The peewee Stettler Panthers had yet another great day on the football field this past Saturday in Olds, shutting out the home team 57-0.

The cold, wind and snow-covered field didn’t slow the Panthers down.

“This was a huge win for us,” said Stettler coach Berri Shirley.

The Panthers have won three straight games as they enter the playoffs.

The offence played well, with great execution, and the scoring was spread between many teammates, which is a great confidence-boost for all.

Jessica Lane came up big with a 75-yard sprint down the field for a touchdown. Carson Nietz, Adam Shirley, Derek Smyth, Alex DeYoung, Kam Bainbridge and Mac Brennan all scored touchdowns, as well.

The Panthers’ defence, which has only allowed six points over the last three weeks, came up strong again.

“We are very excited for the kids,” coach Shirley said. “They’ve worked very hard to get to this point and have a great shot at the Tier 4 league championship.”

The Panthers host Innisfail this Saturday at 4 p.m. in the first round of the playoffs.
