BOOMING BACK TO THE QUARTERFINALS: Chewelah muscles Tonasket 36-7 to advance to the State 2B Quarterfinals for the second year in a row…
Kaden Krouse gained 196 yards and scored twice while a downright brutal Chewelah defense barricaded all entrances to the endzone last Friday night when the Cougars defeated the visiting Tonasket Tigers 36-7 in the opening round of the 2019 2B Gridiron Classic Football Tournament.
The fourth-ranked Cougars will now face the fifth-ranked Adna Pirates this Saturday, November 23 at 1 p.m. at Gonzaga Prep in Spokane in the state quarterfinals.
“This is going to be a dogfight,” predicted Coach Cameron Gump. “Adna is a lot like us. They run a lot of the same plays that we do. They run and throw the ball with equal ability. So, we have to be physical like we were against Tonasket, and we have to play with the same intensity. There is no doubt that both teams are going to put points on the scoreboard. The winner will be the one that wants it more.” More
