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.
