Bandits Nearly Steal One!
The Leduc Tigers Football Team had been cruising right along in the Metro City Football Conference with four straight victories and first place when they met up with the Beaumont Bandits on Friday Oct. 12th.
Beaumont had lost to Leduc in exhibition play 31-0 and maybe the Tigers underestimated the team from Beaumont, as the game was close throughout.
Going into the game the Beaumont was also undefeated in conference play. In the end the Tigers were able to hold off the Bandits and prevent them from stealing the game as they edged the Bandits 20 to 13.
The win secures first place for the Leduc Tigers and places them in a conference’s semifinal game on Friday Oct 26th against the winner of the quarterfinals. Meanwhile Beaumont has one game remaining in conference play against Fort Saskatchewan. A victory will guarantee a second place finish for Beaumont and a semifinal games against either St Francis Xavier or Holy Trinity.
The Miles Conference Championships could very well see a rematch of the Bandits and the Tigers on Saturday Nov. 3rd. Maybe this time the Bandits complete the caper!
