The Shaunavon Shadows have a shot at the SHSAA 4A 9-man Football Provincial Championship and redemption tomorrow in Lumsden.
They'll be looking to avenge a 42-0 loss at the hands of the Devils from October 13 with the ultimate prize on the line.
Shaunavon Head Coach Aaron Audette believes his team's loss to Lumsden last month was a wake-up call and they'll use that for fuel on Saturday.
"We know they're going to be tough; we also know that we're going to have to take what we did with our best game we played all year this past weekend against Melfort and we're still going to have to be better in order to have a chance," he said. "The good news is I think we're putting together a good gameplan and the guys really feel like they have something to prove going into this."
Shaunavon upended the previously unbeaten Melfort Comets last Saturday at Smith Field 37-28 in the provincial semi-final to earn their berth in the finals.
"We knew they were going to be tough; I think the guys really went out and executed our gameplan the best we could," he said. "We really stepped our game up from any level that we've been at all year."
Audette is also the Shadow's offensive coach but he's hoping his team's backbone on the other side of the ball can be the biggest influence in the provincial final.
"If we can limit their offence more than we have and other teams have been able to, I think then we give ourselves a chance," he said.
Shaunavon is 7-1 on the season while Lumsden remains undefeated at 8-0.
CJSN 1490 will broadcast the game tomorrow with pregame starting at 12:50 p.m. and kickoff at 1 p.m.
