Out with a bang

Junior Declan Hinkley had a goal and an assist as the Ashland High boys soccer team opened its season with a 6-0 nonleague win over Mountain View, Friday at Walter A. Phillips Field.

Junior Ian Rinefort’s strike off a 30-yard free ball pass-ahead via Hinkley gave the Grizzlies the only goal they would need in the 19th minute, and seven minutes later junior Jahnoi Hall capped a gorgeous three-man combination that included setup passes from juniors Leo Duetz and Ben Lucero to make it 2-0.

A diving Hinkley scored off junior Joe Holden’s corner in the 38th to cap the first-half scoring.

Junior Jade Boucher, Joseph Wallner-Sentle and Lucero tacked on goals in the second half. Boucher’s left-footed 25-yard blast capped a spectacular drive that saw him elude at least three defenders.

Ashland hosts Bend today, at 11 a.m.

Prep Football

Tucker Atteberry passed for an efficient 158 yards, Andrew Stark rushed for 73 yards and two touchdowns and the Grizzly defense dominated as the Ashland High football team opened its season with a 36-0 nonconference victory over Klamath Union, Friday at Walter A. Phillips Field.

Playing a game under new LED stadium lights and on a new turf field for the first time since it was opened for use three weeks ago, the Grizzlies had no trouble dispatching the Pelicans while scoring all 36 points in the first half before letting their foot of the gas the rest of the way.

Nicky Weinberg got the party started with an 8-yard run to complete Ashland's first drive less than two minutes into the game, and he scored his second touchdown about a minute and a half later when he returned an interception 26 yards.

Atteberry completed 14 of 22 passes for 158 yards and one touchdown without an interception. Oliver Warren had four catches for 70 yards, including a 31-yard touchdown in the second. Warren also picked off a pass on defense.

Myles Montgomery had a team-high seven tackles and Stark six to lead the Grizzly defense, which held the Pelicans to 150 yards. Montgomery and Stark each had a sack as well for Ashland, which had five sacks overall.

Next up for the Grizzlies is a road trip to Summit next Friday for a rematch of the 2015 state championship game.
