Football playoff matchups set

Although they had a good idea of who they would face already, the Carlton Crusaders and St. Mary Marauders football teams now officially know when they’ll take to the field against next.

Both programs will take part in Saskatoon Secondary Schools Athletic Directorate Division II semifinal games Thursday in Saskatoon, as the Marauders will go up against the Tommy Douglas Tigers at 5:15 p.m. and the Crusaders will face the Bethlehem Starts at 7:30 p.m.

The two matchups will take place at the Saskatoon Minor Football Field.

The Marauders squared off with the Tigers this past Thursday at Max Clunie Field, in a game that saw Tommy Douglas pick up a 39-24 win.

Meanwhile, the Crusaders previously took on the Stars in Prince Albert on Friday, Sept. 7, as Bethlehem held off a late Carlton rally for a 22-20 triumph.

The Division II final will take place in Saskatoon on Friday, Nov. 2 at 5 p.m.

However, if both Prince Albert schools win their semifinal matchups, that game is expected to be held at Max Clunie Field.
