Minor football hosts one-day tourney

The Prince Albert Minor Football Association held a mini-tournament on Saturday and although thunder and lightning forced the event to be finished before the final games that were scheduled could be played, it was a great experience for everyone who competed. There were two divisions – pee wee (Grades 5&6) and bantam (Grades 7&8) – with each team to play against the other on a 40-by-40 yard field that also featured 10-yard end zones. The games, which had six players on either side of the ball, allowed for every team to have chances both on offence and defence with coaches staying on the field to offer instruction. Prince Albert River Riders had three teams in the pee wee division and two more in the bantam group with Big River and Kindersley sending one team each for each division.
