Opinion: PacWest in Three-Way Tie, Should Knock De La Salle Out of Elite-8

The debate should be settled with Amity’s win over Dayton 52-45, but, sadly, the angling will only ramp up from here. As a group which has seen every team in the at-large bid chase multiple times both in person and on NFHS, has talked to multiple coaches, players, and media members both inside and outside […]

Semi Rapid-Reaction: Old WVL Rivals Sheridan and Dayton Meet in 7-on-7 Scrimmage

Semi Rapid-Reaction: Old WVL Rivals Sheridan and Dayton Meet in 7-on-7 Scrimmage

Dayton took a 25 minute drive westward tonight to play an old West Valley League rival, Sheridan, in a 7-on-7 flag football game. Any other year, that sentence would’ve peaked nobody’s interest. But in any other year, a Wednesday in October would’ve had both these teams in mid-season fully padded practices, not wearing masks that […]

Peterson to Dayton is Huge, Here’s Why:

There are rising stars, there are up and comers, there are hot name coaching prospects that find themselves at the top of every job openings list of potential hires.

Coos Bay Cliff-Notes: Second day of the most backwards state tournament ever

DLS Amity The Coos Bay curse is back apparently.  One week after Amity looked like possibly the best team in the state against Nyssa in the round of 16, the Warriors have gone two and out in the state tournament.

Coos Bay Cliff-Notes: A very, very eventful day one on the boys side

DLS v OES DLS lost to OES. Yes, you read that right. The pressure didn’t bother OES at all. The Knights looked like a team that had never been in Coos Bay before, which was just flat weird. OES #13 Charles Wilmott had 28/3/3. When he’s going, OES can play with anyone anywhere. George Sadi […]

Delayed Rapid Reaction: YC no longer taking baby steps, nearing full sprint

Football has gone from doormat to league champions; volleyball just had its winningest season since 2011, boys soccer just had its first winning season since 2010, girls soccer has become a perennial state power in […]

Amity runs over, around, and through Dayton, also runs into the history books.

Amity runs over, around, and through Dayton, also runs into the history books.

Just how historic was Amity’s 54-0 trouncing of Dayton? Other than Amity attaining a 3 game win streak over Dayton for the first time since the run of four from 1999-2002, last night saw the largest point differential in an Amity-Dayton game, ever. That’s right, ever. Unbeknownst to everyone in attendance, they were all witness […]

Who will be the favorite to win the 2019 Championship?

The start of 3a football seems to be right around the corner with summer practices starting up. This season seems to have a lot more what if’s rather than a favorite to win a State Championship. However, a few teams that should be good again in 2019 are Rainier, Amity, Clatskanie and, Nyssa, Madras, and […]
