The Ponoka Composite High School football team has completed its regular season against Wetaskiwin.
Despite a 47-13 loss, head coach Scott MacGregor is looking forward to their playoff game against Lindsey Thurber High School Oct. 19 at Great Chief Park in Red Deer at 4 p.m.
It is their last game of the season and will give the two teams in last place some experience with playoffs.
“It’s a consolation playoff final,” explained MacGregor.
The challenge for the Broncs against Wetaskiwin was their quarterback. “Wetaskiwin was lights out with their passing game.”
The team adjusted their game in the second half and were able to slow down the quarterback with a stronger offence. “We got more pressure to the quarterback and as a result his passes were inaccurate,” stated MacGregor. “The best defense is a good offense because they can’t score if they don’t have the ball.”
He feels the offensive line was able to make some large plays because they took control of the ball.
