Total domination

October 16, 2014

Colville rolls
over top-ranked Freeman

Sometimes final scores can be deceiving. So it went last Friday night in front of a packed house at Colville High School, where the ninth-ranked Indians dominated from the outset in a convincing 28-7 rout of top-ranked and defending State 1A champion Freeman.
The game wasn’t that close.
Colville (6-0) simply dominated the Scotties, who came in riding a 19-game winning streak. The only hiccup for the Indians was a 35-yard Freeman touchdown on the first play from scrimmage of the second half. That cut the CHS lead to 14-7.

TDs for Cats

In an early Northeast 1B football matchup between playoff contending teams, the Cusick Panthers rode an incredible 50-point opening quarter to a 70-30 victory over the Selkirk Rangers last Friday night in Cusick.
Cusick head coach Sonny Finley was impressed with his team’s offensive explosion and school record.
“They came out and scored on us first, but we were able to put up 50 points and I was pretty impressed with our offensive output,” Finley said of the fast break onslaught.

Cougars lose two
key players
& game

Chewelah went into their Homecoming game against Riverside last Friday night looking for a Northeast A League victory. But injuries and inconsistent play by the hosts let the Rams pull away in the second half for a 34-6 road win over the struggling Cougars.
Chewelah found itself behind the eight ball before the game started after the loss of starting quarterback Blake Owens to a broken left (throwing) hand on Wednesday. Early in the game, Chewelah also lost Andrew Hansen to a rib injury.

Colville, Freeman tangle in battle of unbeatens

October 8, 2014

Indians,
Scotties mirror images

One of the state’s most significant high school football games to date in 2014 will be played Friday night when unbeaten, defending State 1A champion Freeman brings its veteran cast to Colville to face the unbeaten Indians.
Game time for one of the most important regular season football games in recent CHS memory is 7 p.m.
Colville (5-0, 3-0) and Freeman ((5-0, 3-0) are familiar protagonists over the years. The Indians and Scotties, if they aren’t vying for a Northeast A League title, always seem to be on each other’s non-league schedules.

Community members take on drugs in Yep Kanum

October 7, 2014

Three men sit at a picnic table in Yep Kanum Park, all there for very specific, similar reasons. Ian Pickett, his brother Michael Pickett, and friend Tony Gorst, all Colville residents, are part of a handful of concerned citizens on a mission to take back Yep Kanum Park. Over the past several years, the park, which is located in a wooded two acres in the heart of Colville, has garnered a reputation for vandal¬ism, loitering, and illegal drug use.
The last straw for Ian Pickett was when his 16-year-old daughter was warned by class¬mates not to go to the park by herself.
