Shock in football final

The Shock will now play for the Midget Tier I Championship May 19 against the only team to beat the Shock (13-8), the Edmonton Mustangs.


After playing their last game April 25 (a game was cancelled due to heavy snow), the Battle River Shock shook off the rust and beat the Parkland (Spruce Grove) Outlaws 16-2 at Clarke Park to finish off the regular season at 4-1.

The Shock completed the season with the top ranked defence and it showed May 16. Logan Sabourin (Notre Dame) had two sacks and forced a fumble, Colton Hutchinson (Wetaskiwin) had a 34-yard interception return, and Zach Semanuik (Wetaskiwin) had a fumble recovery. The unit hasn’t given up a touchdown in two games.

It was a three-headed running game that kept the chains moving with Dale McDonald (Notre Dame) scoring on a 25-yard run, Skyler Sargeant (Lacombe) on a 21-yard run, and Stas McPhail (Hunting Hills) making big gains in the fourth quarter.

The Shock will now play for the Midget Tier I Championship May 19 against the only team to beat the Shock (13-8), the Edmonton Mustangs. The game begins at 8 p.m. at Foote Field in Edmonton.
