The new Big Sky League is getting the Senior Titans more games and more looks at different teams, and on Wednesday, September 27 they had a look at Carstairs.
The Titans played Carstairs in Didsbury, and blanked them 34-0.
“It was one of those games. It’s hard to prepare for a team that you have not seen a lot of,” said Head Coach Ken Fournier.
He said Carstairs came out with a similar offence to one that the Titans sometimes use. It took some time for the Titans to adjust to the small differences. The score was only 7-0 up until the half, but the Titans were able to hold Carstairs off.
On offense, the Titans used the game to work on their passing game.
“The idea on offence is we didn’t want to run the ball too much. We have kind of been relying on it so we wanted to make sure we spread the ball around in the air and it worked out for us,” said Fournier.
He says the team is continuing to progress, and getting better at the mental aspects of the game.
“You develop that stuff throughout the entire season. As league play goes on it will determine if things get cleaned up. I still think we took more penalties than we should have,” said Fournier.
His takeaway from the game was its success on offense.
“I was happy that throughout the game we started moving the ball in the air to different targets. It was not just one or two guys, we wanted to spread the ball around and make sure we were working on that stuff,” he said.
The Titans are hosting the Highwood Mustangs on Friday, October 6. Highwood is also relatively new, but it has been playing exhibition for two years developing its program. This season it made the jump to the senior level. This will also be the Titans’ Senior Night.
