Timberwolves let one slip away

October 12, 2011

Woulda-coulda-shoulda.
So it has gone this season for the Columbia-Inchelium football team.
The Timberwolves (1-2, 2-4) couldn’t take advantage of a once powerhouse Cusick team (3-1, 4-2) that because of graduation and some injuries to key players this season, is a shell of its former self. Cusick did just enough offensively to pull out a 36-28 win at Hunters last Friday afternoon in a key Northeast 1B North game.
“We had our opportunities,” conceded C-I coach Chuck Wyborney. “The table was set for us to knock them off. But we made too many mistakes.”

Putting the “try” in Triathlon: Run, hamster, run!

October 5, 2011

I hate treadmills. Hate, hate, hate, hate, hate. Perhaps hate is too strong an utterance for a machine that is basically the bastard offspring of a conveyor belt and hamster wheel, so let me rephrase that. If treadmills were the symbolic piñata of all my prejudices and distaste for physical fitness, I would hang it from a tree branch and beat the ever-loving stuffing out of it.

Chewelah hopes to get back on winning track

October 5, 2011

The Chewelah Cougars volleyball team is entering a tough stretch of games and looking to find consistency in the midst of a five-match losing streak. Last week, the Cougars dropped three hard-fought matches against Newport, Kettle Falls and Riverside, while struggling on offense, defense and serving at various times in the past week.
“We matched up well, but we broke down defensively quite a bit,” coach Wendy Stenbeck said. “The other teams didn’t...they out hustled us.”

League-leading Freeman too much for Chewelah

October 5, 2011

The Chewelah Cougars (1-4, 0-2) faced off against the Freeman Scotties (5-0, 2-0) on Friday night in Chewelah in a key Northeast A League football game. The Cougars held their own for most of the first half, but two late touchdowns by league-leading Freeman in the first half opened up the game and the Scotties never looked back, cruising to a 41-12 victory on Senior Night for Chewelah.
For the second straight week, the big play was the nemesis of the Cougar defense--a touchdown pass of 56 yards and two other touchdowns set up by plays of 40-plus yards in the first half.
