Middle School Sports Week
8th Grade Football
Chief Kanim thumped by Yelm
The CKMS 8th-grade football team made the long trip south to
take on the undefeated Yelm squad on Wednesday, Oct. 13.
During the first half, the Hawks lost a fumble but their much
improved defense played tough, holding the opposition to six points. In the
second half, the Hawks again moved the ball, but couldn't score until late in
the fourth quarter, when Curtiss Dorr crossed the goal line on a sweep.
The final score was Yelm 26, Chief Kanim 6.
Despite the outcome, the coaches were very pleased with the
improved play. Hank Kennedy went four for five, passing for 53 yards. Mike
Lindor and Dorr combined for 89 yards rushing, while Kris Bostic had two
catches for 49 yards. Leading the team on defense was Lindor with 11 tackles,
Brad Trombley with 10, Eric McCammon with 8 and Gary Conner and
Jimmy Fleming with 7 tackles each.
Eagles down Keithley
The Snoqualmie Middle School 8th-grade Eagles made it two in a
row, with a 34-13 victory at Keithley Wednesday, Oct. 13. The
Eagles jumped on Keithley early, with two touchdowns on their first three
Josh Harris started the scoring, running virtually untouched for a
40-yard touchdown, thanks to excellent blocking by the offensive line. On
the Eagles' next possession, quarterback Alex Smart connected with Harris
on a 35-yard touchdown pass. SMS also received outstanding defensive
performances from Kyle Davis and Nathan Daughtry, who consistently
controlled the line of scrimmage.
