8th Grade Football
Hawks still looking
The Chief Kanim 8th grade football team hosted a scrappy
Lochburn Middle School squad on Wednesday, Oct. 6.
The Hawks had trouble moving the ball in the first half of the
game and found themselves down by19-0 at halftime. In the second half,
Chief Kanim's defense shut down Lochburn, but unfortunately the offense
couldn't move the ball. The final score remained 19-0, and the Hawks are
still looking for their first victory.
Mike Lindor played extremely well, blocking a punt and leading
the team with eight tackles, while Alex VanOveren had a fumble
recovery with two tackles. Other leading tacklers were Gary Conner with six,
Trevor Sleeman and Eric McCammon with five each, and Brad Trombley,
Kris Bostic and Zach Kramer with four each. Phil Collins had some great
long snaps and Bostic got off some excellent punts.
Eagles chuck Woodbrook
The 8th grade Eagles have landed! In the true tradition of "no guts,
no glory," the SMS football team played with pride and emotion, beating
the Wildcats from Woodbrook, Tacoma, 18-13.
An Alex Smart pass to Josh Harris resulted in the game winning
touchdown, with just 43 ticks left on the clock. Harris and Smart also
crossed the goal line for two other touchdowns.
With the defensive front of Kyle Davis, Brett Schneider, Justin
Wright and Nathan Goldsmith shutting down the middle, and Curt Davis, Eric
Meuli and Smart containing the outside, the Eagles shut out the Wildcats in
the second half. It was a great team win.
The 8th grade Wildcats are coached by Brad Hilliard and
