JV 32-Belmont 20
Hi-lite of the week: JV study hall!! Twenty-six players attended study-hall on Thursday beginning at 3:06 and with the last player leaving shortly after 5 PM. Four school staff members volunteered their help during this period with specialties represented from the Math, Science, English, Social Studies and Computer Science departments! Wow!! Those going the extra-mile were rewarded with some great tasting pizza at the end of the session! How we study and how we play are two peas in a pod; well done JV Dawgs!!!
After a slow start at this Monday's practice, our JV worked hard to improve during subsequent sessions. Friday's game at Belmont went a long ways towards telling us where we are at. Defensively, we played physical and sharp producing a score en route. Pride and Joy special teams units were outstanding and produced a touchdown. Offensively, our recivers showed much improvement. We will be going to work on offensive line and quarterback play come Monday! Everything is fixable with a "lets get better" attitude.
Varsity 58- Belmont 0
We did some growing in practice this week and were ready to play right out of the gates. Our team defense gave a savage account of themselves producing turnovers and many negative yardage plays for the opposing offense. Offensively, we started on a very short field all day long and were very efficient in terms of getting the ball across the goal-line with six different ball carriers contributing to the final score. The offensive line played superb and gashed big holes in the opposing unit. Pride and Joy special teams units had a monster day and was an inspiration/joy to behold. In a word, Devastation!
Game video shows areas requiring improvement, but this does not lessen the fact that we improved this week as individuals and more importantly, as a team.
All, enjoy the win and as of 0001 hrs. Sat. 18th, it is Ray Kocher Classic Game Week vs Nanaimo District. Time to go to work and get better!!
