  • Maniacs pillaged by Pilgrims 61–7; exit play-offs, but still have heart
    The Orofino Maniacs played their last game of the 2010 football season last Friday at New Plymouth. It was almost over before it began. By the time the KLER Radio set-up crew found New Plymouth, and found the Pilgrims football field - and found a plug-in, the Maniacs were already down by seven, having fumbled inside their own five yard line on the first play of the game. It only took New Plymouth a couple more plays after the broadcast began and Orofino was down by 14 points with three and a half minutes left in the first quarter. To read the rest of this article, subscribe or log in.
