YORKTON - The Yorkton Lady Gridders football team is headed to the inaugural Prairie Girls Football League championship. 

The Lady Gridders earned their berth in the final, to be held in Moosomin this Sunday, by defeating Regina 20-12 at Kinsmen Century Field on the weekend. 

“It was a closer game than I would have liked,” said Yorkton head coach Tyrell MacLean, but he added being as close as it was made it “a good, competitive game for both teams.” 

In the second half Regina even inched ahead of the home side at one point. 

“In the second half we gave up a punt return for a touchdown,” said MacLean. 

The big strike came midway through the third quarter, but the Lady Gridders dug in after that. 

“We responded right away,” said MacLean, adding the Gridders “marched the field” for a score, with the extra point putting Yorkton up 13-12. 

The Lady Gridders would add one more converted TD for the win. 

“Our offence played really well,” said MacLean, adding even when they didn’t get to the end zone they were moving the ball. “We chewed up a lot of clock.”
