The Central Alberta Buccaneers’ struggles continued Saturday at Calgary, where the host Gators posted a 17-13 victory in a battle of two previously winless Alberta Football League teams.

The Bucs led 4-3 in the second quarter thanks to a 34-yard field goal from Tylor Johnson, but the Gators moved ahead 10-4 on a passing touchdown just before halftime and held the lead the rest of the way.

The Calgary squad increased the margin to 17-4 in the third quarter before Bucs quarterback Byron Stearns passed for a touchdown to pare the deficit to six points.

But that was it for the Central Alberta offence, which failed to score the rest of the way and watched from the sidelines as the Gators gave up a safety to run out the clock and post their first win of the season.

Bucs rookie corner Mark Fay intercepted two passes for 100 yards in return and Jordan Willie also had an interception and was credited with five and one-half tackles.

The 0-3 Buccaneers will travel to Edmonton Saturday to take on the Stallions at Clarke Field.
