    Emily Brown is an 17 year old, grade 12 student at William E. Hay Secondary School in Stettler.  The Big Valley, AB resident is a competitive Rugby athlete.

    Before she discovered rugby, Emily was a multi-sport athlete (all school sports plus hockey and fastball).  In Grade 11, Emily led the WE Hay Wildcats to a Provincial Championship in Basketball.  In the spring of Grade 11 Emily started her Rugby journey with the Stettler Wildcats.  It was love at first sight!  While just starting out as a player, Emily has committed herself to developing the sport in the Stettler area by helping to deliver school and community clinics.  Emily joined the Titans Rugby Club in Red Deer last summer and was part of the Titans incredible run of success. 

    2018 started on an incredible note as Emily was selected to Captain the Red Deer/Central Alberta Rugby 7’s team.  They captured their first tournament championship the same month.

    This spring, Emily was chosen to represent Alberta as part of Rugby Alberta’s 7’s team that competed at Rugby Canada’s 7’s Nationals in Vancouver.  They brought home the Silver medal.  Emily will continue to compete for Titans and Alberta during the coming summer.

    An excellent student/athlete, Emily excels on the pitch and in the classroom where she is an Honors student. Emily will attend the University of Alberta this fall.  She’ll major in Kinesiology and will try to crack the Pandas Rugby roster.

    Emily’s strong work ethic, her undeniable athletic abilities and her training experiences with ASDC-Central will ensure that Emily continues to grow, develop and succeed in her Rugby career!

    The Red Deer Senior Rustlers ready to play in front of home crowd for the first time on Saturday night.

    With their first ever North Central Hockey League game, and win, under their belts, the Red Deer Senior Rustlers are set for their home debut on Saturday night.

    After edging the Devon Barons 5-4 on the road last Saturday, the Barons come to Penhold Saturday night for a rematch, the first time the Rustlers will skate in front of a home crowd.

    “A lot of work has gone into this moment, and it’s going to be really special for everyone involved,” said General Manager Ted Emmett. “Our board members, players, families, friends and sponsors have all invested a lot into this team, and what we’ve already accomplished is no small feat. For the team to finally hit the ice in front of a home crowd is just the cherry on top of what’s already been an incredible experience for all of us.”

    Doors open at 7pm at the Penhold Multiplex, with puck drop set for 7:45, following a short ceremony at 7:30. The first 100 fans in attendance will receive a free Rustlers cowbell.

  • RED DEER SENIOR RUSTLERS WIN 5-4 IN NCHL DEBUT

    The Red Deer Senior Rustlers erase a 3-0 defecit to defeat the Devon Barons 5-4 in inagural North Central Hockey League game.

    Despite falling behind 3-0 early, the Red Deer Senior Rustlers bounced back to defeat the Barons 5-4 in Devon in the team’s North Central Hockey League debut.

    After getting two goals back and surrendering another to the Barons, the Rustlers tied the game 4-4 near the end of the second period, with Dustin Moore scoring the game-winner in the opening minutes of the third, his second goal of the game.

    “The Barons played a great game, they came out hard and played a more physical game than maybe most of us were expecting,” said Moore. “We came out a little flat in the first period, but we stuck with it, figured it out, and were able to pull out a win in a memorable first game.”

    Moore also had an assist for a three-point effort, and was named the game’s first star. Brennen Francon, Mike Dempster and Dylan Winnicky were the other Rustlers goal scorers. Goaltender Aaron Dyck earned the win for the Rustlers.

    The Rustlers now look forward to four straight home games, including a rematch with the Barons on October 13, the team’s home-opener. Doors open at 7pm at the Penhold Multiplex, with puck drop set for 7:45, following a short ceremony at 7:30.

    Tickets for the game are $10 at the door, children under 12 are free. Season tickets are also available as well for $65 each, which includes all eight Rustlers home games.
