Saturday, September 29, was a great afternoon for some football, as the Bantam Pincher Creek Mustangs faced down the Claresholm Raiders on the Matthew Halton field. The gorgeous warm weather only served the highlight the bright talent on the field, as the Mustangs pushed forward to a victory on what is quite likely their last home game of the season.

From the beginning of the first half, the Mustangs worked together to organize a solid defensive front. The Mustangs spent the first quarter denying the Raiders yardage and keeping the game on their own terms. The talented #41 Ben Riviere scored his first of four touchdowns just minutes into the game, securing the Mustangs an early lead. Later in the second quarter he would make another successful run to the end zone. 1 point kicks were made on both major scores, making the Mustang’s lead at the end of the half 14 – 0.

“They were a good team, they just didn’t have enough bodies” said Mustangs Coach Dan Crawford of the Raiders. “They started with thirteen guys, so they did awesome just to make it through the game. They played well, and we just executed our plays, and did everything we needed to do.”
“We had a good game,” Coach Crawford said. “We got to get all our subs in, everybody got to play. We played some new positions, tried some new plays… it’s working! Anybody that hasn’t come to watch is missing a great game.”
