Our Skyline boys had another great victory of Freshman, JV and Varsity teams over longtime rivals IF Tigers at the Emotion Bowls on Sept. 26 and 27. This makes for year six of blue goal posts. 

The varsity came out strong with an impressive 19-point lead in the first quarter. Just before halftime, Maloney scored a touchdown that put our Skyline Grizzlies up to 25 points. The Tigers had a bit of success in the third quarter, but it wasn’t enough, and our boys in blue finished on top 33-21.

Eli Ames(11) knew it was time to celebrate when his team scored the final touchdown. “I was nervous because it was my first time on the field after getting back from injuries,” Ames said. “I prepare myself by staying focused,” he added. 

Kaleb Ford (11) was pretty happy when his team scored the final touchdown. “I was nervous because I haven’t seen that many people before.” In order to stay calm, he said, “I listen to music and take deep breaths.” All of our boys in blue are confident that Skyline will win the Emotion Bowl again next year for a perfect streak of 7..

The JV game was also demonstrated a lot of Grizz strength. The score was 18-7 at the end of the game

Kiano Kishiyma (10) was “super hyped” about winning the JV Emotion Bowl. “I was super nervous because we were short on guys and I didn’t want to lose our Emotion Bowl.” 

Noah Sorensen (10) said, “I was really glad that Skyline could come on top and win then JV Emotion Bowl.”  Since the Freshman Grizzlies won, Sorensen had good thoughts. “I put a lot of faith into my team.”

The freshman game was a complete massacre of the poor kitties. The score was 48 for our Skyline Grizzlies and 12 for the IF Tigers. Tuey Edwin (9), a Freshman player, said that when they won “It was crazy!!! It felt like everything fell into place.” He was nervous because it was his first Emotion Bowl. “I didn’t want to be that guy that ruins the 6-year streak,” Edwin said. 

Avery Bright (9), who is a defensive linemen, said,I already knew we won,” speaking of when the freshman team scored the final touchdown.
