Stettler’s bantam football team continued with its spectacular rush to the championship with yet another victory against Sylvan Lake without allowing any points to its opponent: 60-0
Cougars were again dominant throughout the game in both offense and defense.
Head coach Mike Roach commented on the game as follows:
“The Stettler Cougars travelled to Sylvan Lake to take on the Lions, on Saturday, Sept. 19. The Cougars were able to come away with their third victory of the season. Stettler’s offense, led by quarterbacks Morgan Loshny, Mark Meyer, and Stephen Zuk, racked up 577 yards of offense and scored seven touchdowns. The defense added two TDs as well. Micheal Lalonde scooped up a fumble and ran it into the end zone and Mark Meyer had a 50 yard interception return for a TD. Nicholas Baharally was good on 3 of 9 converts.
Mark Forrester led the offense with 112 yards rushing and receiving and three touchdowns. Braden Nelson had 79 yards and two touchdowns. Bryce Fisher and Parker Cassidy each had one touchdown. Morgan Loshny was five of five in passing and two of the completions resulted in TDS. Once again, the offensive line played well. Matt Kirk, Riley Anderson, Dallas Bosma, Tyler Greiner, Jordan McCallum, Cody Ell, and Micheal Lalonde, opened the holes for the running backs and protected the quarterbacks.
The Lions were unable to run the ball, so they attempted to pass the ball. The Cougar defensive backs had several knockdowns and one interception. Tyler Stewart, Stephen Zuk, Josh Weeteringen, Clayton Steen, and Mark Meyer supplied great coverage. Top tacklers were Devon Woelk, Mark Forrester, Ryan Greene, Ryan Gerl, Lucas Rankeillor, Gavin Loshny, and Brandon Wintringham.
The Cougars now get two weeks to prepare for the Olds Bulldogs. Olds and the Notre Dame Cougars are currently tied with Stettler. All three teams are undefeated so far. The Cougars host the Bulldogs on Saturday, Oct. 3 at 12:30 p.m. at the high school field.”
