The Senior Drumheller Titans football team has claimed the top spot in Tier IV provincial rankings after soundly defeating the Canmore Wolverines.
The Titans Field was a hive of activity on Saturday, September 17 with a triple header. The Senior Titans took the field at 1 p.m. to play the Wolverines.
The Titans dominated on both ends of the ball and walked off the field with a 26-0 victory.
“I liked our start. We had a couple of random bounces happen, but the boys didn’t seem to let that bother them and continued pushing forward, which was nice to see,” said head coach Ken Fournier. “Defense put on a much better performance. We had three interceptions from Ben Messom, and five sacks from Teigan Sattler. On offence, the ball was distributed around, and got our receivers involved, and runningbacks. The offence was working.”
He is especially impressed with the defence, as they were able to shutout the Wolverines.
“I have always been a defence-first guy, so the shutout was nice. There was some nice bounce for our defence, we did a couple of things differently,” said Fournier. “As the season goes on and you start seeing teams that you play more frequently you can prepare a little bit better, and put together a better game plan, and that was evident and the guys definitely stepped it up this week.”
With this win, the Titans have a 3-1 record, and have a bye this coming week. On September 30, they are hosting Brooks.
While the Titans are sitting in first place, coach Fournier says while it feels good, he knows it is early in the season and the results can be very fluid, and he expects them to change as teams begin regular play.
“It is nice to get the recognition,” he said.

The Carbon Curling Club/ Archery Range was a hive of activity as some of the best young archers in Alberta descended on the village for the first of three Fall tryout camps for the Canada Winter Games archery team. The event was successful, with all the athletes participating in scoring rounds, individual match play and team rounds. The athletes also spent time training with sports nutrition and sports psychology professionals. The athletes are all ready to move on to the first round of eliminations in Blackfalds in October, where the group will be reduced to four athletes in each of the four categories and the final camp in November, where it will be further reduced to one athlete in each category.

The second annual Drumheller Charity Classic Disc Golf tournament was played out at the Midland Provincial Park course. About 30 players signed up for the event, both local and from out of town, to take on the rugged terrain. Last year at the inaugural tournament it raised funds for the Foodbank. This year they directed the funds raised to Canada Blod Services and raised about $2,000. Left, Cam White goes for the basket while playing in the men’s intermediate category.
