Though the score looks one-sided, the Cubs did show some improvements on team and situational play, espe- cially during the first half. Kim- ball really buckled down after the extremely confident Irish marched down the field on their first drive with a touchdown. For the rest of the half, Maple Lake added only a field goal to get their 10 - 0 half- time lead. Kimball had a prime opportu- nity to score in the closing min- utes of the first half, but when faced with a third and short inside the 7 yard line, the Cubs received a penalty for moving too early. The Cubs tried a hard count but the Irish didn't bite. So on the next play, Kimball fell short of the first- down yardage needed. This was the momentum change of the game and a true lesson learned for the young Cubs. Paul Sundin, 7th-Grade Coach Seventh-grade Cubs 34-0 shutout of the EV/W Eagles It was a hot and humid Sep- tember evening (Sept. 17) when the seventh-grade Cubs of Kim- ball started off their football sea- son at home against the Eagles of Eden Valley/Watkins. Players were nervous, parents were worried, and the coach was concerned; and more importantly, palms were sweaty when the Eagles started with the ball on their own 40-yard line and on the first play fumbled the ball. A pack of Cubs recovered the fumble and suddenly the ner- vousness, worries, and concerns began to subside. The Cubs ini- tially had a hard time moving the ball, then on 3rd down, the Cubs Coming out of half-time, the Irish scored three touchdowns in the third quarter. A Cub turn- over on special teams sparked the touchdown frenzy by Maple Lake. Overall the team improved on their play from Pierz. The Cubs showed good discipline with few penalties and fewer mistakes on assignments than the previous week. The defense played well enough to keep Kimball in the game and earn a +2 in the turn- over ratio battle. Offensively the Cubs displayed some good things, however too many dropped passes and some timely assignment mis- cues cut drives short. This week is homecoming and Holdingford is coming to town. As long as the Cubs have a good week of practice, stay focused and don't let homecoming festivities deviate from the plan, we are planning on a good game. The Cubs are now 1-2 overall and 0-2 in conference play. busted loose for a big gain. The Cubs marched down the field, and punched it in for a TD. The Cubs used the momentum to frustrate the Eagles. The Cubs Defense held the Eagles scoreless on the day by eliminating the big play and meet- ing at the ball. The Eagles longest play from scrimmage was a cou- ple of 12-yard gains. On offense, the Cubs took advantage of their superior speed and had five plays of 20 yards or more. Three differ- ent Cubs players got into the end zone on this day, with the help of good blocking and great play exe- cution. On opening day, the sev- enth-grade Cubs rolled to victory with a 34-0 shutout of the Eagles. Cross Country .... Terry Nelson, Assistant Coach boys' race.
