The Stettler Panthers celebrate their 20-6 win over Sylvan Lake in the Central Alberta Football League Tier 4 peewee final last Saturday

The Stettler Panthers celebrate their 20-6 win over Sylvan Lake in the Central Alberta Football League Tier 4 peewee final last Saturday in Stettler. The Panthers have advanced to the provincial semifinals in Lloydminster next weekend. Stettler’s defence had a strong showing against a Sylvan Lake team that beat the Panthers 24-0 earlier this season.

“It shows how far our team has come,” said Stettler coach Berri Shirley. “We came out strong in the first half, scoring 20 points. It was an entire team effort. We had some key injuries early and every player on the team had to step up to hold onto the lead. We are very proud of every player and the team they have become.”
