Football: Dinos drop to 0-5

By Brad Day

Leading the Dinos’ offence was freshman Dalin Tollestrup who completed 11 of 23 passes for 123 yards in the air. On the ground for the Dinos was a split backfield between Alex Andrews and Anthony Woodson. Andrews had 14 carries for 102 yards, while Woodson had 14 carries for 74 yards. K.C. Prince led the receivers with 39 yards in the air.

The only Dino to put any points up on the board in Regina was kicker Aaron Ifield, who knocked a 33-yard field goal at 5:34 of the third quarter. Ifield is currently tied for first in the Canada West division for field goals kicked, knocking 11 of 12 attempts through the uprights this year.

The Dinos started the game off in a hole again, allowing Regina to score on their first possession, a seven-yard pass from Rams’ quarterback Teale Orban to fullback Sheldon Tillotson. The Dinos started their previous game by allowing the University of Saskatchewan Huskies to score on their first drive, en route to a 55-10 rout at McMahon Stadium, Fri., Sept. 29.

Regina scored another major before the half was finished, a 22-yard pass from Orban to wideout Chris Bauman. Punter Peter Scarcelli added a rogue ten seconds before the half ended, making the score 15-0 in favour of the Rams.

Calgary came out in the third, making the score 15-3 on the aforementioned Ifield field goal, but Regina would put the game out of reach at 11:34 of the third on a touchdown pass by Orban to Chris Getzlaf. The Rams then added a two-point convert on a pass from Joel Lipinski to Steve Wilson, making the score 23-3. The Rams then slammed the coffin shut, with a final field goal and a rogue in the fourth.

Up next for the Dinos is the hated University of Alberta Golden Bears, Sat., Oct. 14 in Edmonton. The Golden Bears are currently in fourth place in the Canada West division. The Dinos can throw a wrench in the Golden Bears’ playoff hopes with a win on the 14th.
