The first annual battle of the Border took place this weekend as the Prairie Pilots from Three Hills Alberta, traveled out to Pambrun to play against the Millar Edge Women’s & Men’s Futsal as well as Women’s Basketball teams.
Kicking off the weekend was a tight game between the Ladies basketball teams in which the Millar Ladies came out on top 52-50. Following that, the Women’s’ futsal teams went head to head. Prairie seemed to have things wrapped up as they were ahead 3-1 with a just a few minutes to go when all of a sudden the Millar ladies stormed back and won 5-3.
The Millar men completed the Friday sweep winning their futsal match 4-1. Saturday was a much different story as the women’s futsal game started things off and ended in a 3-3 tie. This meant that the aggregate score was 8-6 for the Edge Ladies, giving them the overall win and putting the score between the schools to 1-0.
Next was the men, and in a complete reversal of the night before, the Prairie Pilots ended up winning their match 6-3 and evening up the overall score 7-7 to send things to a shootout. The teams went back and forth and in the end, the Millar Edge Men came out on top, pushing the overall weekend score to 2-0. The Prairie Ladies Basketball team put in a valiant effort and came away with the lone overall win for Prairie as they beat Millar 74-38, making the overall score 2-1.
Overall a great first Battle of the Border!
