Stettler Wildcats lost their game in Camrose 40-6 last Thursday, Oct.8 when cold weather played a role in the defeat, according to the coaching team.

Wildcats had 15 first-downs, 219 yards rushing, and 35 yards passing, completed four of six passes by Dustin Dayman.

Wildcats fumbled four times and lost all four and received a total of three penalties for 35 yards.

Josh Meyer was again the most prolific player of the Wildcats carrying the ball 29 times for 179 yards with Jared Steinwand following him with six carries for 37 yards,

In receiving Drew Hunt caught two passes in 21 yards and Josh Meyer had one for 12, which was the touchdown.

Wildcats assistant coach Mark Siemens said the cold weather made it very hard for their players to control the ball.

“I think it was about minus 10 degrees when we started the game, “ said Siemens.

“It was one of those games where we offensively moved the ball pretty well. I thought our line played one of the better games of the year. But when you are playing in that kind of cold, it’s tough to hang on to the ball.”

Siemens said the difficulty in handling the ball resulted in the fumbles and misplays “which ended up hurting our team.”

“The Camrose team just played better in those conditions than we did.”

Wildcats will be looking forward to ending the season with a win when they host Sylvan Lake on Friday, Oct. 16 at 4 p.m.
