'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

It took four weeks, but Bo Teets has his first win as a head football coach as California knocked off Canevin, 28-14, in a Black Hills Conference game.

The Trojans (1-3, 1-3) jumped to a 14-0 first quarter lead, upped the margin to 20-0 and were never in trouble against the Crusaders (2-3, 1-3).

“It feels really good to win one, but we don't want to stop here,” said Teets. “In retrospect, the way we played the first three games against good teams, if we continue to play with that kind of intensity we can have a good season.

“We think we can be a playoff team. We're playing to win every week.”

Corey Adams ran 12 yards for a touchdown and then James Bongiorno rambled 22 yards for another score to make it 14-0.

Lester McGriff made it 20 -0 with a 48-yard run in the second quarter.

The Trojans scored their final touchdown when Demetri Clements went 25 yards before halftime to make it 28-7.

Clements rushed for 132 yards for California.

“We got off to a good start and had a couple of drives bog down in the second half,” Teets said. “But all in all, I thought we played a good game. I'm happy for the kids.”

Canevin quarterback Reid Reslosky hit on 10 of 22 passes for 174 yards and two touchdowns.

Washington 35, Yough 13

Even without Shai Mc-Kenzie, Washington can still play a pretty mean football game.

Just ask the Cougars, who were on the losing end in the Interstate Conference game.

The Prexies (4-0, 4-0) jumped out to a 20-0 lead and never looked back. They led 28-7 going into the fourth quarter.

Jonathan Spina passed for 133 yards and a touchdown and ran for a score for Washington.

Yough (2-2, 2-2) got 132 yards passing from Tyler Donahue, who also scored on a 46-yard run.

Nick Payne had 76 yards rushing on seven carries, including a TD, for the Cougars and Clayton Waldron caught six passes for 58 yards.

Beth-Center 80, Bentworth 0

The Bulldogs (4-0, 4-0) had no problem dismantling the winless Bearcats (0-4, 0-4) in this Tri-County South mismatch.

Matt Riggle scored four touchdowns for the Bulldogs and Jason Stay, Nico Brown and Anthony Welsh had two each in the rout.
