The Strathmore Spartans Football team got another big win last Friday defeating Willow Creek High School in Claresholm 45-15. The Spartans still remain undefeated this season, as they are now 3-0 (4-0 if you include preseason). 

This is a nice win for Head Coach Danny Warrack, but he says that there is still some work that the team needs to do because if they are not disciplined it could cost them in the future, he explained, especially when it comes to the showboating that has been happening.

"This game we were a lot better and definitely a lot more disciplined. We still obviously have a little bit of work to do, but I think it's trending in the right direction. The boys did a pretty good job of controlling their emotions and for the most part, they played a good game." 

Warrack explained that as much as they want to give it 100 per cent on every play they also have to be aware of the times need to take a step back and focus so they don't give up the easy play to the opposing team. 

"That is kind of what happened when we gave up the two touchdowns they scored. The offense made some mental mistakes which gave them (opposing team) good field position and they (Spartans) had momentum in the defense. Our defense was rock solid and then I thought the offense moved the ball fairly well."

Some personal accolades that Warrack wanted to mention that helped the team secure that win include Bodey Pettifer who had over 100 yards receiving, Dylan Elliott who threw for over 200 yards passing and a couple of touchdowns, Gage Robison who had about 100 yards of total offense between rushing and receiving, Hunter Corbin who came away with several tackles and Jayden Connett who also had four tackles and played most of the second half. 

Warrack was pleased to see how hard Connett worked during the game and it showed in the amount of time he was out on the field, "It's good to get him in (Connett) and he's really pushing for playing time lately."

The Spartans next game is on Friday in Strathmore at 4 pm when the team from Crescent Heights High School will make the trip from Medicine Hat.

Warrack noted that they played them last year in the tier three provincial quarter-finals,  so Warrack is expecting that they are going to be coming out hard and looking for a little bit of revenge.
