The Sylvan Lake Peewee Bears recorded their sixth shutout in a row on Saturday to become champions of the Central Alberta Peewee Football Association Division 1 league.

The Bears travelled to Strathmore, where they defeated the first-placed Strathmore Spartans 38-0.

The day started with cool and dry conditions, but by the end of the game, the boys had played in rain, sleet and snow.

The Bears finished their season in third place and took out the two top teams to earn the title. The boys were extremely excited to bring home the trophy and will now move forward to provincials.

On Saturday (Nov. 8), they’ll take on the Bonnyville Bandits at HJ Cody School. The game kicks off at 11 a.m.
