CHS Spartans win big at home
by Phil Ambroziak
The Carpenter High School Spartans football team did not disappoint its fans during the team’s home opener Sept. 21 at Lions Park.
The Meadow Lake team was able to secure its second win in as many weeks when CHS defeated the Kindersley Kobras 25-0.
“The final result was all right,” remarked CHS coach Jeremy Sundeen. “We were hoping to get another win, and some of the younger players who really stepped up and helped make that happen.”
CHS dominated their opponents during the first half of the game, which saw the Spartans take a commanding 14-0 lead in the final play of the half when Chase Paylor threw a 30-yard pass to Kohl Eide, who in turn scored the touchdown.
“In the second half, our defence played very well,” Sundeen continued. “Offensively, we made a few mistakes that hurt our drive, but the defence was there to make the difference.”
One such player was defensive end and Grade 11 student Randy Chaillee.
“Our team played pretty good, especially our defence,” Chaillee said. “We were trying to shut them down, and we did. Our offence also scored some major points.”
The Spartans next game will also be held at Lions Park. This time, CHS is scheduled to host Warman Friday afternoon, Sept. 28.
“That will be a pretty big game in terms of playoff implications,” Sundeen said. “Both teams are heading into this game with a 2-1 record.”
Chaillee agreed, stating Warman is one of the best teams in the Northwest Nine-Man Football League.
“We just hope for more of the same and to be able to put up another W,” he said.
After three weeks of play in Conference Four of the SHSAA six-team league, Delisle is atop the standings as they are undefeated at 2-0. The CHS Spartans share second place in the standings with Warman who have identical records of two wins and one loss apiece. Meadow Lake has accumulated 74 points offensively while they’ve given up 41 on defence. Warman, meanwhile, has scored 118 points, but have given up 104 in their three contests. Down in fourth spot is Martensville at 1-1 while North Battleford’s John Paul II is next at 1-2. Kindersley is in the cellar with three losses.
