Until their loss against Rocky on Tuesday night, they were undefeated in their confer- ence wins with only one left to go. The team also finished strong last year with the best record of all JV teams in conference wins. "We have a pretty good group coming up from JV," commented varsity coach Stormy Jameson, who un- doubtedly is looking for- ward to working with some of the girls next year. "They are looking bright and hope- fully I'll be able to carry that tradition to the varsity level." Bonnie Rodriguez has led in kills all season. Ju- nior Mesa Matthews is con- sistently at the top with her kills. Cheyanne Dickey, Mercedes Haney and Kas- si Renner all proved to be good hitters all season. Shyann Wilske has been doing a fine job as sole setter for the team and has spent time on the courts with the varsity team, as well. Dominique Allred is the teams libero. The team has one con- ference game left in their season, Friday at Riverside followed by a non-confer- ence game at Shoshoni be- fore their season ends. They are coached by Dana Chris- tiansen.

BY DAVID PECK The Rocky Mountain Middle School football team turned a one-touchdown half- time lead into a 20-0 victory with a strong second-half performance Saturday in Bur- lington. Coach Rod Winland said the Grizzlies scored five minutes into the second quarter on a five-yard quarterback sneak by Cole Simmons to lead 8-0 after the conversion from Simmons to Ben Estes was good. "We had a great surge by Zac (Zier) and Cordell (McFarlane), and Cole went into the end zone untouched," Winland said. "That touchdown capped a long drive for us. It was a great catch by Ben (on the PAT). It looked as though Cole overthrew Ben, but Ben reached out with one hand and reeled it in." Travis Banks set up Rocky's next touch- down with an interception and 20-yard re- turn, Winland said. Simmons hit Estes from 30 yards out for the score after Estes got wide open on a play action pass. The PAT failed, and Rocky led 14-0 after th~ "Travis Banks and Cole Wambeke did a great job selling out on that play," the coach said. Rocky's final touchdown came in the fourth quarter when strong running by Wambeke and Jared May set up a quarter- back sneak by Simmons. The PAT failed, "Our offensive line of Cordell McFar- lane, Zac Zier, Wes Homewood, Seth Fuller and Payton Thomas controlled the line of scrimmage," Winland said. "They have re- ally improved through the season." There was no scoring in the seventh- grade game. Winland said the Grizz con- trolled the game on the ground, but the drives stalled in the end. The Grizz are scheduled to conclude the season today (Thursday) at 4:30 p.m. when they host Powell. Editor's note: The Chronicle has not received information on Lovell Middle School football action for several weeks, de- spite requests. Continued from page 7 trol of the game in the second half, intercepting Frazier twice in the third quarter (Hinckley and Mark Grant) and scoring a touch- down to lead 21-6. Greybull appeared to have the Bull- dogs stopped, but on fourth and 18 at the Greybull 28 the Bulldogs picked up the Greybull blitz and Hult- gren found Savage slicing over the middle. The big ju- nior dove for the end zone and the score. "That one stung for Greybull," Hazen said. The Bulldogs drove 70 yards and nearly scored again early in the fourth quarter, but the Buffs snatched the ball away from Patina at the Grey- bull 10 after a five-yard gain and after a discussion the referees ruled that his knee had not been down before the strip. After a short Greybull punt, the Bulldogs drove again but Pickett's broken leg took the wind out of the Lovell sails, and the Bull- dogs settled for a field goal, which Savage nailed from 31 yards to put Lovell up 24-6. Greybull drove against a Lovell prevent defense to score a late touchdown on a 16-yard pass to De- Cabooter, making the final score 24-13. Patina finished with 62 yards rushing on 15 car- ries, Mark Grant 57 yards on nine attempts. Collins added 39 yards on 14 car- ries, Pickett 14 yards on six attempts before his injury. Savage caught seven passes for 69 yards, Hinck- ley two for 82 yards, Na- than Grant two for 46, May and McArthur one for 13 each and Pickett one for 8 yards. McArthur led the team in defensive points with 25 on 11 assisted tackles, one solo tackle, one intercep- tion and a blocked kick. Mark Grant and Hinck- ley recorded 13 defensive points each, Savage 12, Na- than Grant and AJ Mon- tanez 10 apiecer BOBCATS TO TOWN Now 5-0, the Bulldogs can clinch a playoff berth and at least one home play- off game if they can beat the Thermopolis Bobcats Friday night at home. Kick- off is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Robertson Stadium. The Bobcats have been up and down this season after winning the past two Class 2A state titles. They've been tough in con- vincing wins over Big Pin- ey (48-22) and Kemmerer (42-6), but they have also lost big to Glenrock (29-12), Greybull (31-7) and Lyman (21-7) to stand at 2-3 on the season. "There's no doubt Ther- mop isn't going to roll over for us," Hazen said. "If we continue to win the play- offs set up in our favor. We need to win two out of the last three to get home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. "We haven't been able to beat them (Thermop) in the last few years, and they are two-time state champi- ons. We want to play well at home. We expect to win all of our home games." Hazen said the Bob- cats will give the Bulldogs a different look, both of- fensively and defensively, than they've seen in recent games. "They are well-coached, and they have talented players," he said. "They run a spread offense, which is different and a contrast from what we've seen re- cently. Defensively, they run a 3-5 with a number of linebackers. They try to mix you up, blitzing some guys and giving you differ- ent looks." 2A WEST FOOTBALL Conf.
