FOOTBALL (1-3, 1-3)
Thursday, Chiawana (1-3, 1-3) away.
This was scheduled as a Friday home game but got “smoked out.” It is Wenatchee’s only nonleague game of the season. The RiverHawks used to be members of the CBBN, but are now part of the Mid-Columbia Conference. The Panthers have only faced Chiawana two times and the Riverhawks prevailed in each, 28-0 in 2010 and 27-13 a year ago. This season CHS is 1-3 and sixth in their 8-team league.
By the way, the win over Davis three weeks ago was the 200th for Wenatchee in 46-plus seasons in the current league.
Ouch! The Panthers have lost eight of their last 10 games. The last time they dropped that many in a 10-game stretch was 1996. They last time a season started with a 1-3 record was 2003.
