The ECS Elecs played on Friday, with the team experiencing a new first - they tied up a game, having the score ending up 12-12 after overtime.

They tied the Vanier Vikings, a team from Moose Jaw, to get their first non-loss of the season.

Coach Mark Schott says the team is getting better as the season goes on.

"We've been steadily improving. our defense has been pretty solid for us and we've been pretty happy with their performance. We can't improve in all facets of the game, but our offense is starting to make those steps where we were able to move the ball on Friday night and we put up 12 first downs," said Schoot, "Overall, we're heading in the right direction, but we still need to be better."

Schott says he's confident the team will continue to improve as the season goes on and the team gets more comfortable with playing together.

Most importantly, Schott says the team is having fun playing the game.

"They had a lot of fun on Friday, everyone was excited and it was nice to see that positive energy and the smiles from the players," said Schott, "They're starting to get that belief as a group, so that's nice to see. Although it would have been nice to come away with a win, I think it's a step in the right direction for us."

Though the players had plenty of fun, the spectators had a bit of a confusing time, as many weren't aware, to begin with, that the Elecs would play overtime - including the referees.

"The game was declared over at the end of the 4th quarter. I had to locate the rules on my phone that our league does indeed go into overtime, and show that to the refs," said Schott, "But while that was happening people were packing up and leaving. There was an announcement that we will in fact play overtime, and there was a social media post. I know there were a few people who were on their way home and turned around and drove back for the overtime and they experienced some exciting overtime football."

The Elecs now go on to play another Moose Jaw team, this time the Peacock Tornadoes on Saturday.
