The University of Regina Rams could not buy a break Saturday losing 18-16 to the University of Manitoba in Canada West football action at Mosaic Stadium.
The game was full of squandered opportunities for the team including two missed field goals in the game’s last three minutes that could have resulted in a victory.
The turning point occurred in the second quarter. Rams quarterback Noah Picton found a wide-open Kyle Moortgat behind the Bisons defence for what would have been a 75 yard touchdown, but Moortgat dropped what should have been a catch. On the next play, Picton’s pass was intercepted by defensive back Jayden McKoy who took it back for six points.
It was one of three interceptions on the day for Picton.
Regina also wasted another golden opportunity to put points on the board as Atlee Simon fumbled at the one yard line snuffing out a promising Rams drive.
Regina is now 2-2 on the season. They will visit the University of Saskatchewan Huskies next Friday night in a game that can be heard online at sportscage.ca
