Chelan football shuts down Tonasket
Chelan Goats football finished the regular season last Friday with a 48-7 win against the Tonasket Tigers.
"We executed well on offense and we adjusted well on defense and that's where we should be right now," Chelan coach Travis Domser said.
Chelan came out and scored 14 points in the first quarter. The Goats added another 14 points in the second quarter and only gave up a touchdown to the Tigers in the first half, giving Chelan a 28-7 lead at the half.
The second half was all Chelan, scoring 20 points and holding Tonasket scoreless to cruise to victory.
The leading rusher for the Goats was Mason McClellan, carrying the ball 10 times for 63 yards. Teammate Kai Clausen had five carries for 36 yards and a touchdown and added two catches for 75 yards and a touchdown. Chelan's Tanner Hendricks did a little bit of everything last Friday, recording four carries for 40 yards, catching three passes for 65 yards and two touchdowns and completing five passes for 102 yards and a touchdown.
On defense, Asa Schwartz led the way with nine total tackles, six of those for a loss. Schwartz also forced a fumble that was recovered by Matt Barnes.
The Goats end the season with a five game winning streak after starting out the season 1-3. Chelan ends the season with a 6-3 record, including a 5-2 league record. The record places them third in the CTL.
This Friday, the Goats will travel to Chattaroy for the crossover game against the Riverside Rams. The Rams are the No. 2 seed from the Northeast 1A league with a 5-1 league record and a 7-2 record overall. The winner of the game will earn a berth into the state tournament while the loser of the game will end its season.
"We have treated the last two weeks as playoff games and our kids have responded," Domser said. "We don't have a lot of players who have played in a football game like this one coming up so we need to prepare hard and leave everything there this week. We threw the ball well, ran the ball well, played good special teams, and played tough on defense, having that said we need to get back to work and get better if we want to beat a team like Riverside."
