Lad/in the stands: By CAROLYN KERR Another chance at education as we take one last look at football terms. Bomb - what you drop on the opponent that causes an uproar. Handoff - when a player grabs hold of an opposing player and the ref. yells hands off. Snap of the Ball - the noise the football makes when kicked. End Zone - the area of the field where the last play of the game takes place. BLAZER - a bright colored jacket. (Now who's kidding who?) lit at air S Football education time is over for this year. But there is no season on errors and corrections. Last week I stated that the 9th grade BLAZERS were the only undefeated football team in Shelton. Ask any 7th grade football player and he will tell it to you differently. The 7th grade team may be small in number, but they proved they could play winning football. The football program for this age ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ii~~~~B~u~E~u~~~~uu~~uu~~u~~~~u~~~~~~~~~~u~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~llN~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Homecoming at Shelton this week pits Shelton against Tumwater. Of the Tumwater team Coach Jack Stark said, "They could be underrated. Last week they beat O'Day twenty-seven to sixteen and this might give them the confidence to try and knock us over." Another game of interest to Climber fans will be the Centralia-Chehalis game. if the cross-town rivalry is strong enough to pull off a victory for Chehalis, Shelton will tie for the league championship. ~u~|~|[|~|~|~B~KMllu~ll~|~ll|~ll|~|~[~||~|ll|~||~|u~u~ll~|~Bll|~B~l~' Page 10 - Shelton-Mason County Journal - Thursday. November group has been designed to teach the boys basic fundamentals and body conditioning. This years group of youngsters were the first to come out of last years newly organized Junior Football League. This no doubt accounted for the low number of boys turning out. The boys that stuck with it must really have a desire to play the game, and those that decided to quit football must have had enough of the grinding, tedious workouts. Which ever way you look at it, there were less than 20 boys on the 7th grade team. Because of this they were unable to have their traditional one game at the end of the season, where they play each other. Remember you need eleven players for one team. So COACH HARMIA had to seek an opponent from other sources. On the other hand, COACH CRATER had around 30 eighth graders turning out. So he took the third string and a few from the second string to make up the reserve team to play the seventh graders. Their first encounter was held on the afternoon of October 21st. This was a very closely fought battle, each team wanting to come out on top. But the 7th grade finally pulled ahead by scoring a touchdown and winning 8-0. Both teams were anxious for another meeting. The 8th grade wanting revenge and the 7th grade trying to prove that they were still "number one". Most of you saw the second meeting between these two teams during the half-time of the BLAZER-Hood Canal game on October 28th. Again the 7th grade proved their superiority by winning 6-0. This game was only two quarters long and all the 8th graders were positive that they would have come back and won if they could have played two more quarters. Of course, the 7th graders are equally as certain that they would have gone on to win 11, 1971 by a larger margin. Since both teams are through for the season we will never know if it could have turned out differently. Anyway, I stand corrected, the 7th grade BLAZERS are also undefeated, even if they only played two games. MORE BLAZER RAMBLINGS: Last Wednesday found the 8th grade BLAZERS hosting Miller from Aberdeen as they played their last game of the season. The game took place on "Loop Lake" with continual rain falling. The BLAZERS managed to win by a 16-0 score, despite the mud and rain and a bad case of "fumble-itis". Thursday found the 9th grade BLAZERS traveling to Aberdeen for their final game. They finished the season with a perfect record by defeating the Miller team 36-6. By JIM KNEELAND Bouncing off their only loss of the season Shelton's Highclimber football team ran over the Bearcats of Chehalis, 4 t-6, in a game played in freezing cold at Chehalis.
