Goats open league season with
48-9 win over Lake Roosevelt
By Richard Uhlhorn
The Chelan Goats took its football game to Lake Roosevelt last Friday and came home with a huge 48-9 win over the Raiders. “We are learning to play at a high level for four guarters of football,” reported Coach Darren Talley. “Our younger players are being taught by some great older players the right way to attack football and life.”
Talley also reported that Lake Roosevelt has some great athletes who competed with Chelan well in the first half. “I wish them success for the rest of the year,” he stated.
Talley pointed to the team’s offensive line as a major reason the Goats did so well against the Raiders. “The offensive line is starting to assert themselves.” The line is led by Cody Olsen and complemented by junior Will Nielsen. “Zane, Derrick and Brett are benefiting from the offensive lines work.”
“We are also becoming a team that likes to hit and pursue the ball,” remarked Talley. Danny Zavala, Davey Anderson, Derrick Talley, Cody Olsen and sophomore Adam Hendricks are hitting hard on defense. Hendricks has earned his way onto the starting kickoff team because of his aggressive defensive play.
The team travels to Cascade High School to play the Kodiaks this coming Friday and then on the 28th of September, Chelan hosts Cashmere in the “Battle for the Shoe”.
