The visiting Stettler Panthers blanked the Sylvan Lake Bears 54-0 in Central Alberta Football League peewee action last Saturday.

The Panthers prevailed at halftime after the Bears elected to forfeit the rest of the game.

“We are very proud of our team and are looking forward to a great season,” said Panthers coach Berri Shirley.

Saturday’s effort was Stettler’s second shutout victory in as many games this season.

“It was a dominating win in all aspects of the game,” Shirley said. “Stettler came out firing on both sides of the ball, and on special teams.

“Coaches were extremely pleased with the defence, which for the second consecutive week did not allow any points.”

After a bye this week, the Panthers visit Lacombe on Sept. 28.
