Game Day Schedule
WHITE BEARS 26 – RAMS 0
The Bears worked hard all week in practice preparing for their first playoff test against the Rams. The Bears came
out strong in their opening drive scoring the first touch down of the game on Braeden Neal’s six yard run, followed
by Jaxon Tripp’s amazing “layin down on the job” extra point catch. On the Bears next possession Mitchell
Fettig scampered 66 yards around end.
The big story of the day however was the Bears smothering team defense that allowed only two first downs on the day and
earned the teams first shut out of the season. Josh Allen had a great interception and Casey Bassett had an exceptional
day on special teams with a fumble recovery and a couple of tackles.
Next, round two of the playoffs that will pit the White and Blue Bears in a cross the practice field battle for a birth
in the Major JV Championship game.
Week 3 - Game Day September 23, 2006
Major JV White Bears blow through the Black Tornados
On a beautiful sunny day in Yelm, nothing shined brighter than the Major JV White Bears.
The Bears took advantage of special teams, Yelm miscues and a stingy defense on way to a 33-7 victory.
On the opening kickoff, the Bears began the assault on the Black Tornadoes. As the
kick bounced around on the grass, Michell Fettig finally gained control. Seemingly pinned in be several Yelm defenders, Fettig
found a seam, broke into the open and rambled 72 yards to pay dirt. Caden Waggoner ran it in for the conversion.
The Bears recovered a Yelm fumble on the kickoff and took only three plays to score
on a Fettig to Jaxon Tripp halfback pass. The conversion put the score at 14-0. Another Yelm fumble followed by a Derek Buehler
32 yard touchdown and a Tripp to Josh Allen conversion pushed the score to 21-0 with 2:10 left in the first quarter.
A second quarter Yelm touchdown made it 21-7 for just minutes. Fettig again received
the kickoff, burst into the middle, went up the left sideline for a 62 yard return for 6. The Bears closed out the scoring
in the third quarter on a screen pass to Caden Waggoner. Waggoner caught the pass, split two key blocks and rambled 25 yards
for the touchdown.
All day, the Bears’ swarming defense showed great tenacity shutting down Yelm’s
toss sweep, getting two fumbles and three stops on fourth and short. While the Bear’s used both big plays and ball control
(62 offensive plays), Yelm’s offense could only manage a little over 100 yards.
The coaches sited great overall team effort and consistency for the win. The Bears
are now 3-0 going into the bye week. Their next game is on Saturday, October 7th vs. the Cougar Gold at 12:00.
Week 2 - September 16, 2006
Bears Major JV 32,
Tumwater White Major JV 6
Another win for the Oly Bears
Major JV squad against a scrappy Tumwater team leaves the bears undefeated through 2 weeks of regular season. The bears have
really come together as a team and the score shows it.
On the defensive end of the pig skin, they limited Tumwater to very few first downs.
Ryan Tamayo had a great tackle on fourth down to force Tumwater into one of many turnovers. Hats off to Ryan and the defense
for their hard work and drive.
Our special teams were awesome with special kudos going to kicker, Alex Buck, who made
two beautiful on-side kicks which the special team recovered with ease. Way to go Alex and special teams.
Our offensive line has really improved. They work together beautifully for great protection
of the quarterbacks. Great work guys!!! As a result, the bears scored 5 touchdowns consisting of some great long runs and
good passes. We, also, had a nice 2-point conversion.
As you can see, the major JV bears are coming on strong and should be a contender come
play off time if they keep it up.
Mich Fettig - 3 TD’s; Max Fortier to Jax Tripp - 1TD; Caden Waggoner –
Week 1- September
White Bears come out strong!
The JV White Bears battles for four quarters and
came away with a 20 - 7 opening day win over a tough Red Wolves team. Although the Bears never trailed, the game was close
until the final minutes. The Bears won the coin toss and drove their opening possession inside the Wolves’ red zone,
but stalled when the offense turned the ball over on a fumble. Although the offense
turned the ball over a number of times, they moved the ball well all day long and managed to score three touchdowns. The entire
offense played well.
Also impressive, was the
strong showing by the Bear’s defense. The defense was stout all day and didn’t allow the opponent’s running
game to get on track. The Wolves tried unsuccessfully to run up the middle with a bruising back for most of the first half,
but the stout interior defense of the Bears held them to minor gains. In the second half, the Wolves tried to change it up
and run outside the tackles, but aside from one big play, they were kept in check. The Bear’s secondary and ends contained
the running game, forced a number of turnovers, and limited the Wolves to only a few total first downs on the day.
The Bears came out of the
game with no significant injuries. They will have off days on Sunday and Monday and then hit the practice field again on Tuesday
in preparation for another tough opponent this weekend. – Coach Bassett
