Back on January 15, the Marshfield Pirates held the Brookings-Harbor Lady Bruins to their lowest offensive output of the season in a 35-28 Brookings-Harbor victory.

What a difference a few weeks makes.

The Lady Bruins used a 14-0 run to open the second quarter en route to a 54-34 drubbing over Marshfield, Friday evening at Brookings-Harbor High School.


Marshfield defense shuts down Bruins

Bruin Trevor Johnson is called for a charge against Pirate Justin Cooper.

The Marshfield Pirates didn’t become the state’s top-ranked team in the 4A section by accident. 

The Pirates earned the No. 1 spot by playing active, physical defense -— pressuring every ball handler and challenging every shot, regardless of where it is on the court.

The Pirates stifling defense was on full display on Friday as Marshfield downed Brookings-Harbor, 60-28, at Brookings-Harbor High School.

Pacific herring coming soon; steelhead excellent

Donna Emfinger from Grants Pass decided to fish the Chetco last week and caught this nice hatchery winter steelhead while plunking a pearl pink Spin-N-Glo with white wings at Social Security Bar.

Be on the lookout for Pacific herring. The lingcod-killing baitfish are expected to make their annual pilgrimage to Crescent City harbor sometime this month, and if Mother Nature has anything to say about it, they will be arriving en masse any time soon.

“It’s been kind of hit and miss right now, but the bulk of the run hasn’t arrived yet,” said Jeff from Englund Marine Supply in Crescent City on Thursday.

According to Jeff, the herring that spawn in Crescent City Harbor every year could arrive in two hours, two days or two weeks -— but arrive they will!
