WEYBURN – The annual Weyburn Comp Eagles’ Friday Night Lights game was the best game of the season so far for the south rural league. The undefeated Eagles and the undefeated Moose Jaw Central Cyclones met on the WMF field for a first-place showdown on a windy rainy night under the lights.

With a crowd that spanned from goal line to goal line and minor football players playing some pick up in the end zones, a packed house watched these two teams go toe to toe for the first two quarters with the defenses ruling the day and Weyburn taking a 1-0 lead into halftime off a punt single by Conner Kerr.

The second half saw both teams open it up a little it more after some halftime adjustments, but the Eagles could only muster a field goal and a safety from the Cyclone defense, taking a 6-0 lead into the fourth quarter.

Finally in the fourth quarter the Eagles broke through with a 29-yard touchdown pass from Kerr to Nolan Uhren to push the score to 13-0. A few drives later the Eagles struck again when Kerr broke to the outside on a 51-yard run down the sidelines to the end zone to make the score 20-0.

Before the end the defense forced another Cyclone safety and a 22-0 final score win for the Eagles.

It was a huge day for the defense on Friday as they held the top rusher in the league from Moose Jaw to only 70 yards rushing and only 102 yards as a team. As well, the Eagles defense held the potent passing game of the Cyclones to only 98 yards passing and prevented them from getting to the red zone all game.

Stat leaders and big plays included the following: Conner Kerr passing had 14 completions for 181 yards; Owen Istace had 14 carries for 78 yards; Nolan Uhren made four catches for 89 yards; Alex Junk had seven tackles; Chace Kradovill had six tackles and a deflection; and Brody Walter had two tackles, one deflection and the biggest hit of the night.

The Eagles’ next home game was on Tuesday when the Junior varsity team hosted Estevan and Moose Jaw Central on Darold Kot Field. The Senior Eagles will host again on Saturday, Sept. 30 at 1 p.m., when they host the Moose Jaw A.E. Peacock Tornadoes at Darold Kot Field.
