The Yorkton Lady Gridders kept the final close ion Moosomin Sunday.
YORKTON - The Yorkton Lady Gridders came up just a bit short in their quest to win the inaugural Prairie Girls Football League championship. 

The Gridders were in Moosomin Sunday for the final facing the Generals, the only team to chalk up a win against Yorkton in the regular season. 

And they would add the championship in a close fought contest edging Yorkton 26-18. 

Yorkton head coach Tyrell MacLean said it was a tough loss to take. 

“It’s very disappointing. I thought we were the better team – I know we were the better team. It just didn’t work for us,” he said Monday morning. “. . . It was a tough ride home.” 

In spite of MacLean’s assertion, they were the better team, the Generals controlled Sunday’s final. 

“We trailed the whole game,” he said. “But it was close.” 

The Gridders should be back in the hunt in 2022, losing only seven players to graduation and potentially returning more than 20. 

MacLean said the foundation is there for next year, but conceded the team is “losing some big pieces” so there will be a need for some players to step into bigger roles next season.
