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. The Cubs scored late in the third quarter to take a 13-12 lead and held on to win their sixth game in a row over Stayton. “It feels amazing,” said senior running back/linebacker Addison Galen who finished with 130 yards and a touchdown. “Going 6-0, coming back after being down at halftime, it was huge. This feels amazing.”

Newport CC ready to kick it into overdrive

Expect the times for the Newport cross country team to improve. With the first part of the season filled with adventure courses — like the Ultimook Race or Newport Equinox Beach Run — where speed is the afterthought and endurance is the key. But now, with the Oregon West Conference Champions just three weeks away, the focus has shifted to speed and running faster courses. And that’s exactly what happened at the Nike Portland XC Challenge; six of the seven boys runners either had a personal record or season record at that race. The Cubs ran in the JV Championships — over 100 teams from the western United State competed — to avoid having to wake up at 3 a.m. on Saturday to make the 8 a.m. race start time.

Cub defense ready for final challenge

While the Newport football team was watching film of its most recent victory on Sunday, defensive coordinator Jeff Taylor had something to say to his players. It wasn’t a berating message or a “win one for the Gipper” speech. It was an honest conversation about where the season has taken them and the two roads that the team can take in the final three weeks of the season. “I told them that if they came out like they did last week and prepare like we did last week we aren’t going to have the same result,” Taylor said. “Against a better team, the meat of our schedule, the season might not turn out the way we want it.”

    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.

    FROM THE WHEELHOUSE: Army Corps metric doesn’t reflect economic reality

    Federal bureaucracy has left Depoe Bay dangling on the hook. The six-acre bay is gathering so much silt that boats must wait for high tide to reach a key fueling dock, and harbor authorities say it’s only a matter of time before the waterway becomes unusable to the charter and sport fishing fleet, which are a mainstay of the city’s economy.
