It was a battle for gold between two undefeated football teams on Taurus Field for the Bantam Provincial Finals.
 
The Calgary Stampeders and Leduc Ti-Cats went head-to-head on Saturday (Nov.17) afternoon. The game quickly proved to be a tough one for the Ti-Cats, losing star player Dale Clendennin on the second play of the game. 
 
The Stampeders dominated the rest of the game, winning 66-0.
 
"It was a fantastic year for our boys in Calgary and to finish it all off here as the champions undefeated, outstanding," said Calgary head coach Dave Harty. "There just wasn't any weaknesses today. The boys really stepped up."
 
He gave extra credit to running back Zachary Pipe for a fantastic game. Pipe scored the team's first touchdown three minutes into the game.
 
Leduc's head coach Ken Coffee said it was a tough game on his team, but he was still proud of a great season.
 
"We have a great group of young men who play football with us and they just did phenomenal this year," added Coffee. "The reality is, two great teams played and they played a better game than we did. They played an amazing game."
 
Both coaches also went on to praise Taurus Field, stating that it was a beautiful field to play on.
 
"You can tell it's really supported in the community and we think the facility is fantastic. We were just very fortunate to play on it today," said Harty.
 
Some of the kudos went to the cleanliness, layout of the facility and the spacious locker rooms. 
 
This was the first time provincials were held in Fort Saskatchewan in years. The almost $10-million Taurus Field opened earlier this summer.
 
There was no Fort Saskatchewan team in the tournament.
