HILLTOPS WIN CLASH OF THE UNBEATENS
Both teams went into Saturday night's game with 3-0 records.
Saskatoon running back Logan Fischer amassed 293 yards along the ground and was the difference as the Hilltops outscored Regina 21-3 in the second half.
In the first quarter the Thunder drew first blood on a Colton Klassen touchdown and led 7-0 after 1. In the second the Hilltops tied it up on a Chad Braun touchdown catch. The Thunder retook the lead after a blocked punt and good field position that was capped off by a Thomas Bresciani major to make it 14-7. Saskatoon tied it up before halftime when Logan Fischer carried one to paydirt and it was 14-14 at the break.
In the second half Evan Kopchynski caught a touchdown and then QB Jared Andreychuk ran one in to make it 28-14. Kris Calcutt kicked a Regina field goal after that and the Hilltops lead was 28-17 after 3.
Drayke Unger scored a touchdown along the ground for the lone points of the 4th and it was 35-17 Saskatoon, that was the final.
The Thunder turned the ball over 3 times in the contest to the Hilltops one.
Regina can get revenge on Saturday when they host the Hilltops at 7:00 pm at Mosaic Stadium on Access 7.
