In My Own Words: A Junior High Football player talks about scoring a touchdown
In My Own WordsIn this installment of In My Own Words, Kaden Swope talks his fourth quarter touchdown against Elizabethtown in a recent Junior High Football game.
But after all, I did just score a touchdown.
We were playing Elizabethtown on Wednesday, October 4 in a Junior High football game. Almost immediately, it looked like this was going to be an easy win for Lampeter-Strasburg. Etown threw an interception to our defensive back in the first play of the game. He nearly returned it for a touchdown.
We scored on that drive and stopped them for a three and out of their next drive on offense. After multiple drives, the game was at halftime.
My coach told us that we were doing a great job, but we could also be doing little better on defense. I ran the ball a lot during the second half of the game.
At the start of the fourth quarter, the score was already 35-0. We were crushing them.
After another three and out for Elizabethtown, we ran the clock out and won the game 42-0. It was a complete shutout. It was definitely a game to remember for the Pioneers.
