Clearwater Valley thrashes Timberline
KOOSKIA — Lane Schilling scored five times — all in the first half — and the Clearwater Valley boys dispatched Timberline with a shutout, 46-0, last Friday night, Aug. 30.
Schilling finished with 248 rushing yards, according to the Lewiston Tribune.
Will Willis put one into the end zone, and Christian Fabbi and Tyce Pfefferkorn added scoring runs.
Up next, Clearwater Valley (1-0) faces a tougher test at Council (0-1). Council took a 50-6 loss to Notus last week, but CV coach Roger Whalen told the Free Press he thinks that score doesn’t reflect Council’s abilities, as the Lumberjacks were up against several of the biggest players in the classification.
“Council has one big lineman and one big running back,” Whalen said. “They like to blitz, and that’s going to cause us some trouble.”
Game time this Friday, Sept. 6, at Council is 6 p.m. MT.
Among 26 players out for Kamiah football, the Kubs have an all-state lineman and playoff aspirations this fall.
