PIG BOWL 2014
PIG BOWL 2014
WAS OUR 12th YEAR
OUR BEST YEAR?
Well, Not everything went exactly as planned,
but as always God worked out all the details!
Perfect Weather, Great Food, Great Fellowship, Great Fun, Great Football!
THE PRE GAME
With Police Escort from Goldendale City Police Department, Hood River County Sheriff’s Office, Hood River City Police Department, Klickitat County Sheriff’s Office, Oregon State Police, Washington State Police, Wasco County Sheriff’s Office, The Dalles City Police Department and Columbia River Intertribal
Misty & Derek Martin and Josh Miner along with his brother Jeremiah, his mother Angie and his father Eric arrived at the field in style thanks to some 2014 Jeep Wranglers on loan from Urness Motors.
Oregon won the coin toss and started with the ball. Oregon’s Quarterback, Deputy Jeremy Dutton of the Wasco County Sheriff’s Office tweaked his knee on the second play of the game and was sidelined for the remainder. OSP Trooper Zistel swatted a long 4th down pass to get the ball back for Oregon and they scored first making it 6-0 Oregon in the first quarter. Zistel added an interception in the second quarter, but Oregon tossed a pair of their own. In the second quarter Oregon added a safety and Washington Quarterback Deputy Ross Guiney of the Klickitat County Sheriff’s Office tossed a Touchdown pass to WSP Trooper Ryan Senger, making it 8-6 at the half.
The third quarter was a defensive battle with additional interceptions thrown by both teams. The turning point in the game came in the fourth quarter when Washington attempted a field goal with under two minutes to play. The kick hit recipient Josh Miner’s brother, Jeremiah, in the back of the head and a Pig Bowl Official picked up the loose ball and ran it into the end zone for the touchdown saying, “it was a live ball”. This gave Washington the lead 14-8. On the ensuing drive, Oregon threw another interception and it appeared Washington would be able to run out the clock. However on their first play from scrimmage, a botched handoff on a wide receiver reverse saw the ball hit the ground. OSP picked up the fumble returning it for a touchdown to tie the game at 14-14. The extra point was missed and for the first time ever the pig bowl ended in a tie. Well, sort of. It was a tie on the field, but thanks to points purchased in the stands and pig noises on the PA, the scoreboard had
Oregon dominating Washington 1855 to 1279!!
Hundreds of fans were on hand and many points were purchased for both teams. Several Pig Noises went out over the PA System and everyone went home with full stomachs thanks to Papa Murphy’s, Pepsi, Dutch Brothers and Safeway. Wes Muscanko won the halftime 50/50 Raffle pocketing over $250, but as is often the case in the giving spirit of the Pig Bowl, Wes turned around and spent $150 on three touchdowns for the Washington team! Another highlight was when last years Recipient, Donovan Doroski, said a few inspiring words at half time. Giving God All the Glory and full credit, Donovan thanked all the fans for their support and thanked the Pig Bowl for assisting with his bone marrow transplant and now 100% clean bill of health! Praise The Lord!
In the end the real winners were Joshua Miner and Misty Martin…..
scroll down to POST GAME to see how much money was raised this year!
On Wednesday Night September 24th at 6:00pm Pig Bowl Board Members met at Westwind Frame & Gallery for a special presentation to the families.
Marty Hiser presented a beautiful collage of Pig Bowl photos to each family.
Giant size checks designed by Pig Bowl Secretary Tammy Keys at Bohn’s Printing were made out to each recipient.
A total of $25,350.20 was raised at this years event!!
Just in case you were doing the math, the checks were written for $12,475 because a few hundred dollars had yet to be collected and deposited. That money will be given to Josh & Misty on a later date.
Board Members then took the recipients out to dinner at Canton Wok who donated their banquet room for the occasion.
