The ECS Elecs football team is off to the semifinals in Moose Jaw High School Football League action after defeating the Swift Current Colts 21-9 on Tuesday.
The Elecs (2-4) now take on the undefeated Vanier Vikings in Saturday's semi in Moose Jaw. Estevan held Vanier scoreless for nearly three full quarters last Friday in their regular season finale.
After a scoreless first quarter, Dustin MacCuish got the Elecs on the board with a 73-yard rushing major on the first play of the second quarter. Swift Current later added a 29-yard field goal.
Late in the half, the Elecs went to running back Jaren Prokop on a fake punt to set up a 32-yard touchdown pass to Stefan Seipp, who is normally a defensive lineman but has played both ways the last two weeks due to injuries. The Elecs then went for two on a handoff to Julian Rioux and got it to take a 14-3 lead at the half.
The Colts got their first touchdown with 6:48 left in the fourth quarter on a 29-yard pass that appeared to hit the ground as the Swift Current receiver dove to catch it.
After an injury to MacCuish, the Elecs gave Colton Bachorcik a chance as their feature running back and he plunged for a four-yard major with 1:26 remaining to give the Elecs a 21-9 lead.
