We were embarrassed tonight!”
That is how Regina Rams Head Coach Steve Bryce reacted moments after the final gun sounded as the University of Saskatchewan Huskies beat his club by a score of 44-9.
Bryce says the score was bad enough, but when its their provincial rival doing it, it is something that really leaves a bitter taste in his mouth.
“That’s a part of it.” Bryce admitted. “That’s your provincial rival and when they come down from Saskatoon and do what they did, it stings a little extra.
Bryce was extremely frustrated at the way his team played and that they have turned a 180 from their season-opening 30 point win in Vancouver
“We seemed like we couldn’t get out of our own way tonight.” Bryce said. “We had problems generating first downs, we were tripping over our feet, we got guys blocking the wrong way. It looked like we hadn’t attended camp yet.
The Huskies offensive line was dominant on this night as they ran for 244 yards with Adam Machert carrying the ball 17 times for 134 yards as the Huskies improved to 2-1 while Regina is now 1-2. It doesn’t get any easier for Bryce’s bunch as they are in Calgary to take on the first place Dinos next Friday night.
