Priest River
wins a wild one

The Chewelah Cougars opened the 2014 high school football season at home last Friday night against Priest River. Despite jumping out to an early 13-0 lead, the Cougars were unable to hold on to that lead in a wild, high-scoring contest and fell to the Spartans 36-33.

“We looked ragged at times,” Fisk acknowledged. “The parts are there, but we just have to execute.”
