CHS football falls on Homecoming, and yesterday’s college gridiron wrap…..

Good Sunday morning. Football on the docket this morning, and we start with a disappointing Homecoming game for Cedarcrest’s squad, as their offense was held to just 99 total yards in a 33-0 loss to Sehome of Bellingham this past Friday night dropping their record to 3-3 on the season, 1-2 in the Northwest District’s Lake Division.

Fredrick Reid led CHS on the ground, with eight carries for 30 yards and Tyler Gray had 11 rushes for 27 yards. Payton Burpee caught one pass for 31 yards and that allowed him to lead the receiving corps for the Red Wolves. QB Gavin McDermott was 3-12 for 42 yards and an interception for Cedarcrest in the game.

The defense stayed busy with Reid and Cody Schultz each having a dozen tackles, one each for loss. CHS recorded 54 tackles in the contest.

Cedarcrest heads north to Blaine this coming week to meet the Borderites. Game time is 7:00 p.m. at Blaine High School.

Yesterday’s college action:

Pacific Lutheran 30, Pacific-OR 23: PLU rallied from an early deficit to score the home Northwest Conference (NCAA Division III win) at home in Puyallup, and aiding the effort was a Valleyite. Sophomore Alex Rendon, he of North Bend and a 2017 Mount Si HS grad, caught just one pass for seven yards in the contest, but that one catch proved worthwhile, as it went for a touchdown just before halftime for the Lutes.

Eastern Washington 55, Southern Utah 17: The Eagles made short work of their Big Sky rivals at home in a nationally-televised contest yesterday in Cheney (Root Sports’ regional broadcast was picked up nationally by both Dish Network and DirecTV and placed on their services’ information channels). Junior Chris Schlicting, from North Bend and a 2015 MSHS’er, started at right tackle for the Eagles in the contest.

Central Washington 45, Azusa Pacific 31: The Wildcats held off the Cougars in the shootout down in Azusa, CA, last night. North Bend’s Jack Weidenbach played for Central in the game with no stats of note reported; he is a redshirt freshman and 2017 Mount Si HS grad.

Berry (GA) 44, Sewanee 3: Berry handled their business at home in Georgia last night to move to 6-0 on the season. Senior Colby Weldon, from North Bend and a 2014 MSHS grad, played in the contest for the Vikings with no stats of note reported.

Gustavus Adolphus 27, Concordia (MN) 14: Gustavus held a 27-0 halftime lead on the Cobbers, who could not recover in the second half and fell on the road in St. Peter, MN. Both Valleyites on Concordia played in the game. Freshman Collin Fleisch made his college debut on the offensive line for the Cobbers; he is from Fall City and a June MSHS grad. Senior Andrew Thompson, from North Bend, had 18 tackles – two solos – and one for loss for Concordia; he is a 2015 MSHS grad.

Linfield 59, Willamette 0: The Wildcats won the Willamette Valley rivalry game at home in McMinnville, OR, over the visiting Bearcats. Freshman Max Bonda, from Snoqualmie and a 2017 MSHS’er, saw action for Linfield in the contest with no stats of note reported.

Pomona-Pitzer 34, LaVerne 7: Pomona handled LaVerne with ease on the road in southern California last night. Lineman Michael Collins, from North Bend and a June grad from MSHS, saw action for the Sagehens in the contest last night. He is a freshman this fall.
