Mustangs gut out win over THS
DEARY — The Deary Mustangs regained possession by stopping a fourth-and-long play with 1:17 remaining and ran out the clock Friday night to edge Timberline 30-28 in a Whitepine League Division II opener for both prep football teams.
“The defense really dug in there at the very end and got some crucial stops,” said Deary coach Jason Hanson, whose team is now 1-4 overall and 1-0 in league.
Brayden Stapleton threw two touchdown passes — both to Skyler Frazier — and made three interceptions for the Mustangs. Preston Johnson ran for a touchdown and a pair of two-point conversions, while Wyatt Lloyd provided the final Deary TD with a 50-yard rush.
“It was a tough game,” Hanson said. “Tip my hat to Timberline; they’ve got a great group of kids, great coach, and they fought really hard. Gave us a great game.”

Kendrick 52, Lewis Co. 0
KENDRICK — Freshman quarterback Jagger Hewett passed for 180 yards in his first varsity start as injury-ridden Kendrick blanked Lewis County in the Tigers’ first Whitepine League Division II game.
Chad Facey rushed for 95 yards and three touchdowns while Kolby Anderson added 79 yards and two scores to help offset the Tigers’ backfield losses.
“Super happy with the way Chad and Jagger stepped up at tailback and quarterback,” Kendrick coach Zane Hobart said. “They really played well.”
Matt Fletcher made six solo tackles to lead the KHS defense.
The Tigers (4-1, 1-0) were missing Cooper Hewett (hamstring), Chase Burke (sore ribs) and Alex Sneve (ankle). Hewett is probably two weeks away, but the others could be back sooner.

Prairie 44, Potlatch 0
COTTONWOOD — Owen Anderson and Cole Schlader had a hand in three touchdown plays apiece to lead the unbeaten Prairie Pirates in a shutout of Whitepine League Division I foe Potlatch.
Cole Martin completed a 21-yard run for another Pirate touchdown.
“Shout-out to our defense,” said Prairie coach Ryan Hasselstrom, whose team moved to 5-0 overall and 3-0 in league. “It was a heck of a game. Potlatch, they’re a good football team. Defensively, we gave up some first downs and some yardage, but when we needed to keep them out of the end zone, they did a great job.”
Hasselstrom cited lineman Dean Johnson as a defensive standout.

Colfax 39, LRS 13
RITZVILLE, Wash. — Boosted by Jacob Brown’s 206 yards rushing, Colfax rolled up a total of 503 yards in its blasting of Northeast 2B League foe Lind-Ritzville/Sprague.
Brown, coach Mike Morgan’s “go-to guy,” racked up three rushing touchdowns. Matthew Hockett contributed 84 and a score on the ground, all of that coming on a tone-setting, opening-series sweep run. Hockett also had 92 yards and a touchdown on two receptions.
The Bulldogs (4-1, 1-0 in league) got 107 yards and a score on a 4-for-6 passing from sophomore quarterback Damian Demler.
The Colfax defense logged three takeaways — Hockett nabbed an interception, and two fumbles were forced and recovered. The Bulldogs had nine tackles for loss.
“The defense did a nice job of shutting things down,” Morgan said. “We kept them out of the end zone; the offense grounded away and hit big passing plays when we needed to.”
Colfax now begins its “meat grinder” of a three-game league stretch, beginning with Liberty on Friday for homecoming.
