Foggy high school football double header quarter finals sees one local team advance
Brooks Bulletin

The high school football season is over for the Tier III Brooks Buffalos while the St. Joseph Crusaders 6-man team carries on following a weekend of quarter final matches.
On Saturday in the thick fog, the fourth ranked Crusaders easily defeated seventh ranked Cold Lake Assumption, 53-20.
The Crusaders advance to the semi finals in Lacombe on Nov. 18 at 11 a.m. where they will face the second ranked Breton Cougars for a spot at the Nov. 24 Alberta Provincial Bowl which will also be in Lacombe.
While the Crusaders fight for a spot on the provincial field, their nemesis, the top ranked Rimbey Spartans, will face the third ranked Millwoods Christian Royals as they compete to field a semi final team.
The Spartans and the Crusaders have met on the provincial field in 2015 and 2016. Each time the Brooks team carried home the 6-Man High School Province Championship flag.
Following the 6-man game, the Buffalos took to the field but had their hopes to advance dashed after their defeat at the hands of the Cochrane Cobras, 30-0.
“The final score really didn’t reflect the game or how close it was,” said Buffalos coach Braedon Cameron.
The Buffalos came within the two yard line a handful of times during the match but they just couldn’t manage to cross the end zone.
Although it is a difficult loss for the home team they did manage to minimize the Cobras damage to a single TD at the end of the first half.
“At the end of the first half we had about four chances within their 20 yard line to score,” he said.
Cameron said the players knew it would be a tight game.
“In the second half I think it was just a lack of not capitalizing on some chances. Those caught up with us,” he said.
