Last-minute win ends Lady Gridder season

The Yorkton Lady Gridders wrapped up their fall season in Regina in what can only be described as an old-fashioned barn burner.

“It was a wild game,” said Yorkton coach Tyrell MacLean. “We trailed all game.”

But Canadian football is never over until it’s over, and that was the case in Regina.

“We scored a touchdown with 46-seconds left to essentially tie it,” said MacLean.

“And, we ran in the extra points for the win.”

The final score was 33-32.

The win gave Yorkton top spot in the four team league with a 5-1 record, the only loss coming a week earlier against Moosomin.

“It couldn’t have been scripted any better. It was a storybook ending,” said MacLean. “The girls were right into it. The parents were into it. They’re going to remember it forever.”

It was a game MacLean said he too was excited to be part of.

“It was probably the most exciting thing I’ve ever been involved is as a coach in sports,” he said.
