Titans top Olds in league play

The Drumheller Mail - - SPORTS - Pa­trick Ko­lafa

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.
