Sports Briefs Oct. 15, 2014


Streak broken: Bruins beat Douglas

Christian Hooper scored three touchdowns in leading the Bruins to a 54-6 victory, snapping a 17-game losing streak.

Seventeen games.

That’s what was staring the Brookings-Harbor High School football team in the face. A 17-game losing streak dating back to late in the 2012 season, and they wanted to end it.

The Bruins erased a full season-and-a-half of futility with a complete and dominant 54-6 victory over the Douglas Trojans Friday night at Douglas High School.


Second half adjustments lead Panthers to victory

The score doesn’t always tell the full story. 

For the first half of Friday’s football game the Gold Beach Panthers were locked in an 8-6 defensive battle against a well coached and prepared Reedsport Braves football team.

As is typical of good football teams, the Panthers made the proper second half adjustments and overcame turnovers en route to a 30-6 victory over the Braves at Reedsport High School.

Sometimes, even if you lose, you still win.

That was the case for the Gold Beach Panthers volleyball team as they split a pair of games this week, but came out winners, literally and figuratively, on both occasions.


Soccer teams keeping pace

BHHS’ Luka Frazier makes a play during the Lady Bruins 11-0 victory over the South Umpqua Lancers on Thursday.

The Brookings-Harbor High School soccer programs have enjoyed great success this season. Bruins head coach Gabe Anaya and Lady Bruins head coach Fernando Villa have guided their young, talented teams to the upper echelon of the Far West League and potential playoff births. 

Both teams were in action at South Umpqua on Thursday to take on the Lancers.

The Brookings-Harbor High School volleyball team lost in four sets to the Douglas Trojans, 25-18, 24-20, 24-26 and 25-16 in their most impressive performance of the season Thursday at BHHS.


Ocean salmon season closes Sunday

Gary Parsons of Brookings whacked this 30-pound Chinook in the ocean on Wednesday while trolling an anchovy outside the Port of Brookings Harbor.

The last day of the Chetco Ocean Chinook Terminal Area Fishery that takes place within 3 miles of shore and within the boundaries from Twin Rocks to the Oregon/California border closes one hour after sundown tomorrow (Sunday, Oct. 12).

If I had to describe how the fishing was this season, I would say it was great on some days — poor on others. There may have been two or three days in a row where anglers couldn’t get a scratched baitfish, then all of a sudden all heck would break loose for one or two days in a row, and fishermen couldn’t keep the fish off their hooks.


Bruins dominate Red Devils

BHHS forward Tyrah Baron is beaten to a loose ball by Coquille goalkeeper Katie Davidson in the Lady Bruins 5-0 win on Tuesday.

The Brookings-Harbor High School Bruins and Lady Bruins soccer teams recorded shutout victories over the Coquille Red Devils on Tuesday to keep pace for the top spot in the Far West League standings.


Local man has a knack for aces

Avid golfer Mike Cornelius displays two golf balls he hit for aces recently at Salmon Run golf course.

To hit a hole-in-one a golfer needs a mixture of skill and luck. Harbor resident and avid golfer Mike Cornelius has combined both elements to achieve the rare feat three times, including twice in a recent 10 day span.
