Pincher Creek's Novice Chinooks played an away seeding game vs Kainai on October 25. The Chinooks racked up a convincing win. According to Chinooks Coach Jamie Anderson, "Every single Chinook got at least one goal this morning! So proud of everyone! Thank you and great job coaches!" and "Great teamwork! Lots of passing!"  The Novice Chinooks will be bringing it home to the MCC Arena in Pincher Creek this Saturday November 1, when it will be there turn to host Kainai, starting at 5:00 pm.

Season ends for Senior Mustangs 

Pincher Creek's Senior Mustangs were blanked by a considerable margin by the #2 ranked Claresholm Cobras on October 24.  That loss ended the season for the Mustangs.  Mustangs Booster Association Faith Zachar, who is THE expert on football in Pincher Creek, said afterward she was gratified by the game, despite the score.  She said the Mustangs showed a great deal of sportsmanship during the tough competition against a much larger and generally older and more experienced team, a very marked improvement over their behaviour when they hosted Claresholm early in the season, behaviour which at that time earned the Mustangs disciplinary actions by their own coaches.  "We were so proud of our boys last night," Zachar said.  "What a big difference."  Zachar said the team almost got three touchdowns, including one that was achieved but pulled back on a penalty call.  

The Mustangs will be holding a Skills/BBQ/gear return event next Saturday, November 1 at Matthew Halton field, tentatively scheduled to start around noon.

Mustangs annual awards night to be held November 8

The Mustangs Football Club will be holding their annual awards night on Saturday November 8, starting at 6:00 pm.  This year the potluck event will be held at St. Michael's School. 

Rocky start for Rockies

The AA Peewee Rockies have newly rebooted this season after many years of dormancy, and so far it seems like they're having a building year after 5 losses.  The AA Bantam Rockies have lost all 8 games they've played this season.  Being on these teams definitely exposes the athletes to competition of a different calibre, but a breakthrough game for either of them has been elusive so far.  However, it's still very early in the season.
