8th Grade Football

Pioneer 12, Chief Kanim 7

The Chief Kanim 8th grade football team traveled to Pioneer

on Wednesday, Sept. 29. It was a hard- fought game that saw the home

team score the first touchdown, but the Hawks managed to stop the

extra point. The Chief Kanim gridders then drove down the field, with Curtis

Dorr taking it across the line for the game-tying score. Dorr also ran in the

extra point, giving the Hawks a 7-6 half-time lead. Pioneer scored again in

the third period while the Hawks failed to put any more points on the board,

giving the home team the 12-7 victory.

Dorr finished with 64 yards on 16 carries, with one touchdown and

an extra point. Defensive standouts for the Hawks included Mike Lindor

and Gary Conner, who led the team with eight tackles each; Phil Collins,

seven tackles; and Brad Trombley and Eric McCammon, six tackles.

The Hawks will continue to work on their tackling as they prepare

to host Lochburn next week.
