After losing their first two nonleague games to top-10 ranked teams Elgin (3-0) and Union (2-1), the Lyle/Wishram/Klickitat High Cougars turned things around in Week 3 of Class 1A eight-man football. The No. 17-ranked Cougars opened their six-game Special District 2 West Division schedule with a 46-22 win over No. 23-ranked Ione/Arlington on Sept. 16 at Ione High School.

The road win left the Cougars, guided by Coach Dave Devoe, in a three-way tie for first place early in the SD2 season. The No. 1-ranked Powder Valley High Badgers (1-0 SD2, 3-0) and the No. 5 ranked Enterprise High Outlaws (1-0 SD2, 3-0) are tied with the Cougars.
