High School Football
Clear skies and mild temperatures set the stage for a fabulous afternoon of football at McCall Field last Saturday when the Indian Head Broncs hosted the Tisdale Tornados for a provincial quarter-final game.
Enthusiastic fans crowded along the sidelines to cheer on the two teams. Oneida Woidyla, whose three sons have played for the Broncs, held up signs with a large letter “D” and a little picket fence. She started the chant, “’D’ What?” and the crowd loudly responded with “Defence!”
Both teams fought hard to gain ground as the game proceeded. By the middle of the third quarter, the score was 42 to 21 in the Broncs’ favor. The Tornados were inches away from the goal line as they made another play, with just a few seconds left in the quarter. However, Broncs’ player Ethan Moss intercepted the ball and made it thirty yards down the field in the opposite direction before being tackled.
Early in the fourth quarter, the Broncs scored another touchdown and later Maguire Kopp completed the pass to Conner Webster who stood at the end zone, bring the Broncs’ score to 54. Near the end of the game, Tisdale scored another touchdown and the point after was good, leading to a final score of 54 to 28.
Indian Head will host the provincial semi-finals on Saturday, Nov. 5 at 1 p.m. The Broncs will play against the Fort Qu’Appelle Bison, who beat the Humboldt Mohawks, 24 to 7, at their game last Saturday, Oct. 29.
