Little things catch up to Lady Bruins in loss to Lancers

Lady Bruin right fielder Jessica Yock makes a catch as centerfielder Kaitlin Saphiloff backs up the play. BHHS lost the game, 2-1, to the South Umpqua Lancers, who now lead the Lady Bruins by 2.5 games in the Far West League.

In close games, the little things are magnified. A misplayed ball here, a few more inches on a line drive there. When two evenly matched teams have to claw and scratch their way to every hit, every out and every run; it’s the little things that are the difference between a win and a loss. 

The Brookings-Harbor High School softball team suffered a hard fought 2-1 loss to the league-leading South Umpqua Lancers on Tuesday at BHHS, and it was the little things that were their undoing.

Lady Bruins tally walk-off win over Siuslaw at Bud Cross Park

BHHS' Jessica Yock bats against Siuslaw at Bud Cross Park last Tuesday.

Facing a pitcher in Siuslaw’s Heidi Jones who had them off-balance and out of sorts the Lady Bruins found themselves in one of those “character revealing” games.

Dodd’s cannon preserves Bruin win, extends win streak to 7 games

Brookings-Harbor High School right fielder Chandler Dodd wasn’t having a great game and he knew it. 

Dodd, who was 0-2 at the plate with two strikeouts, realized that he may have a chance to impact the game eventhough his bat fell silent. 

His mental toughness was rewarded when, with the tying run on third base, the winning run on first base nobody out in the seventh inning, Dodd caught a line drive off the bat of Kenneth Thrall and uncorked a strike home to gun down Siuslaw’s Brad Snow, preseving the Bruins’ 3-2 lead and sending the Bruin dugout into a frenzy.


Local lakes stocked with trout

Natasha, Tyler and Leiya Ravencroft, as well Jordan Thomas from Grants Pass made the royal score on jumbo Dungeness crab plus a few nice lings to boot while fishing out of the Port of Brookings Harbor on Sunday.

If the weather’s blowing whitecaps on the ocean this week, or if the springer fishing on the Lower Rogue is a little on the slow-ish side, you might consider taking a ride on the backwards time machine and slipping through one of those cool portals that takes you back to your original fishing roots and doing a little trout fishing from the bank or from a boat.

It’s almost a guarantee that reliving your days of yore will rejuvenate you in ways you completely forgot about. In addition, if you happen to have some kids of your own, or are willing to mentor a few of your kids’ friends, it’s a given that you’ll introduce them to some very special first experiences that could actually get them hooked on the thrill of catching hatchery rainbow trout.
