First Home Football Game of 2009
The many who gathered in the Oak Bowl for the first home game of the season saw the Bobcats plan an inspired game, running the score to 20-3 by the conclusion of a high-octane first half.
The final score of 23-11 against the #24 ranked Jamestown College "Jimmies" turned a page on last week's loss against Hastings College. The "Jimmies" opened their season in Peru.
I was pleased to spot again--year number sixteen, I think--in the Press Box with my colleagues pictured on the right.
As I did for the first game last year, I wandered around before the game and during half time to take photographs and to make a couple videos.
As usual, you will find a slide show from the game on my photography page; feel free to download selected shots or the entire album.
Take a look at the short video--under five minutes--from the game. You really need to click on "HQ" (High Quality) for this effort, as some shots cover a lot of distance for my camera. The video contains video of the players, the cheerleaders, and the Peru State College Pep band under the direction of Ken Meints.
In addition, the video features some of the pictures from yesterday, from the football players to a radio announcer and various friends of the college, including Bob and Barb Lewellen pictured at the conclusion of the blog.
Everyone enjoyed a great game in stellar weather.
