The Regina Thunder improved to 3 and 1 on the season with a 35-14 win in Edmonton on Sunday over the Wildcats. The Wildcats record drops to 2 and 2 with the loss.

The Thunder would open the scoring early after Edmonton fumbled on the first play of the game. Justin Bannin would pick up the rushing touchdown and it was 7-0. Chris Tunnicliffe would pick up his first interception of the year after that and set up a William McGee field goal to make it 10-0 Regina. That was the score after 1.

In the second the Thunder offense continued to move the ball. Jaeden Marwick completed a long pass to Colton Klassen and then ran the ball himself for 23 yards to set up first and goal at the 3. Klassen would punch it in and it was 17-0 Thunder. The Wildcats would respond with a touchdown with 8:26 left in the half and it was 17-7. The Thunder would go up 20-7 on William McGees' second field goal of the game and then with a minute left in the half Jaeden Marwick threw a touchdown pass to Matt Frass and it was 27-7. The Wildcats would give up a safety after that and the Thunder led 29-7 at the half.

There would be no scoring in the 3rd quarter. William McGee came close to his 3rd field goal of the game but hit the upright.

In the fourth McGee would get that 3rd field goal, this one from 41 yards out and it was 32-7. The Wildcats would get their 2nd touchdown of the day to make it 32-14. They tried on onside kick but were unable to convert. William McGee would kick another field goal to make it 35-14 and that was the final score.

The Thunder are back in action on Sunday in Winnipeg against the Rifles.
