Bantam Titans face undefeated Olds Bulldogs

IMG 5995

The Bantam Titans are having a strong season, but they ran into a formidable opponent on Saturday afternoon when they faced the Olds Bulldogs.
The Bantams hosted the Bulldogs on October 1. What started out looking like an even match game, with both teams scoring on their first opportunities, The Bulldogs took over.
“Olds are undefeated. They have some good numbers,” said Coach Brad Iverson. “We are a fairly young team, so they were a little older than us.”
The extra experience on the Olds squad was evident as they went on to a 60-14 win.
“It was a bit of a tough one with Olds there, but overall it has been a good year so far. Prior to that, we had two wins and a tie,” said Iverson.
“Everyone was pretty good after the loss, no one was really down.”
He has high hopes for the coming season, with his young squad.
“That’s why I’m happy this year we have 19 of our 25 kids coming back next year, so that bodes pretty well that we are having a good season so far,” he said.
The strength of the team is coming on the offensive end.
“Prior to last game, we scored over 50 points every game, so the offence has been going really good,” he said. “The commitment of the kids has been really good too. They are coming to practice and having fun, so that’s important.”
The Bantams are playing in a nine-team league, playing 9 per-side football.
This week Iverson explains he has arranged an exhibition game against the Calgary Cowboys Bantam community team at McMahon Stadium.
“They are a community team and play in the Calgary Bantam Football associations. They have a 12-man team that plays in the regular league and a nine-man team because they get quite a few kids out… after that it’s the playoffs.”
