Football fans in Drumheller have a treat in store this weekend: a double header at DVSS Field.

The Tim Horton's Peewee Terrapins play the Olds Huskies starting at 11:00 a.m. The Terrapins are coming off a 12-2 loss to Red Deer last weekend.

At 1:30 p.m. the Bantam Titans take the field to face the Strathmore Badgers. Drumheller is recovering from a 48-0 loss last Saturday in Rocky Mountain House.

"We started off okay and the boys just kind of fell apart," explained coach Lachie McFadden. "We watched some game film the other night and we know where we're making our mistakes and we're going to try to fix them for this week's game."

McFadden and co-coach Ryan Hatch have a number of newcomers on the Bantams this year and some of their best players have moved up to the Senior Titans.

"I think five kids never played football before," noted McFadden. "They're a little raw and learning the game and I'm excited for them, but we'll just work with them and try to get the kinks out this week."

"Every week is a learning week," he added. "We'll hopefully do well this weekend and we'll work on to the next weekend."
