..,. ~i NMHS volleyball season ends page B-3 ogs on Victory keeps North Mason football team's playoff hopes afive By EMILY HANSON emily@masoncoun corn Without North Mason's defense and special teams, Friday night's game may have turned out differ- ently. As it was, the Bulldogs beat Bremerton 21-14 in Bremerton, keeping North Mason's playoffhopes a reality. The game was North Mason's fi- nal 2A Olympic League contest of the season. "Our defense and special teams played really well," head coach Jeff Bevers said. "We were able to limit Bremerton's good running back (se- nior Calvin Cardwell) from breaking any real big runs and our pass de- fense was really solid." Cardwell rushed for 138 yards on 23 carries, but didn't score for Bremerton. The Bulldogs had just enough offense. They collected 95 passing yards from junior quarterback Matt Becker, who was 4-for-9 through the air with one touchdown. They also had 75 rushing yards. "It was a hard-fought game played in very difficult field conditions," Bevers said. "Our kids did a great job of being patient and took advantage of opportunities as they came." With the victory, the Bulldogs (4- 4) still have a shot at the postseason. see BULLDOGS, page B-5 S Final regular season game tomorrow in Olympia By EMILY HANSON emily@masoncounty, corn When the Shelton football team's bus broke down in Nisqually Valley on Friday night on the way to Mount Tahoma, head coach Matt Hinkle worried the Highclimbers would lose focus. They didn't. "They came out real focused and were able to put up 21 points in the first quarter and coasted from there," Hinkle said. Shelton's bus ride home was more pleasant after a 34-7 win over the Thunderbirds. see CUMBERS, page B-5 Journal photo by Emily Hanson Thursday, Oct. 30, 2014 -Mason County Journal - Page B-1 Lady 0wls wins at home page B-7 Shelton singles player takes 2nd at league By EMILY HANSON emily@masoncounty, com For more than 20 years, Shelton hasn't had a singles player reach the championship round at the league tournament. Justin Demattos changed that. The SHS senior reached the fi- nals of the 3A Narrows League Tournament on Saturday at Capi- tal City Tennis Center in Tumwa- ter. Although he finished second, Demattos said he wasn't disap- pointed. "The championship game was my best," he said. "(Mount Tahoma's Janrick Peros) was a state-level player. I think I scored more points on him than anyone else did." Demattos was right. Peros won 6-4, 6-3. Demattos' seven points were more than Peros' previous opponents scored on combined. "The kid who took first was really good," Demattes said. "It was good I played ag~t him. I also followed Demattos league second.
