Rimbey Spartans high school football team is starting off the season on a high note with two resounding wins already under their belt.

In the first game of the season, the Spartans, ranked number 1 in the province in six-man football, trounced Buck Mountain 75-1. On Sept. 18 they travelled to Breton, defeating them 75-52.

Coach Bill Bramfield is pleased with the wins and the number 1 ranking and is hopeful the Spartans will enjoy a successful season.

“The expectations are high. We have 12 returning players and our new players are strong. Plus, we have some unfinished business from last year.”

The Spartans finished second in provincials last season, losing the gold medal game to Edmonton Mill Woods.

This year the Spartans will play in the central division of the 16-team league, competing against teams from Breton, Buck Mountain and LY Cairns from Edmonton.

The next home game is Oct. 18 against Breton.
