Chelan QB Zane Sandum connected with Brett Linehan for 127 yards and six touchdowns against the LibertyBellMountain Lions last Friday night
Chelan Goats back on track
By Richard Uhlhorn
Coach Darren Talley reported on Monday that the game against Liberty Bell was a great game to get back on track after Chelan’s loss to Cascade the week before. “We came out and executed very consistently on all fronts,” stated Talley. “A lot of kids got to carry the ball and the offensive line of scrimmage did an outstanding job.”
One of the main keys to the game was Zane Sandum’s work as quarterback. He connected with receiver Brett Linehan on 6 of 12 attempts for 127 yards and six touchdowns against the Mountain Lions.
Derrick Talley scored three touchdowns and was fun to watch, particularly when he made the turn downfield. Talley is quick and fast. He had 248 yards of rushing on 22 carries.
Luke Laughlin also had a great night for the Goats, blocking and running to the whistle.
The Goats defensively line held Liberty Bel to a negative 33 yards of rushing. “Credit for this defensive effort goes to Cody Olsen, Steven Swinford, Doug Ramsey, Mat Engstrom, Matt Pittsinger and Will Nielsen on the front line and Davey Anderson, Danny Zavala, Gage Schmidt and Zane Sandum in the linebacker positions.
After the game, the Goats began working on this coming Friday night’s contest against the respected Cashmere Bulldogs who ran their spread option to 70-13 perfection against Omak. “They bring you up to play the run over and over and then they throw the long pass to some of the best receivers in our league,” said Coach Talley. “It is the type of game that will bring the best out of everyone. We look forward to hosting them, and, of course, a challenging game.”
