NORTH OF THE BORDER — Last week was Pioneer Day in the state of Utah, and for those readers who don’t live in the Beehive State (sure, they exist here), we’ve decided to go international with this weekend’s best moments.
Putting the North in North America, Canada produced some pretty fine plays, too — from the son of an NFL legend’s one-handed catch in Saskatchewan to a native Utahn’s feat in Ontario.
As always, click the video above for each of the Great Clips of the Week.
Duron Carter wins football’s catch of the year
Lock it down; no one is beating Duron Carter’s catch for the Saskatchewan Roughriders in a Canadian Football League game Saturday against the Toronto Argonauts.
The son of Pro Football Hall of Famer Cris Carter climbed up and pushed off his defensive back, then reached backwards for a one-handed snare you have to see to believe.

After the game, Carter gave the ball from The Catch to devoted Roughriders fans Miss Paige and Rider Mommy, two locals who have become local celebrities among the Regina faithful.
Here’s proof of Miss Paige taking the ball all the way to bed with her.
Finau’s finest hole his last at Canadian Open
Lehi resident Tony Finau finished tied for fifth at the RBC Canadian Open.
But his finish on the final hole was worth the prize money.
Finau stroked a pin-high approach shot from 139 yards to within five feet of the par-5 18th hole in Oakville, Ontario, and he closed his round with an eagle to move from eighth to fourth in one putt.
Finau’s final round saw him card three birdies and the eagle with two bogeys to shoot 4-under-68, three shots behind winner Jhonattan Vegas.
Here’s his final hole.
An own goal that looks planned
Inter Milan was leading Chelsea 2-0 in an International Champions Cup match on American soil before Inter defender Geoffrey Kondogbia scored a spectacular goal from 40 yards out.
The only problem: The talented 24-year-old Frenchman scored it against his own goalkeeper.
Don’t feel bad, amateur soccer players; it even happens to the top-flight professionals.
