Weyburn handed Yorkton its only two losses on the season.
YORKTON - The Yorkton Regional High School Raider Gridders had only one blemish on the record in the regular season, a one-point loss in Weyburn on opening day. 

As fate would have it the Raiders Gridders headed to Weyburn Saturday to face the same team in the league final. 

And, for the local Gridders the result was the same, albeit by a bigger margin, losing to Weyburn 21-7. 

“They scored right at the end of the game,” said Yorkton head coach Roby Sharpe, adding it was “two pretty evenly marched teams,” going at it in the final. 

The loss was of course “frustrating,” said Sharpe. 

“It was one of those things, you play on the road you feel you get a few calls against you.” 

The big call was a touchdown by Yorkton called back on a hold. 

But it was just one of those days of little misses, observed Sharpe, noting a couple of missed field goals, and some open receivers missed because of the wind. 

“It was right there for us, we just missed a few plays,” said Sharpe. 

The Raider Gridders should be back in the hunt in 2022 graduating only eight players.  

“We’re going to be good again for sure,” said Sharpe.
