Chewelah comeback earns big win over hard-luck Kettle Falls

October 10, 2013

Kettle Falls’ Connor McKern picks up yardage against Chewelah in last Friday night’s entertaining Northeast A League football game at Kettle between the Bulldogs and Chewelah. KFHS led 12-0 before Chewelah scored a pair of second half touchdowns and tacked on an extra point to keep the Bulldogs winless.

Kettle can’t
hold late lead

The Chewelah Cougars broke into the win column last Friday night with a come from behind 13-12 victory over Northeast A League rival, Kettle Falls.
While the Cougars didn’t play their best game, they did enough on both sides of the ball to earn their first win of the season. That was good enough for head coach Jim Fisk, whose mostly inexperienced team has struggled this fall.
“I would have liked to see us play better, but I can’t complain,” Fisk said. “Offensively, we did what we had to do--that’s what counts.”
On offense, quarterback Blake Owens may have had something of a coming out party, throwing second half touchdown passes to Scott Stumpf and Mason Miller. Owens was 13 for 23 for 161 yards.
“Blake did well,” Fisk said. “He did what he needed to do to win the game.”

McKern has big night for Bulldogs

On defense, the Cougars did just enough to contain Kettle Falls’ senior running back and quarterback Connor McKern (119 yards on 25 carries and one touchdown).
“When we stopped up their Power I and they went to their Pistol and Option, we did a good job adjusting defensively to something they hadn’t shown before,” said Fisk.
