Madras football heads to North Marion; Culver volleyball hosts three matches


Friday, Oct. 15, 7 p.m.

Madras (2-3) @ North Marion (0-5)

The White Buffalos look to score their second on-field win of the season when they head to Aurora to take on the winless Huskies of North Marion.

So far this season, the Huskies have a had a very tough time, losing four games on the field and another in which they had to forfeit due to COVID-19. As of Monday evening, however, Madras athletic director Daniel Barendse confirmed that North Marion would be back from quarantine in time for this game.

On average, North Marion has been outscored 42-3 in the games they have played. If Madras' offense stays in sync, it could be a big day.

Friday, Oct. 15, 7 p.m.

Culver (1-4) vs. Colton (2-3)

Culver is coming off their first win of the season after defeating the Gervais Cougars 41-21 last Thursday on the road.

The Bulldogs' next opponent is Colton, a team that has also been struggling on the year. Prior to last week, the Vikings had dropped four consecutive games, including three in the 2A Special District 2 league.

Against Sheridan last Thursday, Colton's offense was able to keep up with the Spartans, and the result was a 35-34 non-league win.

The Colton game also serves as homecoming night at Culver High School, so the community should be out in full force to cheer on the school's royalty, as well as the Bulldogs' football team.


Thursday, Oct. 14, 6 p.m.

Madras (1-10) @ Corbett (5-7)

Monday, Oct. 18, 6 p.m.

Madras (1-10) vs. Gladstone (5-6)

As Madras looks to return to form on the volleyball court, they will take on two Tri-Valley opponents in the coming days.

First, the White Buffalos make the trip to Corbett to face the Cardinals. The teams have not met this season, as their original match date was postponed due to COVID issues in the Madras program.

On Monday, the team is back in the Buffalo Dome to for Senior Night. The team's five seniors are JB Bruised Head, Maddy Johnson, Alexa La Pier, Taylor Olson and Christina Thomas.

Thursday, Oct. 14, 5 p.m.

Culver (7-8) vs. Kennedy (3-9)

Friday, Oct. 15, 3:30 p.m.

Culver (7-8) vs. W. Christian (6-7)

Monday, Oct. 18, 5 p.m.

Culver (7-8) vs. Santiam (4-9)

Tuesday, Oct. 19, 5 p.m.

Culver (7-8) @ Colton (1-13)

The Bulldogs enter the playoff push as they stare down a busy slate of four games in a six-day span.

The stretch starts with a three-game homestand, first with Kennedy on Thursday, then Western Christian on Friday. After a weekend to catch their breath, Culver is right back at it with their home finale on Monday against Santiam. The Bulldogs have already beaten both Kennedy and Santiam on the road, but have not yet played Western Christian.

Then, a season-ending trip to Colton on Tuesday provides another opportunity for a win. If things break right for Culver and they handle their business, a spot in the playoffs could be near.


Thursday, Oct. 14, 4 p.m.

Madras (3-5-2) @ Estacada (4-2-3)

Clark Jones and the Buffs look to grab a win to set themselves back on a good trajectory in the Tri-Valley.

When Madras and Estacada played back on Sept. 23 at MHS, the Buffs and Rangers dueled to a 1-1 draw. In the rematch, the White Buffalos will be in search of a win as time runs out to get into playoff position this season.


Thursday, Oct. 14, 4 p.m.

Madras (1-8-0) vs. Estacada (3-4-2)

While the boys go on the road, the Madras girls soccer team will be hosting Estacada on Thursday afternoon.

In the first meeting between the two, the Rangers ran away with a 6-0 win on their home field. Now, the green-clad visitors will have to prove they can play just as well in enemy territory.

The Buffs are hunting for their first win since Sept. 2.


Wednesday, Oct. 13, 4:30 p.m.

Madras XC @ Estacada Invite

The Madras co-ed cross country team heads out to Estacada for another chance to improve their 5K times. At the moment, a handful of the White Buffalo runners are looking like they could make it to the state championships next month, including Hannah MacDuffee, Isaiah Wapsheli and Talise Wapsheli.

Thursday, Oct. 14, 3 p.m.

Culver XC @ Clash in the Cascades

The Bulldogs are back on the course this Thursday when they head to Black Butte Ranch for the Clash in the Cascades 5K race.

The Culver boys team is in good shape to qualify for the state championships based on their past few performances, led by Evan Powell and Aiden Guest.

The girls team may have a harder time qualifying, but Olivia Rydman may have a shot at getting to Eugene on an individual basis.
