Mora, Petersen headed in different directions

PULLMAN — Jim Mora’s “business trip” to Seattle last weekend was an undeniable success. The UCLA coach returned to the city where he grew up, where he played college football at the University of Washington and coached the Seahawks and left with a 44-30 win over the Huskies.

Hernandez favored to win Cy Young award

For much of the 2014 season, Felix Hernandez was the best pitcher in the American League. The Mariners’ ace was dominant, consistent and vital in the team’s resurgence and 87-75 record.

Ephrata football team’s season ends

CLARKSTON — The Ephrata football team couldn’t overcome a 15-point halftime deficit on Tuesday against Clarkston in the District 5/6/7 playoffs.

Hunting options abound this month in NCW

Waterfowl hunting action can really start to heat up in the Columbia Basin in November if temperatures drop and bring migrant ducks and geese from the north. Expect large numbers of mallards, wigeon, gadwalls, teal, scaup, redheads and canvasbacks. Early season migrant Canada geese (Lesser and Taverner’s) begin to scatter from their initial staging area at Stratford Lake to alfalfa or grain fields near Moses Lake and the Columbia River.

WDFW works to highlight rec opportunities in the Okanogan

OLYMPIA — Recreational opportunities abound through the fall and winter in the Okanogan region, and leaders from Brewster, Bridgeport and Pateros are promoting them in partnership with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife.

Local fishing hot, profitable in November

November can be a very profitable time to fish for many species in some of the region’s waterways, according to Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife Northcentral Region Fish Program manager Jeff Korth.

Falk provides hope for Cougars’ future

At one point, during a timeout, Luke Falk invaded a defensive circle on the sideline and patted shoulders, lending encouragement. Then he ducked over to a bench where offensive teammates were sitting and slapped a few shoulder pads there, too.

Huskies hope backcourt can lead them to NCAAs

SEATTLE — Nigel Williams-Goss seriously considered the NBA. He put time and thought into calling his college career good after one season at Washington and seeing if his game was ready for the professional level.

Kent brings new attitude to Pullman to revive WSU

PULLMAN — The fact Ernie Kent is even at Washington State means that he has a tall task ahead of him to make the Cougars a competitive team. If the team hadn’t sunk to a level where it barely reached double-digit wins, then his old friend, athletic director Bill Moos, would never have come calling, and Kent would still be watching WSU games as an analyst for the Pac-12 networks.

Seahawks get their mojo back, impose their will

In the second half Sunday, the Seahawks were the Seahawks again. It was unmistakably so, as a stingy and opportunistic defense combined with an overpowering, run-based offense to pound the New York Giants.

Film events to help you weather November

November is a dark, dank, undesirable month that has many of us seeing our motivation sagging like a week-old birthday balloon. With fewer things to do and the need for motivation, ski films, outdoor films and environmental films tend to be popular this time of year. Here in the Wenatchee Valley, for example, all of the following films and festivals are on tap to help get us through the November blahs.
