Colville comeback falls short

September 22, 2011

For the first time in three games, the Colville High offense came to play last Friday at Newport in the Northeast A League opener for both football teams.
It has been a frustrating early-season for the Indians (0-3, 0-1) so far. Coming into the Newport game, CHS hadn’t scored a touchdown from scrimmage.
But that all changed at Newport--the Indians roared back from a 27-7 deficit to nearly pull out a much-needed win.
But Newport (3-0, 1-0) held on to record a 33-28 win.

Chewelah runs Farragut

September 22, 2011

Chewelah's cross-country team ran its second meet of the season last Saturday at Farragut State Park along the shores of Pend Oreille Lake in north Idaho.
The young squad ran short-handed, but made improvements on individual times and impressed coach Pat Kostecka with their hard work. The meet wasn’t originally on the Cougars' schedule, so the team missed several runners to prior commitments
“It’s amazing how many things kids get involved in these days,” Kosstecka said of the prior commitments several of his squad members had on Saturday. “We didn't have many run this week.”

Kettle’s offense rolls in rout of Tonasket

September 15, 2011

Kettle Falls High dominated across the board last Friday in an impressive 35-15 non-league football win over Tonasket.

Columbia-Inchelium visits Northport on Friday

September 15, 2011

Columbia-Inchelium (1-1), coming off a lackluster 26-14 loss at Wilbur-Creston last Friday, will travel to Northport (1-1) Friday night in a key Northeast B-8 football match-up with the Mustangs. Game time is 7 p.m. Columbia-Inchelium head coach Chuck Wyborney wasn’t pleased with the way his team played against the Wildcats. And the veteran coach placed the blame squarely on himself and his coaching staff.

Colville wins high-powered Lakeland Invitational

September 14, 2011

It’s something of a testament to how talented the current Colville High volleyball team is when the Indians annex the high-powered Lakeland Invitational championship and coach Missy Bennett says her team didn’t play as well as it could have.
It’s only September.
Next to the Crossover Tournament, the annual Lakeland Invitational likely has the best field of any tournament the Indians will play in this fall.
Okay, the State 1A Tournament counts for something. After all, this team has some lofty goals this fall.

Omak overpowers Kettle Falls

September 8, 2011

Maybe it’s time to stop scheduling Omak High for the football season opener (hint to Kettle Falls Athletic Director, Brian Golphenee). Kettle Falls High absorbed a second straight lopsided, season-opening loss to the Pioneers last Friday night, falling 49-15 in Okanogan County. Omak, behind the running of 5-9, 216-pound bowling ball on wheels, Dylan Green, put up 49 points in the first three quarters to overpower the Bulldogs, who were able to move the ball effectively against a larger school with a roster of 20 seniors.
