New Plymouth 8
COTTONWOOD — The Wildcats forced six turnovers in their win over of the Pilgrims on a cold and wet day at Prairie High.
“Defensively, this is the best we’ve played all year,” head coach Dan Davidian said. “We played good up front, we had good linebacker play, our secondary was solid and didn’t allow them to throw on us at all.”
Senior Reed Whatcott passed for over 200 yards and three touchdowns with one interception.
“Reed was terrific today,” Davidian said. “He was composed and made the right reads at the line of scrimmage when it was necessary. He showed a ton of leadership.”
Kellogg’s opening drive was surgical, going 70 yards in 12 plays, punctuated by a 20 yard grab by senior Jaeger Hall.
Kellogg forced a safety on New Plymouth’s opening drive.
Junior Tom O’Neill picked off Pilgrim quarterback Colton Frates early in the second quarter and returned it 55 yards for a Wildcat touchdown.
After going into the half up 21-0, Kellogg leaned on the legs of Whatcott and sophomore Andrew Lewis to drain the clock.
Junior Coleman Blalack caught two touchdowns, one in the second quarter and one late in the fourth.
New Plymouth remained scoreless until the final minute when junior Payton Travis scored from the one-yard line.
Kellogg (2-4, 1-1) now has some control over their postseason destiny - should they win out in their next two games they could be in line for an at-large berth into the state playoffs.
However, they’re going to have to do it on the road at Bonners Ferry and then Grangeville.
“In my four years here, this was our biggest win,” Davidian said. “Today’s win showed our continued progression this season and we know that it’s going to come down to the big one against Grangeville.”
Kellogg is on the road again next Friday night at Bonners Ferry.

POST FALLS — The visiting Wallace Miners wrapped up the Scenic Idaho Conference championship with a 25-15, 25-19, 11-25, 25-19 victory over the Genesis Prep Jaguars on Tuesday night at The Courts at Real Life.
Britany Phillips had an impressive night, with 13 kills, five blocks, and 15 digs. Tia Hendrick chipped in 10 kills, one block, and 12 digs. Megan Hull and Bethany Phillips each earned four aces, and setter Aubrey Birdsell notched 32 assists.
“We played great tonight,” Genesis Prep coach Paula Thurston said. “Slowed down in the first set, and lost our lead, but fought back in sets two through four. Wallace is a strong team, and to be able to take a set from them was an accomplishment in itself. Both teams played great and we had some very fun and very long rallies. It was a fun one to be a part of.”
Wallace 3, Clark Fork 0
CLARK FORK — Clark Fork fell to the unbeaten Miners 3-0 (11-25, 18-25, 15-25) at Clark Fork High School on Thursday.
“We got some of our mojo back after our win over Mullan,” head coach Lyndsie Kiebert-Carey said. “Even though we couldn’t take a set from Wallace, the team fought hard and cheered each other on. We hope to keep that energy heading into the final stretch of the regular season.”
Leading the Wampus Cats was senior Lilly Reutter who piled up 18 assists and two aces. Amari Printz-Hay also added three aces of her own. Aurora Lane stepped in for Eloise Shelton and posted a team-high seven kills and seven digs. On defense, Piper Scarlett and Amie Matteson had seven and five digs, respectively, for Clark Fork.

Ava Stancil had 10 kills and 13 digs for St. Maries. Mia Asbury had eight kills and four aces, Naomi Mueller had 13 kills and two blocks.
“Great night of volleyball,” St. Maries coach Rachele Fischer said. “It’s our homecoming week too, which is always a hard week on us, just a lot going on for the girls and makes it more difficult to focus. It was good to see the team come out strong. Kellogg is a tough opponent for us, and we were able to use our aggressive serving to our advantage, and our hitters were moving the ball around to find areas to score. It would have been good to do it in three, but it was still a good win for us, even in four.”
For Kellogg, Maddie Cheney had 12 kills and two blocks, Dani Henrikson 16 assists and four aces, Raven Oertli 14 assists, Brielle Hei 23 digs, and Emily Coe two blocks.
