Stettler’s peewee football team Panthers ended their season on Saturday after losing 12-0 to Sylvan Lake Bears.

The Panthers struggled offensively and it was not until the early minutes of the second half that they could make inroads through the Bears territory.

But their efforts were not enough to put any numbers on the scoreboard and the game ended with many expectations being left to the next season.

Panthers’ coach Gary Sorenson said he saw the season as one of “building and redeveloping.”

“There will be many players who will come back next year stronger, they are going to be a little bit older, little bit more mature,” he said.

“We were also a quite small team this year and we would like to have more size on the line.”

“I think we have the athletic ability but I think we have to have some players learn to play 100 per cent,” he said.

Referring to his earlier experiences in a member of the Panthers’ coaching staff, Sorenson said “We had lots of players in the last couple of years who came to their second year as if somebody has turned on a light switch. They were totally different, more aggressive with the ball, they gained speed and their mental capacity had improved.”

The Panthers coaching staff have already started their meetings to prepare for the next season.

Sorenson said the four main coaches should be back next year.

“We will look at the possibilities with new offensive schemes and see what we can change for the next season.”
