The 3-4 grade team I’m head coaching this year went down to Kansas State University’s Bill Snyder Stadium to play an out of league contest over Labor Day. We won 26-6 over a defending league champion to move to 3-0 for the season. They were an all 4th grade team, we are a combined 3rd and 4th grade team.
The game was a little sloppy for my taste. While we only had 2 penalties, we turned the ball over for the very first time this season. We also squandered an opportunity to blow the game wide open by bobbling a snap on 4th and 1 at the opponent’s 10 yard line.
Defensively we tackled well, only missing 2 tackles. Our first team defense only gave up 2 first downs and our backups were scored on on the last play of the game.
