FOOTBALL NEWS Poplar - 6 Plentywood - k7 The Poplar Indians fell to defeat to the Wildcats on Friday night. It was a very disappointing game, the kids really wanted to beat them". "I can best say we had a good line 3 times in the 1st quarter "I can best say we had a good effort but forgot how to tackle". Many times we had them stopped in the backfield but just didn't tackle them. We stopped them on the goal line 3 times in the 1st quarter to keep them from scoring - they made the big plays on us - an example of that is we had them 3 4 10 yds to go and we tackled Ritland in the backfield -he spun around and broke away and ran U0 yds. for a T.D. We have to do the basics well to win, and we just didn't perform well. I'm hoping we pick up the tempo this weekend and put it together for Scobey. I hope Steve Rowe can pick up 62 more yds to go over 1,000 on Saturday. I'd like to say thank you to all the freshmen who have stuck it out and to those loyal 16 people who came to practice all last week. Good Luck this Saturday. NOTICE HEARING SCREENINGS On the dates listed below, Roxanne Bean, Audiologist and Marjory Ackley, Audio Technician from the Glasgow Easter Seal Center's Eastern Region II Hearing Conservation Program will be conducting hearing screenings in your area schools. This service will be done without charge as a service of your child's school district. This hearing screening involves three things: first, a look in the ears to make sure the canal is clear; second, a test called "accoustic impedance" which determines the condition of the middle ear; third, a pure tone test which tells how well a student hears at different frequencies. If your child is under the care of a physician or an ear specialist, you will probably want a copy of the results sent to the doctor. Please let the screening team know at the school. If, for some reason, you do not want your child's hearing screened please contact the school. com. on pg. 2
