The Chewelah Cougars (1-7, 1-4) went into last Fridayâ€™s Northeast A League football game with Newport expecting a more competitive game. While the Cougars trailed 7-6 after three quarters, two fourth quarter touchdowns sent Chewelah to a 21-6 defeat.
The Cougars started a new backfield in this game. Chewelah was without injured quarterback Blake Owens and running back Scott Stumpf.
Quarterback McKenzie Miller and running backs Stephen Beamer and Tory McKern picked up the slack, but the Cougars couldnâ€™t find the end zone.
