In the Eagles first game of the season, they handled business against the Hillsboro Spartans, but their week two match up featured a team ranked in the top-10 of the state according to OregonLive.

Dufur won last week via forfeit over the Lyle/Wishram/Klickitat High Cougars (1-1). The Cougars had COVID health and safety concerns, and they had only 10 of their 16 players available for the contest. Sherman lost a nonleague game Friday at DeSales Catholic School in Walla Walla, Wash., 60-20.

After two years of competing in the OSAA Class 1A six-man football Special District 4, the Sherman County Huskies (0-1) returned to eight-man football against DeSales. Their season-opening contest against Crane was canceled Sept. 4.

The South Wasco County boys basketball team capped its best season in 15 years by taking third place in the Oregon Class 1A/Community Bank/Steens Baker County State Tournament last week at Baker High School and Powder Valley High.
