St. Paul Lions pick up win over Bonnyville: Football Roundup

The St. Paul Lions defence roared last Thursday in a 43-0 shutout against the Bonnyville Voyageurs. 

St. Paul football fans were treated to the big game right before Thanksgiving weekend, which put the Lions at 2-2 for the season. 

The loss puts the Bonnyville Voyageurs at 0-4 for the season and will search for their first win against the strong Holy Rosary Raiders who are 4-0. 

Meanwhile, the Lions will travel to Cold Lake to play the Royals. 

The Royals put up a good fight against the Lloyd Comp Barons last Thursday, in the end falling 46-14. 

With each team at 2-2, the regional rivals could decide who gets the edge in the Wheatland Football League standings when they kickoff Friday evening at 4:00pm at Tom Varghese Field. 

Halftime vs the Voyageurs: Jessie Irwin, Henry Peters, Tanner Blake
