“This was not our best game,” commented Tartans Head Coach Ryan Hall after the game.  “We came out lethargic, took some costly penalties, and the Spartans jumped on us with a strong performance.”

“We are looking forward to a full week of practice to refocus on our mental preparation and technical execution.”

Balfour Redmen 1

“Myles was solid on both sides of the ball,” assessed Bears Head Coach Darcy Olynyk. “We could rely on him when we needed a momentum change or big play; he’s  one of our Grade 11 captains and really came to play.”

“Defensively we have a lot to fix and we will moving forward. Final score was 44-14 as their depth began to beat us in the second half. They are a great team. We play PA St, Mary’s Thursday at 3 and need to get back in the win column. It should be a good game against another 4A opponent.”
