Senior Titans top Trojans 28-10
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.
