The Sylvan Lake Bears peewee football team has enjoyed success in recent weeks, having won its two most recent games.

The Bears started the season with their first game in Red Deer at Great Chief Park against the Red Deer Hornets, and lost by one point. The next game on Sept. 20 saw the Bears playing the Rocky Mountain House Rebels in Sylvan Lake, resulting in a tie. On Sept. 27, the Bears hosted another home game against the Innisfail Cyclones and won 50-0.

The Bears’ most recent game on Oct. 4 saw them defeat the Lacombe Explosion 42-0, again at home. The team wore pink tape on their helmets and some players had pink socks in awareness of breast cancer for the game. Referees also had pink penalty flags.

The Bears have two more games in their regular season: they play against Drumheller away on Oct. 11. On Oct. 18, they then play Olds at McMahon Stadium in Calgary at 1 p.m. This could be a once-in-a-lifetime chance for most of these boys. What a great opportunity.

The Bears this year are coached by Garnet Rambaut (head coach), Geoff Rambaut (offensive line co-ordinator) and John Flinn (defensive line co-ordinator). The team trainer is Kerri Gauvin and the team manager is Stacey Brown.

The Bears team consists of 26 players: Samuel Jones (5), Rhylan Selk (7), Matthew McDiarmid (8), Ewan Ballantyne (10), Daxton Bylsma (17), Diezel West (18), Nathan Meadows (21), Nathaniel Pan (24), Cody Peever (25), Reuben Braitenback (27), Orrin Ahlstrom (29), Jacob Gauvin (32), Warren Stewart-Brown (44), Alfie Lindley (51), Carson Kichula (54), Zane Johnson (55), Aydan Waters (57), Ashton Hammer (59), Ethan Galliford (60), Brody Henry (62), Arden Kasha (67), Brodey Duperon (68), Cole Matthews (69), Jaycob Johanneson (77), Brady Holladay (82) and Tytan Lehman (88).
