Sky-Em first place showdown in Lions' den

Posted: Wednesday, Oct 9th, 2013

Photo by Jerry Thompson Senior Brad Bonds left La Pine Hawks in his wake when he cut behind Marcus Bailey's block and ran 64 yards for the first of the Lions' 11 touchdowns Friday night.

The outcome of last Friday’s football game against La Pine was never in doubt. For the Lions the goals were twofold: to take care of business quickly against an out-manned opponent and come away healthy. The Grovers succeeded on both counts in a 76-6 shellacking of the hapless Hawks. Fortunately for La Pine it will be the last time they will have to suffer such a defeat to Cottage Grove or any other 4A school. Next fall, the Hawks will be moved down to the 3A division.

After the opening kickoff was returned to their own 36, it took the Lions just one play to score. Scotty Hitner connected with Brad Bonds on an inside screen pass, and Bonds took it 64 yards to paydirt.
