Bucs move to 2-0!!
The Central Alberta Buccaneers hosted the defending National Champion Lloydminster Vandals Saturday evening at MEGlobal Athletic Park in Lacombe, and came away with an impressive 62-7 victory. The defence swarmed all night not giving the Vandals offence any time or space to get into a rhythm, while the offence moved the ball consistently scoring 5TD's. The Bucs special teams chipped in with 3 returns for TD's as well!!!! Stats to come.............
Bucs win season opener 34-7!!
The Buccaneers started the 2013 campaign off with a bang on Saturday night defeating the rival Edmonton Stallions 34-7 at home in Lacombe. It was an overcast evening where the Bucs put together a solid showing and controlled the game all night. QB Byron Stearns was flawless going 11 of 20 for 4TD's and not turning the ball over at all thanks to fantastic protection from the offensive line. RB/SB Jamie Blinkhorn and Receiver Chad Murray each had 2 TD's from Stearns' arm, Blinkhorn also added 85yds rushing on 12 carries. Tylor Johnson rounded out the scoring with 2 field goals and converted all 4 TD's.
The Bucs defense swarmed and wreaked havoc all game giving very little room for the Stallions offence to do anything. DL Dave Hodgess and Ian Keetch were in the backfield constantly each recording multiple sacks, while Fransisco Sierra recovered 2 fumbles!!! The secondary of Mark Fay, Tylor Johnson, Jordan Willie, Greg Fowler and Kenton Poelzer had lockdown coverage all game while also making plenty of tackles for losses.
Next up the Bucs host the defending National Champion Lloydminster Vandals at MEGlobal Athletic Park on Saturday June 8th, 7PM kickoff. See you there.................
