Coeur d’Alene 31, Highland 28

The Coeur d'Alene Vikings overcame the last hurdle of adversity. Coeur d'Alene sophomore quarterback Austin Lee scored from 15 yards out with 47 seconds remaining to lift the Vikings past the No. 1-ranked Highland Rams 31-28 in the State 5A championship football game Friday at the Kibbie Dome. Lee was pressed into fulltime duty two weeks ago when senior starter Gunnar Amos broke his ankle. He stepped up at the biggest time Friday. CdA (9-3) captured its third state title in the last four years. Highland finished the season 11-1/Greg Lee, SR/NWPrepsNow. Game summary here.
