Why Cardinals dethrone Seahawks in the NFC West

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.

Bluff scores four
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.

‘When it rains, it pours’

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.

Freeman makes quick work of overmatched Chewelah

October 1, 2014

Colville up

Chewelah played host to defending State 1A champion Freeman last Friday night and the veteran Scotties made quick work of the Cougars, jumping out to a 20 point first quarter lead on their way to an easy and workmanlike 53-0 victory.
Chewelah head coach Jim Fisk summed up the game pretty succinctly.
“They’ve got a good ball club, but we didn’t play exceptionally well and until we stop making so many mistakes, it’s going to be tough,” Fisk said.

Indians bury
Rams early

Colville High (4-0, 2-0) got its most complete performance of the season on both sides of the ball in a 52-0 mauling of host Riverside at Chattaroy last Friday night.
The Indians scored 22 points in the first quarter and 22 more in the second quarter on the way to a 44-0 halftime lead in this Northeast A League mismatch.
Colville took full advantage of four Riverside turnovers. The first came on an RHS fumble at the 16-yard line. CHS took all of four plays to cover those 16 yards.

After one year’s hiatus caused by federal government shenanigans (otherwise referred to as the costly federal government shutdown), the annual Can-Am high school and middle school cross-country meet returns once again to the scenic Kettle Falls National Recreation picnic area along the shores of Lake Roosevelt.
Last year’s transplanted Can-Am was held at Colville High School and on Dominion/Rotary Trail.
