Bearcats, Bobcats to play at home Saturday

A rare football-futbol doubleheader is planned Saturday, with both semi-pro football and high school soccer scheduled at Aberdeen’s Stewart Field.

The Grays Harbor Bearcats will host the Kitsap Bears in a Pacific Football League contest scheduled for 1 p.m. The injury-riddled Bearcats are coming off their lone loss of the season last week, to the Springfield Buzzards.

The Bears edged out Southern Oregon Renegades, 15-13, last Saturday.

The earlier starting time for the Bearcat game is to avoid conflict with Aberdeen High School’s opening game in the District IV 2A Soccer Tournament. The Bobcats will entertain Evergreen 2A Conference rival Chehalis in a 7 p.m. contest.

Cats to visit Ridgefield in baseball

Aberdeen will visit Ridgefield in the opening round of the District IV Class 2A baseball tournament Tuesday, AHS athletic director Ken Ashlock said. The first pitch is scheduled for 4:30 p.m.

The game will be played at View Ridge Middle School in Ridgefield instead of at the high school. View Ridge is located at 510 Pioneer Street, close to the downtown area.

Timbers, Revolution tie it up

The Portland Timbers and New England Revolution played out a 0-0 draw at JELD-WEN Field on Thursday, continuing trends for both teams.

The result extends Portland’s unbeaten streak to seven games, although the Timbers will be a bit disappointed about failing to take all three points at home.

Meanwhile, New England has earned five points from its last three matches.

Darlington Nagbe had two chances to put the home side ahead, but the first was hit straight at New England goalkeeper Bobby Shuttleworth after Nagbe was played through on goal by Diego Chara.

Nagbe’s second effort was smashed inches over the crossbar from 20 yards.

It was the final opportunity for either side, and the Revs will be happy to leave with a point, while Portland will be wondering how it didn’t take all three.
