Titans top Olds in league play
The Senior Titans are continuing to build towards the postseason after a strong win over the Olds Spartans. The Titans were in Olds Friday afternoon, October 6, and played well from start to finish. They dominated the Spartans, winning 41-6. In fact, a number of penalties hampered the Titans and they saw six touchdowns called back.
“We were working on blocking the edge all week. We wanted to capitalize and expand on some of the things we have been working on,” said Coach Ken Fournier. “Both of our offensive sets seem to be clicking right now.”
Going into the game, they were short-handed being down both of their running backs. Ethan Enns was out due to a bruised shoulder and Derek Carriere was also out of the lineup.
It has been an up and down season for the Titans. They started out hoping to fill the bench. They now have the numbers and have continued to progress.
“It is a season we expected with a lot of changes. I expected we were going to start out a little rocky and then get better as the season went on. I am hoping we are continuing that path. We’ll find out Friday against Canmore.”
This will be the second time the Titans will face league rival Canmore. The first time they lost by nine points. This means the Titans need to win by 10 if they wish to secure homefield advantage in the league championship.
“These are the kind of games we want,” said Fournier.
He adds that it will be an opportunity for the Titans to redeem themselves.
“Last time we played Canmore we fumbled the ball three times inside our own 30-yard line, which resulted in their touchdowns,” he said. “If you take penalties and turnover out of those, it is going to be a much closer game. “
The Titans are currently ranked ninth among Tier IV teams.
