Dear Parents and Families of Players;
My name is Darcy Argue. I am one of the Assistant coaches this year for Our Mustang Football team.
Our Mustang Football Players will be hosting The Canmore Football Team at Highwood High school October 5th at 5:00pm. This Game will be The Mustang Football teams “Dan Bednash Memorial Football Game”. Dan was a member of the Senator Riley Football Team in the early 90’s. Dan was a great player, team mate, friend and was truly a terrific example to learn from in all aspects both on and off the field. He was tragically taken a few years back in a car accident.
We will be honoring him and his family at this game by having his Mother and Brother (who also played for the Mustangs) to perform a Ceremonial Kickoff. We have also invited The Mustangs football Alumni to be present for this game.
Our plan is to have a potluck dinner for The Mustangs Players PAST and PRESENT as well as their families. We will also be conducting a silent auction; all proceeds from the auction will go directly to the Mustangs Football Organization.
What we are asking is for your help in organizing and supplying the meal for this potluck dinner at approximately 7:00 pm after the game. We are guesstimating the meal will require feeding 150 guests give or take. If you feel that you can help make this venture a success, please contact me directly through my personal email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Warm Wishes and Thanks in Advance,
Assistant Coach Mustangs Football

On Friday September 6th the Highwood Mustangs came from behind to defeat the Pincher Creek Mustangs 24-13.
The Mustangs from Pincher Creek scored early to place the Highwood Mustangs into a late first half deficit of 13 -0. Then with 8:29 left in the second quarter my co-pilot intervened, as lighting, thunder, and rain delayed the game for thirty minutes. In the break I told the boys that we were going to shorten the bench, and load up the defence to stop their running game. These young men responded very well, as Coach Bennington would call a masterful game on offence. We would score three touchdowns in those 8 minutes and 29 seconds to an 18-13 lead into the second half.
In the third quarter the Mustangs would continue their onslaught, scoring off the kick-off return as Dane Schott would score. It was now 24-13; the Mustangs from High River were now in control of the game the “Big M” was on their side.
I would like to say that the leadership from our Grade 12’s Roman Lanoutte, Jesse Woodward, Devlin Gannon, (two T.D.’s), Mike Schaefer (1 T.D.) Quentin Leroux, A.J. Flammand, and Quade Kormos were exemplary. Not to leave out grade 11’s Kris Gimbett, Ryan Bianchini, Wes Wakeford and Dane Schott (Salt and Pepper) these young men played their hearts out, and carried the touch for the Mustangs. Also thanks to my coaches: Dave, Rob, Jason, Travis, Darcy, Dwayne, and Steve Cameron.
Well done to all!
This game is dedicated to all of the heroes of High River!
