Colville to State!

December 1, 2014

This one had “Upset Special” written all over it. But Colville’s formidable defense turned in its biggest stop in a long, but memorable season and the Indians (12-0) moved into the State 1A championship game with a 20-14 semifinal win over upstart Cascade of Leavenworth last Saturday afternoon in frigid Albi Stadium (Spokane). Colville, ranked no. 1 or no. 2 depending on whether it’s a MaxPreps poll or state coaches poll, will oppose formidable and top-ranked Cascade Christian (12-0) in the Tacoma Dome (see related story) on Saturday for the Class 1A championship. Game time is 10 a.m.

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.

It’s déjà vu all over again

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).

Cornwell, ‘Carp’ Coaches of the Year for Indians

Colville High (9-0) dominated this year’s Northeast A League All-League selections that were announced on Monday.
The second-ranked Indians, who drew a first round bye this week and won’t know their first state playoff opponent until likely at least Nov. 8 or 9, got considerable respect from fellow NEA coaches during the selection process.
As they should have.

Colville wins NEA title with rout of Lakeside

November 5, 2014

Indians idle
until next week

Colville High (9-0), mostly untested to date this fall, clinched the outright Northeast A League football championship last Friday night by bull-rushing outclassed Lakeside, 46-14.
The Indians were led by NEA Offensive MVP, Colton Vining. The 5-7, 175-pound senior rushed for a career high 257 yards (27 carries) and scored four touchdowns.
The Indians dominated up front from the outset and managed to rush for a season high 438 yards. The previous high was 379 yards on the ground against Medical Lake.

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.

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.
