COQUILLE HIGH SCHOOL: 48
The road and quality opponents continue to make for a rough start to the season for the Phoenix football team.
The Pirates dropped a 48-0 decision to host Coquille on September 9. Phoenix is 0-2 on the young season and will visit St. Mary's on Friday night. Game time is 7 pm at Lithia and Driveway Fields in Medford.
It appeared the Pirates would compete early at Coquille as they moved the ball throughout the first quarter. Jackson Selden led the early surge, finishing with six first-half catches for 115 yards.
The defending 2A state champion Red Devils got moving as the half progressed, turning a scoreless tie into a 34-0 halftime lead. Coquille did most of its damage on the ground.
While the Phoenix passing game was slowed in the second half, Kody Martin provided some definite highlights. The freshmen running back finished the night with 70 yards, including a pair of runs when he bounced off would-be tacklers for long gains.
