Colville runs over La Salle

November 18, 2014

Tough Royal next in quarterfinals

Colville High head coach Randy Cornwell has said more than once that his 10-0 Indians are an “all-weather” football team. Cornwell wasn’t kidding.
CHS was more physical (nothing new there) and more inclined to play through temperatures in the teens at frigid Colville last Friday night. The result: An easy 52-14 win over visiting La Salle in the first round of the State 1A playoffs.
This mismatch was game, set, match early. Colville ran back the opening kickoff. The early lead was negated on a bonehead CHS penalty well behind the run.

Panthers struggle past Touchet

Once again, the Cusick Panthers were involved in a 1B- 8-man playoff game against the Touchet Indians that came down to the final minutes, and once again the Panthers came out on top, this time with a hard-earned 34-28 road victory over a rugged opponent.
“Whenever we play Touchet it’s that way,” said CHS head coach Sonny Finley. “We were expecting a close game the whole way…we really didn’t expect it to come down to the final possession again, but it did.”

Republic decimates Pomeroy

November 18, 2014

in Spokane Friday

Quarterback Aaron Fritts and the twins—seniors Alex and Angelo Rivera—all ran for more than 100 yards to lead streaking Republic (10-1) to a 56-0 smashing of Pomeroy in a State 1B (eight-man) playoff game last Friday night at frozen Kettle Falls.
The playoff game had been moved from Republic because of alleged issues with the Tigers’ home field (no press box and no fence around the perimeter of the field).
