The Burns Hilanders moved into the quarterfinals of the Class 2A OSAA state football playoffs with a 57-7 victory over the Kennedy Trojans on Saturday, Nov. 8, at Corbett Memorial Field.

Austin Feist threw for 186 yards and three touchdowns, and rushed for 90 yards and two scores to lead the Hilanders to the win.

The Hilanders took a quick 7-0 lead as Jeff Davies scored on a 62-yard run on the game’s first offensive play.

Kennedy started their first drive at their own 29, and using a good mix of pass and run, put together a 12-play scoring drive that was capped off by a 19-yard TD pass from Noah Giberson to Bishop Mitchell.

Burns started their next possession at their own 39, and picked up a quick first down on a 23-yard run by Feist. Three plays later, facing a fourth-and-13, Feist faked the punt and threw a 16-yard completion to Ty Hueckman to keep the drive alive. Five plays later, Feist found the end zone from two yards out, and Burns led 14-7.

Burns made it 21-7 on their next drive as Feist scored on a 38-yard run with 8:26 left in the first half.

An interception by Hueckman set the Burns offense up at the Kennedy 47, and on first down, Feist threw a 32-yard strike to Trace Tiller to give the Hilanders a first down at the Trojans’ 15. Two plays later, Davies caught a scoring pass from Feist, and Burns led 29-7 after the two-point conversion.

Kennedy fumbled on the ensuing kickoff, and Garrett Blackburn ran in the touchdown from eight yards out to finish off the three-play, 23-yard drive.

The Hilanders made it 43-7 on an 18-yard TD pass from Feist to Blackburn with 34 seconds left to go in the half.

The Trojans received the second half kickoff, but Tiller got the Burns offense back on the field with an interception at the Hilanders’ 42.

The turnover eventually resulted in an 8-yard scoring pass from Feist to Trey Recanzone, and a 50-7 Burns lead.

Early in the fourth quarter, Recanzone put the final points on the board with a 60-yard run through the Kennedy defense.

The Hilanders (10-0) will face Union/Cove at 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 15, at Corbett Memorial Field, with the winner advancing to the semifinals to play the winner of the Regis-Gold Beach matchup.

The other two quarterfinal games have Central Linn playing at Heppner and Oakland at Knappa.

Joe Steven Duff 1943-2014

Posted on November 12th in Obituaries

Joe Steven Duff passed away Oct. 28 at his home in Hines.

Joe was born Aug. 4, 1943 in Ontario. The eldest son of Audrey and Evelyn Duff, Joe grew up primarily in the Nampa, Idaho area where he enjoyed and participated in a wide array of activities, including agriculture, rodeo, music, sports and hunting. Joe attended Nampa High School, where he excelled in football and rodeo. Upon graduating in 1961, Joe Attended college at Treasure Valley Community College and Utah State, where he continued to enjoy participation in football and rodeo.

Joe met Rosalie Looney in 1964, and the two were married Aug. 7 1965, in a union that would span nearly five decades and produce five children which he loved very much, and they would live primarily in Oregon for the entirety of their marriage. Throughout his life, Joe worked in various agricultural fields while also driving short and long-haul semi-trucks. He continued to drive truck until his retirement from AGL in 2013. During retirement, Joe would continue to drive truck for various companies around Burns and Hines when they would ask, and enjoyed watching football and rodeo on television.

Joe was the embodiment of a “man’s man;” big, strong, hard-working, and always quick to help others in need. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather and friend, who was both cowboy and trucker. Blessed with a joking, easy personality, Joe never met a stranger he couldn’t talk to, and was quick to make himself known at the local truck stops. Morning coffee with “the guys” was a daily ritual, but Joe’s most precious moments were times spent with family, especially the grandkids.

Joe is survived by his wife of 49 years, Rosalie Looney Duff; three sons, Rick of Boise, Idaho, Billy of Burns and Mike (Carissa) of Kuna, Idaho; daughter, Bonnie (Robert) of Fruitland, Idaho; 11 grandchildren, Emylee, Tila, Austin, Devon, Danielle, Carl, Christian, Joshua, Bryson, Keira and Brianna; and brothers, Gregg (Kathy) of Salem and Phil (Glena) of Caldwell, Idaho.

He was preceded in death by his parents, A.M. and Evelyn Duff of Boise, and daughter, Carla Duff.
