Broncs football wins fifth straight

By Dale Cory

Make it five-straight wins and counting for the Ponoka Composite High School football squad.

The Broncs assured themselves a spot in the Western Alberta Six-man Football League playoffs with a 61-0 road victory over the Sedgewick Rams Oct. 22.

Through the five game winning streak, PCHS head coach Scott MacGregor has been adamant he would not run up the score on any team. However, in their latest game, the Broncos couldn’t help themselves from scoring points at will against a winless Sedgewick team that has scored just 13 points in five games.

“Sedgewick is just starting out in the league,” said MacGregor, “So we were able to give our younger players more playing time.”

Ponoka’s defence took control of the game early, with Amara Fofanah scoring two touchdowns off punt returns.

“Defensively, we are improving daily,” added MacGregor. “And we were able to kick two field goals. All around, it was a solid team effort.”

Ponoka’s final game of the regular season is set for Thursday, Oct. 28 at 4 p.m. at the PCHS football field.

The Broncs will face the Victory Christian Crimson Knights of Edmonton, who entered last weekend with two wins in five games.
