Gold Beach vs. Regis: Rivalry renewed

Gold Beach running back and Sunset Conference co-offensive MVP J.R. Keeler is one of the Panthers' key players heading into their quarterfinal match-up against Regis on Saturday.

At 2 p.m. this Saturday at Jay Johnson Stadium in Gold Beach, a yellow school bus from Stayton, Oregon, a town from the suburbs of Salem, will roll into the parking lot at Gold Beach High School.

On board will be a team the Panthers have become quite accustomed to meeting  this time of year -— the Regis Rams. 

The two teams have a history dating back to 2003. That’s when the Tri-River League Rams made their first foray into Gold Beach, nabbing an initial win over GBHS. Back then both schools were in the 3A section. Now, seven epic battles later and a drop  into the 2A class, both teams will be at it again this weekend in the Oregon State Athletic Association 2A football quarterfinals with fourth-ranked Gold Beach hosting fifth-ranked Regis on the Panthers home field at Jay Johnson Memorial Stadium.


Panthers dominate league awards

Gold Beach High School running back J.R. Keeler and linebacker Mauricio Boydston won Most Valuable Player awards and first-year head coach Justin Storns was named Coach of the Year as the Panthers football team garnered 18 Sunset Conference all-league awards.

The Panthers, who won the league championship with a 5-0 league record (10-0 overall), had 10 players named to the first team all-league squad and four players earned second team nods.


High water is for plunkers and plug pullers

The author holds a 15-pound Chinook caught on a bobber-and-sand shrimp cocktail on the Chetco River last Tuesday.

With the Chetco River lowering to 850 cubic feet per second last week, anglers deploying bobbers-and-eggs or bobbers-and-sand shrimp cocktails brought home the majority of the salmon. A small percentage of anglers who pulled plugs in the faster water were also successful at hammering the Chinook.

The November hawg run is far from being over. When a friend and I decided to call it a day at 3 p.m. on Tuesday, bright salmon were rolling all over the place, and I could clearly see schools of new, chrome-bright Chinook moving underwater and shooting upriver as fast as they could swim.

Now that rain has fallen in the local vicinity, anglers should have ample opportunities to knock the dickens out of these fish by plunking Spin-N-Glos from the bank, and later, pulling or back-trolling plugs.


Panthers prey on Warriors, 30-0

The Gold Beach Panthers moved one step closer to their goal of winning a 2A State Championship on Saturday, as they benefitted from running back Colton Pearson’s 143 yards and three touchdowns en route to a 30-0 drubbing over the visiting Oakridge Warriors.

“Our kids played great. We knew we could run against them. With our offense teams can only take away so much and we’ve got a couple of real quick tailbacks,” said Panther head coach Justin Storns, commenting on his team’s various offensive weapons.


Worthey, Anaya are MVPs of Far West League

Lady Bruins sophomore forward Siena Worthey was voted the Far West League MVP for the 2014 season.

The results are in and Far West League coaches agree — Brookings-Harbor High School soccer players Siena Worthey and Alex Anaya are MVPs.

Both BHHS soccer stars were voted as MVPs of the Far West League, with Anaya garnering a co-MVP nod with North Bend’s Ian Bream while Worthey won the trophy outright.


Chetco low water — use bobber

Ward Ockenden and Al Hungerford from Grants Pass fished with guide Andy Martin of Wild Rivers Fishing last week to catch these strapping Chinook.

It’s that time of the year — when the November hawgs start entering the Chetco River, and that means that Chinook averaging between 20 and 30 pounds will be coming to the fish cleaning station with regularity, just like they did last week!

Luckily, November Chinook don’t enter the river all at once. They tend to cross the opening of the jetty jaws in increments over a period of 3 to 4 weeks. And since these fish will be interspersed throughout the river for the entire month, chrome-bright kings can be caught on any given Sunday.

Knowing how to fish for these strapping Chinook will depend on the speed of the river current.
