Drumheller Titans shut out Olds in season opener

IMG 3803

The Titans attacked in the air and on the ground in their home opener.
    The DVSS field was a hive of activity Thursday, August 28 with a doubleheader. Teams from Wetaskiwin and Brooks hit the field, followed by the Senior Titans in their season debut against Olds.
    This was also the Titans first league game and they were strong from start to finish, walking off the field with a 47-0 win.
    “I think for the first time in a long time we had more passing touchdowns than we had running,” said head coach Ken Fournier. “Our quarterback Ethan Jones had four passing touchdowns and two he ran in himself. He had a heck of a game.
    He said Jones had about 300 yards passing and Chase Sattler has 200 yards receiving. Braden Mazereeuw also had a big game. Coach Fournier says they want a balanced approach to their offense.
    “We committed ourselves to distributing the ball sideline to sideline and the guys bought into that and they seem to really be enjoying the system,” said Fournier. “It has been a lot of work and the guys seem to be really diligent in learning how to accomplish that, and working hard on developing the skills to do that.”
    This gives them the option to distribute the ball to five or six players rather than just one or two.
    Coach Fournier said that Olds had a solid attack running and throwing, but the Titans’ defense stood tall.
    “We just didn’t allow the big plays to happen,’ said Fournier. “We had a few new guys on the defensive line who played really well.”
    The Titans are still looking for a few players to fill out their roster. Last Thursday they were missing a few players who are committed to the program and also brought up a couple of Bantam players to fill the bench. Potential players can come from Drumheller or surrounding communities.  To learn more check out www.drumhellerfootball.com
