Ty Holgate got his wish. Late Friday afternoon the temperature began to drop, the wind picked up and rain turned to snow. Ideal conditions for a senior running back operating behind a senior-laden offensive line. Holgate rushed for 177 yards and two touchdowns and the Vikings piled up nearly 400 ground yards in a 42-14 victory over visiting Capital in a 5A state semifinal. “That’s what I was hoping for,” Holgate said of the snowy weather that left a trace of the white stuff on Viking Field. “That way we can run the ball.” The victory puts Coeur d’Alene (8-3) in the state championship game for the fourth straight season. The Vikings will face No. 1 Highland (11-0), which defeated Rocky Mountain 24-6, in the Kibbie Dome in Moscow on Friday/Jim Meehan, SR. More here.
