The Peewee Terrapins football team had a busy season practicing and last Saturday they had the chance to put their skills into play versus Stettler.
The Terrapins have had a modified training regime because of COVID-19. Due to the pandemic, the league cancelled its season. The terrapins have however been training all summer, learning the game.
Coach Brad Iverson explains rules state two teams are able to form a cohort and are able to play, so long as there are no more than 50 people between the two teams.
This allowed the Terrapins to cohort with the Stettler Panthers and on Saturday, September 12, the Terrapins travelled to Stettler to play in a nine a side match.
It was an exciting high scoring game. The Panthers were leading in the fourth quarter, when Chase Mackey scored on the final play of the game, winning 36-34.
Coach Iverson is assisted with coaching by Jason Rasmussen and recent Drumheller Titan alumni Ethan Duncalf and Jackson Upton. He says they have a young team who are excited to learn the game.
“They are like sponges, they have come along very well,” Iverson said.
He says they will be wrapping up the season towards the end of September.
Before that, the Terrapins will be hosting the Stettler Panthers on Friday, September 18 at 6 p.m. at the DVSS field.
