(Photo by Eric Rinehart)by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Statistically speaking it should have been a rout. Wellington accumulated 426 yards in total offense to Augusta’s 199 for more than a 2 to 1 margin. But then there were those pesky turnovers.The Wellington football team would beat Augusta 27-13 Friday evening in the season opener. The Crusaders will see better opponents this season than Augusta, so this may have been a good time to commit five turnovers – four of them recovered by the opponents.While Wellington head coach Tyler Ryan said fans should not expect to see the same numbers quarterback Trevor Nance and receiver Colin Reichenberger would combine for compared to 2013, they still had quite a few.Nance would throw for 280 yards, 154 of those to Reichenberger. Austin Dunn would be the workhorse for the Crusaders gaining 133 yards on 30 carries including the bulk of the yards late when Wellington was in need of winding down the clock to victory.The Crusaders never trailed in this ball game and Augusta never made a significant run. But the Orioles never went away either.Wellington opened the game with a 8-play 80 yard drive that was culminated with a 6-yard touchdown throw from Nance to Reichenberger.After the two teams exchanged punts, Augusta attempted and missed a field goal deep in Wellington territory. After Dunn ran up the middle for 6 yards, Reichenberger got a dump off pass in the flat and outran his two receivers for a 74 yard touchdown to give the Crusaders a 13-0 lead.Wellington would commit two turnovers – one off a punt and then one on a sack. The defense, who kept the Augusta offense rattled all night, held the Orioles the first time, but not the second.Augusta scored on a Dustyn McEachern 1 yard plunge to put the Orioles on the board 13-7.Remington Gilkey makes this unassisted tackle on Raef Hilt in the second quarter (Photo by Eric Rinehart)Wellington responded with a 65-yard drive that was capped by a Dunn 4-yard touchdown run with 58 seconds in the first half. The PAT made it Wellington 20-7.The defense again held Augusta to start the second half and then a big Reichenberger punt return put the Crusaders in business at the Oriole 31.Nance would rush 10 yards on a 4th and 9 to give the Crusaders a first down at the 20. But that was negated with another fumble.Augusta moved the ball upfield but was forced to punt and Wellington quickly got back into enemy territory on a screen pass from Nance to Dunn. The Crusaders moved in front by two touchdowns three plays later when Nance rolled out and threw a 27-yard zinger to Reichenberger at 2:16 in the third to make it 27-7.The Crusaders would have one last fumble in them in the fourth quarter that would thwart what should have been a nail-shutting touchdown drive. Instead, it was Augusta doing the touchdown drive that was capped by a Raef Hilt 4-yard touchdown run at the 5:45 mark.Wellington would recover the ensuing onside kick and the Crusaders would drive out the clock, eventually taking a knee deep inside the Augusta 10.

Woodland mans challenging life helped him become strong

first_imgWOODLAND — During his 96 years on Earth, George Tsugawa was jailed in a Japanese internment camp, forced to cope with rampant racism and worked his way out of poverty, to name just a few of his hardships.Today, he owns a thriving nursery in Woodland and is frequently seen supervising his business, cracking jokes with customers and employees. According to Tsugawa, the obstacles in his life helped him become resilient.“The experiences that I’ve gone through, with the internment and this and that, it makes you a stronger person,” he said. “That could be something I’d like to pass onto people, to become strong and never give up.”ImprisonedTsugawa was born in Everett, but he spent most of his childhood in Hillsboro, Ore. His parents, immigrants from Japan, ran a small produce market.After his father died when he was about 20, his family moved to Portland.The attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941, changed their lives.“We, as Japanese, were not trusted at all,” he said. “They wanted us rounded up as quick as possible and put behind bars so they could keep an eye on us. We could’ve been a bunch of spies, you know.”last_img read more
