CHELAN -- The Chelan High School Mountain Goats football team is ready to head butt the Cashmere Bulldogs this Friday, Oct. 11, starting at 7 p.m., at home. The Bulldogs are just as ready to deliver some big bites.

Make no mistake about it, this is a long-running Hatfield/McCoy type of battle and neither coach is eager to let down their respective Alumni ... or they'll hear it until next year's game.

“The shoe game is special in the fact that it represents what small town High School sports is all about. Its about our school, and the community coming together to celebrate each other. In a day and age where priorities of high school students are changing, rivalry football games provides lifelong memories to dedicated student athletes that take school and community pride seriously. These types of games  test our youths mental and physical toughness, and that is what makes football special. Its an event that tests our pride in our school and community. It tests our athletes effort to prepare. All of these things help with our students future endeavors. The game is not like any other game we play because of the history. Its our version of the apple cup. We are excited each year for this game. Cashmere is a well coached football team, and they will be prepared. We feel like if we prepare as best we can, we can play and beat anyone. We look forward to friday night,’’ Travis Domser, Chelan High School head football coach.

Bulldogs Head Coach Bryan Bremer, in only his second season at the helm, spoke with the Lake Chelan Mirror Monday and said, "the Chelan game and the Cascade game are the two games my players seem to look forward to the most out of the entire season."

For both communities the Battle of the Shoe game is a big deal. 

The Mountain Goats are off to a great start and Domser was last week’s Seattle Seahawks/WSFCA Football Coach of the Week. Congratulations Travis!
