Rams make it six in a row at provincials

    The senior girls Standard Rams did just that over the weekend, beating St. Mary’s of Taber in the 1A provincial volleyball finals, and securing a sextet of championships since 2003.
    “The girls believed in themselve, believed in each other and worked very hard this season,” said coach Susan Moncks. “They were true ambassadors of Standard School, the communities it serves and of Golden Hills.”
    Last weekend they were unstoppable all day Saturday in Provost, and the momentum started against the home team, St. Thomas Aquinas.
    “Going into the semifinal we were a little bit concerned going against the hometown team,” said coach Moncks.

Raptors bring fight to Oyen

midget-hockey.jpgDrumheller didn’t go down without a fight against Oyen on Friday night, November 7, managing to find the back of the net twice before the clock ran down.
Final score was 5-2 for the visiting team.
The Sports Room Midget ‘A’ Raptors spent most of the night on the offensive, but however it seemed it was hard for them to find an opening other than firing from the top of the slot hoping the puck would find its way in.

Titans brave cold to beat Hanna

senior-titans.jpgThe Senior Titans stormed through the wind and snow to beat arch-rival Hanna, 33-7 in front of Hanna’s home crowd on Friday, October 10. The Titans held strong on the offensive as well as almost unbreakable on defense, despite the freezing weather and snow. The first, second, and third quarters saw three unanswered touchdowns in each quarter. Players were playing exceptionally well this game, they were able to move the ball down the field with ease and even more so, were able to shut down Hanna during the odd time they gained possession. The first three quarters of the game saw wingback/defensiveback Joa Markotic score two touchdowns. Markotic easily outran and outmaneuvered Hanna, with fancy footwork and spins, running it into the zone. Hanna scored their first touchdown with five minutes left in the last quarter, bringing the score to 27-7. The Titans quickly answered with another touchdown three minutes later, this one ran in by wingback Daulton Smith, leaving the scoreboard to a 33-7 point victory for Drumheller. Hanna’s bench only had about five players off at a time and there were rumors about the team was using Grade 9 bantams as fillers. Despite that, the Titans will gladly take the victory against the team that has become the target of hostility for last year’s Titans, and now this year’s. The Senior Titan’s next game is on Saturday, October 18 in Strathmore.
