Mac-Hi powers past Stanfield

STANFIELD - The Mac-Hi Pioneers beat Stanfield on Friday 18-6 in their last nonconference game of the season.

Mac-Hi scored three touchdowns in the first half to take an 18-0 lead going into halftime.

Mac-Hi junior Robert Stallings scored the first two touchdowns of the game on runs of 27 and 6 yards.

"They used their running attack pretty steady for four quarters," said Stanfield coach Curtis Corvino. "Offensively, we couldn't get things going."

Mac-Hi's Wayne Williams intercepted a Sam Grogan pass and returned it 26 yards for the touchdown.

Stanfield finally scored in the fourth quarter on an 8-yard run by Nate Dick for their only score of the game.

"After two tough ones in a row, I am looking forward to next week," said Corvino.

Heppner falls to Willamina

WILLAMINA - The Heppner Mustangs lost another nonleague conference game Friday, this time a 50-18 affair at Willamina.

Heppner (0-3) had trouble stopping Willamina's lead rusher Brian Fendall, who tallied 268 rushing yards.

"This was the most physical team we have seen," said Heppner coach Greg Grant. "I think we did a good job playing physical up front and had opportunities to play with them."

" We would make great stands and (Willamina) would just pull through on third and fourth down," Grant said. "I was pleased with the kids' effort, playing against an extremely physical team."

Heppner will start Columbia Basin Conference play Friday in Stanfield.
