U18 soccer takes another win at home, undefeated this season

Braving the cold winds to shutout Bowden 4-0, a first for the team’s goalie, the U18s are starting to take shape into a dominating soccer team with good chances to making finals.
The U18s beat Three Hills 6-1 on May 12.
“We have a skilled team this year,” said coach Martin McSween. “We are hoping to be in the finals again for the district this year but we will be taking each game as a new challenge one game at a time.”

U18’s take home first win, potential strong season ahead

They were scheduled to face Hanna at home last week, but the game was rained out. “The game against Carstairs was not an indicator to how well we’ll do this season, they weren’t very strong and I don’t know how the other teams are this year,” McSween said.

Lacrosse teams have early success

    The novice team fought some hard battles with two games on Saturday, May 2 in Red Deer and Didsbury, and one more game in Trochu on Sunday. This talented team of six to eight-year-olds came out of Red Deer with a win and a loss, and suffered another loss against Three Hills. All the games were extremely close on the score board and the team was all smiles, and sweat! 
    The pee wee team has been enjoying a great season so far and Saturday was no different with Drumheller emerging as the victors after two games in Red Deer.  They have many secret weapons on both the defensive and offensive ends, including a goalie who assisted two goals for his team.  Way to go pee wees.
