Kyle Lawrence scores his second

Wildcats win comfortably in Ponoka

Stettler Wildcats traveled to Ponoka to face off with Broncs on Thursday, Oct. 9 for the last regular season game

Stettler Wildcats traveled to Ponoka to face off with Broncs on Thursday, Oct. 9 for the last regular season game, and dominating the field throughout, returned home with an impressive 35-0 win.

The first quarter saw the Broncs defense hold off the initial advances of the visiting Wildcats, even forcing a few turnovers, but two minutes from the end of the quarter, Stettler’s Austin Rosland scored the first touchdown and with the successful conversion Stettler boys took a 7-0 lead.

The beginning of the second quarter saw some revived attempts by the hosts but a second touchdown again by Rosland drowned the enthusiasm of the hosts leading to a complete domination on the field by the visitors. The first half ended 14-0 for the Wildcats.

Throughout the second half, a better-coordinated and more efficiently organized Wildcats team maintained possession without giving many chances to the Broncs.

And that brought about an explosion of speed, talent and athleticism by Kyle Lawrence, who scored all three touchdowns in the second half for the Stettler side.

Head coach Norbert Baharally, clearly ecstatic with the result said it was good to see both defense and special teams being able to score touchdowns.

“I think it went very well, we put together some nice drives and we were able to finish the drives,” Baharally said.

“When you have good balance of defense, offense and special teams, hopefully good things are going to happen,” he added.

With Wildcats having placed third at the end of the regular season and the Broncs sixth, the two teams will play against each other again on Wednesday, Oct. 15 at 4 p.m. in Stettler.

Wildcats will also be running a concession in support of the team during the game.
