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.

The sunny, mild day proved to be a record-setter for West Valley’s Skylar Ovnicek and McCall Skay, who demolished the old Can-Am standards by significant margins in their respective races.

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.

Chewelah wins a thriller

September 16, 2014

Cougs on the road at Lakeside

For the second straight week, Jenkins High played a thriller on the football field. But unlike the previous week when Chewelah dropped a heartbreaker to Priest River to open the season, the Cougars downed Warden, 24-21.
Over the previous week, head coach Jim Fisk and his staff worked to correct the mistakes Chewelah made in that opener against Priest River. The hard work paid off with an improved defense and a solid passing game.

Republic back on track

September 16, 2014

After turnovers and penalties cost Republic High an opening season win at home over Entiat, the Tigers got back on track last Friday at Almira-Coulee/Hartline with a workmanlike and wild 64-32 win.
RHS pretty much ran ACH (0-2) into the ground, scoring 42 points in the third and fourth quarters to break open a close game.
Angelo Rivera rushed for 255 yards on 16 carries and scored four touchdowns for Republic in Coulee City. Quarterback Aaron Fritts added a pair of passing touchdowns and two TDs on the ground.

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.”
