Lesser more than enough to thwart Republic

SR Story | PASCO – It started back in August. Mike Olson said he and his players saw some good things and set some pretty lofty goals for this season. Admittedly, Olson says it’s been a long ride, but one that is not yet complete. Olson and his …

Broncos’ winning streak finished

SR Story | MOSES LAKE – There’s some dispute whether the Okanogan Bulldogs are 13-0 or 13-1 headed into Friday’s State 2B championship game. There’s little dispute, however, that the Bulldogs belong in that title game against Napavine (12-0) at the Tacoma Dome.

Wildcats stumble in State 3A semifinals

SR Story | It’s a good thing Mt. Spokane scored the game’s first touchdown. Because six touchdowns and 421 yards later, the Eastside Catholic Crusaders were on their way to an easy 42-24 win over the Wildcats in a State 3A football semifinal Saturday afternoon at Joe Albi …

Colville, Cascade run games collide

SR Story | When Colville football coach Randy Cornwell saw the final score of the Cascade-Zillah quarterfinal, he knew exactly what type of opponent his team would face in the semifinals. Cascade handed Zillah its first loss, shutting down the Leopards 21-7 last week. That’s the same Zillah …

Mt. Spokane has big task vs. Eastside Catholic

SR Story | For Terry Cloer to say that Eastside Catholic is the best team that his Mt. Spokane football team has played to date might be stating the obvious. After all, this is the State 3A semifinals and there are no slouches left, including the Wildcats.

Republic takes on Liberty Christian

SR Story | It’s the newbie against the seasoned team when Republic takes on Liberty Christian in a State 1B football semifinal today. The Tigers (11-1) travel to Pasco to face the No. 1-ranked Patriots (11-0) at Edgar Brown Stadium. Kickoff is at 4.

LRS has powerful foe in Okanogan

SR Story | Greg Whitmore would never say this is where his team expected to be at this point in November. Not after losing much to graduation off a team that captured a second straight State 2B football championship.

Against odds, Chicago school aims for championship

SR Story | CHICAGO – Unlike some resource-rich powerhouses that typically vie for Illinois’ high school football championships, the Phillips Academy Wildcats must lug their helmets and pads nearly a mile to a South Side Chicago city park to practice. They have no field of their own. A …

Mt. Spokane tops Shadle Park

SR Story | Brett Rypien broke a big career record Saturday afternoon, but the Mt. Spokane Wildcats set a team record and gained more time for their football season. The Wildcats rushed for 260 yards and scored the final 28 points of the game to dispatch Rypien’s Shadle …

Chiawana dismantles G-Prep

SR Story | PASCO – It’s a bad thing when you see the back of a player’s uniform most of the game – especially if said jersey is worn by a running back. Just ask the Gonzaga Prep Bullpups.

Patriots roll into State 1B semis

SR Story | PASCO – John Lesser proved to be more for the Liberty Christian football team Saturday. And because of that the Patriots continue their quest to capture a second State 1B championship in three years.
