What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

I wish they were; they are missing a lot.\ \ Soccer is so much better than football,\ said Miller, \there's ~lways action. The ball's always moving . It's so much fun, and I • don ' t think I could play football, because of the aura around foot- ball - the football scene just doesn ' t turn me on.\ Miller has been playing soccer for two and a half years and will continue to play, like many other soccer players in Missoula. When senior Dave Bond com- - pared soccer to football, he said, \Well basically, football doesn't require brains except · for the memorization of plays . Soccer requires you to think all the time . I think you have to be in a lot better shape to play soccer.\ Junior Joanna Bond said, \Soccer's not as rough as foot- ball. It can be, but it doesn't have to. It doesn't involve all the tackling .\ Dave has been playing soccer for six years, while Joanna just started a year ago. Joanna started because the rest of her family played. \When I tried it, I had a lot of fun,\ said Joanna . Miller said, \ I love it now . I'm a soccer maniac. One thing I really like about it is that it's a reason to get together with friends.\ \It's a really good , fast going, competitive game,\ said Joanna. Dave likes the running around and scoring goals most about · soccer. Dave said, \It's a contact sport, and it gets me in a lot bet- ter shape than anything else . It's exciting and everyone can play.\ \I have a lot of team spirit, \ said Joanna. She said she keeps playing because \it's so fun .\ Joanna added ; \The game is fast; it's not boring. It ' s always going. \ Both Joanna Bond and Jenny Miller started playing soccer through the YMCA . Dave started playing through the YMCA when he moved here. The YMCA fall season is almost done, with only the tournament left. \I'd really like to see a soccer team in school,\ said Miller. \YMCA was fun, but once I really got into it (soccer), I liked co-ree (a female / male city league) better. It's faster and plays more soccer . It's not just kicking the ball around like the girl ' s teams in YMCA.\ Joanna disagrees with Miller about having a school team . \YMCA is already basically school teams. More kids can play in YMCA,\ said Joanna. Dave said, \YMCA is defi- nitely a good program . Some soccer should be school affili- ated, though . It doesn't cost much.\ There are six YMCA girl's t~ams, grades seven through Placement of the girl's teams: twelve, and six boy's teams, grades nine through twelve. Two points are received for every win, one point for a tie, and no points for a loss. The top four teams are the four that have the highest points, and they will con- . tend for the championship.
