Chewelah head coach Jim Fisk summed up the game pretty succinctly.
â€śTheyâ€™ve got a good ball club, but we didnâ€™t play exceptionally well and until we stop making so many mistakes, itâ€™s going to be tough,â€ť Fisk said.
Colville High (4-0, 2-0) got its most complete performance of the season on both sides of the ball in a 52-0 mauling of host Riverside at Chattaroy last Friday night.
