SVRSS Tigers shut out Parkwest


The SVRSS Tigers Football team hosted their third home game of the season last Thursday against the Parkwest Outlaws. This is also the second time the Tigers faced off against the Outlaws this season.
“This was our third home game and the energy was really good all around,” said SVRSS Tigers Football Coach Justin Petelski. “The Tigers enjoy playing at home and they seemed ready to go. The last time we played in Shoal Lake, we won by a lot. We thought they may have improved since then, but if we played well, the score would take care of itself.”
The Tigers pounced on the first quarter and took the field by storm.
“We come out rolling on both sides of the ball, scored each time we had the ball on offence,” said Petelski. “The score after the first quarter was 34-0 in our favour.”
Rolling into the second quarter, the Tigers continued their stronghold against the Outlaws and dominated that half as well.
“Much of the second quarter was similar to the first quarter,” said Petelski. “Kylan Nunn had an interception for a touchdown. Our defence continued to stuff everything they tried to do and we shut them out with a score of 48-0 at the half.
“Tyan Mykula started the second half off in style with a 75-yard kick return touchdown. From there we had different players in different positions in the second half and got everyone into the game. Even with younger players in we were doing very well. Maryk Weiler-Smith jumped on a fumble in the endzone for a defensive touchdown. We were leading 76-0 after the third quarter.”
The final quarter allowed the Tigers to continue playing all their players on the team and the team took home another victory.
“A lot of nice plays from a lot of our younger players happened during this game,” said Petelski. “Brayden Block and Diezel Boychuk got a few carries and some of the young guys on the team got a chance on defence. Overall it was a really good second half and, as a result, the future looks bright for the Tigers.
“It was pretty cold that day, so we had a lesser crowd than previous games, but very loud and supportive. The final score was 83-0 and I’m happy with all aspects, offence, defence, special teams and the young group.”
The Tiger's next game is on Saturday in Virden at 3 p.m. versus Moosomin. It will be the last regular-season game before the playoffs.
