Se­nior Ti­tans fall to Brooks

The Drumheller Mail - - SPORTS - Pa­trick Ko­lafa

The Ti­tans knew Brooks was go­ing to be a tough op­po­nent last Fri­day night, but what was tougher for the team was the re­al­iza­tion they could have been in the game.

The Ti­tans hosted the Brooks Buf­fa­los last Fri­day un­der the bright lights, but fell 20-6. Coach Ken Fournier felt the team could have com­peted bet­ter.

“We knew Brooks was go­ing to be tough, I think the frus­trat­ing part about it was the guys knew in the locker room after it was a game we could have won,” said Fournier.

He said the team fell short of the game they were ca­pa­ble of play­ing.

“It was lack of ex­e­cu­tion due to lack of ag­gres­sion. They just didn’t fire out of the gate and were un­fo­cused,” he said. “We didn’t ex­e­cute plays prop­erly.”

“Our guys have to re­al­ize that tak­ing bad penal­ties and mak­ing mis­takes against tough op­po­nents will cost you.”

There were some bright spots with big games from Cory Kroeger, Noah Miles, and Ethan Dun­calf. Der­rick Car­rier was back in the line-up.

Fournier’s hope is that his young team keeps pro­gress­ing, look­ing to be con­fi­dent and ag­gres­sive on the field.

“I think they are try­ing to find it within them­selves to beat these tougher op­po­nents, and they are just learn­ing how to,” he said. “When it comes down to it these guys want to win, but we need to show them how to have bet­ter fo­cus and come out of the gates harder. I felt we were flat footed, and a lit­tle un­fo­cused on our in­di­vid­ual tasks and over­all it cre­ated sloppy plays.”

This week the Ti­tans are on the road to face the Medicine Hat Vik­ings Fri­day night.
