The Pee­wee Ter­rap­ins are con­tin­u­ing to show re­silience on the field as they bat­tled the Red Deer Steel­ers.

The Steel­ers were in Drumheller on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 7 at 11 a.m., and it was a de­fen­sive bat­tle from the get-go.

The Ter­rap­ins took the lead with a touch­down by quar­ter­back Ben Mes­som. He saw some bright points in the game. “The run­ning, the pass­ing and some­times block­ing,” said Ben.

With about three min­utes on the clock, the Steel­ers kept press­ing and tied the game at 6.

The Steel­ers then at­tempted a short kick and re­cov­ered the ball with pre­cious sec­onds tick­ing off the clock.

The Ter­rap­ins de­fense stood strong and they re­cov­ered the ball at mid­field. They con­tin­ued to drive, but ran out of time. Mes­som was happy with his team’s ef­fort.

“I was happy we didn’t give up,” said Ben.

The Ter­rap­ins played well but the Steel­ers came back at the last minute Satur­day af­ter­noon to end the game with a tie at 6.
