Bears stung by Hornets in second loss of the season

Sylvan Lake Bears peewee football team suffered their second loss of the season Saturday, when they fell 6-0 to Red Deer Hornets at H.J. Cody Field.

Head coach Garnet Rambaut said there was no change in his team from the week before, when the Bears defeated Olds 14-0. He saw the same effort put in by his players, who found themselves unable to come back into the close game.

“We had our chances and we had a few dropped balls and a few missed blocks, and that was the difference in the game,” he said. “But as far as the players, they played hard. That’s all I ask of them. They’re not going to win every game.”

Rambaut said Saturday’s game was a solid team effort. The Bears had a roster of 19 players, and are expected to have that same number available when they face Red Deer Steelers in Sylvan Lake on Saturday.

The Steelers head into the game with the same 2-2 record as the Bears, and Rambaut is expecting a good game.

“It should be an interesting matchup,” he said.

Saturday’s game against the Steelers takes place at 3:30 p.m. at H.J. Cody Field.
