Cougs down Ducks

Published October 20, 2018 / by Steve Berentson

Great play all ’round over the ranked Oregon Ducks. Scott Hanson of the Seattle Times wrote: “…the first half was a complete and total annihilation. The Cougars led 27-0. They outgained the Ducks 295 to 39, ran 50 plays to Oregon’s 18 and led in time of possession 22:47 to 7:06. The defense was so good in the first half that there was enough cushion for Washington State to withstand Oregon’s second-half rally and still prevail 34-20 in the Pac-12 North showdown.” Go Cougs! 


About Steve Berentson
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
