­u­lar sea­son game for the SCCHS Colts is on Thurs­day, Oct 4, at home, against York­ton. Game time is 4:00.

The Ar­dens and Colts soc­cer teams had no sched­uled league games this past week. Since Her­bert soc­cer teams are not in a 7 vs 7 league, ex­hi­bi­tion games were or­ga­nized against SCCHS teams. What a great op­por­tu­nity for the SCCHS teams to work on con­di­tion­ing in the wide open 7 vs 7 game and the Her­bert teams had an op­por­tu­nity to play against a cou­ple of the tough­est teams in the prov­ince.

Her­bert boys lost 8-1 to the Colts and the Ar­den’s de­feated the Her­bert girl’s’ team 8-0. Her­bert girls also played an ex­hi­bi­tion game against LCBI. They fought their way to a 1-1 tie. Her­bert boy’s soc­cer team had two more ex­hi­bi­tion games on the week­end. They played to a 1-1 draw against May­mont and then played LCBI and lost (4-1).

The Soc­cer Colts host MJ Vanier on Wed­nes­day, Oct 2 and the Ar­den’s host MJ Vanier girls on Thurs­day, Oct 3. Note,the Ar­den’s game is a change from the orig­i­nal schedule. These are the last reg­u­lar sea­son league games for the SCCHS teams. Play­offs for the MJ soc­cer league will be start­ing the week of Oct 9.

The Sask High School Ath­letic As­so­ci­a­tion has given the South­West two re­gional soc­cer tour­na­ments (first step in prov. play downs). Swift Cur­rent Ar­dens are host­ing an 11 vs 11 girls, re­gional and Her­bert boys are host­ing a 7 vs 7 re­gional. Both tour­na­ments take place Oct. 20.

The SWAC se­nior girls’ vol­ley­ball league con­tin­ues. Re­sults of week 2 se­nior girl’s league (best of 3 sets).

SWAC is up­ping its so­cial me­dia pres­ence. We have a twit­ter ac­count (@swac­sports), In­sta­gram ac­count (swac­sports) and a SWAC Sports Face­book page. SWAC wel­comes ev­ery­one to fol­low us and keep up on sport­ing events in the south­west.

Spe­cial shout-out to all our of­fi­cials in foot­ball, soc­cer and vol­ley­ball. None of our fall sports could hap­pen with­out the ded­i­ca­tion of our of­fi­cials. It is also great to see all the sup­port from our SWAC schools and com­mu­ni­ties at the var­i­ous ath­letic events.

Our SWAC kids love play­ing for their fans! If you haven’t taken in a SWAC sport­ing ac­tiv­ity lately, I en­cour­age you to check it out.
