The defending provincial champion Drumheller Titans have started the season ranked in the top spot after a convincing win over Canmore.
The Titans are 2-0 after an exhibition win versus Brooks in exhibition play, and on Saturday, September 9, the Titans hosted Canmore. It was supposed to be a road game, but due to difficulty finding officials, the Titans were able to open the league season on their home turf.
The Titans marched onto the field shoulder to shoulder and left the field with a 37-0 win.
“It was 14-0 going in the half, said Coach Ken Fournier. The Titans came out in the second half, and returned the ball for a touchdown, and then had a 91-yard run in for another.
The Titans never looked back, making big plays to take the win. Fournier said they were mixing up the offence during this game.
“We wanted to spread the ball around and focus on that. We didn’t want to make it a one-view punch, we wanted to make sure we were going through everything, not just doing one thing at a time,” said Fournier.
He adds the team has made strides in all aspects of the game.
“Defense was doing the right things, special teams were much improved,” he said.
He would like to clean up some of the simple mistakes, including taking more penalties than he would like to see.
“We were making mental errors, like guys weren’t lining up in the right spots,” said Fournier. “We have a lot of new bodies in the last week or so coming out, so there was a little confusion with what is expected.”
The Titans are travelling to Lethbridge this weekend for a tough matchup versus Catholic Central.
