Lacrosse winds up season with fond memories and shorter hair

Never take a bet over a sports game, especially if it involves a dozen boys and your hair! 
    The Drumheller Bantam Lacrosse team got the opportunity to have a hand in shaving the heads of their three coaches after winning a 9-8 overtime game to start off the Central Alberta Lacrosse League Playoffs this past week in Red Deer.  This rough and tumble team had gone all season without a win or tie but managed to claw their way to a victory over Lacoka 2 on Wednesday, June 17. 
    The boys were very excited about the win and ecstatic about the hair cuts, And their coaches Tim Gendron, Shaun Fournier and Larry Wilton all demonstrated their true sportsmanship when on Thursday night each team member got a chance to take a little off the top!

    The Rage had a tough road to the final playing two games in one afternoon, however they were able to push their way through the semifinals, and eventually defeated the number one seed, all the while never conceding a goal.
    “I was really proud for the girls and happy for them because they achieved a first for Drumheller,” said coach Gavin Makse.

Back to back district titles for U18 soccer team

    The U18 were in Acme on Saturday, June 20 for the Big Country Soccer final. Because the Drumheller team won first place in league play, they earned a spot in the final, and had to watch and wait as Crossfield and Bowden battled for a chance to face Drumheller. Bowden beat out Crossfield to go to the final.
    Drumheller had a slow start, and found themselves up by only one goal after the first half. In the second half, Drumheller put on the pressure and Aleix Virallonga-Bach scored two more goals to earn his hatrick. Final score 3-nil.
