Right from the start, the Wildcats played a charged game on Thursday, Sept. 15, as they defeated Ponoka Broncs 70-0, scoring 10 touchdowns, with subsequent converts.

The touchdowns were scored by different players, which gave the team a great balance. Two touchdowns were scored by Teron Garbutt and Alex LeBlanc each, while Kam Bainbridge, Mitchell Gudgeon, Trey Nichols, Jordan Lane, Steele Nichols and Noah McKay each scored one.

“Our football played well again this week,” said Head Coach Norbert Baharally. “Collectively, we were able to dominate Ponoka on both sides of the ball. These one-sided games are the types of games that as a coach or player you really never want to be involved in.”

Baharally said the game needed to be played, and he was very proud of the guys for playing with a lot of hustle, pride and enthusiasm right to the end.

According to Guy Neitz, quarterback coordinator, it was not about winning.

“Before the game I emphasized to the boys that the game tonight wasn’t just about winning; it was about improving in every aspect of our game,” said Neitz. “It was about us executing our offence and game plan as well as we could so that we will be the type of offence that we want to be.”

Baharally added that the next three games would be a “better test” for the Wildcats as a team because they would be up against three very strong opponents and all on the road: Wetaskiwin, Camrose and Sylvan Lake.

Wildcats play Wetaskiwin on Friday, Sept. 23 in Wetaskiwin at 7:30 p.m.
