The Mighty Cyclones played their last regular season game on Saturday against the Old Huskies and shut them out 24-0. The team finish the season with a perfect 6-0 record capturing the title of No. 1 ranked team in Central Alberta.

"It has been the dream season, so far," stated head coach Wally Genz. "But we feel far from finished."

The Cyclones have a bye next week and have the luxury of watching the results of the other teams to see who they play in the first round of playoffs which takes place October 29th.

The Cyclones want to thank the Town of Innisfail for their unbelievable support and generosity with the recent bottle drive donations and their words of encouragement.

"We feel like celebrities," said Cyclones quarterback Austin Thompson. "Horns are always honking as they pass our practice field and people see us in school and around town in our Cyclones jackets and shout things like go get them Cyclones!"

Thompson threw for 80 yards and managed to run in a 55 yard touchdown. Thomas "Lightning" Layden and Jeremy Klessens added points to the board with their touchdowns as did rookie Justin Woodruff who caught a 20 yard pass and ran 25 yards for his first touchdown of the season.

The Cyclone defence chalked up their second shutout of the season.

"Our seniors like Declan Jensen and Carson Sparrow showed why we have the No.1 defence in the league today but my highlight of the day was the fact we played our first year players for three quarters of the game," said Genz. "Dakota Lute, Danyon Lorencz, TJ Bell-Chambers, and Nathan Fuerbringer, to name a few, were out to prove a point today."
