Wetaskiwin Bantam Warriors drop road game to Camrose

Hwy. #13 rivalry ends in first loss of season for Warriors

Saturday Sept. 21 the Bantam Warriors battled our Highway 13 rivals the Camrose Buffaloes.

In the past this is always a tough game where the current win-loss Records are thrown out the window as both teams battle for supremacy. Saturday was no different with both teams battling hard.

As the game progressed the physicality of the game took its toll on us and though digging deep, our bench got shorter and shorter. Despite keeping the game close in the first half this allowed Camrose to widen the gap in the second. Eventually we made the difficult decision to end the game early choosing our players health and safety. Camrose handed us our first regular season loss 34-6.

We had new personnel taking over our backfield for the Camrose game, after last week’s win left us with a few injuries. However each player brings there own value to a position. Riley Orgill and Daniel Tomkinson both had some great moments in the Camrose game as they took over the backfield, with Orgill finding the end zone for his first ever rushing TD.

This week we will be looking to reload and refocus as we take on the SAMFA Fury at home on Norm Brown Field at 12:30 p.m. Saturday Sept 28th.
