GLIDE — It was not a good home opener for the Glide Wildcats on Friday.

Glide (1-1) got a 3-yard touchdown run from Bryce McComb, a lineman, in the fourth quarter.

"We just got beat in all phases of the game," Glide coach Aaron Towne said. "Coquille is a good football team. Our guys just got outhit. We had a lot of missed opportunities and have a lot to work on."

Gunner Yates ran for two TDs and caught a scoring pass for the Red Devils (2-0).

The Wildcats travel to Reedsport next Friday for a nonleague contest.
