SPORTS SECTION 2 CHENEY FREE PRESS Thursday, October 1,2015 I 3 in Good newsis everyone emerges healthy for Cards By PAUL DELANEY Staff Reporter For Medical Lake the good take- aways from last Friday's 27-12 North- east A League loss to Deer Park at home on Hall of Fame Night were there were no injuries and the defense tightened up with its best effort since the season opener. While breaking into the win column for the first time this season would have been great for Cardinals head coach Wes Hobbs and his team, just keeping players healthy for another tough task this Friday where they take on Lakeside at Holliday Field at 7 p.m. is a small victory. "The lucky thing is we came out healthy," Hobbs said of his team that had lost starters from his two-dozen varsity players the past two Weeks. In addition, his defense, which in large part is also much of the offense in the single platoon system, shaved 20 points off the numbers they had given up against Colville in a 48-7 loss the previous week to one of the top-tier of the Northeast A League. "We came out and played good defense and were very competitive," Hobbs said. "Our kids really played hard, that's what we ask them to do." Dante Myers one and only carry on the night for 17 yards put the Stags ahead 7-0 with 6 minutes, 32 seconds to play in the opening quarter. The Cardinals answered when Brayden Hale caught a 25-yard touchdown pass from Cory Wagner with 3:21 to play, mak- ing it a 7-6 game. But Tyson Lira's 85-yard touchdown return on the ensuing kickoff, revealed the common thread that has woven its way through Medical Lake football so far Medical Lake's dalyn Musser gets added this season -- giving up big plays.
