The Stettler Panthers defused the Lacombe Explosion’s defense in its first game of the season, winning 24-0.
Despite the uneven score, both teams played hard, but the Explosion just couldn’t stop the Panthers from scoring.
Stettler’s Will Brennan put the first touchdown on the board, followed by Ryan Shirley, who followed up with three outstanding touchdowns.
Kevin Missikewitz threw a 15-yard touchdown pass and Brett Mercier was robbed of a 53-yard touchdown.
Defensively, the Panthers shut down the Explosion, with Colton Ansorger and Curtis Myshaniuk both having fumble recoveries.
The defense made multiple quarterback sacks and tackles behind the line of scrimmage to keep the Explosion offense’s fuse unlit.
Even with only inches to go to score, the Explosion could not break the Panthers defense, and went home without any points.
