TOLEDO — Mikayla Rutherford had a good feeling going into Toledo’s match against Bandon on Tuesday, Oct. 17. Even though it was Senior Night, and the final time Rutherford — a senior captain — would suit up for a home game for the Boomer Volleyball team, she was confident her team would rise to the occasion. “I came in actually feeling really good,” Rutherford said. “Some games I come in like, ‘oh geez, we’re going to lose this one,’ and I came into this one knowing we were going to win.”

Cubs take care of Cascade

Maybe it was the 7:45 p.m. kickoff. Or perhaps it was having to wait for Cascade to get out of traffic on Highway 20. But it was a slow start for the No. 8 Newport boys soccer team on Tuesday, Oct. 17 The Cubs fell behind 1-0 early in the first half after a near-perfect free kick from Cascade in the top corner. Twenty minutes into the game, the Cubs would walk up — scoring three goals in the first half, then four in the second half to win 7-1. “I felt like we finished strong in the first half because we were finishing our opportunities,” said head coach Ollie Richardson. “Those first 20 minutes we should’ve easily had two or three goals. We started slow, but once we got going, I felt things were starting to go in our direction.”

Philomath outlasts Cubs

Philomath had put a wallop on the Newport soccer team when they first met in late September — the Warriors had beaten the Cubs 10-0. On Wednesday, Oct. 11, the Cubs went out to prove that they were a better than the team that showed up on a rainy day in Philomath three weeks ago. “The game that we played at Philomath a few weeks ago was in no way a reflection on how this team plays,” said Head Coach Jon Allan. “They’ve shown over the course of the season that they are much, much better than that. It was good to see them come out with much more guts and determination and speed.”

After four on the road, Warriors’ home game cancelled

SILETZ — Since Sept. 8, the Siletz Valley Warriors have been waiting to return home to play in front of their hometown crowd. After four straight games against on the road and traveling an average of 131 miles for those games, playing at home will have to wait another week. Alsea High School doesn’t have enough players to field a team. “That’s a long stretch of road games,” said Head Coach Reggie Butler Jr. “Being on the road that much starts to wear on you. I think it’s good for us to regroup, I guess. The past two weeks we have been struggling.”
