The Se­nior Ti­tans are on their way to the post­sea­son fol­low­ing a con­vinc­ing vic­tory over High­wood High.

The Ti­tans were in High River Satur­day af­ter­noon, Novem­ber 5 for a play-in round to qual­ify for the pro­vin­cial play­offs. The team was fir­ing on of­fence and de­fense, and walked off the field with a 4914 vic­tory.

“The game started out back and forth, we scored and then they scored. We went into half time up 22-14,” said coach Ken Fournier. “We ex­pected a shoot out at the be­gin­ning be­cause it’s two teams that have not seen each other in years.”

Our of­fense was fir­ing the whole game, and our de­fense only gave up a few big plays.” Derek Car­riere had four touch­downs in the con­test.

With this win, the Ti­tans qual­ify for the quar­ter­fi­nals and will face Taber next Satur­day af­ter­noon, Novem­ber 12, at home.

Coach Fournier say Taber has had a re­ally strong year and went un­de­feated up un­til their league cham­pi­onship. The two teams played once this sea­son, and while Taber had the up­per hand, it was a close con­test.

“We played them at the be­gin­ning of the year and we were miss­ing a lot of guys in that game,” said Fournier. “So of­fen­sively and de­fen­sively we will be a dif­fer­ent look­ing team.”

Fournier be­lieves the Ti­tans can be com­pet­i­tive ver­sus Taber, es­pe­cially now that the team is healthy.

“If we come out and play our game, a dis­ci­plined game, and ex­e­cute of­fen­sively and de­fen­sively and on spe­cial teams we will be in po­si­tion to win that game,” said Fournier.

Game time is 1 p.m.
