(Photo - A host of Blackshirt defenders tackle Shadle Park's Beckett Ensminger on a 4th-and-1 to end the Highlanders' final drive on Friday, October 14th.) COLVILLE - Coming off its first loss of the season the previous week in Freeman, the schedule facing the Colville Crimson Hawks allowed for no time to wallow in the disappointment of defeat. Not with the Greater Spokane League’s 2A leader Shadle Park visiting for Colville’s annual homecoming game. Buoyed by Emmet Marshall’s tie-breaking 13-yard touchdown pass from Cale Roy and an inside-the-10 fourth-down stop by the Blackshirt defense, the Hawks escaped with a hard-fought 35-28 victory against the Highlanders this past Friday night. The win improved Colville to 6-1 on the season. The Hawks host Northeast A League leader Lakeside (Nine Mile Falls), unbeaten at 7-0 (4-0 NEA). A victory for the Eagles, the defending league champions and a 2021 state quarterfinalist, clinches the NEA title. A loss, and Colville will sit in a three-way tie for first entering the final regular season contest. The stakes are undoubtedly high for both programs. “Lakeside is an extremely fast defense that runs to the ball really well,” Head Coach Greg Mace said. “I think we just need to be ourselves. “We are equipped to handle any defense we see and there isn’t anything “special” that we need to do in the game. We need to execute well, take care of the ball, and play to the best of our ability. The scoreboard will take care of itself.” Tied at 28 after a Shadle Park (5-2) touchdown pass from Natreven Dickerson to Jordan Dever knotted the score, the Colville offense responded with an 11-play, 71-yard drive. Colbie McEvoy had two key third-down conversions on the series, the first a 16-yard catch on third-and-12 and then followed that up by hauling in a 33-yard pass from Roy on third-and-14 that put the Hawks in the red zone. From there, Marshall found an opening on an additional high-leverage third down for his third touchdown reception of the season, which proved to be the game winner. McEvoy had scored earlier in the game - his eighth touchdown grab of the season - while Allan McKeraghan showed off his speed on two catch-and-run touchdown passes in the first quarter, spanning 64 and 60 yards. All told, the three players have a combined 55 catches for 1206 yards and 17 touchdowns through seven games. “The fact that it is a trio of guys that all have unique skill sets make them hard to deal with,” Mace said. “Colbie with his length and route running, Allan with his speed and strength, and Emmet with his toughness and explosiveness. We have the ability to spread the ball all over the field which makes us tough to defend.” Backed against the shadow of their own end zone and clinging to a seven-point lead last Friday, the Blackshirts had their most important stop of the night. On a fourth-and-one from the eight yard-line, Shadle Park lined up dynamic runner Beckett Ensminger at quarterback in its Wildcat formation. Running to his left, Ensminger got stood up by McKeraghan and was aided by a host of teammates. Close enough for a measurement, the spot was short and Colville took over on downs. Roy had to take one kneel-down to conclude the win. “Boy, that stop reminded me a lot of the 2018 Royal game and the famous measurement,” said Mace. “Over my years here at Colville I have watched our Blackshirts make stops like this time and time again and the excitement and thrill of a stop like that never gets old. “That’s just pure attitude and effort.” The early defense of the Highlanders was a challenge, a group that had their own set of offensive triplets in Ensminger, Dickerson and Dever. The Shadle Park offense is averaging 424 yards of offense in GSL league play, while only allowing 251.3 on the defensive side. Coming in on a five-game winning streak, the visitors jumped to leads of 7-0 and 14-7 in the first quarter by using a heavy ground game that featured Ensminger and Dickerson. Ensminger would run for 181 yards on the night, a season high allowed to a back by Colville. However, 101 of that came on the first two series of the night. Running yards were harder to come by after that point. “That was our first time seeing a zone blocking scheme this year, and it took some adjustments from Coach (Bill) Carpenter and company to keep the running game in check,” Mace said. “We were able to make some alignment adjustments up front, and also with the linebackers that proved to be pivotal in helping to stop the run game. Coach Carpenter and Coach (Shane) Roy are fantastic at making in-game adjustments on the fly in stopping opposing offenses and putting our kids in the best position to be successful.” Despite three turnovers themselves Friday night (a week after having six at Freeman), the Hawk offense was productive throughout. Colville compiled 338 yards on 48 plays (7.0 yard average), with the pass game accounting for 247 of that total. Roy would complete 11-of-20 passes for four scores, his third game this season with four or more in a game. McKeraghan led the receiving corps with 133 yards on three receptions, with McEvoy adding another 76 yards on four grabs. “We did turn the ball over again, however, in my eyes these turnovers were not in the same light as the turnovers against Freeman,” said Mace. “I felt we did a much better job in being patient with the football and utilizing our short pass game as an extension of our run game, particularly on third down.” Freshman Brock Benson got into the scoring act in the second quarter in what proved to be a pivotal turning point in the game. Ryan Pierce partially blocked an Ensminger punt, fortuitously falling into the hands of a surprised Benson at the Shadle Park 32-yard line. After a brief moment of confusion with the ball in tow, Benson raced the distance for the score, points that tied the game at 21 and swung momentum squarely back to the home team. Rain is in the forecast for Friday night’s game against Lakeside, a team ranked No. 1 in the latest Class 1A SBLive Washington state poll and No. 3 in both the Associated Press and Cascadia Preps rankings. Led by fourth-year starting quarterback Kole Hunsaker, the Eagle offense has plenty of playmakers that the Blackshirts must account for tonight. “The key to stopping Lakeside is stopping Hunsaker. He is the returning MVP of our league,” Mace explained. “He has a bevy of weapons around him with a lot of speed. We need to be able to pressure him off of his spots and cover well in the secondary. In addition, we must rally to the ball and tackle well in the run game and the pass game.” Looking for professional photography of the Colville Crimson Hawks and their sports teams?

(Photo - Allan McKeraghan (1) looks for running room down the sideline last Friday night in Colville's 43-21 loss at Freeman.) ROCKFORD - The full moon that lingered over the Freeman High School football field last Friday night may have provided the perfect backdrop for an early-October Northeast A League showdown. Unfortunately for the Colville Crimson Hawks, there was no luck harvested from the extra light. Six Hawk turnovers - two first-half interceptions in the red zone and an additional pick returned for a touchdown late in the second quarter - squashed any and all chances for the visitors in a 43-21 defeat to Freeman on the Scotties’ homecoming night. The loss ended Colville’s five-game winning streak to start the season and unseated it from the top of the league standings. The Crimson Hawks (3-1 NEA, 5-1 overall) host Shadle Park tonight at 7 PM in their annual homecoming game. “You cannot turn the ball over as many times as we did against a quality opponent and expect to win,” Head Coach Greg Mace said this week. “I would like to say that this is an anomaly, however, I do not know that it is unless we make some changes in the way that we approach offensive series. “We have to make great decisions with the football and take what the defense gives us. We have to learn that not every play is going to be a touchdown, and we will have to sustain long drives to be successful going forward.” Freeman’s Boen Phelps was a challenge all night for Colville despite being the focus of the team’s preparations. As good as advertised - perhaps better - the senior dynamo at quarterback and linebacker caused havoc on both sides of the ball. Phelps would throw for 148 yards and two scores in the air while running for 100 yards on just eight carries, adding a pair of touchdowns on the ground. For good measure, he capped the scoring in the second quarter defensively, taking a lateral from teammate Sage Gilbert after Gilbert intercepted a Cale Roy pass and rambled 34 yards for the punctuation mark on a 28-7 halftime lead for the Scotties (2-1, 4-2). It was the third time the Hawks have faced off with a Freeman-led Phelps offense, and the Scotties’ victory Friday night gave them the rubber match in those meetings. Colville prevailed 36-35 in the spring ‘21 season while Phelps got a measure of revenge in a 38-0 win last fall. “Phelps is a big, fast and physical athlete. He throws the ball well, and runs it even better,” said Mace. “You always have to be concerned about him. We were able to get to him a little bit, but we were not able to get him to the ground like we wanted. “That is the biggest issue with him - he is extremely hard to bring down.” Tasked with the challenge of defending Phelps and the potent Freeman offense was the Blackshirt defense, a unit that up until that point had limited opponents to 11.9 points per game, including two shutouts. Sloppy tackling and blown coverage assignments - uncharacteristic of the group thus far in the campaign - reared their ugly head throughout the night. The 328 yards allowed were a season high, a mark that can be attributed to the level of competition but also for the fact the group was on the field extensively with the number of turnovers committed by the offense. “The thing that disappointed me the most was the lack of rallying to the ball like we have seen all year,” Mace said. “There was more standing around and watching by our defense than the rest of our games combined. Our Blackshirts know that we expect more out of them. We also had some uncharacteristic penalties that extended drives when we had opportunities to get off the field defensively.” Emmet Marshall continued to be a bright spot in what was a dim night. The senior middle linebacker had nine tackles (five solo) and had a breakout game offensively. Marshall scored the first touchdown for the Crimson Hawks in the second quarter on a pass from Roy and ended the game with career highs in both receptions (four) and yards receiving (104). Running back Hunter Gleave was also mentioned by Mace for his efforts on both sides of the ball against the Scotties. “Emmet was solid catching the ball all night,” said Mace. “I feel that he is one of our more explosive offensive players and I mentioned last week that we would like to get him more involved in the offense. We were able to do that, which was nice to see.” The schedule continues to stay sturdy with a visit from the Shadle Park Highlanders tonight. Shadle Park, the Greater Spokane League’s 2A division leader (5-1 overall), is on its own five-game winning streak. Highlighted by a trio of offensive weapons - quarterback Natreven Dickerson, running back Beckett Ensminger and wide receiver Jordan Dever - the Highlanders bring a high-powered offense to town and a defense that holds their opponents to 13 points per game. “Shadle (Park) has some nice talent on both sides of the ball,” Mace said. “Defensively they do a nice job of taking away the vertical passing game. We will need to stay patient and work our short to intermediate pass game and pound the ground game.” Looming after the Shadle Park game is matchup with NEA leader Lakeside. The Eagles (3-0, 6-0) play host to Medical Lake (0-3, 0-6) tonight in their warm-up before a trip to Colville next week. “I still believe that this team can play with any top contender in this league,” Mace said. “Yes, we have things that we need to clean up and get right, but we will, and we will be better for it. There are many lessons to be learned by a loss.” Watch online on the Colville NFHS Channel (link) Looking for professional photography of the Colville Crimson Hawks and their sports teams?
