The Drumheller Terrapins finished their season with a homestand on Saturday evening, falling to Innisfail in the playoffs.
The Terrapins, with a young squad, played well all season. They ran into a tough Innisfail squad on Saturday, October 26. They were able to play three quarters before there was a malfunction with the lights at the field and the game had to be called early. Innisfail had a 20-0 lead.
“We were supposed to play under the lights but the wind storm blew the breaker,” explains Paul Redmond. “We managed to get three quarters in.”
Despite the end of the season, he said the team played well all year.
“I am happy with how they played. We didn’t have very many Grade 7s, so for what we did and what we accomplished, we did pretty good,” said coach Redmond.
The Terrapins were 1-4-1 in the regular season and had many highlights, showing growth and progression throughout the season, even with a short bench.
“We kind of struggled with attrition,” said coach Redmond.
“At this level, it is about learning and having fun.”
