The Wildcats defeated Ardrossan Bisons 36-19 on Saturday, Nov. 12 in Edmonton and will be heading to the provincial semi-finals in Grand Prairie next weekend.

Happy with the team’s performance, Head Coach Norbert Baharally said. “Our team was very fired up and went into this game highly motivated to win.”

The Wildcats knew they were going to be in a tough contest going against the No. 1 ranked team Ardrosssan Bisons and defending Tier IV Champions in the first round. “However, we also knew that if we played a perfect game that we could win this game,” added Baharally. “Our offensive line played a very solid game for us upfront providing our quarterback with enough time to pass the ball and find the open receivers and they also opened up some big holes for our running backs.”

Stettler’s Carson Neitz had a great game throwing for three touchdowns and getting two interceptions when he was played defence.

Mitchell Gudgeon also had a strong game for the Wildcats catching two touchdown passes and getting an interception on defence.

Teron Garbutt once again had a very strong game, rushing for two very long touchdown runs and gaining about 200 yards on the ground.

“Our defence and special teams play was also very solid throughout the entire game,” Baharally said. “Our guys played their best game of the year thus far. We will need to continue to play at this high calibre if we are going to beat our next opponent, the Sexsmith Sabres on Saturday in Grande Prairie.”

Wildcats will be playing Sexsmith Sabres on Saturday, Nov. 19 at noon at the CKC Field in Grand Prairie.

It will be the Tier IV Northern Final and Provincial Tier IV semi-final.
