The Bantam Titans will be battling Lacombe for the bronze medal this weekend on their home turf.
The Bantam Titans have had a great season, earning their way into the top tier of the league. On Saturday, October 26, their playoff run began on a windswept snowy field in Sylvan Lake.
“It was a different kind of game, the first time playing in the snow all year,” said coach Thomas Laffin.
Coach Laffin explains they played Sylvan Lake in their first game of the season and Sylvan Lake won by 12 points. This time the contest was much closer with Sylvan Lake winning a 13-12 heartbreaker.
“This was a significantly better game. There were some rough patches where we felt it was going against us, it was a tough game the whole way through,” said coach Laffin. “If it wasn’t for a couple of calls and three or four inches of snow, it could have been a different turnout.”
This weekend the Titans will be playing Lacombe for the first time this season. Coach Laffin says they have scouted the team a little bit and know a little bit about their game.
“We are coming up with a good game plan to go up against them,” said Laffin. “We are excited to still be in the playoff and going for third place.”
“It has been a while since Drumheller was in A division. We are excited about that achievement and had an amazing season.”
