4th Grade Week 5
Harrington Pepsi Patriots VS Universal Athletic/Game-one Commanders
Patriots -24 Commanders -16
The Patriots offense was on fire Tuesday night, racking up four touchdowns. The offense was led by quarterback Hunter Snyder who broke free a couple of times for very large runs. He also connected through the air to tight end Dustin Watts. JJ Hardy and Bently Detonancour put up some nice yards on the ground as well. The offensive line led by Landon Wrampe, Marcus Gleason, Cooper Khatani, Lincoln West, Lucas Coyne and Bridger Smyth, all did a great job. The line particularly in the second half provided key blocks to allow for nice gains.
On the defensive end, Bridger Smyth was able to get into the backfield consistently and created havoc for the Commander offense, forcing the plays to the opposite side. Bridger had a fumble recovery and many key tackles. His pretense required double and triple teams at times, which really disrupted the other teams offense. JJ Hardy, Bently Detonancour, Jack Panisko, Hunter Snyder and Lucas Day-Purcell provided the containment in the secondary, reading the plays and getting in on the tackles.
Commanders 16 Patriots 24

Thriftway Colts VS Galcier Bank/CCCS Falcons
Colts 0 Falcons 12
The colts were inside the 10 yard line 3 times but just couldn’t punch it in trailing 6-0 until the final two plays of the game. It was a defensive battle led by Kale “sweetfeet” Alexander who had a forced fumble and two sacks! Benny “the jet” Donaldson operated at QB admirably using his cadence to his advantage. He ran the ball great! Colt “the wrecking ball” Horsley had 3 tackles and played great at tight end. Beaudin “the boss” Murphy played center for his first time, blocked great and even ran the ball for a big chunk! Colt “The Missile” Dinius was once again all over the place on both sides of the ball and filled in great at running back and made some key blocks! Lonnie “the bus” D’arcy Brantley “the wall”Richards, Will “the chief”Davis, and a welcomed back caliber “colt 45” hart from a broken hand suffered in week 2 all played great on the D line making a stop on 4th and inches to give their offense another shot. Jigme “Jiggz” Hanley Able “as he goes” Bolstad Max “the professor” Conlan, Colin “Mickey” Mchugh and Franky “not so” Little all played great at defensive back and safety!
Falcons 12 Colts 0
The Falcons got back on track in week 5 with a hard-fought win over the Colts. The Falcons’ passing game was clicking on all cylinders led by quarterback Cole O’Connor. A great passing game is nothing without a great offensive line. The Falcons got great protection from O-Lineman Charley Cox, Kruz Cotton, Noah Bumgarner, Lincoln Christian, and a rotating tackle (Pacee Klimple and Kolton Knutsen). The Falcons had two receiving touchdowns on the night. The first was Cameron Johnston who got behind the defense for a 15 yard touchdown, and the second was Lucas Benjamin on the last play of the game with an outstanding effort to get open and make the TD catch.
The defense had to make 3 separate red zone stops to keep the Colts out of the end zone. Vincent Savino and Tevin Berger we’re instrumental to these stops both making critical plays at critical times from the linebacker position. The secondary, led by cornerbacks Coy Carpenter, Gavin Schonsberg, and safety Maverick White, gave no room to throw, allowing 0 passing yards on the night.
5th Grade Week 5
Buffalo Wild Wings Steelers VS Steele’s/Bank of Butte Chiefs
Chiefs 24- Steelers 8
The Steelers took the ball first and march almost the whole distance of the field with a 12 play scoring drive. The score came from a five yards run by Logan Bush #6. Capped off by a booming kick by Tayten Lester #13 to put the Steelers up 8. That would be the only time we found the end zone as we would move the ball up field very well just to find the Chiefs defense stiffening up. We had outstanding play all game from me boys on the O line. Remington Corn #16, Gage Taylor #14, Liam Fouts #17, Keygan Christensen #12, Charlie Gillespie #7, Tayten Lester #13, and Levi Martineau #10. This group has improved every day and played their best game so far.
Defensively, we played really well. Besides the few really big plays by the Chiefs backfield, we definitely made them earn this one. Along with Kaylor Smith #5 protecting the sideline, Kohlter Pennell #11 and Parker Klimple #2 were flying around making great tackles, and Logan Bush made a big strip/recover play. This game was definitely closer than the final score.
The Chiefs beat the Steelers 24-8 on Thursday night. Players on the o-line deserve a lot of credit for creating a successful running game. Offensive Line players such as Tim Shumway, Rody Johnson, Evan Bobermin, Boston Lakkala, Lane Batterman, Kayden Barry, Hayden Barry, and Gaige Baker did an amazing job blocking. All three Running backs Clay Christiaens, Crew O’Connor, and Blake Connors scored rushing touchdowns. Wide receiver Dylan Lambson caught a 15yard touchdown pass from QB Blake Connors.
The Chiefs defense was lead by Boston Lakkala with multiple tackles for a loss. Crew O’Connor and Clay Christiaens both had multiple tackles as well.
Newland and Company Bears VS First Citizen’s Cowboys
Bears 12-Cowboys 7
She was a good one on Tuesday!
Brendon Rohan played like a mad man at center, Matthew Rawson played great on defense, Orlin Southwick was taking no prisoner at safety, Kolton Johnson again catching passes and Will Hoar great blocking and tackling.
The Bears came out in week five ready to bounce back from last weeks performance. The game was the epitome of a defensive struggle! Oliver Mayne punched the ball in to end one for the first score of the game for the Bears, but it didn’t take long for the cowboys to answer back. With some clever play calling of their own the cowboys took the lead 7-6 at the half. Some costly fumbles by the Bears offense kept the Bears defense on the field most of the second half. Good thing for the Bears is that their defense seems to be the real deal, as they held the cowboys scoreless in the second half. The defense absolutely stepped up in a crucial moment when strong safety Bentley Blando returned an interception the length of the field to clench the game in the late moments for the Bears. The Bears came together and displayed great resolve in this TEAM win taking the game 12-7 Go Bears 🐻
