Paul Kane Playoff Driven

By Jeff Hansen, St. Albert Today
Wednesday, Oct. 23, 2019

Strecker noted Ardrossan “has a few weapons” Paul Kane must be leery of.

“Number 11 is a fantastic receiver. He's sort of their game breaker so he's going to give us problems. He plays both ways. He’s a really good sort of a hybrid linebacker/defensive back so he causes a lot of grief on defence and on offence he’s their fly sweeper. He’s their go-to guy for the deep ball so we need to control him,” Strecker said. “Their quarterback is athletic and elusive so we’ve got to watch out for him also.”

The Bisons finished in a three-way tie for first in the Miles Pool B standings and Ardrossan was able to capture a win in its quarter-final contest — a very narrow 9-8 victory over St. Albert.

The Herd has taken on the role of hunters.

Bisons stall on final drive to fall in provincial semifinals

They have almost always been able to take pride in being the last Strathcona school standing.


The Ardrossan Bisons just wish that they were able to stay on their feet for one more week.


The smallest school in the Metro Edmonton League with a full football program, the Ardrossan Bisons spent the regular season in the Metro’s Division 2 Miles Conference, amassing a very respectable 4-1 record against the larger schools before suffering a 53-14 loss in the Miles semifinals to the eventual city champion Paul Kane Blues — all the while knowing that the campaign served primarily as a way to temper themselves for a larger prize to come.
