Amidst all the activity and excitement of Lacombe Culture and Harvest Festival this past weekend, Lacombe & District Minor Football held its Football Day last weekend at ME Global field.

The day started off with the Lacombe Atom Chargers Jamboree in the morning. Eight teams (four from Red Deer, two from Sylvan Lake and two from Lacombe) took part in the Jamboree.

Lacombe’s Pee Wee team, Lacombe Explosion, was next to take the field in a match against the Stettler Panthers. The Explosion won the game 42-28.

Finally, it was time for the Lacombe Bantam Raiders game against the Stettler Cougars. Emerging victorious from a hard-fought battle on the gridiron, the Raiders won the game 18-12.

Football Day was also the scene for an announcement from the Lacombe Athletic Park Association (LAPA), who recognized Richardson Pioneer, Gord Bamford Foundation and the Rotary Club of Lacombe for their contributions to kickstart the fundraising drive for the fi nal stage of construction at ME Global Field, an eight-lane rubberized running track.
