A duo of Swift Current minor football players helped Saskatchewan blow past Manitoba last night at the Western Canada Showdown at the U16 level.

Jackson Gording Dovel played linebacker and rush end and received the defensive player of the game in their 38-0 victory.

Chase Auseth started at right tackle and played some left guard too.

And a third local player made the team's practice roster, Cade Napper as a defensive back.

Saskatchewan takes on Alberta on Saturday at 2 p.m. in Regina.
