The MHS Royals football team hosted North Battleford Friday as the stands were full to cheer on their team. The Royals defeated North Battleford 41-18 to become their league champions and went undefeated in league play this season with a 6-0 record. MHS took an early lead and never looked back. Their special teams brought home two touchdowns and a kick-off return in the second half. Coach Evanisky was happy with the running game. “I thought Brody Nelson, Connor Hamelin and Dylan Babecy all did well running the football. He would like to see the team more disciplined and take less penalties. He was happy that many of the younger players were able to get some playing time in the game.
The team will be working hard, watching film and preparing for their playoff game this weekend. They earned a home playoff spot as a result of their standings. Nipawin will face the Royals on Saturday at 1:00pm at Wilson Field in the provincial quarter finals. Come out and wear blue and cheer on your Royals. Congratulations to the Royals, Northwest League Champions.
