A week of growth for the Peewee Mustangs

Here comes another weekly report from the Pincher Creek Mustangs PeeWee stables.

After the game we had in Lethbridge on the 10th we needed to work on some offence and defence.



On the defence side of things we were lucky enough that the Bantams allowed us to run defence on their offence plays. Let me tell you it was a blast! The kids were in it breaking the line and were within centimeters of a “quarterback sac.” It was a lot of fun for the kids, and the coaching staff. Thank you again to Chris, Stan and all the bantams there that night, we need to do it again.

The offence was a night of running plays on air. Doing the plays over and over till I felt that they had them. Also we introduced some more plays and tweaked some of the ones we had already learnt. This week coming up we will be doing the same, but now we may run a little pressure on ourselves as we now have 17 Stangs in our stable. As most know we only play 12 on the field at one time. With 5 extra and a few of us coaches acting as defence I think we can also fine tune our offence.

On to our home game on the 17th against the Cardston Cougars. First and foremost I want to thank the PeeWee parents for the help with the game, also would like to thank the Senior and Bantam Mustangs for cheering on the little guys. We could hear your cheers on the field and made us feel proud to be part of the organization. Again we started a little weak, but just like last week we were able to get our heads in the game. This time it was a lot earlier. The kids allowed some plays to get by them and let the Cougars into the end zone, but this was only the case in the first half of the game. The second half of the game we had some amazing tackles from our defence. Our offence had some plays go exactly as planned and we got so close to the end zone we could smell it, but the Cougars held us there.

So far this season it has been a learning curve for some, including myself. Like I said last week we can and will move up and on, taking these past games as stepping stones to a better team and a better game.

Till next week,
Coach Jeremy
