Coquille won the first game 15-12, and lost the second at 5-15. In a hard one-hour game, the Red Devils grappled with Scapoose, winning the first game 15-13.

Scapoose won the second game with 15 points over Coquille's five. Devils Kayla Schraeder and Josie Christiansen were outstanding freshmen players in this game, coach Suzanne Grami said. Closing out the day was a match with Molalla. Though the girls played their hearts out, they weren't able to win either game. With a score of 13-15 in the first game and 11-15 in the second, Coquille made Molalla work hard for their victory. Coquille finished the day third in their pole.

Devils scored six goals, the Pirates made two. The game started quick with Coquille getting down to busi- ness. After a long stall near the Pirate goal, Chance Hubbard nailed the ball into the net. For a short time, the Pirates gained control. As the Pirates tried to run the ball, Jeremy Heisler was responsible for stopping several plays, once with his head. The second goal was made by David Granger. This was fol- lowed by another goal, so only twenty minutes into the game, the Devils had scored three times. The half ended with the Pirates almost scoring. They tried again as the second half began. Quick work by Devil defense made the bali go high. Ball back in Devil hands, Mike Henderson started a good run, the team covering three quarters of the field. The final kick was too hard and went to the left. The Pirates started a good offense, but the run was stopped with teamwork by Devils Clint Wirebaugh and Jeremy Islet. As the Pirates tried again, deep in their own territory, the Devils sneaked the ball away. Quick reaction by Mike Henderson turned the ball around and almost made a goal. The kick was good, but the bali hit the upper bar of the goal. Larry Judd, who played all game with what looked like a slight limp, came off the field. His hamstring was pulled. "Every time I kick the ball, it RED DEVIL Harvey Gonzales steals the ball in mid-air. Jake sends streaks of pain down my leg," Judd said. He was taped up and retired for the night. Fifteen minutes into the sec- ond half, opportunity knocked on the Devil's door. As Devils and Pirates chased the ball to right side of the Pirate goal, a lucky kick aimed at the goal sailed over the head of Pirate defenders. The ball found no one to block entry into the goal. One more score for Coquille. The Pirates retaliated with their first goal of the night. Angry Devils yanked the bali over to the Pirates goalbox and Rory O'Conner almost kicked the ball in. As players converged on the ball in the next play, Devil Harvey Gonzales found himself directly under the bail. Jumping high, he head bunted the ball into the goal. Following a penalty kick that was chased out of the Pirate's goal, the Devils were able to return and sink the ball in for their next goal. With four minutes left in the game, the Pirates slithered through Devil defense and slammed in their second goal of the night. Devils tried another goal, but Pirates jumped in the fray, tapping the ball back into the Devil's horns. The game ended with the Devils still involved in attempt- ing another goal. The final score was the Devil's six goals against ,the Pirate's two points. • crossing of the ball. forwards and right able to center the ball bonus.

Football: Red Devils beat Rogue By JAKE JACOBS After three and one-half hours on the bus, the Red Devils arrived at Rogue River ready to rumble in the rain Friday. The weather played a major role in Coquille's 7-0 victory. On the Red Devils' first possession they turned it over on a fumble that led to a Chieftain's field goal attempt which was blocked. The offense had a hard time getting it together due, in large part, to the miser- able conditions. They fumbled the ball away the next two times they had it. The only spark was a 20-yard run by David Blomquist, but the defense stopped Rogue River every time. The first quarter ended 0-0. Quarterback Scott Bready hit Jesse Gardner for a 20-yard gain and just missed R.J. Buckles for what would have been a touchdown, The Red Devils lost the ball on a fumble but got it back on an interception by Jesse Neumann. The offense started to move the ball. Robert Hall gained 20 yards on a nice run but once more Coquille lost the ball on a fumble. With just over 40 seconds left in the half, Jesse Gardner intercepted a pass and returned it to Rogue River's 35 yard fine. As the rain ceased, Scott Bready hit David Blomquist and Joey Russell on two quick passes and the ball was on the one-yard line. Biomquist ran the ball in behind good blocks by the offensive line and Gardner kicked the extra point, making it 7-0 at the half. The third quarter saw two long drives. The Chieftains moved the ball but were forced to punt. The Red Devils got the ball on their own four-yard line. They drove the ball downfieid, the key play being a Bready to Russell pass for 50 yards, to the Chieftain's 20-yard line. The quarter ended with Coquille having the ball 1st and goal on the 9-yard line. Unfortunately, the Red Devils fumbled the ball away once more. The defense stopped Rogue River and forced a punt but a roughing penalty gave them the ball back. Devil defense had to stop them With seven minutes left in the Red Devils were forced to Chieftains drove down the field 4th and 2 on the 15-yard line utes left the Coquiile defense and sacked the quarterback.
