Stettler Cougars sit atop the CAFL after 5th straight victory

With five straight wins this season the Cougars are sitting at the top of the Central Alberta Football League

The Stettler Cougars made their presence known with their home opener on Oct. 5th against the Olds Rotary Bulldogs; which resulted in an 88-0 victory.

With five straight wins this season the Cougars are sitting comfortably at the top of the Central Alberta Football League with an impressive point spread of +314.

Cougars #34, Kyle Dennis, opened up the scoring after catching his first pass of the game and completing a 40-yard dash to the end zone.

The points train at this point was just starting to take off as shortly after Dennis’ first touchdown, Cougars Quarterback, Jacob Lewis split the Bulldog’s Defence to run in his first of three touchdowns that game.

With touchdowns from Hayden Scheerschmidt, Luc Bryson, Braden O’Connor and Colby Neihaus, alongside 10 out of 11 attempts at a field goal completed by Callum Levers, it was apparent that all aspects of the Cougars offensive line were a force not to be reckoned with.

It wasn’t just the Cougars offense that was impressive to watch.

With a lot of size and experience heading the Cougars’ defensive line, the Bulldogs found themselves running into an impenetrable wall time and time again.

Whether it was the numerous sacks, the D-lines ability to recover a fumbled ball, or #74 Cade Wilkie’s impressive pick 6 (interception resulting in a touchdown), the Cougars Defensive end was as solid as one could hope for.

As the Cougars head into their final two games of regular season play, the coaches are upping their conditioning, and constantly adding new weapons to their arsenal.

Although they are sitting over 145 points ahead of second place, that doesn’t guarantee them to move forward.

With the final two games played on their home field the Cougars are going to have to stay focused, disciplined, and remain healthy for the remainder of their season.

It’s at this point where the games not only take a more physical turn, but the psychological effect the cold and snow can have is always going to be against them.

The Cougars will be taking on the Springbank Phoenix this coming Saturday, Oct. 12th, kick-off is at 11 a.m.

So come on out and cheer them on as they push to keep their undefeated streak going.
