Sylvan Lake Bear Brett Bylama blasts past an Innisfail Cyclone player during a game held in Sylvan Lake on Saturday.

Bears defeat Cyclones on home field

The Sylvan Lake Pee-Wee Bears Football team ran home a big win over the weekend against the Innisfail Cyclones

The Sylvan Lake Pee-Wee Bears Football team ran home a big win over the weekend against the Innisfail Cyclones with a final score of 31-7.

Played on home turf the game saw a good turn out of local fans. The Bears rallied a tenacious offense to run home multiple touchdowns in combination with a stout defense which only allowed the Cyclones to see their end zone once.

The Bears, although young, are a highly athletic young group with a good deal of speed and agility present throughout their roster. The team’s strong roster pays off in more ways than one said head coach Garnet Rambaut.

He explained the Cyclones are a strong team and he expected Saturday’s match up to be higher scoring on their opponents end. However, the Cyclones short bench left them out matched against Sylvan’s robust roster. The Cyclones cycled through 16 players where as the Bears boasted a whopping 30 pairs of feet on the field.

“We’ve got a good team, they work hard in practice and they are improving every game,” said Rambaut. “As the season gets on we will see more and more competition. This game was good for them because it woke us up and showed us they weren’t laying down.”

Undefeated so far this season the Bears are looking forward to another action packed season. The 2015/16 season saw the Bears blow through their semi-final opponents to face the Red Deer Steelers in league finals. This Saturday, Oct. 1 at 11 a.m. the Bears will see their nemeses, the Steelers for the first time this season on their home field at H.J. Cody High School.

The Sylvan Lake Bantam Lions are doing well so far this season with a 1-1 streak. The Lions took their first loss to Hunting Hills High School. The team will play their next home game on Oct. 1 at 1 p.m. following the Bears game.

The H.J. Cody Lakers are also on an undefeated stretch with their season home opener taking place this Thursday, Sept. 29 at 4:30 p.m. against Rocky Mountain House and the community is invited to join the Lakers by cheering them on.
