Pendleton v Redmond football

Pendleton’s Payton Lambert runs the ball Sept. 9, 2022, against Redmond in Pendleton. Lambert, the Bucks’ leading rusher, will lead his team into the 4A state playoffs Friday, Nov. 4, against Stayton.

PENDLETON — Stayton coach Randy Nyquist played against Pendleton when he was the coach at West Albany, so when his Eagles drew the Bucks in the first round of the 4A state playoffs for Friday, Nov. 4, he knew his team was in for a battle.

“I know what kind of program Pendleton has,” said Nyquist, who has coached in Oregon for 31 years. “Their grocery basket is full. There isn’t much they don’t have. We’ll see if we can’t give them a game.”
