Another great performance by Wildcats with six touchdowns had the Rebels packing early on with the final score being 48-0 on Monday, Oct. 17.

Among the touchdowns, three were scored by Teron Garbutt, two by Noah McKay and one by Justin Matchett. All converts but one were scored by the reliable Steele Nichols, the lone one being scored by Noah McKay.

Ty McCann and Keegan St. Denis scored a safety each with a single being scored by Mitchell Gudgeon in the fourth quarter.

“It was another great game by our guys to end our regular season of play. We finished with a record of 5-1,” said Head Coach Norbert Baharally. “Our defence had a great regular season giving up only 24 points all year. On the flip side, our offence racked up a lot of yardage this year behind our young offensive line that got better with each game they played.”

Even though the Wildcats team this year is made up of younger players, some impressive performance from them has made the difference.

“We had some pretty spectacular individual performance tonight. First, Ty McCann had an outstanding game for us on defence and with his special teams play,” added Baharally. “Teron Garbutt continued to have a great season with close to 200 yards rushing on 14 carries. Steele Nichols continued his great kicking, converting on all of our touchdowns scored tonight and was perfect for our entire season converting on every one of his points after touchdown attempts.”

Baharally also noted how Carson Neitz’s role has been integral to their game.

“Neitz stepped into a starting role tonight at quarterback because of Jordan Lane’s injury a little over a week ago and did an awesome job directing and controlling our offence,” explained Baharally. “We are now on our bye week which will give us a chance to try to get healthy as a team from some player injuries before starting our playoffs.”

The win has put Stettler Wildcats in second place for the year, with a playoff game at home at the end of October.
