|Bandits inch closer to division leaders|
Brooks Bandits inched closer to the two top South Division teams this past weekend with back-to-back wins.
Both the Camrose Kodiaks and Drumheller Dragons hold a share of top spot with eight points. The Bandits have six points and earned two of them with a win over the Dragons last Saturday night.
First up was the Okotoks Oilers. The Oilers got off to a great start, scoring the opening goal but fell 4-2 to their hosts Friday night at the Centennial Regional Arena.
Stephen Doan opened the scoring against netminder Josh Davies at 5:20 but the Bandits scored the equalizer on a breakaway goal by Austin Plevy (assists Shane Bear and Adam Baughman) at 9:38. The goal was set up on a nice stretch pass from defenseman Shane Bear. Full Story >
|Buffalos pick up first football win of season|
Brooks Composite High Buffalos moved into the win column Friday during Rangeland Football Conference play.
The Buffalos traveled to Drumheller and returned home with a 20-16 victory.
The win was particularly sweet for the Buffalos who dropped games earlier this month to the Crescent Heights Vikings and Medicine Hat High Mohawks.
Tre Mawer was given the starting job of quarterback in place of Lucas Roth. Roth was banged up in play against the Mohawks but did see some action defensively in the second half. Full Story >

Running back Hugo Silva had a huge game for Brooks, scoring six touchdowns. Zach Delaney, Carlos Meza-Gomez both scored one touchdown while Andres Rojas kicked the converts.
“We knew that they were going to be one of the weaker teams in the league based on what we saw in the jamboree but I give them a lot of credit. There was no quit in them,” said head coach Julian Annicchiarico. Full Story >
