Wildcats 42, Indians 8
SOUTH BEND — Nate Krigbaum scored four times of plays of 55 yards or more as Ocosta trounced South Bend in a Pacific League game Friday night at Millam Field.
Krigbaum scored on scrimmage runs of 99 and 75 yards, went 55 yards on a screen pass from Kurt Bambauer and scored on a 79-yard punt return. He finished with 213 yards on only three scrimmage runs but had well over 300 yards of total offense.
He led a flurry of Wildcat big plays that also included Connor Maben’s 58-yard touchdown run and Alex Herrera’s 85-yard kickoff return.
Bambauer was perfect on six conversion kicks.
“We were able to control the edges,” Ocosta coach Mike Allton said. “We had a lot of speed and used it. We needed a game to break out and build some confidence and I believe we did that. But we had too many penalites and five turnovers that really hindered us.”
South Bend scored for the first time this season on Austin Lewis’ 50-yard pass to Dennis Johnson in the fourth quarter. Lewis ran in the conversion.
“This is going to sound stupid, but outside of the big plays, I thought we played pretty well defensively,” South Bend coach Tom Sanchez said.
Caleb Tackett and James Benn contributed 11 and six tackles, respectively, for Ocosta (1-2, 2-3).
Sanchez cited the defensive play of Dakota Halverson and Levi Hix.
South Bend (0-1, 0-4) hosts Raymond on Friday. Ocosta has picked up a game with Jewell, Ore., whom the Wildcats will host in an 8-man game on Friday.
Vikings 28, Trojans 12
PE ELL — Willapa Valley remained unbeaten by topping Pe Ell, 28-12, in a non-league football game Friday night at Pe Ell.
Details will be reported at a later date. The Vikings (5-0) host North Beach on Friday.
Loggers 55, Terriers 0
VANCOUVER — With seven players scoring touchdowns, Wishkah trounced State Deaf in a Coastal League game Thursday at Vancouver.
The Loggers (1-0, 4-1) swapped positions with regularity, shifting linemen into the backfield for ball-carrying duty. Several of their usual customary linemen scored touchdowns.
“We just let kids play all over the place,” Wishkah coach Brad Taylor Sr. said. “We wanted to be good sports, we didn’t want to run the score up. Some of the linemen got to pack the ball. The kids had a lot of fun.”
Dillon Mitchell was the lone Logger to score twice, on a 14-yard pass from Jace Anderson and a 2-yard run.
Other Wishkah touchdowns came on Luke Stevens’ 20-yard run, Keigan Gardiner’s 37-yard pass to Ethen Arnold, Austin Barber’s 4-yard run, Bo Barber’s 41-yard run, Trey Berge’s 23-yard run and Jacob Gardiner’s 24-yard run.
The Loggers even attempted to kick conversions, a rarity in 8-man football. Keigan Gardiner was successful on three of those tries. Wishkah also mustered a safety in the first quarter.
Stevens led Wishkah defenders with nine tackles. Berge added six tackles and an interception, while Arnold and Chris Thein contributed six stops apiece.
The Loggers host Lake Quinault on Friday at Stewart Field.
Aberdeen 4, Chehalis 2
After dropping a hard-fought No. 1 singles match, Aberdeen’s boys tennis squad took the rest of the singles slate and two of three doubles contests to seal a 4-2 win over Chehalis on Friday.
Aberdeen’s Dillon Rowe fell in three sets after taking the first and dropping the second in a tiebreaker to Chehalis’ Kenny Saari. In No. 2 singles, Cole Edwards remained undefeated with a straight-set shutout win. Aberdeen’s Dominic Salick gave away just one game in his straight-set victory.
Aberdeen coach Andy Duffy praised his No. 1 doubles team of Warren Pratt and Reilly Fairchild, who battled through a tiebreaker in their initial frame en route to a straight-set victory.
“They are playing head and shoulders above the others right now,” Duffy said.
Eddy Yee and John Solan fell to the Chehalis duo of Jacob Schneider and Daniel Blomdahl in the No. 2 slot, with Aberdeen’s Charlie Dietrich and Devan Harke delivering the Bobcat victory with their 6-4, 7-5, win to round out doubles play.
The Bobcats (6-4) travel to Capital on Monday.

Bobcats lose in three
OLYMPIA — Capital grabbed the momentum to down Aberdeen, 25-6, 25-14, 25-13, in Evergreen 2A Conference play Friday at Olympia.
Heather Dublanko had six kills for the Bobcats (3-2, 3-4).
“We didn’t come out strong,” said Bobcat coach Wilma Weber. “We had difficulty passing. On defense, we didn’t cover their strong hitters. We plan to rebound for next week.”
The Cougars won the junior varsity match, 25-6, 25-11. Capital also won the C squad, 25-9, 25-10.
The Bobcats will host Black Hills on Tuesday.
