The football season is winding down for Prince Albert teams and for at least one local team, a championship is in their sights.

The bantam River Riders were the only Prince Albert team to record a victory last week and that win leaves the team undefeated through six games (4-0-2) with a first-place showdown against the Schoenhals Titans scheduled for Wednesday in Saskatoon.

Following is a summary of what the Prince Albert teams did on the gridiron in the last seven days.

                                                Bantam River Riders

The bantam River Riders scored early and often as they cruised to a 47-0 triumph over the Babineau Warriors in a game played on Wednesday in Saskatoon.

Jordan Solomon once again dominated the scoresheet as he rushed for 254 yards on 12 carries and scored four touchdowns. Solomon also kicked three converts, scored one two-point conversion and added a single on a kick that sailed through the end zone.

Bryson Simpson and Landon Aimoe also scored touchdowns for the River Riders, who will have one more game on the regular schedule after Wednesday’s clash with Schoenhals and that will be at 3 p.m. at Prime Ministers’ Park on Sunday when they will host the Tinkler Raiders from Saskatoon.

                                                Carlton Crusaders

Jullian Bird passed for 212 yards and scored one touchdown and Dave Chettri hauled in six passes for 170 yards and another major, but it wasn’t enough as the Crusaders fell 34-21 to the Bethlehem Stars in Saskatoon on Thursday.

Deveraux Gatin added the other touchdown for the Crusaders, who fall to 2-3 on the season and will be back in Saskatoon on Friday to take on Marion Graham.

The Crusaders will complete the regular season on Oct. 19 in the inaugural Canadian Tire Classic against the St. Mary Marauders.

                                                PACI Golden Bears

After a promising start to the Carleton Six-Man Football League where the Golden Bears posted three straight victories, the team has fallen on tough times of late losing their last two with the most recent being a 62-25 setback to the Aberdeen Crusaders.

Riley Regnier was the offensive star for PACI in the game against Aberdeen scoring a pair of touchdowns while Alex Ugarkovic added another.

The Golden Bears have a bye this week, but will complete the regular schedule on Oct. 18 when they travel to Rosthern.

                                                St. Mary Marauders

The Marauders dropped their third straight when they were defeated 28-18 by the St. Joseph’s Guardians on Thursday in Saskatoon.

Scoring statistics were unavailable, but the loss leaves St. Mary with a 1-4 record with a game in Saskatoon on Thursday against Aden Bowman and the Canadian Tire Classic against Carlton on Oct. 19 remaining on the schedule.

                                                Pee Wee River Riders

It was another tough week for the pee wee River Riders who lost 31-0 to the Schoenhals Titans on Wednesday in Saskatoon. It was the sixth straight loss for the pee wee River Riders and they will try and get their first win of the season on Wednesday when they are back in Saskatoon to take on the Arns Falcons.

The pee wee River Riders will complete the regular season on Sunday when they will host the Tinkler Raiders at 1 p.m. at Prime Ministers’ Park.
