A deficit of 27 points just proved to be too much for the University of Regina Rams to overcome Friday night.
The Rams fell to the University of Saskatchewan Huskies 33-20 in a wild Canada West affair at Griffiths Stadium.
After trailing 30-3 just past the midway mark of the third quarter, the Rams cashed in on three straight possessions to bring the game to 30-20 in the early stages of the fourth quarter. However, on their fourth straight possession threatening to score, the Huskies’ Bowan Lewis intercepted an end zone pass. Saskatchewan’s next drive chewed down the lock, which ended in a field goal, sealing the deal.
The Rams’ Noah Picton completed 21/34 passes for 271 yards with three picks, while Kyle Borsa had a solid night carrying the ball, running it for 96 yards on the night.
On the other side of the ball, Huskies QB Kyle Siemens had a solid night, going 23/33 with 283 yards, three touchdowns and a pick. Adam Machart led the Huskies’ ground game, running the ball for 121 yards on 16 carries.
The 2-2 Rams next take on the University of Manitoba Bisons on Saturday, September 29th. Kickoff at Investors Group Stadium in Winnipeg is at 2:00 pm.
