Game Notes

Game Summary

The rematch of the battle between the Eastern and Western ’Riders took place Wednesday night at Taylor Field in Regina. Saskatchewan won the first match up this year and were looking to move into a tie in the standings with Ottawa with another victory. Ottawa opened the scoring on the third play of the game. Saskatchewan QB Warren Jones threw towards Donald Narcisse but the ball was intercepted by Antonious Bonner who returned the ball 44 yards before fumbling. Brett Young recovered the ball for Ottawa and took it in for a touchdown. Wayne Lammle kicked the convert. At the midpoint of the quarter Dave Ridgway missed a 42 yard field goal attempt but got Saskatchewan on the board with a single. With time running out in the first quarter, Lammle kicked a 36 yard field goal to extend Ottawa’s lead. The western ’Riders came back in the second quarter. Jones took the ball in from the 1-yard line to cap a 9 play Saskatchewan drive. Ridgway kicked the convert and was called upon 5 minutes later to kick a 36 yard field goal to give Saskatchewan their first lead of the game. In the third quarter, Ottawa could only manage to put two field goals on the board while Saskatchewan scored two touchdowns. Both of Lammle’s field goals came from 34 yards out. Saskatchewan’s Darren Joseph scored one of the touchdowns on a 2 yard run. The other came on a 73 yard interception return by Aaron Ruffin. Ridgway kicked both converts. Saskatchewan extended their lead in the fourth quarter. Ridgway booted a 51 yard field goal early in the quarter, Ottawa punter Wayne Lammle gave up a safety, and Ridgway scored a single on a missed 38 yard field goal attempt. The final score was Saskatchewan 31 — Ottawa 16 giving both teams identical 2 and 7 records in the Northern Division.
