The week 7 highlights marked several aspects to the calendar for the Basha Bear Program. First and foremost, the beginning of league play and the Chandler Wolves were on the schedule. Second, the conclusion to the first quarter of the school year and fall break beginning. Third, probably what most of us do not want to hear and that is that we are quickly nearing the end of the high school football season.
The Varsity Bears hosted the Wolves in a Thursday night game due to the Friday evening observance of Yom Kipper. The Wolves took control in the first half and never let go. The beginning of league play for the Bears ended in a 58-21 loss at John Wall Stadium. Unfortunately for the Bears, it marked their sixth straight consecutive loss on the year putting them 1-6. However, through this losing streak, they are not giving up on any game and are continuing to fight to the final whistle.
The JV Bears played Wednesday evening at Chandler High School. The Bears tried hard but were unable to get the breaks to go their way before losing 35-7. For the JV Bears, this was their first loss of the season and I’m sure a tough one to swallow considering their success this season. The JV Bears are no longer undefeated and fall to 5-1 on the season.
The Freshman Bears ran into a buzz saw Wednesday evening at home. The Wolves came out strong and put it on the Bears beating them 56-0. The Bears tried hard but were just no match for the Chandler Wolves Freshman team. The loss by the Freshman Bears brings their record to 2-4.
