The Ponoka Composite High School Broncs faced off against the Buck Mountain Central Mustangs at a home game on Oct. 17. The Broncs won 39-38 cutting it close at the end but giving the Mustangs a run for their money throughout the entirety of the game.
Ponoka Broncs assistant coach Brady Teeling was pleased with how the Broncs played and says they had the upper hand for almost the whole game.
“The game went really well,” said Teeling. “We were up by 17 with about three minutes left but in the last two minutes we were fumbling, etc. and ended up cutting it close. But up until then we were dominating.”
The game against the Mustangs was the last game before the quarter-finals begin and the Broncs will take on the Mustangs again on Oct. 24.
“The winner of this game goes on to the semi-finals and the other team is done,” said Teening. “This next game is very crucial for us.”
The Broncs are coached by Scott MacGregor, Teeling, Darrell Feschuk, Larry Goodwin, Glen Kawahara and Deni Henderson. Managers are Carter Stebner and Kent Ungstad.
To prepare for the finals the team will be working on defense and focus on stopping the pass. On offence the players will be working on their strategy and their plays.
“We’ll be working on what we saw was a problem the last game,” said Teeling. “We’ll do what we did last time we played them.”
Teeling says the Broncs are dedicated to the team and have been practicing hard all season. He feels that the hard work that has been put in by the team has been paying off so far.
“The guys are very disciplined and reliable,” he said. “They work at it and show up on time and all that has been very effective.”
