Colville up next
in 395 rivalry
The Chewelah Cougars kicked off their football season Friday night on the road at Deer Park. The young Cougars were in the game early on, but were eventually overpowered by the bigger, more experienced Stags, 31-7.
The Cougars went into the game with only four starters returning from last yearâs team (Chewelah lost 17 seniorsâ12 of them starters off last seasonâs Northeast A League championship team).
At times that inexperience showed: five turnovers, six penalties and a little more than 100 yards of total offense all added up to a big learning experience for Chewelah.
âWe have got a lot to work to do, but itâs the first game and we got a lot of kids in to get some experience,â said head coach Jim Fisk, who added, âWeâre going to make mistakes, but we donât want to make the kind of mistakes that we made (against Deer Park).
