The date of the Clearwater Valley homecoming football game was reported incorrectly in last week’s print edition. The Rams’ homecoming game will be played this Friday, Oct. 2, against Genesee. We regret the error. We have corrected the article below. -ao

Any thoughts Council might have had of staging a homecoming upset of the reigning D1 champion Pirates were vaporized during the second quarter on Friday night, Sept. 18.

Council came into the game as one of the leading 1AD2 teams, but Prairie scored six seconds into the second frame, and eventually turned an 8-0 first quarter margin into a full-blown rout of 44-6 at halftime, 64-24 at the final horn.

Five seconds before the intermission, Jake Bruner connected a pass to Lucas Wemhoff for a 60-yard score. Bruner and Wemhoff were the only players to crack the end zone during the first quarter, with Wemhoff raiding Council's for a four-yard touchdown and big blocks blasting Bruner in for the subsequent conversion.

In total, the Pirates posted 439 yards of offense on 46 plays — good for a 9.5, with 14.2 per pass and 9.1 per run. The yardage worked out to four touchdown passes thrown by Bruner — two to Wemhoff and one apiece to Isaiah Shears and Calvin Hinkelman — plus five rushing touchdowns.

After Wemhoff's opener, Bruner ran for two and Hinkelman ran for two more. Council punched in touchdowns twice by pass, once by run and once by kickoff return, most of which came against PHS reserves during the second half.

Up next, Prairie (3-0) is scheduled to visit Clearwater Valley (1-2) at 7 p.m. Friday night, Sept. 25.

Kamiah cruises

KAMIAH — The 86-0 final score the Kubs inflicted on the Rams last Friday night, Sept. 18 was every bit as lopsided as the point total suggests.

The Lewiston Tribune reported Kamiah allowed zero yards in the course of the shutout, during which Taylor McAlister scored three touchdowns on six runs.

Up next, Kamiah (4-0) is scheduled to visit Potlatch (0-3) at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 25.

Up next for Clearwater Valley (1-2) is a home game against Prairie at 7 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 25.

Salmon River rolls

RIGGINS — Wilder wilted after a lopsided first half saw the Savages open up a 29-12 lead on the way to a 50-26 win over a Long Pin Conference foe.

Tucker Boyd scored on three runs last Friday night, Sept. 18, and threw a touchdown apiece to Riley Travis and Stephen Hackler.

Up next, Salmon River (2-1) plays a Long Pin Conference game at second-ranked Council (3-1) on Oct. 2.
