Wildcats playing with their heart

Scoreboards do not always tell the truth about every game and the Wildcats’ football game against the Sabres of Wetaskiwin last Friday, Oct. 2, was certainly one game that the score was unfair to the losing team.

Flying TD - Wildcats’ most prolific player Josh Meyer scoring his third touchdown against the Wetaskiwin Sabres. Meyer had a great game with a total of more than 260 yards rushing.

Scoreboards do not always tell the truth about every game and the Wildcats’ football game against the Sabres of Wetaskiwin last Friday, Oct. 2, was certainly one game that the score was unfair to the losing team.

The Wildcats played their hearts out but still lost by a single point: 27-26.

Game stats speak for themselves: Wildcats had a total of 496 yards rushing against Sabres’ 315, their total offence was 504 yards against 408 of the opponent.

Josh Meyer had three TDs and Landon Potter had one, with Meyer also converting after his last TD at the end of the game.

Meyer had 37 carries for a total yardage of 266, followed by Potter with 14 carries with 137 yards. Jared Steinwand also had eight carries and Matthew Hataley contributed with four.

Head coach Norbert Baharally was happy with his team’s performance.

“I thought they had their best game of the year,” said Baharally.

“Definitely we are proud of the way the boys played at home against that team, they are ranked number seven provincially, considering the year that we are having, for us to be competitive with them was great to see.”

The coach said it was good to see the offense be able to establish a running game and put some yardage on the score sheet.

“Defensively, we played solid but we gave up four big plays and they scored touchdowns and that hurts.”

“The team effort made the coaching staff very proud, they played with determination and with a lot of heart.”

Wildcats travel to Camrose on Thursday, Oct. 8 for their penultimate game in the regular season.
