The 3-2 Gridders were up against the 4-1 Regina Bears.
In the first four games of the season, the Bears shutout three of their opponents and only allowed six points.
But, Sunday the Gridder offence would erupt and Yorkton would defeat the Bears 51-28.
“I still wasn’t sure what our identity was as a football team. We challenged the kids in the locker room. After that amazing performance, beginning to end, I think we can define ourselves as a really good football team,” offered coach Mark Schendel.
“As coaches, we’re beaming with pride, we’re so proud of these committed, young players.”
The victory now moves the Gridders into second place in the nine-team league with one regular season game remaining.
The Atom Gridders travel to Regina Saturday to play the Lions at 3:45.
