Panthers suffer defeat at home

Stettler’s peewee football team has suffered a home defeat last weekend with the coach Gary Sorenson expressing optimism that the team might still be having good learning experience as they go.

The Panthers lost 44-0 to Red Deer Hornets in a game played in rainy weather.

Coach Sorenson said although their game scores were not very bright, their passing game was improving and some players were making a great effort.

But he admitted that he was not getting a wholehearted attempt from all of his players.

“There is an issue of maturity with regard to their approach to the game,” said Sorenson.

He said while some of his players were intent on learning the game, there were others who were playing just to have been involved in a sport.

But he expressed the optimism that they would produce a better performance when they move to the next stage of the season.

Panthers are now expected to join Tier 4 play downs when the regular season ends with their game this weekend against Red Deer Steelers.

“We will probably host Sylvan Lake for the first game of the playdowns,” said Sorenson.

Zeke Ryan, the defensive coach of the Panthers, also said that the defense line was improving in their game.
