Regina Thunder 23 vs Winnipeg Rifles 11

September 17, 2023

This was a hard-fought battle with the Thunder doing just enough to escape with a win in Winnipeg.

Running back Ryland Leichert carried the rock 19 times for 110 yards and got into the endzone. The aerial attack struggled against the Rifles secondary, but quarterback Carter Moberg did manage 18 completions for 218 yards and found Leichert for a touchdown leaking out of the backfield.

Kicker Sean Green was solid with three field goals including a 40 yarder.

The Rifles found it difficult to move the football against the Thunder defence. As a matter of fact, their only touchdown came from their own defence. Josh Yanchishyn intercepted a pass and returned it 69- yards for a major late in the fourth quarter. He ended the game with two picks.

With the win the Thunder move to 4-1 and will host the Calgary Colts (2-3) next weekend while the Rifles (1-4) fight for their playoff lives and entertain the Edmonton Wildcats (0-5).
