To the finals! Imbler wins

If you see Nick Thompson today, do him a favor.

Pinch him.

Tell the Imbler quarterback this magic carpet ride is reality, not a dream. Tell him that scoreboard Saturday reading Imbler 68, South Wasco 46 was real, not stage five sleep.

Go ahead. Grab two fingers, place them on his right arm, and give him a slight squeeze.

EOU cross country competes in badger state

KENOSHA, Wisc. — A difficult Wisconsin course and a fast field got the best of the Mountaineers' cross country teams Saturday.

On the men's side EOU finished 19th.

Individually, Zach Heath got a strong start, faded after 2.75 miles and then rallied well over the last 800-meters to finish first for EOU.

Mohawk crushes powder pride

MISSED CHANCES: Powder Valley junior Justin Allen tries to reel in a potential touchdown pass from quarterback Keegan Conro at the Mohawk goal line in the second quarter. However, the ball was tipped into the air and intercepted, resulting in one of several misssed opportunities in the first half for Powder Valley. Mohawk scored 22 points in the second quarter and took a 40-6 lead into halftime, putting the game well out of reach. - The Observer/PAUL HARDER
NORTH POWDER — It was centered across the end zone, written in red and blue, symbolizing the Powder Valley mindset in this OSAA quarterfinal playoff game.


There it stood, a word of high self-esteem and respect, clearly visible on dry grass. But in the end, the lettering was torn and smeared, partly from Mother Nature, partly from Mohawk players crossing the goal line nine times.

EOU men's basketball earns split

Perfection no longer remains, but if you would've presented Ryan Looney with a 6-1 record before the season started, well...

"I would've said, ‘I'll take it,'" the EOU men's basketball coach said Sunday night, one day after returning from a two-game tournament in Caldwell, Idaho.

At that College of Idaho Golden Rule Shootout, EOU rallied from an early deficit to win Saturday, and also played tough against Divsion-1 Westminister on Friday, despite losing.

Two year plan: EOU men running in nationals

Every success starts with a plan — some just take longer to carry out.

The Eastern Oregon men's cross country team met one of its goals after qualifying for the national meet in Kenosha, Wis., today.

Mountaineers head coach Ben Welch said it took a change of mind.

"It took the team a while to buy into the program," Welch said. "We faced a combination of problems, none of which are conducive to this sport."

Cross country is a pandora's box for the selfish.

Walking the plank: Panthers prepared to wage war with Pirates

West-ward expansion: Nick West and the Panthers will head to Perrydale looking for a berth to the Class 1A state football semifinals. - Submitted photo/ERIC VALENTINE
As they huddled at midfield, raising those black and orange helmets toward the Imbler sky, Panthers players collectively yelled a celebratory line in unison, signifying their opening-round playoff win.


Yes, that's what they said.

Maybe it was a reference to Imbler cooking another opponent, this time in the likes of Mitchell-Spray.

Whatever it meant, Imbler hopes to yell the comic celebratory line again at Perrydale at noon Saturday in an OSAA quarterfinal battle.

Hard Facts: Ducks' certainly etched in stone

How many people woke up feeling refreshed in Oregon today? Probably not many following the Ducks' loss in Tucson.

While most fans of the soon to be former No. 2 team will not admit it, they were preparing for it.


It used to be death and taxes were the only two certainties in life, but add another one to the stone slab — the Ducks will let you down.

EOU football: season to forget

MAYBE NEXT YEAR: Mounties sophomore defensive back Ulises Trejo gallops downfield Saturday versus Montana State Northern. - The Observer/CHRIS BAXTER
The Mountaineers did not draw up a one-win season prior to starting the 2007 campaign, but it worked out that way.

Following a loss to Montana State Northern, EOU dropped to 1-10 in the Frontier Conference — with the lone win coming at home against the University of Montana State Western, 38-24.

This season wipes out a streak of three consecutive winning seasons.

Tigers' title run falls short in finals

LYMAN LEADING: Tigers senior Josi Lyman puts down a kill during the championship match against Sisters Saturday. La Grande lost in five games. - The Observer/PAUL HARDER
EUGENE — What is a poll worth? Not very much following the Class 4A State Championship.

Sisters walked away with the title after rallying past La Grande in five games (18-25, 26-24, 19-25, 25-13, 15-10) Saturday.

All year long La Grande and Estacada graced the top of the polls.

Following the championship match, Sisters topped them both.

Panthers prowl, move on to Perrydale

PANTHER PRIDE: Imbler senior quarterback Nick Thompson accounted for seven touchdowns Saturday in a 69-20 win against Mitchell-Spray. The Panthers will play at Perrydale at noon Saturday. - The Observer/BRUCE MASON
IMBLER — There was Imbler coach Lee Lowe, entering the locker room, listening to his screaming Panthers, followed by a chorus of thunderous clapping, then one collective, shouting message.


How fitting.

They said it after the game, used it during the game, and now, this 1A Special District 4 school is headed to the OSAA Final Eight.
