Chelan Head Coach Darren Talley Writes His
Own Story of the Goats Win over Royal
Our Chelan Football team is
making history with it's 40 - 25 win over Royal City.
For the second year in a row we've reached the playoffs, and
only the third time in school history.
This is the first time a
Chelan football team has ever won a first round playoff game in school history,
which also means this is the first time in school history our football team has
reached the quarter finals.
Being one of eight football teams left
in the State 1A is just awesome for our players and fans. The crowd we had
and the cheering will also go down as one of the largest in recent memory and
the kids just ate it up.
All the Chelan Goats on the field would
like to say thank you for making history with us, and please come and support us
We will meet Omak who also reached the quarter finals
with their win over Zillah.
The next game for the Chelan High
Football team has been confirmed: Chelan vs. Omak on Saturday, November

The Apple Bowl

Swimming Pool and Recreation Park Baseball Field.

Let the history
continue, because our players are enjoying each other and this remarkable season
so much that no one wants it to ever end.
Our offense got on the
board with 1:12 left in the first quarter on a 17 yard Michael Amsel Jr pass to
The extra point try was good by Jose Ramirez and at
the end of the first period it was 7 - 0 Chelan. Early in the second
quarter at the 10:12 mark Chelan scored again on a 23 yard pass from Michael
Amsel Jr to Robin Weathersby.
Jose Ramirez kick was good and the
score was 14 - 0 Chelan. With 4:30 left in the second quarter Chelan's
Cole Schwartz scored again on a 3 yard run. Kick failed. Chelan 20 -
Our only disappointing part of the game was the 2:40 seconds of
the second quarter while we should have gone into the locker room at halftime up
20 - 0 we let complacency into the game and with 3 Chelan fumbles and 3 quick
scores by Royal on short field possessions the score changed from 20 - 0 to 20 -
18 in the last two minutes.
I was not happy at halftime and
my motivational talk was short and to the point. Let's just say the second
half was a much better effort. Royal received the second half kickoff
and with 7:53 left in the third quarter scored on a Marc Albertson to Will
Christensen 4 yard pass. Shaq Ledezma kick was good putting Royal 25 - 20
ahead for the first time in the game.
Chelan answered right back
39 seconds later with a Michael Amsel Jr pass to Tyler James 34 yards to pay
Chelan went for two, but failed putting the Goats ahead 26 -
25. Chelan scored once more with time expiring on the 3rd quarter clock,
with a 37 yard pass from Michael Amsel Jr to Robin Weathersby. Jose
Ramirez kick was good, and at the end of 3 quarters the score stood at Chelan 33
- Royal 25.
The battle continued throughout the fourth quarter
with Chelan finally pulling away with 3:29 left on the clock. Michael
Amsel Jr threw a 11 yard strike to Robin Weathersby and with Jose Ramirez kick
good the final score of the game ended Chelan 40 - Royal 25.
gave such a gallant effort to the finish, and their kids and coaches like the
Cashmere team from the week before wished our team continued success.
Cashmere and Royal are the last two teams to win the State Championship
in 1A football and they act like champions win or lose.
It was a
track meet all night long for both defenses each doing their best to control
very potent offensive efforts.
Michael Amsel Jr led Chelan's
effort with 11 tackles. Adam Hendricks, Aaron McQuaid, Matt Peterson each
had 9, with Amsel and Peterson adding an interception to each of their great
performances, and Peterson and McQuaid each forcing a fumble.
Schwartz had 8 tackles and one ball knock down. Matt Pittsinger had 7
tackles. Robin Weathersby had 6 tackles and 2 interceptions not
wanting to be left out of the DB action.
Freshman Alex Cortez had
4 tackles, with Doug Ramsey and Quin Courtney each ending the night with 3
tackles a piece. Jose Ramirez added one tackle to his season
The execution wasn't pretty at times for either team, but
the efforts were outstanding. It was truly a playoff quality hitting
night, and the interception by Chelan players at crucial times proved to be the
Our special teams kicking was outstanding with Jose
Ramirez on extra point try, and Michael Amsel Jr's punting. Our coverage
down field was not quite as sharp as the Cashmere playoff qualifier game, but
there were no long break downs and we were happy about the
We are all very happy to go to our second home the locker
room at the stadium. We get to continue to enjoy each other on this team
that has become like a family. We live to play another
