CENTRAL POINT — Cascade Christian ran the ball and then ran it some more Friday night against Coquille.

With a career game from nimble-footed sophomore running back Tyler Stickler, the Challengers compiled 443 yards on the ground on 61 attempts and trucked over Coquille, 45-15, for their first victory of the season in the Sunset League opener for both teams at Dutch Meyer Field.

Stickler, running mostly to the outside, rolled up career-highs of 199 yards and three scores on 15 carries.

Stickler showed off his speed right out of the gates, blazing a 39-yard trail to the end zone to break the ice for the Challengers (1-2, 1-0 Sunset).

Joseph Harris responded for the Red Devils by returning the ensuing kickoff 87 yards to tie the game 7-all.

After a Drew Davis 32-yard field goal gave the Challengers a 10-7 edge, Stickler capped the first quarter with a 10-yard touchdown scamper and opened the second period with a 64-yard run to pay dirt.

The Red Devils made it down to Cascade Christian's 5-yard line midway through the quarter, but Taylor Ost's interception at the goal line negated what would be Coquille's final opportunity to score before the half.

Cascade Christian's Brandon Grissom capitalized on the mistake by capping a seven-play drive with a 10-yard trot to the end zone, giving the Challengers a 31-7 halftime lead.

Thereafter, Coquille and its pass-first offense tried to play catch up, but the spread option attack was no match for the Challengers' stingy secondary. Cascade Christian limited the Red Devils to 132 yards on 7 of 28 passing.

Grissom finished with 57 yards on nine carries and scored two touchdowns and Connor Kirkpatrck rushed for 67 yards on 12 carries.
