On Friday night we were thrilled to be able to capture the Macklin Sabres taking on the Hague Panthers in Saskatchewan High Schools Athletic Association football action. With the season winding down each game has playoff implications as both the Sabres and the Panthers are battling for a playoff berth and home field advantage. Friday night's game was extra special for a few Sabres' seniors who, depending on the playoff schedule, may have played their last high school football game in their hometown of Macklin.
The Hague Panthers would walk away with a commanding 66-22 victory over the Sabres but the large home town crowd did not leave disappointed as the effort by both teams made it a great football game to watch.
It was my first time getting to watch six man football which is unique as the Canadian Football League (CFL) plays with twelve players on the field per team and the National Football League (NFL) has eleven players per side on the field. Depending on the eligible population of the school they could be in six man football, nine man football or twelve man football. Games are often high scoring with teams getting six points for a touch down, three points for a field goal, two points for a successful point after attempt and a single point for a missed point after attempt.
