The Central Alberta Buccaneers improved to 5-0 with a convincing win over the Calgary Wolfpack, 79-0. The two teamskicked off at Calgary’s Shouldice Park during a very wet and hail-ridden July 9 evening.

The Bucs wasted no time getting on the scoreboard. The pinpoint passing of Brandon Leyh found several pirate receivers in the ‘Pack end zone’ in the first half of the game. Offensively, Brandon Leyh came ready to play.

“As usual,” said No. 54 linebacker Elliott Mabbot, “our o-line has been huge for us all season. They are the unsung heroes of the team and because of their hard work, our pass and run games are deadly.” Defensively, the Bucs were stingy and aggressive. Not only did they hold on for the shutout, they limited the Wolfpack offense to only four first downs.

“Our front seven on our defense shut down their running game and put on a lot of pressure on the quarterbacks and made life difficult for them,” said No. 20, cornerback Cole Stewart. “We set the tone early and even when we subbed in new guys we kept the tempo up. It was good to see.”

Standout individual performances include slotback Jamal Henry with two receiving touchdowns on the night (for 112 yards total). Jesse McPhail also caught two touch down passes, for a total of 159 yards. Runningbacks Junior Rivera and Ron-LeeKing each rushed into the Wolfpack end zone twice. In the first half, Brandon Leyh threw for 253 passing yards (which included 3 touch downs). In the second half, Judah Knip and Andrew Stannix ran the offense as tandem quarterbacks Knipthrew his first passing touchdown as a Buccaneer quarterback. Defensive-end Ian Keetch led the pirate D with seven tackles,three of which were for a loss.

The Bucs traveled to Calgary July 16th.
