Grid slate starts for 1B

 

After a championship in 2011 and a runner-up finish in 2012, Neah Bay’s Red Devils look to continue their strong run through their 1B 8-man schedule.

 

It starts though with an 11-man matchup against 2B Darrington after the Devils’ opening foe Taholah cancelled Friday night’s game because they did not have enough players to field a squad.

 

The game will be played at Chief Leschi High School in Puyallup.

 

The Neah Bay home opener will be Oct. 4 against mainland mainstays Lummi.

 

Farther east, the Clallam Bay Bruins kick off the season with a veteran running back core of seniors Matt Mohr and Calvin Ritter to lead the squad through its campaign.

 

A quarterback battle between junior Kelly Gregory and sophomore Kyle Keys will give the team a mix of savvy and speed.

 

The Bruins are slated to kick off the season Saturday at Wishkah. Their home opener is set for Friday, Sept. 13, against Muckleshoot.
