Eagle football faced one of the Intermountain Conference’s toughest lineups last week. Redmond High School is currently undefeated in the IMC and looks to compete for league honors against an also undefeated Pendleton squad. The varsity and junior varsity teams battled on the road at Redmond, while the freshman team played at home.
Redmond 65 - Hood River 16
The Eagles had 60 carries for 274 yards rushing. Highlights include Tim Chance, with 21 carries for 101 yards, Ryan Nelson, with 10 carries for 66 yards and Josh Castanada, with 5 carries for 28 yards.
“We’re going to use it as a building block for the rest of the season,” said Coach Tracy Jackson about the game.
Redmond 49 - Hood River 0
Offensively, the JV team we moved the ball fairly well. But they could not sustain a drive to the end zone. Players who stood out against Redmond were Ryan Nelson, who played hard on offense and defense. Nelson also played one quarter of varsity football as a wing. The varsity team loaned the JV John Moore, who played well on both lines lines. Ryan Shearer filled in for Jake Gilkerson at wing and he stepped up and did a great job. Also, Erik Nelson, who is playing first year of high school football, did a great job on the defensive line.
“The kids played hard and never quit, despite being little thin on players due to injuries and suspensions,” commented Coach Jon Vann.
Redmond 28 - Hood River 0
The freshman game was physical and hard-fought, with the Eagles coming up short on scoring opportunities. Hood River drove the ball the length of the field to about Redmond’s 20-yard line three times in the first half, but all three times Redmond’s defense stopped them on fourth downs.
Highlights include Jacob Bohince, with 19 carries for 105 yards, Sean Baker, with 10 tackles and 26 carries for 97 yards, Jordan McHale, with seven tackles and Elliot Sherrel, with five tackles.
“Overall, I am very proud of how our team played,” said Coach Troy Tactay. “I am more impressed with this 28-0 loss than any of our wins, because our guys showed me that they have more than just talent. They play hard and never gave up.”

I Can't Keep Quiet singers at "Citizen Town Hall"
‘I can’t keep quiet,’ sing members of an impromptu choir in front of Hood River Middle School Saturday prior to the citizen town hall for questions to Rep. Greg Walden. The song addresses female empowerment generally and sexual violence implicitly, and gained prominence during the International Women’s Day events in January. The singers braved a sudden squall to finish their song and about 220 people gathered in HRMS auditorium, which will be the scene of the April 12 town hall with Rep. Greg Walden, at 3 p.m. Enlarge
