Central Alberta Bucs fall in regular-season finale, playoff fate to be determined

The Central Alberta Buccaneers will have to wait another week before they see the complete Alberta Football League playoff picture.

They are locked into third place after the conclusion of the regular season on Saturday but have to watch the scoreboard until week 10 ends to find out where they travel.

The Calgary Wolfpack still have a shot at clinching first, if they can beat the Cold Lake Fighter Jets by nine or more points. If the Fighter Jets lose by nine or less or win, they earn first place.

The Bucs will travel and play a road game at either Cold Lake or Calgary on Aug. 17.

In Saturday’s game in Cold Lake, the Bucs were in the game early but ran out of steam in the second half. The two teams were tied at 14 at halftime. In the second half, the Bucs were only able to muster a field goal and couldn’t entirely shut down the Fighter Jets run game. Cold Lake won the game 34-17 and improved to 6-1 on the season.
