The Central Alberta Buccaneers men’s football team finished their Alberta Football League regular season with a 25-18 win over the Airdrie Irish on Saturday, cementing their season record at six wins and two losses going into playoffs.

“There were a lot of positives to be taken away from the game,” said Hunter Gooderham, rookie receiver for the Bucs. “Both the offence and defence had big plays, showing a glimpse of what we are truly capable of.”

It’s that mentality with which the Bucs will head into their next game, against the Edmonton Stallions this Saturday (Aug. 22). The quarter-final action takes place 6 p.m. at the MEGlobal Athletic Park in Lacombe.

Both the Bucs and the Irish donned pink in support of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation on Saturday, raising $250 and $1,000, respectively, for the cause.
