Coeur d’ Alene downed University to win the Gold finale, and host Lakeland beat Reardan to capture the Bronze title.

Chewelah offense sputters in tough loss to Warden

September 16, 2015

LHS up next

Chewelah (1-1) came into Friday’s non-league high school football game ready to replicate the success they had the previous week in Priest River. Unfortunately against the Warden Cougars, the JHS offense struggled to gain yardage and keep possession of the ball in a 24-16 loss.
Head coach Jim Fisk summed it up.
“Defensively, we played well enough to win, but offensively, we did not,” Fisk said.
Three interceptions caused most of the damage, killing two scoring opportunities for Chewelah, and setting up a Warden touchdown.

Indians dominated up front in loss to Cheney

September 10, 2015

Offense a no
show in opener

After Cheney High (1-0) controlled the line of scrimmage all night against a mostly green and inexperienced Colville High (0-1) front last Friday night at Cheney in the season-opener for both schools, it’s obvious the Indians have a lot of work to do.
Ty Graham, possibly the best running back Colville will see this fall, ran for 136 yards on 16 carries to lead Cheney to a 28-0 whitewash of the Indians.
Graham scored once on the ground and once when he was the recipient of a weird bounce after a short Colville punt

Several hunting seasons opened yesterday

September 2, 2015

It’s time to go hunting. Yesterday, Tuesday, Sept. 1, was a big day for hunters. The migratory waterfowl and upland game bird pamphlet is now available. Get one and study it.
This year the dove season will run from Sept. 1 through Oct. 30. This is a month longer than usual, plus the limit is up from 10 to 15.
Forest grouse is also open, with a limit of four a day, but not more than three of each species. Cottontail and snowshoe hare season is open with a limit of five, mixed bag.

Chewelah looks for improvements

September 2, 2015

Big group of
starters are back

With most of their starters back from last season, the Chewelah Cougars look to improve on the 2-8 record posted in 2014 and become more competitive in the Northeast A League this season.
Finding their rhythm hasn’t been easy, since poor air quality from the wildfires burning in the region pushed the Cougars indoors for much of the last week.
But at least Chewelah isn’t alone. Most teams have spent extended time on gym floors.
“It’s been tough,” conceded veteran JHS coach Jim Fisk. “We were inside for four days last week.

No reason to think Colville won’t be in the mix again

September 2, 2015

NEA champion
has reloaded

Colville High lost 18 seniors off arguably the best football team in school history last fall. The Indians finished 12-1, were second-ranked among State 1A teams for much of the season, and lost a state championship in the Tacoma Dome by six-inches in overtime or a missed field goal in the waning seconds of regulation.
Either way, it was painful.
That 27-26 loss to Cascade Christian, in a game played at an exceedingly high level, still stings. But that one’s history and it’s time to create some new memories—and history.
