Culver on wrong end of defensive battle

Blocked punt returned for TD was only score in 13-6 loss


The Culver High School football team could only muster one touchdown in a 13-6 loss to Toledo on Friday.

All the scoring happened in the first half, with Culver’s lone score coming off a blocked punt returned for a touchdown in the first quarter.

Toledo quarterback Jackson Cross threw both scores for the Boomers, including a 49-yarder in the second quarter.

Culver ran the ball 33 times for 155 yards, and was led by Kyle Easterly’s 33 yards on five carries.

Quarterback Clay McClure, coming off an ankle injury, ran the ball three times for 32 yards.

The loss drops Culver to 1-4 in Tri-River Conference play and 2-7 overall.

The Bulldogs will travel to Halsey to take on Central Linn on Friday.

Buff boys soccer skid continues

The Madras High School boys soccer team was sitting in first place in the Tri-Valley Conference less than two weeks ago.

Now, they are in a fight to just make the playoffs.

Following a 4-0 loss to La Salle Prep on Thursday, the White Buffalos have lost three straight matches and dropped to fourth place in the TVC. Only the top three teams earn a spot in the postseason.

The Buffs also lost to North Marion 2-0 on Oct. 22.

The final game of the regular season was Tuesday against Molalla, but the score wasn’t available by the Pioneer’s press deadline.

Culver falls to Umatilla to home

The Culver High School soccer team fell to second-place Umatilla 10-3 on Saturday in Culver.

The loss dropped the Bulldogs to 2-6 in Special District 4 play, and 5-6 overall.

The Bulldogs finished the year against winless Irrigon on Tuesday.

Buff girls soccer still winless

The Madras High School girls soccer team dropped two TVC matches to North Marion (3-0) and La Salle Prep (4-0).
