Grizzlies hurt by Pride

GARDEN VALLEY — If Friday night’s game against Bradshaw Christian is an indication how the rest of the Sierra Delta League campaign goes, then it’s every-team-will-gun-to-dethrone defending league champion Golden Sierra as the Pride did behind three, quick first quarter scores that helped lead to a 42-7 win.

“Thats one real good, well-coached team over there” said Bradshaw coach Drew Rickert of the Grizzlies. “Their record is not real indicative of how good they are. We wanted to get out to a good start and get on the board quick.”

The visiting Pride wasted little time, scoring on their fourth play of the game, a Grant Dragmire 75-yard run. The Pride offense methodically took five minutes and 11 plays find the end zone again for a 14-0 lead.

“Bradshaw (Christian) definitely came into tonight with something to prove,” Golden Sierra coach John Hilton said. “They came out and gave us a real good shot to the mouth. I thought we could have competed with them earlier on but they really got us out of sync early.”

After a second straight three-and-out series by the Grizzlies, the Pride needed just one play to score as Kevin Williams connected with Kyle Betts on a 45 yard scoring toss. The offense woes continued for the home team as its next drive ended with a interception.

“Against a team like Bradshaw you can’t afford to turn the ball over,” Hilton said. ” We had too many turnovers and against a team like that and the way they were playing, we can’t make those kinds of mistakes.”

Daniel Lesher’s interception stopped the Pride on their next drive and set up the Grizzlies’ lone score. After a big 22-yard run by Brian Cann moved Golden Sierra to its 42, Cann found room around the left end for a 58-yard touchdown run. The senior led the team with 99 yards on nine carries.

Bradshaw added two more first-half scores and after a late third quarter fumble added its final points.

“We talked at halftime that the first half really wasnt the type of team we were,” Hilton said. ” This group of guys, they understand the situtation and playing with pride. I thought they did that the second half.”

Cameron Stephens and Jeff Khlan added 35 yards rushing each for the Grizzlies. Stephens added a 18 yard reception. Nick White had two catches for 19 yards. Lesher passed for 48 yards.

Golden Sierra’s JV kept rolling along in its undefeated season, this time by way of a 38-8 win over Lindhurst.
