Saturday morning started off with some opening season action for Lake Havasu City’s Chiefs Youth Football team.
Like any first game of the season, the Chiefs used Saturday’s games as an opportunity to find any and all kinks the team may have. The stands were filled to capacity with enthusiastic fans for the opener.
The Mitey Mites Chiefs took on the Brawley Wildcats in a tough back and forth battle that gave the young Chiefs a rigorous test right out of the gates. The coaches saw this first game as an opportunity to get the players acclimated and used to the rules of the game.
Ultimately, the Chiefs hope to go all the way through the playoffs and win their Superbowl in order to move on to regionals, with the big goal of making it to nationals.
With seven games remaining in the season prior to playoffs, the Chiefs will have plenty of time to perfect their play and build upon any weaknesses or faults exposed. The Chiefs play again Sept. 8 at 8 a.m. against River Valley.
