The Fish slips away from Waldport

The Fish was on the hook, but the Irish couldn’t reel it in. For three sets the Waldport volleyball team battled against Toledo for the right to keep the fish. In the first and third sets, the Irish had leads of 19-15 and 20-14. But in the end, those leads wouldn’t last. The Boomers would rally to win each set and sweep the Irish in straight sets, and, perhaps just as important, keep The Fish in Toledo for at least another season. “Our girls have a ton of grit, they are able to dig down deep and find it within themselves to win the day and that’s what they did today,” said Toledo head coach Crystal Taylor. “That second set is what I was really hoping for each time. Waldport is nobody to yawn at; they have some really good girls and they play well with each other. I’m proud of my girls, I’m proud of their girls.”

It’s now or never for Newport

A postseason berth for the two-time defending state champion Newport boys soccer team could be decided with how its final three games play out. The Cubs entered the week with three games left in the regular season. A matchup with one of the state title favorites — Woodburn, then closing with two final games at home against Sweet Home and Philomath. Needing two wins to boost its playoff resume, after facing Woodburn (two-time defending 5A state champs which beat Newport on its home turf earlier this fall), Newport will get a second shot at Philomath and will then face a Sweet Home team that hasn’t won a match all season.

Round Up: Tigers end 402 day streak

LINCOLN COUNTY — After starting the season off with 12 consecutive losses, the Tigers broke that streak with a 3-1 win over Clatskanie on Thursday, Oct. 4. The win puts an end to a 29-game losing streak that extended all the way back to Aug. 28 of 2017. The Tigers would win 25-21 in the first set, dominate the second set 25-11, suffer a setback in the third and fall 25-19 before putting the final nail in the coffin with a 25-20 win in the fourth set. “I wish we’d had more wins earlier in the season,” said head coach Kelsey Hart. “It was great for our first win to be at home with all the support we had. The girls felt like rock stars.” Going 402 days between wins, the Tigers would only have to wait two days for the next win. At the Western Christian Tourney, Taft would come away with a second place finish. The Tigers swept both City Christian and Chemawa in pool play before suffering a narrow loss to Western Mennonite. It wouldn’t be the first time for the Pioneers and the Tigers. In the championship bracket, the No. 4 seed Tigers rallied to win the final two sets to upset the No. 1 seeded Pioneers to advance to the championship match. The Tigers would end up losing to Westside Christian both sets 25-13, despite coming up short in the tournament, it was a successful week for Taft volleyball.

Cubs football moves to 6-0 with 13-12 win over Stayton

Not a halftime deficit, poor weather conditions or lack of a passing game could stop the Newport football team from keeping its perfect record intact.

This feels amazing.”

    Column: The Cubs lost, so now what?

    Newport’s perfect season came to an end against Cascade. It was six wins in six games but a sputtering offense, special team miscues and not enough stops on defense could help the Cubs keep its undefeated season alive entering the final game of the season. But really, does it even matter? In short, not really. But only if Newport wins on Friday.
