Before your Bulldogs notched the team’s first win of the season Friday night, 20 Chelsea boys and girls participated in a punt, pass and kick competition on the practice field next door to Jerry Niehaus Field.
Eight girls and 12 boys took the line for the fun competition put on by the Chelsea Kiwanis and the winners in each age group category advanced to the next round, which will take place later this fall.
“This is the first one in recent memory,” said Dave Schaible, chairman of the event. “This is something that the Kiwanis will continue next year; it’s an event that will get better numbers in the future.”
