Senior quarterback Tyler Harshfield produced six touchdowns Oct. 9 for Wallowa High School and directed the Cougars' unstoppable offense in a 58-26 victory over Pine Eagle High in Halfway.

Wallowa bounced back from the previous week's loss at undefeated Imbler and evened it's record in Old Oregon at 1-1. The Cougars' overall mark improved to 4-2.

Harshfield scored four of his touchdowns on scrambles. He ran 20 times and totaled 204 yards. Jake Johnson and Cody Green also raced to the end zone. Meanwhile, Harshfield added two more touchdowns by hitting receivers Ronald Gladden and Mark Jamerson. Wallowa's passing game garnered 240 yards on 14 completions out of 24 attempts. Gladden had 139 yards on six receptions.

However, Pine Eagle matched Wallowa in the first half. The Cougars clung to a 28-26 edge at the break.

"I think we were still a little hung over from the Imbler game," Wallowa coach Bill Robb said. "(The Spartans) did a lot of tricks, but once we figured them out, we came out a little ornery, started taking some initiative and shut them down. We held them to just two first-downs after halftime."

The Cougars will play the rest of their regular season games at home. First, they will host Powder Valley on Oct. 16. Kickoff will happen at 2 p.m.
