Se­nior Ti­tans fall to Taber to end sea­son

The Drumheller Mail - - SPORTS - Pa­trick Ko­lafa

The sea­son ended on a tough note for the Se­nior Ti­tans as the Tab er Rebels knocked them out of the post sea­son.

The Rebels bested the Ti­tans on of­fence and de­fence. It took un­til the dy­ing min­utes of the third quar­ter when Der rick Car­rie re scored for Drum hell er. It was too lit­tle too late as the Rebels went on to a 36-7 win.

For c oach Fournier, his a ssess­ment of the game was sim­ple, and he g ives Taber credit.

“They didn’ t make mis­takes ,” he said fol­low­ing the game .“They kept com­ing right at us, they weren’t afraid to run it.”

“They ran hard and blocked well, they played a sim­ple straight­for­ward game and they didn’t make mis­takes at it. “

While that ends the sea­son for the se­nior Ti­tans, for some play­ers it ends their time in wear­ing black and gold. Coach Fournier is see­ing four se­niors on of­fence and four on de­fence grad­u­ate.

“For the se­niors, it was not the end we would have liked for them, but for there turn­ing guys we had, they are the ones who put us in po­si­tion to play in this game and have that op­por­tu­nity. I hope the young play­ers un­der­stand that and see the sac­ri­fices they made and are pre­pared to do the same next year.”

The out­look is bright for the re­turn­ing young core next sea­son. Fournier rec­og­nizes the progress the team has made.

“We im­proved in many ar­eas and we will be on the look­out to fill some tough shoes next year, hope­fully th­ese young guys can learn.”
