Another one bites the dust!! Except… it was anything but dusty when the St. Paul Bengals finished up the regular season with a big 64 to 14 win over Wainwright this past Sunday down in Wainwright.
The monsoon rains never stopped the whole day, making the ball and footing very greasy during the game; but the Bengal boys still managed another huge win, giving them second place in the league and a bye in the first round of the playoffs.
The slippery Elk Point receiver ‘Ty Cobb’ Smereka receiving a short touchdown pass giving the Bengals the first touchdown of the game at 8.38 of the first quarter. The Bengals coaching staff really created a monster when they decided to give Odin’ the Wall’ Smith the ball to carry. He’s like a bowling ball rolling down a hill gaining momentum and taking down pins. He carried the ball into the end zone for two touchdowns in the second half of this game. ‘Silent Sam ‘ Henderson has been solid all year on the defense , teaming up with ‘Ty Cobb’ getting in on a quite a few tackles in this game. The Bengals will have lots of time to heal up their war wounds. They have the next two weekends off while they charge their batteries, do practice, prepare a game plan to take on the winner of one of the quarter finals. The first place team in the league, Lloydminister is also sitting on the sidelines with a bye.
Meanwhile down at rink… the A. G. Ross Arena the plant is now up and running . Floods are happening as we speak and by next week the kids will be on the ice for their first practice. Everyone has been chomping at the bit to hit the ice and it won’t be too long now… let the games begin!
Baseball boring?? Not a chance! Intense yes! Millions of Canadians will be watching the Blue Jays tonight with their fingers crossed. The boys in blue can do this!!!!!!!!
And now for the K. A. Campbell quote of the week. ‘ It’s pitching, hitting and defense that wins. Any two can win. All three make you unbeatable.’ -Joe Garagiola
