Hunting Hills Lightning cruise past Foothills Falcons in high school football action

The Hunting Hills Lightning showed their Football Alberta ranking was no fluke on home field.

In their first game of the high school football season, a non-conference matchup against the Foothills Falcons, the Lightning were dominant.

At Great Chief Park, Hunting Hills, the third-ranked Tier II high school football program in the province, cruised to a 33-8 win over the Falcons. Foothills was the eighth-ranked school heading into the matchup.

They also led 24-0 at halftime.

Joel DeMale had two touchdowns and each of Lucas Fuerbringer and Logan Kendze added one. Daniel Bae also punched in a field goal for the home side.

Next week, the Lightning will take on Lacombe at MEGlobal Athletic Park with kickoff set for 4:30 p.m.

In other high school football action, the Lindsay Thurber Raiders fell to the Claresholm Cobras 21-14 on the road. The Lacombe Rams won a nine-man contest Thursday 42-7 over the Innisfail Cyclones.

Sylvan Lake knocked off Frank Maddock of Drayton Valley 99-0.
