The S enior Ti­tans ar e sport­ing a 2-1 r ecord af ter a con­vinc­ing w in a t home ver­sus Olds.

The Ti­tans st arted t he sea­son r olling w ith a w in over Pincher Creek, but lost to Can­more 15-25. Last Satur­day they hosted Olds and tram­pled the Spar­tans 41-6. Coach K en Fournier like s his t eam’s pro­gres­sion. In fact, he f elt t hat t he C an­more loss was in reach.

“We fum­bled the ball five times and turned over three times a t our ow n 30- yard line. S o when you lo ok a t the score that makes all the dif­fer­ence,” said Fournier.

They cle aned up s ome of those mist akes ver­sus Olds last Satur­day night. Der­rick Car­rier le d t he t eam w ith three touch downs. De­spite this, Four ni er says there is still room to im­prove.

“We still racked up penal­ties,” he said. “We had two touch­down plays called back and a few drives that were halted be­cause of penal­ties.”

“We have the abil­ity to score, we just have to be more dis­ci­plined on re­tain­ing po­si­tion to be able to strike.”

One b oost t he t eam ha s had of late is a longer bench.

“We wen t in to our first game w ith 18 dr essed. A t this game (Olds) we had 33. We have had a large jump in play­ers and it helps im­prove the qual­ity of prac tice,” said Fournier.

“With th­ese type of prac­tices that are more struc­tured, we can move young play­ers for­ward, and add depth to key po­si­tions.”

The Ti­tans will have their work cut out for them this com­ing week­end as they travel to Taber to play W.R. My­ers. They are cur­rently ranked third in Tier IV.

“They are al­ways a strong team and had a very strong run­ning game last year. We are go­ing to have to po­ten­tially look at elim­i­nat­ing their large runs ,” said Fournier.
