Though a discouraging game Oct. 22 left the Broncs disheartened, the high school football team is heading to the playoff Oct. 28 in Drayton Valley.

“We used the last game’s beating as a learning experience and we are taking that with us to the playoffs next week,” said football coach Scott MacGregor.

The Broncs last regular season football game was a disappointment for the team. The Broncs were beaten 54-8 by Buck Mountain — an undefeated team this season — but despite the loss, Ponoka is ranked third in the South Division.

“Football has been a character builder for all athletes on this team,” said MacGregor. “We steadily improved throughout the season.”

The team will make its first playoff appearance at 3 p.m. in Drayton Valley Oct. 28, and depending on the results, will continue in playoffs or be finished for the season.
