Chelan Goats into the semi’s… Connell next Saturday
By Richard Uhlhorn
Chelan proved that they were as good as anyone in the 1A ranks on Saturday as they beat the Royal Knights 27-17 to win a trip to the Semi-Finals next weekend at Moses Lake against the Connell Eagles.
Royal was in the lead at the end of the first half and had chosen to receive the football at the start of the third quarter. It was up to Chelan to put a stop to Royal’s offense… which is exactly what they did.
In the first half, Royal chalked up 286 yards against the Goats, but were only able to gain 76 total yards in the second half.
After the game, Coach Darren Talley told his team, “The reason we are in this is not our offense… but out defense.”
