Defense dominates in Bruins wins

With Friday's win over Douglas, the Lady Bruins are alone in first place in the Far West League.

Friday’s Brookings-Harbor High School basketball games against the Douglas Trojans at Douglas High School capped an incredible week for Bruins and Lady Bruins basketball. 

With both teams winning in convincing fashion on Friday, the Bruins and Lady Bruins are firmly in the Far West League playoff picture.


Rockfish identification: a morphology lesson

These two photographs clearly show differences between blacks and blue rockfish.

Sometimes I feel like I’m a corrupt version of an old Jeff Foxworthy joke — If you live in Oregon and your passion is telling the difference between different species of rockfish, you might be a.morphologist?

The fact of the matter is, if you live in Oregon and you love fishing for rockfish, you better be married to the genus Sebastes — or until very expensive ticket do you part. And in this day and age, that makes every rockfisherman by default, a morphologist.

This year, ODFW implemented a few new rockfishing rules. Within your seven rockfish daily limit, only three may be blue rockfish.

When Brookings resident Nathan Dodgen, who had Down Syndrome, passed away in November of 2011 due to an infection of the brain, the loss sent shockwaves throughout the community. 

Those who knew “Cap’n Nate” knew him as a smiling, enthusiastic young man who had an infectiously positive attitude toward life and a soul that touched anyone that knew him. 

“Anybody who knew Nathan knew he was happy and was everybody’s best friend. He loved new challenges and always had a plan to do something,” said Nathan’s father, Patrick W. Dodgen.

For Brookings-Harbor High School basketball fans, Tuesday night was one to remember.

Facing South Umpqua, the Bruins won a thrilling upset victory and by the end of the night the Lady Bruins were alone in first place.  


Panthers play back-to-back against Reedsport and Toledo

Gold Beach's Jalen Robison drives for a lay up during Saturday's game against 2nd ranked Toledo.

Back-to-back games are not uncommon in the NBA, but in Southern Oregon high school basketball, they are a rarity -— until now.

To accommodate Toledo High School, which would have had to drive six hours round trip to play Bandon on Friday then make another eight hour round-trip on Tuesday to play the Panthers, Gold Beach High School approved a schedule change to move Tuesday’s games against the Boomers to Saturday. This allowed Toledo to make just one round trip but meant that both teams would be playing games on Friday night and Saturday morning.

Lady Bruins unfazed by schedule change

The late scheduling change didn’t disrupt the Lady Bruins, as head coach Chris Schofield’s team cruised to a 57-40 win over the Marshfield Pirates on Friday.

A scheduling conflict at South Umpqua High School means that instead of playing Friday’s basketball games at home, the Bruins and Lady Bruins travelled to Coos Bay to play what will be the first of three consecutive road games.

It started with a conflict over a scheduling issue with the Far West League district wrestling meet, which was originally to be held at South Umpqua High School. Due to a scheduling error, the meet had to be moved to Marshfield High School on Feb. 13, the date the BHHS basketball teams were scheduled to play at Marshfield High School. To accommodate the change, home/away games between BHHS and Marshfield were swapped, with BHHS travelling to Marshfield Friday night and Marshfield coming to Brookings-Harbor High School on Feb. 13.

The scheduling change means BHHS will play three consecutive games on the road, but will have four of their last five league games at home.


Ocean, rivers kick out plethora of fish

Ron Savage from Grants Pass and a friend caught a variety of groundfish including rockfish, kelp greenling and lingcod while fishing out of the Port of Brookings Harbor on Thursday.

Warning! Objects in this fishing column may appear larger than they actually are.

I love the ocean and I always have since I started fishing in Oceanside, California at the tender age of 8. Part of the mystique about fishing the ocean is the variety of fish that you can haul up at any given moment. That aspect about fishing the ocean was exciting back in the Oceanside days and is just as thrilling in the Oregon years.

Last week, anglers caught a variety of bottom-grabbers while fishing out of the Port of Brookings Harbor. There were plenty of rockfish limits to go around, as well as lots of cabezon and lingcod. Of course at this moment in time, all cabezon must be released.


Panthers face tough league foes in only home meet

Gold Beach’s T.J. Lilly won both his matches in convincing fashion at Wednesday’s Mountain View Conference Duals meet at Gold Beach High School.

“It definitely wasn’t our best wrestling,” uttered Gold Beach assistant wrestling coach Kyle Johnston after the Panthers went 4-8 in head-to-head matches at Thursday’s Mountain View Conference Duals meet at Gold Beach High School. “We always try to get our guys pointing toward what they did wrong and get better. It’s just not the greatest wrestling we’ve had.”

Of their four wins, 126-pound senior T.J. Lilly earned two of them. Lilly dominated both Riddle’s Jakob Gunn and Reedsport’s Devin Lichte as he controlled both matches from the outset.
