(OCT. 5, 2018) – The Roseburg football team heads on the road for Medford tonight in search of its first win away from home. The Tribe will face South Medford at Spiegelberg Stadium on the Panthers’ homecoming night. Roseburg is hoping to snap a two-game skid against the defending conference champs, but the team’s depth has taken a hit with a number of key injuries.
Roseburg and South Medford kickoff tonight at 7 p.m. Tune in for broadcast coverage starting at 6:45 p.m. on 1490 The Score or watch online at 541radio.com.
In the 3A Special District 2 North, it will be a battle of the conference’s best defense and offense when Sutherlin hosts Harrisburg. The Bulldogs have given up the fewest points of any team in the division – an average of 12 points allowed per game. The Eagles have by far put up the most points of any team in the division, averaging 49 points per game.
Which side will give way? Kickoff is slated for 7 p.m. from Sutherlin High. Tune in for coverage starting at 6:45 p.m. on i101 FM.
In the Special District 2 South Division, Douglas and South Umpqua are trying to get back on their feet after losing their first league game.
The Lancers won’t have an easy task as they host Cascade Christian, ranked No. 4 by a vote of the coaches statewide. South Umpqua has been dealing with injuries and will be playing shorthanded, but they get the Challengers at home at Kent Wigle Stadium. Kickoff is at 7 p.m.
The Douglas Trojans have struggled through the first five weeks of the season and remain winless. They’ll look for a home upset against Brookings-Harbor, which has not lost to a team from Oregon. The Bruins’ only blemish was a 35-0 loss to Del Norte from California. The contest kicks off at 7 p.m.
