Junior quarterback Gunnar Amos scored Coeur d’Alene’s first and last touchdowns of the Vikings’ 45-38 victory over Highland in a 5A state football semifinal Friday evening in Holt Arena. What happened in between was something Amos and his teammates will never forget. On their quest to a third consecutive state championship, the Vikings forced turnovers on three consecutive offensive plays from Highland late in the fourth quarter, converted all three into touchdowns and turned a seven-point deficit into a lead they would not relinquish/Chase Glorfield, Idaho State Journal.
