“You have to be able to score… you have to finish,” said Coach Darren Talley about the Goats inability to convert four opportunities inside the Connell 20 yard line. Two of those opportunities were inside the 10 yard line.
Connell, the defending State Champions, took the ball to Chelan on the ground, racking up 281 yards of rushing behind the Eagles Matt Hadley who rushed for 134 yards and three touchdowns to beat Chelan 35-7.
Chelan had 180 yards of passing and only 66 yards on the ground during this game. “We tried to pass even more than the stats show,” said Talley. “It was really open out there, but we couldn’t connect. It was a night where our timing was off.”
Chelan’s only touchdown came on a 14 yard pass from quarterback Michael Amsel, Jr. to Robin Weathersby in the second quarter.
Coach Talley is pleased that the team was able to play a quality team like the Eagles early on. Our front line was one of our bright spots Friday night,” stated Talley. “They stood their ground against a very good Connell team.”
Talley is looking forward to Cle Ellum this coming Friday evening, September 18. “They are a double wing team that runs the ball a lot. They can throw too.”
He doesn’t expect this season to get any easier either. “The league is going to be really tough. You’d better come and compete or you are going to lose,” he said.
