It was a great day of football as Stettler’s teams won in away games in Red Deer this past Saturday, Sept. 17.

The Stettler Panthers defeated Red Deer Steelers 18-6 and played a good all-round game to keep the pressure on their opponents with neither teams scoring at half-time.

“The game on Saturday went really well,” said defensive coordinator Zeke Ryan. “It was a defensive battle up until the third quarter.”

Panthers Kyle Dennis and Zach McCord scored the touchdowns.

“It was a great game,” added Ryan.

Cougars beat Notre Dame 61-20Displaying great game prowess, the Stettler Cougars shut down opponents Notre Dame on defence, scoring on their first three possessions.

“First quarter we played great,” said head coach Ernie Shirreff. “Then we got sloppy with our tackling and maybe lost a little intensity on offence and allowed Notre Dame to score in the second quarter to finish the half 21-8.”

Stettler’s offence got rolling again in the second half and was dominant for the most part.

“We had a couple of interceptions in the second half but we also had a few breakdowns in coverage that allowed Notre Dame to score twice more,” added Shirreff. “I thought our overall effort was better but we didn’t play four quarters of football.”

Speaking of their next game against Lacombe, Shirreff said, “We have a tougher challenge this Saturday at home, but I think the boys will be up to it.”
