By Kevin J Sabo, For the Independent

The Stettler Wildcats continued their winning ways.

Playing the Ponoka Broncos in their first under the lights game of the season on the field at Wm. E. Hay School, the Wildcats handed the Broncos a 69-0 defeat in front of the hometown crowd.

“We controlled and dominated every aspect of that game,” said Thomas Schmidt, the Wildcats offensive line and defensive line coach.

Thanks to the solid play of the first-string players that set the tone for the game, the coaching staff was able to get some of the Wildcats rookies into the lineup allowing everyone on the team to get some experience.

The Wildcats started the game strong, scored early in the first quarter and kept the momentum on their side. The score was 45-0 by the half-time.

The Wildcats hope to stretch their win streak to five games when they travel to Wetaskiwin on Oct. 4.
