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.
