Chewelah loses a wild one

September 10, 2014

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.
Head coach Jim Fisk knows the Cougars are a work in progress at this juncture.
“We looked ragged at times,” Fisk acknowledged. “The parts are there, but we just have to execute.”

CHS back in
the NEA

Colville High, who made some inroads last season in their final fling in the 2A Great Northern girl’s soccer league, will be a player and a factor in the retooled and improved Northeast A League this fall.
The Indians and Deer Park both relocated from the GNL to the NEA this fall. That will make for a more competitive league.
“We should be in the mix,” figured head coach Dave Rarrick, the Dean of NEA soccer coaches (entering his 17th season with the CHS girls program). “There are a lot of new faces in the league.”

Colville defense comes up big

September 10, 2014

Indians hold
Cheney to
one TD

Colville High (1-0) used a gritty, opportunistic defense to hold off Cheney and record a 12-10 non-league, opening season win at home last Friday night.
Colville, who finished second in the Great Northern 2A league last season, has moved back into the Northeast A League, where the Indians have been installed as one of the pre-season favorites, along with defending 1A champion Freeman. But CHS likes to schedule rigorous early-season opposition. In Cheney and West Valley (on the road this Friday), CHS certainly has accomplished that in spades.
