The Se­nior Ti­tans came out strong on Satur­day af­ter­noon ver­sus the Cam­rose Tro­jans and cruised to a 28-10 win.

The Drumheller team hosted the Tro­jans at their Mil­i­tary Ap­pre­ci­a­tion Game, which in­cluded a cer­e­mony to hon­our those who fought for Canada. The team wore cam­ou­flage uni­forms and mem­bers of the King’s Own Cal­gary Reg­i­ment were on hand. Right away, Noah Miles was able to run in a touch­down on the Ti­tan’s first charge, but Cam­rose kept it close.

In the sec­ond half how­ever, the Ti­tans ran away with a 28-10 win. Coach Ken Fournier was hap­pier with the play of his team.

“It was a bet­ter game for us dis­ci­pline wise, we did get some penal­ties that stalled some of­fen­sive drives, and one that con­tin­ued a de­fen­sive drive, which they scored on. If you take those out of the games it tells a dif­fer­ent story,” said Fournier.

Fournier gives Cam­rose credit for run­ning the ball well, as well as cap­i­tal­iz­ing on a cou- ple pass­ing plays, how­ever over­all the Ti­tan’s de­fense stood tall.

“We had good cov­er­age, our young guys in Grade 9 and 10 def­i­nitely stepped up and are play­ing with a lot more con­fi­dence now,” said Fournier.

He says this week the team will be work­ing on its of­fense.

“The pass­ing wasn’t what we wanted it to be so we will be work­ing on it in prac­tice,” said Fournier. “Our strong run­ning game will com­ple­ment the pass­ing. They have to re­spect the run, which puts us in the po­si­tion to cap­i­tal­ize on putting the ball down the field ev­ery once in a while, so we have to be able to do that.”

This Fri­day night the Ti­tans are host­ing Brooks, a strong team that just suf­fered a cou­ple losses to some tough teams.

They (Brooks) are look­ing for it to be a bounce back game, they are go­ing to be ready to play when they show up,” said Fournier. “Last year we lost to Brooks by a point. We are bet­ter than we were last year, but I ex­pect them to be too. They are go­ing to have a very fast ag­ile de­fense.”

Game time is 7 p.m.
