Tiny Mites win again
October 23, 2008
The South Tahoe Pop Warner football teams had a tough week with only the Tiny Mite team posting a win.
The Tiny Mites continued to show they come ready to play, winning their third game in a row, this time 48-36 over the Reno Ravens.
“Malachi Womack and Tristan Klasko lead our offensive line this week helping us score on every procession,” said head coach Shane Davis. “Dylan Martin and Daniel Hibler made some key tackles late in the game to help seal the victory. Our team is playing well beyond my expectations and boy is that fun to watch.”
The Tiny Mites will try and make it four straight wins on Friday night at 6 p.m. when they play the Douglas Tigers at Stodick Park.
The Mitey Mites lost 20-12 in a hard-fought battle against the undefeated Truckee Wolverines on Saturday in Viking Bowl.
Tommy Cefalu and Dismas Womack ran the ball effectively all day with Cefalu scoring both touchdowns. Quarterback Dylan Gooding was 3 for 4 passing for nearly 100 yards. Defensively, the entire squad played very hard.

Riley Carpenter, Harry Moses and Lukias Cook all contributed several tackles each, while Nick Durham, Anrdew Herrera and Jared Barnard were in the backfield putting pressure on Truckee’s quarterback the entire game. Dylan Lance blasted through their offensive line for a quarterback sack stalling a drive late in the game.
“Although we lost the game, the kids never gave up, we were still in the game late in fourth quarter and I’m really proud of this team’s efforts and determination all year and playing hard every game,” said head coach Tony Gooding.
The Mitey Mites face Douglas on Friday night at 8:30 at Stodick Park.
The Pee Wee Vikings battled tough on both sides of the ball in losing 30-0 to the Douglas Tigers, the top team in the division.
Cornerback Blake Petersen had a great game on defense, containing the corner and making several touchdown-saving tackles. Cameron Montanari was an offensive stand out picking up two or three players every play and continuing to block down field.
“The offense sustained some long drives against the toughest defense in our division, we were happy with that as coaches,” said head coach Jamie Giunta, whose team has a road game against Fallon on Saturday at 1 p.m.
The Junior Midget team also had a difficult day losing to another tough Douglas Tiger team. On Friday, they play the Reno Patriots at 8 p.m. at Reno’s Mira Loma Park.
“Taylor Weik continued his always strong effort, scoring our only touchdown on a long pass reception,” said head coach Shawn Miller. “The offensive line also did a great job with pass protection today”. Final score 20-6.
The Junior Pee Wee team had a bye this week but returns to action on Friday night at 8 against the Carson Senators at Governors Field in Carson City.
