September 16, 2014

Cougs on the road at Lakeside

For the second straight week, Jenkins High played a thriller on the football field. But unlike the previous week when Chewelah dropped a heartbreaker to Priest River to open the season, the Cougars downed Warden, 24-21.
Over the previous week, head coach Jim Fisk and his staff worked to correct the mistakes Chewelah made in that opener against Priest River. The hard work paid off with an improved defense and a solid passing game.

Angelo Rivera rushed for 255 yards on 16 carries and scored four touchdowns for Republic in Coulee City. Quarterback Aaron Fritts added a pair of passing touchdowns and two TDs on the ground.
