The Stettler Panthers had a decisive 79-6 win over Innisfail in Central Alberta Football League peewee action on the weekend.

The entire team and coaches were sporting pink to support women with cancer, and the Stettler players handed out pink roses at halftime to the moms and women in the crowd.

The coaches were confident going into the game, said coach Berri Shirley.

“The kids have been working hard all season and have really put it all together over the last few weeks.”

The Stettler defence was outstanding in holding Innisfail to six points.

Carson Nietz, Adam Shirley and Austin Jacobson exploded for 400 yards of offence. Gavin McQuay ran a pitch play 100 yards and Alex DeYoung returned a punt 100 yards, both for touchdowns.

Steel Nichols was again outstanding on the defensive side, as the leading tackler, while Zachary Lachowski had a great kicking game for the Panthers.

“This is was a complete team effort,” Shirley said.

“The coaches are very excited about the future and playoffs.”
