Mistakes plagued the Coeur d’Alene Vikings from start to finish Friday. And the visiting Skyline Spartans of Sammamish capitalized on all of the Vikings’ miscues, the final one being an 84-yard interception return by Drew Lunde with 2:21 left as the two-time defending Washington 4A state football champs downed Coeur d’Alene 38-23. Skyline returned two interceptions for touchdowns and recovered two of six CdA fumbles. CdA’s defense seemingly played with poor field position throughout. “We can’t turn the ball over that much,” a disappointed CdA coach Shawn Amos said. “Fumbles (and) interceptions. “You can’t beat a team like that when you turn the ball over like that”/Greg Lee, SR.

Question: Which local high school football team do you support?
