For KFHS, the offense is still a work in progress. But head coach Curtis Corvino liked what he saw in the second half against Tonasket.

After one of the poorest rushing performances in the recent history of the program one week earlier against unbeaten Freeman, the Indians cranked up their normally dependable ground game against a Chewelah team that lost 17 seniors from last season’s Northeast A League championship bunch.
