The Huskies come off their bye week with a Friday night clash with Manitoba. Despite the Huskies’ 20 point victory over the Bisons in week #1, most view these teams as very evenly matched. Huskie Outsider offers their thoughts on Friday’s game with another edition of “Three Downs.” 1st down: Who is one player that you think is poised for a strong second half to the season? Dog Whisperer: Kolodzinski! He is having the most consistent year of his career and it should continue. Honourable mention to Julan Lynch, mostly because we NEED him to be an impact player in the second half, but getting him involved and exploiting his | Full Article

As the players gathered on the field following the Dogs 21 – 16 victory over Regina, several of the players spoke briefly with Huskie Outsider about the game. Halfback Andrew Abbs: “It was pretty ugly there,” said Abbs, who broke up what would have been a game winning pass for Regina, that ended up in the arms of cornerback Keegan Arnyek. “He (the receiver) flipped me and I just tried to get over there as soon as I could. It was a good thing that Keegan (Arnyek) was back there I guess.” Abbs talked about the team’s reaction to the game during their post game huddle. “It was pretty ugly; | Full Article

In a post game discussion with Coach Brian Towriss, BT commented on the observation that the Huskies made enough plays to escape with a five point win in Regina. “I guess so,” he replied. “Our defence played pretty well, thank goodness, and they got some turnovers for us.” His frustration with the overall performance, particularly from the offence, was evident. “This has to be a lesson in preparation – I don’t have any other answer for it. At times we can be pretty good, but we went offside twice on long gains today. We had a touchdown called back and another play called back that went down to the two | Full Article

RB Jarvis James (22 carries for 153 yards): “The OLine really helped us running backs tonight; I couldn’t have asked for anything better from them and the play-calling was perfect.” On Calgary RB Mercer Timmis: “He’s a very good player and he runs the ball really well behind his good offensive line.” James discussed the lack of offensive output in the second half: “We just couldn’t capitalize when we needed to.

Following Friday’s tough loss to Calgary, Huskie coach Brian Towriss met with the media to discuss the game. His comments touched on the performance of his team, the Calgary performance, and some questionable officiating late in the game. “First of all, we didn’t score enough points in the second half,” BT commented about the final 30 minutes where, in fact, the Dogs were shut out. “With these guys you’ve got to keep scoring and they were able to get us off the field. We had a couple of chances to convert and didn’t.” Towriss then turned his attention to the play most people were talking about following the game: a | Full Article
