The Burns volleyball team swept their final three league matches to lay claim to the Wapiti League regular season title.

Burns finished the season with a perfect 12-0 record, and will next compete in the district tournament Saturday, Oct. 24, at Eastern Oregon University in La Grande.

The Hilanders hosted Imbler on Friday, Oct. 16, and defeated the Panthers 25-12, 25-19, 25-15.

Lindsey Taylor sealed the first-set win for Burns  with two aces on her final three serves.

Burns jumped out to a 12-5 lead in the second set and looked like they would win easily, but the Panthers put together a late rally to close the gap to 20-18. A kill by Clemens got the momentum back in the Hilanders’ favor, and Carli Feist served the final three points, including an ace on the final point, as Burns picked up the win.

Burns led by as many as four points in the early going of the third set, only to see Imbler close the gap to 12-11 with a short-lived rally. The Hilanders eventually went up 22-14, and went on to win the set and the match.

Clemens finished with 10 kills, 12 digs and three aces; Taylor added seven kills, seven digs and four aces; Taylor Crafts five kills and four blocks; Feist 23 assists and seven digs; Carson five kills and two aces; and Kaylea Friedrichsen 14 digs and one ace.

Feist was the team leader in assists with 28.

Defensively, Friedrichsen and Ally Sutcliffe each recorded eight digs, and Taylor and Clemens seven apiece, and Carson led the team in blocks with three.

The Crane Mustangs found the end zone on their first six possessions on their way to a 62-0 win over Prairie City on Friday, Oct. 2.

The game was called after just two quarters of play.

Dustin Ramge rushed for four scores and added another touchdown on a 51-yard punt return to lead the Mustangs to the win.

The Panthers received the opening kickoff, and after picking up one first down, fumbled the ball away at their own 40.

On the Mustangs’ first offensive play, Ramge broke loose for the score, and David Steeves ran in the two-point conversion to put the Mustangs up 8-0 with less than a minute gone in the game.

Crane got the ball back about a minute later on an interception by Cashe Davis, who returned the ball to the Panthers’ 6-yard line. Steeves scored on the next play to give Crane a two-TD lead.

After forcing the Panthers to punt on their next possession, Ramge’s return for a score and Steeves’ two-point conversion run gave the Mustangs a 22-0 lead.

Crane took over on downs at the Panthers’ 5 with just over six minutes to go in the first quarter, and scored on a 1-yard run by Ramge.

In the second quarter, an interception by Elijah Epling gave Crane the ball at the Prairie City 40, and Ramge scored again on the first play from scrimmage.

Prairie City fumbled on the ensuing kickoff, and Crane took over at the Panthers’ 33. Steeves ran for 24 yards on first down, and Ramge then carried the ball in from nine yards out to finish off the drive.

A second interception by Davis gave the Mustangs the ball back at the Prairie City 31, and Steeves scored on the Mustangs’ next play. A two-point conversion pass from Jack Bentz to William Clark put Crane ahead 54-0 with less than a minute gone in the second quarter.

The Mustangs’ final score came on a 9-yard run by Epling, and JayJay Balowski added the two-point conversion run.

The Mustangs rushed for 244 yards, led by Ramge with 90 yards on four carries and Steeves with 80 yards on five attempts.

The Crane defense was almost impenetrable, holding the Panthers to minus 29 yards rushing and allowing just 44 yards through the air.

With the victory, Crane improved to 1-1 in league play and 4-1 overall.

The Mustangs host Jordan Valley for their homecoming game on Friday, Oct. 9, with kickoff set for 1 p.m.

The Burns Hilanders scored on six of their first seven possessions and held La Pine to just 109 total yards in a 48-0 non-conference win on Friday, Sept. 25, at Corbett Memorial Field.

Nick Palmer led the Hilanders’ rushing attack, picking up 136 yards on 15 carries with two touchdowns. Trey Recanzone completed five of eight passes for 102 yards and two scores, and added another 99 yards on the ground with a pair of touchdowns.

After forcing the Hawks to go three-and-out on the game’s first possession, Burns took over at their own 38. Recanzone finished off the six-play drive with a 33-yard touchdown run, giving Burns a 6-0 lead.

Burns fumbled on their next possession, but ended up with great field position when the Hawks’ punter fumbled the snap at the La Pine 26.

Following an incomplete pass, Palmer slid through the defense and raced in for the score. Trace Tiller threw to Ty Hueckman for the two-point conversion and 14-0 Burns’ lead.

The Hilanders made it 21-0 with a 22-yard touchdown pass from Recanzone to Evan Gunderson, and the extra-point kick by James Obradovich.

Palmer scored on a 7-yard run to start the second quarter, and Tiller connected with Bryce Goss on the two-point conversion to make it 29-0.

The Hawks had their best drive of the night on their next possession, reaching the Burns’ 7-yard line before turning the ball over on downs.

Starting deep in their own territory, the Hilanders drove 93 yards in eight plays and went up 35-0 on Kyle Robey’s 7-yard run.

With 1:14 left in the half, Recanzone threw to Goss for a 16-yard TD, and Burns led 41-0 at halftime.

On their first possession of the second half, the Hilanders went 51 yards in four plays, getting the score on a 7-yard run by Recanzone.

The game went to a running clock because of the 45-point rule, and the Hilanders began rotating the starters out of the game.

The Hawks threatened to score late in the fourth quarter, but Robey came up with an interception to end the drive.

With the win, Burns evened their record at 2-2, while La Pine dropped to 1-3.

The Hilanders open up league play Friday, Oct. 2, at Imbler. The Panthers come into the game with a 1-3 record. Kickoff is set for 2 p.m.

Sisters’ Mitch Gibney scored on a 1-yard run with 1:31 left in the game to give the Outlaws a 34-29 win over Burns in the season-opener for both teams Friday, Sept. 4, at Corbett Memorial Field.

The winning touchdown came after the Outlaws blocked a quick-kick attempt by the Hilanders and then recovered the kick at Burns’ 8-yard line.

The Hilanders got off to a good start, scoring on their first two possessions to take a 14-0 lead. The first score came on a 37-yard pass from Trey Recanzone to Ty Hueckman, and then Scott Davies went 34 yards on a screen pass from Recanzone to put Burns up by two scores in the first quarter.

The Outlaws made it 14-8 in the second quarter on a 3-yard scoring run by Gibney and a two-point conversion run by Logan Schutte.

Burns upped their lead with 1:36 left in the first half on a 15-yard touchdown pass from Recanzone to Trace Tiller. Tiller threw to Hueckman for the two-point conversion to give the Hilanders a 22-8 lead.

The East went up 6-0 with 55 seconds left in the first quarter when Feist scored on a 19-yard run to cap off a 15-play, 76-yard drive.

Midway through the second quarter, the East blocked a punt and took over at the West 22-yard line. On first down, Cross hit Jelden on a fade pattern down the left sideline for the score and a 12-0 lead.

The West fumbled on their next possession, and the East recovered at the West 42. The East drove down to the 13-yard-line, and on fourth-and-9, Cross zipped a pass to Jelden in the end zone for an 18-0 East lead.

The West’s best chance to score came early in the fourth quarter when they drove to inside the 5-yard line, only to fumble into the end zone, where the East recovered the loose ball for a touchback.

Following a punt by the East, the West began their next drive at their own 20. After picking up one first down, the West’s drive came to a halt when Sweet Home’s Hunter Jutte came up with an interception, giving the East a first-and-10 at the West 25.

On third-and-9, Feist threw to Joey Lacaster for an 18-yard gain to the 6. Feist picked up the final six yards on his own, scoring from four yards out with 2:42 left in the game.
