As with Estevan's other minor football teams, consistency is one of the biggest issues the Century 21 Chargers face, and that was on full display Saturday in Regina.
The peewee Chargers were blanked 40-0 by the Regina Razorbacks, one week after picking up their first win of the season, a 12-0 victory over Grenfell.
Chargers head coach Steve McLellan said the only thing his team can do is forget about it and prepare for the next game.
"That's part of minor football I guess, you have your ups and downs. The players learn from it, the coaches learn from it and we'll get back at it for this week."
The Chargers (1-4) trailed 28-0 at the half after getting off to a poor start.
"I kind of felt we weren't able to hit the gear that we needed to hit, get up to that level. Once we did, it was too late," said McLellan.
"We started slow and we kinda got down on ourselves a little bit."
McLellan added that the team needs to go harder in practice to give themselves a shot at staying competitive in games.
"I think overall, we just didn't practise as hard as we needed to this week and we let complacency set in a little bit. But I give full props to Regina, they're a good team."
The Chargers were able to get a bit of offence going, but not enough to make a dent.
McLellan said quarterback Cameron Rioux had a strong game, but not enough others did.
"We had a few sustained drives, one where we actually scored but it was called back," he explained.
"My feelings are that if we played that again, we would possibly see a different outcome."
The Chargers' next action is on Saturday when they host the Regina Griffins. Kick-off time is 12:45 p.m. at Estevan Comprehensive School.
