Oak Harbor rallies; Prep leads 10-7 at half


There were the first two Prep drives – the second of which ended in a 29-yard Mat Barker field goal. Then there was the rest of the half.

That “rest of the half” showed what type of team Oak Harbor has.

Quarterback Marshall Lobbestael has a Pac-10 arm, appropriate as he has committed to attend Washington State. He has hit Rodrick Rumble (who should be a running back with a name like that instead of a receiver) for 26 yards on a fade that was as perfect a throw as you’ll see a high school quarterback make.

Lobbestael marched the Wildcats 80 yards in 12 plays midway through the second quarter to cut the Prep lead to 10-7, where it stands right now at halftime.

The scoring play was a 13-yard pass from Lobbestael to H-back Connor McClary, open down the middle.

The Prep defense has made some adjustments, so has Oak Harbor’s, so the second half may pivot on the first possession, with the Wildcats getting the ball first. If they score, it will make the rest of the half different.

If it stays close, however, I wouldn’t bet against Gonzaga Prep.
