Bruins beat Cubs, 3-1, to advance

Bruin Chris Hart, center, leaps for a header against Newport's Marvin Fernandez.

This time, they would not falter.

In a game that began to resemble last season’s heartbreaking play-in round loss, the Brookings-Harbor Bruins soccer team once again found themselves tied, late in the game, against the Newport Cubs.

Unlike last year’s game, which saw Newport score three unanswered goals in a 3-2 overtime win, it was the Bruins that made the plays down the stretch to win, 3-2, and earn a berth in the OSAA 4A State Playoffs.


Homecoming heartbreak for Panthers

The Gold Beach Panthers football team had been playing with fire all night. Eventually, they got burned.

 Tied with the visiting Bandon Tigers on Gold Beach’s homecoming night, the Panthers managed to keep the score at 8-8 even though they had committed three turnovers.


Chetco expected to fully open Nov. 4

Ray and Dorris Smith from White City crabbed last week at the Port of Brookings Harborís crab dock and did quite well on large red rock crab. The crabbing is expected to still be fair to good this week.

OK, so right now it looks like a trickle.  Some people, including myself have never seen water in the Chetco River this low, and I’ve been here more than 34 years if that counts for anything.

But salmon are the most tenacious animals I’ve ever encountered.  They spawn (breed) only one time in their life, and then they die.  So it comes as no surprise to me that Chinook have been found at least as high as the Ice Box Hole.

But I digress.


Championship hopes begin against Junction City

At 2 p.m. Saturday at Brookings-Harbor High School, the Lady Bruins soccer team, ranked 12th in the latest 4A rankings, begins their playoff season with a play-in round game against the 21st ranked Junction City Tigers, who finished third in the Sky-Em league.


Bruins hope to place at state finals on Saturday

After their upset victory at the Far West District Championships last Saturday, the Brookings-Harbor Bruins boys cross-country team enter today’s OSAA 4A State Championship Meet at Lane Community College in Eugene with everything to gain and nothing to lose.

With just two seniors, the young Bruins were not expected to make it to the state finals, let alone with the Far West League. Their captain, Far West League champion Chris Burton, had some words of wisdom for his team during a recent interview. 

“These guys should just be looking for experience because they will probably be back next year,” said Burton, a senior entering his third consecutive state meet.

It was a result that sent shock waves throughout the cross-country community.

Brookings-Harbor Bruins — FWL boys team champion.

For the first time since they won back-to-back league titles in 2003 and 2004, the Bruins are Far West League champions.

How did this happen?
