Photos by Shelley Harman Memories, bonfire and battle on the gridiron mark WHS homecoming By Marguerite Alexander Editor, The Sun Willamina High School held its homecoming festivities at the Glen Larkins field on Fri- day. A stadium full of specta- tors including members of the WHS classes of 1953 and 1978 came to watch the Bulldogs battle the Colton Vikings. As the crowd gathered, the lraditional bonfire blazed north- east of the football field and a full Hunter's Moon cast its light on gridiron. Prior to the kickoff, former Willamina baton twirlers - in- eluding Lover Cook Cannon of the class of 1953 and members from the late 70's and early 80's teams - demonstrated their skills to the crowd. They represented 63 years of baton twirling in WiUamina that included inter- state competition in 1952. The choir sang the National Anthem before the pep band. smack up a fight song. The Bulldogs fought val- iantly, but lost to Colton 57 to 28. "I was proud that when we got down the kids battled back," said coach Tim France. Willamina took an early lead with Coty Brown scoring the first touchdown of the game early in the first quarter. With an extra two points, Willamina took the lead, 8 to 0. The Viking tied the score three minutes later. Before the end of the first quarter, they scored another touchdown. With a successful field goal, the Vikings took the lead. In the final seconds ofthe first quarter, Colton's quarterback, Drexler Hall, broke through on the right side scoring a third touchdown for the V'ddngs. The attempt at the field goal failed leaving the score atthe end of the first quarter at 21 to 8. A fumble in the second quarter put the ball in the hands of Hall who ran the ball down the field and into the end zone for another 6 points for the Vi- kings. A pass to Charlie Gilpin gave Colton another 2 points. The Bulldogs fought back. After advancing down the field, a complete pass to Coty Brown gave the next touchdown to Willamina. An attempt at two more points failed. The V'ddngs couldn't get their hands on the ball following the kickoff. The bulldogs recovered the ball and a couple plays later a pass to Shane Thomas put the Bulldogs in scoring position. The crowd went wild when the Dawgs scored the touch- dowrl,on_the third attempt. Driving the ball up the ride side brought in another two points bringing the score to 22 for the Bulldogs and 29 for the Vi- kings.
