Locals score at Football Alberta’s 30th Senior Bowl

Blustery May Long Weekend conditions weren’t enough to stop the 30th annual Senior Bowl. Alberta Football’s showcase of graduating grade 12 talent brought a provincial north and south team to Hellard Field in Shouldice Park, Calgary. Thanks to the help of a local player, Team North prevailed with a score of 23-14 before a packed house of 1,246 spectators.

The South opened the scoring with an 80-yard touchdown run from Medicine Hat tailback Kaden Wagner but it was all North from there with 23 unanswered points. Touchdowns from quarterback Silas Fagnan of Bonnyville and a scoop and score from Holy Rosary High School defensive end Dominic Caco sandwiched around three field goals from Edmonton’s Ethan Hartman all helped the North gain a lead.

The South made it interesting late with a touchdown pass from Calgary quarterback K.J. Stembridge to Medicine Hat’s Lachlan Hardiker early in the fourth to pull within 9 points. The North ran out the clock to preserve the victory. The M.V.P.’s of the game were Fagnan for the North and defensive back/kicker Jonathan Guistini from Notre Dame in Calgary for the South. In 30 years of history, the South continues to lead the series 16-13-1.

Earlier in the day in the Junior Bowl for U16 players, the South made a comeback capped by an 18 yard field goal with 2 minutes left to take the game 14-13. As well, in the 6-Man All-Star Game held in Lacombe, the South prevailed over the North 44-20.
