Chelan Goats 14 - Cle Elum 49
Chelan started the opening drive of the game ready to play football running and passing the ball to pay dirt. Cle Elum answered right back and the game was on. Chelan made too many turnovers to put themselves in a positive situation and Cle Elum capitalized on those mistakes taking a lead that they never relinquished defeating Chelan 49 - 14. We did not play well as a team, and we did not respond to an excited Cle Elum team. We will work to correct what needs to be corrected this week as we head to Seattle this next weekend to take on 2010 2A playoff quarter final foe Foster High School in Tukwila. One real nice positive was seeing young Tanner Hendricks come in at QB allowing Matt Robinson to take his starting role at Wide Receiver, which allowed Matt to immediately take charge on a 40 yard reception from Tanner for six. On the defensive side a real bright spot was the play of sophomore Konnar Stevens. The kicking game became very solid this week with open tryouts and a surprise as Jared Anderson shined as a deep kicker and was perfect two for two on PAT's in the game. In this awesome game called football, as in life, there are ups, and there are downs. We will continue to work as hard as possible in either, because if we don't we are almost guaranteed to have more of the later.
