Bucs’ hammer Stars to solidify second

Central Alberta’s senior football club to battle at home for first place Aug. 11

It was yet another roll to victory for the Central Alberta Buccaneers, this time on the road.

For the third straight week, the Buc’s played a strong overall game and pummelled the Stars in St. Albert by a count of 62-6.

“They are performances we’ve come to expect out of our quarterback and receivers. We kind of got a little bit more run game action happening and then our defence, aside from one little error, played almost a perfect game,” said offensive lineman Vince Roth.

The victory, the second lopsided win over the Stars this season, leaves the Buc’s with a stranglehold on second place in the Alberta Football League (AFL) with a 6-1 record.

However, the biggest test of the season for the club will come this week in the team’s final home game of the season.

The Buc’s will host the Fort McMurray Monarchs who have dominated the league so far, unbeaten in their seven games so far and the only club to upset the Buc’s — courtesy a 32-10 win in Fort Mac in week two on June 2.

Game time slated for 6 p.m. kickoff at Setters Place in Great Chief Park in Red Deer on Aug. 11.

“(This game) will be in support of the Red Deer Food Bank, so we’ll be accepting donations, cash or food at the gate,” Roth added.

“More than likely, it will be a preview of the league championship game.”
