ESTEVAN - The Estevan Kinette Club U18 Viragos suffered a 43-8 loss to the Moosomin Generals Saturday in Moose Jaw.

Morgan Hase had the lone touchdown for the Viragos with a 70-yard run in the second quarter. The Viragos added a two-point convert after her romp. Moosomin led 22-8 at halftime, but the Viragos ran into injuries in the second half.

"The girls played hard right to the end, and there was no quit in them," said head coach Mark Tribiger.

Hase hurt her shoulder, and Emily Greening, the team's captain and starting guard, suffered a knee sprain that will sideline her for the rest of the season.

The Viragos' next game will be Sept. 23 when they host Regina at the Dana Quewezance Memorial Field at Woodlawn Athletic Park. The game starts at 6 p.m.


The Estevan Comprehensive School Elecs football team dropped to 0-2 on the season after losing 62-0 at the Yorkton Regional High School Raider Gridders on Saturday.

The Gridders are one of the top teams in the league.

Coach Mark Schott said that despite the losses and the scores to open the season, the Elecs showed improvement from game to game. He believes the offence did a better job of moving the ball against Yorkton than they did in their season-opener against the Weyburn Comprehensive School Eagles.

The defense was put in some difficult situations in terms of field position, but forced a few turnovers on downs and recovered a fumble.

Special teams units made adjustments after early mistakes and performed better later in the game, he said.

ECS will visit Moose Jaw's A.E. Peacock Tornadoes on Sept. 23.


The Estevan Coldwell Banker Choice Real Estate U12 Chargers lost 39-0 to the Moose Jaw Spartans on Saturday in Moose Jaw.

Coach James Haagsman noted they had a lot of players who couldn't make the game due to AA hockey tryouts, leaving them with the minimum number of players.

The Chargers' next game will be Sept. 23 when they host the Weyburn Ravens at 11 a.m.
