BJM 33, Wal­ter Murray 7

The Bishop Ma­honey Saints re­mained un­de­feated in the Saskatoon High School Foot­ball League by down­ing the Wal­ter Murray Ma­raud­ers 33-7 at Gordie Howe Bowl on Fri­day un­der the lights.

“Our defence was in­tense, phys­i­cal, and over­all played a ter­rific game,” said Bishop Ma­honey head coach Kirby Frey.

A sack two min­utes into the game knocked Murray start­ing quar­ter­back Bray­don York out of the game, putting a thorn in the Ma­raud­ers of­fence. Make that a Bren­dan Thorne. He de­liv­ered the sack for the Saints and hounded the Ma­raud­ers through­out the game.

A 16-yard field goal by Rob capped the Saints’ open­ing drive.

Both teams tried to get some­thing go­ing by try­ing low-per­cent­age, third-down gam­bles. Both teams failed.

Brudehl went 10-of-21 for 264 yards. Bishop Ma­honey’s open­ing drive in the sec­ond half also pro­duced a field goal, this time a 35-yarder by Che­lak.

Brudehl hooked up with Sam An­der­son for a pair of big passes, both lead­ing to touch­down­son­thenextplay.That­bumped the score to 27-0 by the six-minute mark of the fourth quar­ter.

Wal­ter Murray cap­i­tal­ized on a Car­son Brown punt block with a play-ac­tion touch­down re­cep­tion by David Bur­lock to make it 27-7 with two min­utes re­main­ing.

The Saints pro­duced 408 yards of­fence, dou­bling the Ma­raud­ers’ 201 yards.

The Saints (5-0) lead the North Di­vi­sion.

Wal­ter Murray (2-2) is in fourth place.


Mar­ion Gra­ham 39, N.B. 0

With a 39-0 win over the North Bat­tle­ford Vik­ings, the Mar­ion Gra­ham Fal­cons keep up their pur­suit of top spot in the North Di­vi­sion.

The Fal­cons’ defence held the Vik­ings to 99 yards net of­fence.

St. Joes 49, P.A. 25

The bat­tle for fourth place in the North was won by the St. Joseph Guardians (23), who de­feated the Prince Al­bert Carl­ton Cru­saders 49-25.

It looked like St. Joseph was go­ing to run away with the game in the first half when it went up 17-6. How­ever, Prince Al­bert tied it at 18-18 early in the third quar­ter.

St. Joseph then racked up four touch­downs and a field goal to put the game on ice.
