Cumberland House Wins Back to Back Ralph Pilz Trophies as Northern Champs

The Cumberland House Islanders completed a perfect season with a victory over the Sandy Bay T- Wolves on Saturday, October 20th. The first half of the game was a close affair with Drake Carriere of the Islanders,  opening the scoring with a long touchdown run in the first quarter. He added another before Gaston McDonald of the T-Wolves made a fantastic touchdown catch to make the score 16-8 at half time for Cumberland.

Thanks to the over 200 fans from all over northern Saskatchewan who made their way to the game, especially those from Cumberland House and Sandy Bay. Officials who worked the game could not believe the number of fans, their respectful enthusiasm and support they gave for all players on the field. We are grateful to have the best football fans in Saskatchewan!

Looking forward to provincials next week, on Saturday, October 27, Cumberland House will be hosting the Hague Panthers while the Sandy Bay T-Wolves will be travelling to Wakaw to take on the Warriors. Good luck to both teams as they represent northern Saskatchewan!

Have a great week!
